550 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 9/20/2013. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby red color with a 1-2 finger dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of sweet and tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of authentic cherry notes and moderate bready malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big sweet and tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy herbal bitterness and a fair amount of tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of sweet/tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic robustness and balance of big authentic fruit flavor with moderate bready malt sweetness; with a good sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly creamy/syrupy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome fruit beer. All around great robustness and balance of authentic cherry flavor and moderate bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

From a 550 ml bottle into a samuel smith pint glass. Beer is a deep red copper color. Foam is pink!! No lace from this beer.

Wow this beer is so sweet. Reminds me of cherry wine from travers city Michigan. Lots of carbonation on the toung as well. Twang of viniger here as well

The best I can describe the smell is cherry and cranberry. No malts and no hops.

Very unique for me. I can't say I've ever had anything like this. I love Sam smith and this is a cool beer from a classic brewer.
