I was given this one as a "I know you don't like beer but try this. It is hardly beer at all!".

Appearance - I gave this a 3.75. It had a fluffy magenta head that quickly went away. The liquid was a dark rich red. Nifty enough I suppose. Murky with interesting sediments which is not a bad thing.

Smell - 3. It gets better as it warms up (which is why I gave it a 3) and smells more natural but if you serve this one cold you will be punished by a big whiff of cough drops. Yuck!

Taste - Sweet but not syrupy. Natural cherry, dryness and a bit of something else. But mostly cherry. When cold the whole cough drop thing pretty much bludgeons everything else to death but let it get to about room temp and it becomes sweeter and more acidic. Like real fruit even!

Mouthfeel - Mercifully it did not linger. Gave me a pucker and a dryness like vinegar.

Overall - Not bad, not maybe for me, but not bad.
