look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Visual: Color consists of a cloudy red color. Almost looks like a creamy red. Clarity is foggy, you cannot see through the beer. Head is a light pink in color and sticks around for a long time.

Aroma:Incredibly strong aroma of fruits with cherries dominating the smell. Other smells consist of citrus, with sour and sweet notes.

Taste:The first taste is sour and a bit dry, the citrus presents itself and then fades in the sour/sweet taste with a hint of oak. This beer is like a sour patch kid, first it is sour and then it is sweet.

Mouthfeel: Medium body but not too thick with still plenty of flavor

Overall: I fell in love with this beer at a local pub called Pale Nine Ale House in San Diego. This was the beer that developed my love for sour beers. I find this beer to be a refreshing change from most other beers. It is the perfect combination of sour tastes and fruity tastes for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: rich, deep red, the colour of raspberry jam, with a faintly pink head like Himalayan sea salt, fine and fll

Aroma: vibrant berry aroma - cherry but also raspberry and currant; hints of the the tart flavour to come

Taste & Mouthfeel: the taste of cherry candy (like a life savour...better) is an immediate delight, sweet and vibrant and tart all at the same time, exciting the tastebuds to no end; cherry pie filling comes to mind - this is a great match for dessert, perfect for a rich chocolate fudge cake; fine carbonation with above average effervescence and perfect for the style, putting a buffer on the sweetness while at the same time opening up the palate to fully appreciate the fruity flavour - blackberry and currant could also be accounted; last thought - a good black cherry soda

Overall: a pure pleasure to drink, actually gets you excited, and remarkably it doesn't tire with all the sugar, a credit to the excellent carbonation; get your hands on this
