koleminer20 (3209) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2016
375 mL bottle shared with Gus and ebone1988. The pour is a dark dark purple with a deep red frothy head that falls to a thick collar leaving a pretty spotty lace. The aroma is interesting. There is a lot of cherry juice. A decent tartness to it, but it's a sweet dry wine thing happening. There is a touch of spice on the finish. The flavor is dry and winey. There is a definite influence here. It's dry and lightly tart but offers a sweetness and a dry winey finish. The mouth feel is thicker and lightly carbed. The aftertaste is definitely dry wine. This isn't bad, but not what I was hoping for. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared in a three way....Mikkeller cherry tasting with koleminer20 and Gus. Aroma is cherry juice, sugar, skins, real nice. Appearance is darker red, pink head. Taste is sweet cherry, slight sour, some spice that reminds me of the apple orchard, dry. Mouthfeel is medium body, light crisp carbonation, dry, cherry skin aftertaste. Overall, this is very good, but slightly off.
