375ml bottle, 2008, best by 04-11-2030.

A great pop when I removed the cork, it pours a deep deep red with a pinkish head of foam and it brings some nice lacing.

There are sweet and sour cherries notes up front in the smell and some earthy malt but the cherries rule all.

Same goes for the taste. 3 years old and the cherries taste so fresh and vibrant; I can now see the reasoning behind the very, what I thought was, optimistic best by date. I'd say the balance between the sweetness and tartness is near perfection right now. 18 years into the future? Who knows but I reckon this beer would still be a treat.

I'm now getting an earthy character, almost Brett like but not quite. I love the sound of this brew; snap, crackle, and pop? It almost sounds like it's refermenting in my glass. ;^)

Medium bodied with a pretty high level of carbonation which, by the way, suits this beer to a T, the mouthfeel is awesome and..the beer drinks awesome as well. What a wonderful brew!

Price: $15.99 Served In: Goblet
