3.73/5 rDev +2.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from their 12oz bottle...
Appearance - Pours a finger of pink head, body is a lightly hazed red, with red/amber hilights, and I'm getting some nice webbed lacing in my glass.
Smell - Wheat, sweet malt, wheat, ripe fruits, cherry
Taste - Whoah - CHERRIES! Begins with full flavored cherries with natural cherry sweetness, also some nice cherryskin tartness, I also get alot of wheat, but this becomes more prominent halfway through the sip. Longer into the finish i get some nice cherry pit bitterness and floral hops, with sweet cherry juice pockets in the mouth corners.
Mouthfeel - About medium, nice prominent flavors but not syrupy or mouthcoating, carb is medium and creamy smooth, with a few nice edges at the sides of the tongue. A very drinkable ale.
Overall - I'll tell you what - I Really Like This! There truly is a greaqt complexity and balance here - and the cherry truly tastes natural imho, not flavored or like candy at all. I eat cherries fairly often and that's what I traste - natural cherry. I get natural sweetness, and I also get that mouth-watering tartness that cherries have. I also get wheat beer characteristics, and just enough floral hop to really add an unexpected balance and depth. I think this is heads and shoulders above any wine cooler or flavored malt beverage - it'a cherry fermented ale, just like it says on the label. If you like cherries, I think you're going to LOVE this, and I like cherries ;o)

The pour is a dark blood red with a head that has a pink hue. Nose is cherries, green vegetables, and stale cereal. Taste is a bit stronger cherry, gets a touch medicinal. Finish is slightly tart, a big syrupy body and moderate carbonation. Not the best fruited beer.
