Update - another taste test: This time it was a bottle, 2 weeks old, chilled 24 hrs in the fridge. Almond flavor and aroma still very strong. Tastes more like a wheat, now that it is carbed. Cherry seems to have disappeared, other than the color.
*update*... If anyone is still reading this: The almond flavor has mellowed significantly! I am exited to see what the next few weeks have in store, aging-wise.
