The beer looks good. It leaves a fair amount of lacing and foam at the top, and lots of little bubbles rise to the top. The bubbles are hard to make out because the beer is opaque which is surprising because of how light gold the color is. The smell is unlike anything I've had in a beer before. It's crisp, light and hoppy, but the biggest characteristic is the cherry sweet smell like juice, but it isn't a dark cherry. More like rainier cherries. The taste is pretty simple. There is malt-cherry sweetness and the other taste associated with cherries: a tart quality. It's a very accurate, and rich cherry taste (like cherry pie or cherry liquor) and not at all like a artificial/candied flavor. Extra points for nailing the "cherry" part of the beer, although the beer gets sour the warmer it gets. The mouthfeel is above average. Smooth enough, but the beer really is as light as it looks.
