Out of the bottle this beer was a slightly hazy yellow. Two fingers of fine head topped it and it displayed both good retention and very good lacing. The aroma was dominated by cherries with some metallic hints behind that which makes it a little artificial. The flavors were quite sweet at first but not cloying, but they mellowed out into a maltiness before finishing with a yeast tang. The tang is a little bitter and it makes the aftertaste unpleasant. Still, I found this one quite drinkable, summery and generally pleasant. It's a good medium bodied beer and probably a great swimming in the river, getting girls bikini tops off kinda brew. Hell yeah.

The freshness date on this is June 2005 which is kind of a surprise considering this bottle has been in my fridge for like forever. Part of a holiday mix pack last Christmas I believe.
The appearance is real nice actually - big fluffy slightly off-white head sitting on top of a kinda hazy deep honey colored brew.
Smells like alcohol and cherries, a lot like Nyquil.
It has a bittersweet taste; the cherries really come through heavy though. Not as horribly unbalanced as it smells and actually finishes kind of smooth.
Mouthfeel isn't bad, medium body.
Drinkability is OK on this but not my particular favorite flavor/style. Funny... I remember liking this a lot more years ago.
