look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle with no freshness date poured into a tulip glass, and consumed on October 19, 2013. I believe this cost about $8 at the Brewery Ommegang.

A- Big, cotton candy pink colored head, highly carbonated transparent, dark ruby colored body, and the many carbonation bubbles are small and lively. The whole look is reminiscent of a ruby red champagne.

S- Sweet cherry and raspberry in the nose. Smells like the cherry cough drops I remember from childhood, and the Chambord I remember from adulthood.

T- Berries, cherries that start sweet and end with a soft, tart kick. Again reminiscent of Chambord and slightly medicinal. Tastes more like a champagne and punch drink than beer, but there is still something in the aftertaste the let's you know you are drinking something brewed with malted grains. It is subtle but there.

M- Mid bodied and a bit syrupy, but very crisp and refreshing. Lots of tingly carbonation finishes with a mild semi-sweet bite.

O- I drank this with my sister who doesn't like beer, but she liked this and said, “It's drinkable”. So, that should give you some idea of what you are getting yourself into. However, I do like beer and also enjoyed it as a change of pace brew. Something to wake up some of the lesser used parts of my palate. When I go back to Ommegang, I will pass on it in favor of other options, but it is far from a bad beverage and wholly appropriate in some situations. Namely the situations where you are trying to please someone who goes for sweet, fruity drinks over beer, or after you and your European girlfriend just rode your Vespa to a harborside bistro on the Mediterranean coast.
