Best served in a tuilp or wine glass.

Poured from a bomber into a Bruery snifter a ruby brown with a nice thick head that quickly disappears. Aroma is tart fruits sweetly soured. Cherry in the forefront Flavor hits you like a nail in the head. TARTness all day. Cherry is forefront with a touch of blackberry. Balanced-nice. Not disappointed with this collaboration.
