A: Bold, cloudy, ruby red. Very loud carbonation.

S: Musty brett funk, vinegar, and cherry jolly ranchers.

T: The tartness is there but overwhelmed by the artificial-tasting flavor of cherries and a bitter, cough syrup finish. Honestly, this tastes a lot like Robitussin.

M: Not sure if the slight syrupy sensation is there or an artifact of the cough syrup taste.

O: Happy to have tried it, more than happy to never have it again. Given that I traded something quite good for this, I might have to power through this one.

Reddish copper brown colored beer, evenly clouded with a white, small tight head. Aroma is loaded with cherries, slightly funky/brettified, lightly tart, sweet and woody, a touch of red grapes, musky, and something similar to raspberries. Taste is pleasantly tart, packed with cherry, reminiscent of tart cranberry juice, fermented fruit, and again some woody musk funkiness.

Very enjoyable beer. Tart funky cherry pie...

Can - sticky label, from the fridge into an oversize tulip.

Pour is gorgeous, not a word I would typically associate with beer. But this looks like cranberry juice with a thin layer of bubbles and a crispness around the edges.

Sour, dry nose.

Taste is underwhelming compared to the pour but in-line with the aroma; this is crisp, lightly sour with a good fruit presence.

Mouth is light, fizzy up front, almost nothing at the end. The carbonation is very faint, but there is enough to tickle your nose.

Really enjoyed this - missed it at the Brewpub so happy to have a second bite of the apple.
