Aroma: Sweet dessert, cherry pie, cherry, almond, berry yoghurt, caramel.
Taste: Sweet, sour and tart, cherry, almond, caramel, cinnamon, oak, with acidic notes especially on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Absolutely wonderful aroma, and while taste was enjoyable, it wasn’t as amazing as the aroma.
