Snifter pour of murky darker amber with a decent off white head. Nose is tart fruits, jam and cran-apple. Tart flavors of fruit and smooth caramel malts, fruity acidic. It’s got a tart bite to it for sure. Full rich fruit. Enjoyable. ARH (1125) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2015
750mL bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is of tart cherries and cherry pie, slightly cranberry, apple juice, and a bit of a woody notes underneath. It pours a murky oak color with yellow-brown, soapy head that retains a medium ring with a puff of surface and leaves a decent splotchy lace on the glass. It’s highly sweet, medium sour, and medium light bitter. It’s syrupy smooth with a medium light body and fizzy carbonation. Cranberry apple juice is the prominent flavor picked up in this cider-esque beverage, with some grape notes and sour cherries. A lightly bitter, wood finish holds some secondary notes of cranberry and apple which liners with a light cloying and a touch of astringency, but rather refreshing.

Strong cherry flavor was th a nice sweet finish. Has a nice smell of cherries. Pours brownish red with no head. Had a bomber pour at home.

Bottle at share, cloudy reddish brown body, little head. Nose is cranberry and apple cider, a little malt. Taste is sweet apple cider, some cinnamon, a little astringency from the cranberry, but it’s subtle. This is sweet, almost like the sparkling apple cider. Palate is fairly light, carbonation good, nice and soft. McNeillR (2315) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 3, 2015
Big thick jammy red cloudy with a little lacing and no head. Firmly berry, sticky cherry and sweet as you like. Rich sweet cherry mulch, terse cooling jammy sweetness and smooth throughout. No kick to it. Finishes stamps of red berry and candied apple.

2014 bottle. Pours a red/brown true cranberry juice color. Aroma is an earthy cranberry and cherry with vanilla. Taste is a sweet cranberry, apple, cherry with vanilla and a malt backbone that hits at the end. Soft, lightly carbonated mouthfeel.

A dark cherry red color with a little white head around the rim. Smell is copious amounts of cherry, apple, cranberry. Taste is a sour but sweet cherry that immediately gives way to a sweet caramel malt that dries away the sour. Vanilla from the barrel as well shines through. Truly a dessert in a bottle, A vanilla cherry dream. Bravo.
