Appearance - reddish iced-tea color, pinkish cap is a bit watery but with some worthy legs of lace.

Aroma - tart cherry aroma, soft with an interesting cinnamon edge.

Taste - definitely a sweeter, almost cidery beer. A few metallic noted outta the gate. A nice tart bite on the swallow, Michigan cherries of course. Slightly oxidized on the aftertaste, but the sample is aged a little beyond what I would recommend. Still finishes tasty, tart, and dry.

Mouthfeel - crisp and refreshing, again reminiscent of a cider. Average body a good fit for the style.

Overall - good spring/summer beer, provided you like cherries. Not as stately as Quelque Chose, but certainly more sessionable.

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!
