Draught @ Sharpedge Creekhouse: Served in a great Kasteel Chalice. This one pours a dark ruby tinged brown color. There was a wisp of a tan head that left some lacing. It has a nice nose. Some cherries, and some sweet caramel malts. Some other fruits hiding down in there. The flavor is very nice. Cherries on top. A hint of tingling on the tongue. Good malt body, with some sweetness. A touch of chocolate also. I wouldn’t sit down and drink a lot of these, but I would definitely have it again!
Serving type: on-tap

Brown reddish color with a thin head with very short retention.
Strong aroma of sour cherries and caramels.
Predominant sweet flavor of cherries cough medicine, slightly sour with caramels on the background. Dry and acid aftertaste.
Medium body with good carbonation. One of the best examples of hiding such alcoholic content, at 8% abv.
Very assertive beer, it is all about cherries, cherries, and I almost forgot, cherries.

Dug up my tasting notes from well over 2 years ago. Drank the night of John & Theresa's wedding in the hotel room right before the reception. Purchased a single bottle from Pinocchio's in Media. Poured into a plastic hotel cup when I did the review. From my notes on the Comfort Inn notepad:
A: cranberry-like color w/small head that fades quick. Good carbonation. (4.0)
S: wild cherry, almost dark like aromas. (3.5)
T: tastes cherry, maybe a little too syrup, almost like kid's cough syrup. (2.5)
M: slight funk, sour, but not overwhelming, bitter. (4.0)
O: good light sour, a little too syrup-like. (3.5)
