Like cherry coke, the fascination made me try this one. It had the same effect. I t tasted like someone had dropped a Hall's Brothers cough drop into a beer and refused to dump it. The cherry is very annoying.

I had this previously on draft, and the bottled version seemed to have more flavor. All in all, a refreshing brew..if unspectacular. A nice appearance..light copper with a decent head. Smell was mainly a strong cherry aroma...with virtually no wheaty elements. Taste likewise was strong on cherry, but not a whole lot more...This might be an excellent alternative for cider drinkers. Medium mouthfeel. Drinkability was ok....although the overemphasis on cherry was a bit much. If you like the flavor of cherries, try it. If not, I would stay away.
