Per label : "Malt Beverage brewed with cherry puree."

The aroma is a sweet cherry scent. Pours a headless rose red and slightly cloudy. Looks like a black cherry soda with less carbonation! The taste is more of a wine cooler than an ale! Cherry is bold and upfront, faint grain on the back. I noted a sediment on the bottom of bottle post pour. If this were a BMC brew it would be called a "malternative".
That being said, I liked it very much for what it is. A nice fruit flavored drink!

A very interesting beer. Looks great but smells like Coors light. It has a weird musty smell. Not so great. But it tastes pretty nice. It has a very juicy cherry flavor, followed by some grain. Goes down smooth.

If only this was sour mashed, it would add the perfect Kick. Not bad though.
