11.2 oz bottle into a wine glass.

A: Pours a dark pink color. The head is a finger high, with a light pink shade. Cripes on a stick, this one just LOOKS girly. Head retention is very good, though. A small ring of lacing is left on the glass.

S: This actually smells like a bunch of cherries in a glass, rather than cherry pie filling or (shudder) artificial cherry sweetness. I'm genuinely surprised how natural the cherries smell. Minor props to this brewery for adding a natural artificial sweetener (stevia) to it. Belgian yeast is very subtle, but not non-existent - it helps balance the cherry notes.

T: The aroma betrayed a natural scent of cherries. The flavor profile, however, smacks of friggen' cherry cough drops. That's really all I get: cherry cough drops. There are gentle wisps of natural cherry flavor trying to poke through, but all the finishing stevia notes make it sugary as fuck. Actually, it becomes pretty decent after many sips, to the point where I half-like it.

M: Sweet sweet sweet sweet sweet. It's pretty much as sweet and as hard to drink as one might expect from an 8% fruit beer. The carbonation is concealed by all the syrupy sugar.

O: It's a weird mix of natural cherry and artificial sugar (stevia be damned). I hated it initially, then I grew to merely dislike it, and finally I'm finding it actually acceptable. I doubt I'll be going after it again, but it does grow on the palate after a while.

On tap at Newhall Refinery in Newhall, CA.

Pours a hazy dark red with a foamy reddish-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruit punch, and fruit punch candy aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet fruit punch and fruit punch candy flavors on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable but is not very beer like in my opinion.

Serving type: on-tap
