Tried ages ago, reviewed from notes.
Pours a rude red colour, head is disappointing, just a thin crown although a quick swill revives it. Lacing is quite decent, but not that sticky. Looks OK.
Smells quite sweet. Marshmallow and a big aroma of bubblegum on there. Toffee, with a big cherry medicine note. Fluffy and sweet but some odd notes in there as well. Yeah, a bit like kiddy medicine in a lot of ways. Will reserve judgement until I taste.
Taste is not what I expected at all, really. Sour, but not really in a satisfying, wild ale kind of way. It tastes just 'off', with big phenolic notes, cherry liqueur, some unripe strawberry and fresh fruit pudding. Fruity, mostly, not majorly sour but not sweet either - tastes a lot like underripe fruit. Could use more sweetness, or just more complexity to the tartness.
Brassy body: bold and solid really, with a nice dry finish. Very good.
Can't say I'm a big fan. I feel it's a bit lacking on some sides and the dominant flavour needs to be toned a bit more. Refreshing enough, though.

A- Pink honey. Big bubble head that runs away as fast as it can. Hmmmm curious
S- Smell the pucker. Sour cherry as it suggests
T- Pucker before anything. Pretty sour. Taste is good but seems to be lacking depth (I guess it is only 5.4% though)
M- LOTS of bubbles. Definite drool factor
O- It's good. Was hoping for something a bit heavier in the mouth, but not at all disappointed.

750ml bottle poured into a tulip glass. Color is an apple red with some noticable carbonation and solid head. Smell is actually pretty non existant which I was very suprised by really nothing noticeable. Taste is nice good balance of fruit and sour. Mouthfeel is clean finishes crisp with a slight tart aftertaste which I want with this style. Overall decent beer but certainly not spectacular.
