This stuff never really actively fermented. I was very disappointed until I took a taste before bottling. Very cherry! Very dry. It has been in bottles now for 3 months and the taste is growing on me. It still has that "cherry pie-filling" flavor, but it's good. If you like cherries, you'll love this brew. It probably weighs in at 8% abv.
