Bottle... Pours murky and brown with no lasting head. Big cherries and big vanilla in the nose. Light to medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor boasts sour cherries and yeasty breadiness. Finishes sour with lightly bitter, woody tannins. Bottle supplied by a very generous landhoney!
