On-tap @ the River Room, Whole Foods Boise ID. Served in a chalice.
A: Deep red, with quickly fading head.
S&T: Some vinegar and light tartness on the nose, with cherry and lemon and some funk. Malt body unfolds under the cherry and funk, lending a brown sugar quality to the beer. There is some lemon and possibly green apple here as well? Definitely not as cherry prominent as I'd hoped. Only moderately tart as well.
MF: Thinner, medium-light body with moderate carbonation.
O: Wishing for more tartness and cherry character. Not one I'd revisit.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a deep blood red with a fluffy off pink head. Very interesting looking beer and definitely not what I was expecting. Smell is very fruity, tons of cherries, lemon and lime, tart and sweet. Taste is very similar to the smell. Cherries, raspberries, funk, grape, green apple. Feel light and tart, crisp and refreshing.
Overall, enjoyable, good summer beer. A little fruity for my taste, but lots of good flavors.
