3.58/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Lindeman's Fluted/Pilsner Glass. I've tried the apple and Framboise before (both a good but a little too sweet for me). so I'm looking forward to trying this one, hopping for a more tart taste.

I poured a little too aggressive and got a very bubbly large head, the head is a pink color has long retention (5 minutes later and still highly bubbly) and a nice lacing as it goes away. The color is a crannberry/cherry red.

The smell is a sweet cherry fruity smell (I'm expecting a sweet drink now).

Mouthfeel is not bad, sweet/tart hints, bubbly carbonation velvety consistency.

The taste is obviously of cherries, its a little too sweet, I couldn't drink the whole bottle at once. There is some tartness on the way down but not as much as I hoped for.

Overall this is a decent dessert brew, I'd have to split a bottle with a few people though because of the sweetness, truthfully, I'd rather drink a cream stout for dessert. Hopefully the next cherry beer I find is more tart/sour.
