I know I may be in the minority in this one, but this beer tastes like straight teriyaki sauce. It may just be the bottle I drank (I hope so) but the taste was just horrible. The coloring and mouthfeel is alright, but otherwise, avoid this at all costs.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 1

A: Very nice copper/ruby color with a moderate head.

S: Smell is of sour cherries.

T: Taste is strongly sour fruit. This is probably what they were striving for, but not my cup of tea. My fault for not carefully reading the description before I picked it up at the store.

MF: Crisp, but I was really forcing myself to drink it.

D: Very poor, but if you like this style, it is probably good. Again, no offense to SA, I wouldn't finish more than one glass. I used the rest of the bottle to baste a roast chicken (that came out pretty good).

Serving type: 22 oz. bottle
