8 oz on tap at the barrel house.
A: Fruit punch red with a thin white lacing. Not much to say in the way of legs.
N: Lots of candied cherries, almost to the point of being Jolly Rancher ’flavored’. Hints of peach and apricot with a lot more of the sugars coming out. Doesn’t smell particularly sour. I get a little bit of vanilla in the bottom of this, but damn, it is absolutely dominated by sweet cherries.
T: Really sweet. There’s a moderate sourness here, but it’s mostly just sweet and acidic.
M: Plenty of alcohol. There’s a heft and an oiliness to this which is slightly off putting. I really have no idea how to grade this. It’s a big huge beer, so it should be on the heavier side, I guess. On the other side, down with 12% sour beers.
O: Hawaiian fruit punch with vodka. That’s my serious description of this. It’s absolutely a confection which you should have with dessert, but it's too much for me.
Serving type: on-tap
