a. Cherry red, two finger head that reduces but remains.
s. Cherry, cranberry, cough syrup.
t. Sometimes wonderful, sweet cherry beer - sometimes cough syrup, sometimes good tart cherry beer. Careful what you eat while enjoying this. Profile is all over the place.
o. Good beer that I would not pass over if offered up, but would not seek.

Agree with another review, this is in between a sweet fruit beer and a fruit-flavored beer. I am having it at a point I debated having a sour, and while this is not a sour, my palate was pleased with it.
Pours a deep red, with a fair amount of carbonation. The smell is rich cherry pie, including an oatmeal crisp (topping) smell.
The taste of chert is almost wine cooler-esque, but the feel it much drier. I do get fair carbonation for a beer, any more I think could tip it to a spritzer. I also get an interesting graham cracker-like taste underneath the cherry.
For what it is, I think this works, but you should be ready for a fruit beer, to be sure. I'd go for this again in a specific case.

This is an interesting fruit beer, but very different from a lambic or a syrupy flavored beer. The beer is a beautiful red and smells/tastes of cherry juice. The beer is sweet but not overly suite. The one down side is that the beer could use a little carbonation.

From the 550 ml. embossed bottle. Sampled on May 15, 2014.
It poured a slight cloudy reddish-amber with a decent beige head that fades after a few moments. It has a nice beer appearance.
Tart cherries and cherry juice are the most abundant scent on the nose but at the same time I do clearly pick up a little yeast and malt in the background.
The mouthfeel is in the medium range but it is heavier than I expected it to be. Smooth too.
Cherry fruit flavors with a tart finale. Cherries are one of my favorite fruits so unlike some fruit beers I have a higher tolerance for cherry beers. It was a welcome beverage on a warm night like tonight.
