3/5 rDev -4.5%
from a 12 ounce bottle into a glass. average head, with more lacing than i'd expect. smell of cherries immediately tackles the nose. reminds me of cherry yogurt, some wheat, not much though. this one started off good, then got worse with every sip. the fruit seems processed, syrupy. tart pucker i did not prefer. did not improve with warming up, thought of marciano cherries or a flat slurpee at the end.
one is fine but any more would be overkill.

Nice copper color with a fluffy cream colored head. The bubbles are not that tight, but OK. The head lasts really well and leaves a little Belgian-lace. The aroma is very inviting, fruity - and yes, cherry - with sweet malt. A touch candyish but not off putting in any way. It has a medium body and the mouthfeel is fairly full. The flavor has a good combination of fruit and sweet, very lightly caramel malt. It does develop a somewhat medicinal, cherry cough drop flavor after a few sips. There's very little bitterness and yet it doesn't seem cloying; although it does seem to coat the tongue (must be the combination of residual malt sugars and extract flavor). The finish is limited, but the aftertaste lingers and seems to flip flop between a nice fruitiness and the medicinal quality. Overall, this beer seems to have improved over the years. A nice change of pace during the hot summer months.
