look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A- pinkish orange with huge chunks of thick yeast sediment and a fluffy white head. The sediment is unappealing in this style and I ended up transferring glasses to remove most of it.

S- grainy pilsner, a touch of sulfur, light green apple and just a little fruitiness that isn't distinctly cherry.

T/M- pretty laid back and mellow flavor with some doughy grain and yeasty components giving a pizza crust character with a finish that's moderately full, syrupy and very lightly sweet and sour leaving a very light cherry taste in the finish.

O- I feel like I spent the entirety of this beer searching for cherry beyond the yeast clumps and doughy pilsner taste. Comes out as a fairly thick, moderately sweet lager. Not bad but not good for a fruit beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Poured chilled in shaker pint at home.

A: outstanding bloom, great carbonation, 3-finger head; ruddy dark pink color
S: A combination of excellent fruit aroma and stale metallic smell makes this a wash; no hop aroma
T: Cherry is very strong and flavorful--it's by far the most dominant element; hop taste is pretty minimal; sweet malt, lighter roast level; not bitter; little aftertaste, goes down nicely
M: very vigorous and engaging

For a fruit beer, I think this is excellent overall; if you're not a fan of the style, you won't be impressed
