Reminiscent of fruity Belgium ales with its purposeful fermentation. Unique cherry ale wrapped in black aluminum foil tastes best served at 160 degrees Fahrenheit (pour contents into saucepan). Cognac aroma, subtle carbonation, and strong, effective 8% alcohol volume offer fine introduction. Served warm, tangy yeast-thickened cider finish perfectly purveys wintry ski lodge feel. Served cold, Sangria-like essence overtakes syrupy malts and pulpy tartness, making it perfect soda substitute (due to fizzy sweetness and pop-like appearance). The contrast between warm and cold is incredibly uncanny. Absolutely fab (but not recommended to unseasoned amateurs).
