look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Serving type: On-tap in my home pub (Purchased 15.5 gallons in southern Indiana for $205 + tax) Keg was filled April 2010 and tapped September 2010. Pumping at 14psi, I get a lot of head on every pour....2/3s pint pours.

Appearance: The beer is a beautiful red-amber color with an unusual pink/white head that leaves good lacing. Everyone comments on what a 'pretty' glass of beer this is.

Smell: I can smell sweet cherries several inches from the glass....very inviting aroma.

Taste: This is a sweet cherry beer upfront with a tart cherry finish. Very low hops. It reminds me of a 'watered-down' Kasteel Rouge.

Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation...the bubbles and cherry flavors combine admirable giving this beer a cider-like quality.

Drink-ability: This is a perfect session beer. Very drinkable. I love the cherry flavor as it fades from sweet to tart. An excellent selection for the home pub.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 5

A: the light pink appearance makes for a watermelon hued brew. very unique. slightly pink ish head only leaves a rim retention.

S: smells like cherry pie. a very aromatic mix between a maltiness that comprises a pastry base and the sweet cherry filling. unlike any fruit beer i have smelled before.

T: the sweetness starts tart and sharp. mmm, moves into a very delicious cherry flavor but still very tart. very much reminds me of the apple pie snacks i used to eat as a kid.

M: medium carbonation on a light/medium body.

D: overall might be the best fruit beer ive had to date. just a delicious play between the fruit and malt. im surprised more people dont find this as enjoyable as i do.
