Enjoyed at the brewery on 2/12

Light in color; moderate to little lacing; almost red 'lager' in color; very sweet, tastes A LOT like cherry pie, and sold as such; good beer, but might be a little hard on the belly over time; probably something to enjoy after a meal; almost lambic-y without the heavy sweet.

Serving type: on-tap

Review from 9/24/11.

Had this on tap at Freshcraft (my first stop/first beer in Denver, actually). The menu listed this at 4.7% at the time.

Served in an overly stout/chubby snifter. The beer is a ruddy raspberry sherbet/mimosa color with a frothy but minumal white head.

The aroma is leafy and green at first, and then a rush of raspberry sweetness leaps forth... well, that, or maraschino cherries at least. There's also a nice mild bitterness there for balance.

Tastes sweet as hell. It is a cross between NG Belgian Red and a Lindemans Framboise. The cherry flavor is candied and slightly artificial - again the thought of maraschino cherries come to mind.

Smooth body with light carbonation.

Overall I just found this beer to be way too sweet. Not sour at all. I take issue with brewers who claim these types of beers to be Krieks/Lambics/etc. Nothing like the proper thing should be.

Serving type: on-tap
