Pours a thin head on a hazy medium straw body.
The aroma is fruity.
The taste is lots of sour fruit... cranberry.
The texture is crisp.
Nice.

This is weirdly sweet and spiced, but the maraschino on the endtaste is undeniable. Props to the name.

2011 bottle.

Hazy reddish-brown color into a large wine glass (Prairie 2nd Anniv. because it was handy). Big puff of foam, 2-3 inches of head, simmering down to about 1/2 inch, and finally settling at a thin well-retaining layer; dots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of cherry candy, little bit of cough syrup, lacto-lemon. Taste of sour cherries and dough--cherry pie, basically--lemony acid, yogurt, definite bourbon notes in the finish. Prickly mouthfeel, slightly puckering, medium body, slightly filmy in the mouth. This didn't help my already raging heartburn. Higher ABV surprisingly well-hidden. Very enjoyable overall.
