4.13/5 rDev -0.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
12 oz bottle packaged on February 3, 2011
A: Dark red with a big head that retains well.
S: Initially tart cherries, which I quickly lose and don't pick up again. Yeast and sweet malt. The nose is pretty subdued.
T: Again, starts with tart cherries, but I struggle to pick them up as I continue to drink. Brown-sugary (yet not very sweet) malt and yeast. The finish is dry and slightly bitter, and the alcohol is well hidden.
M: Medium with full carbonation. There's some alcohol warming.
O: I hadn't expected to like this beer as much as I did: I was afraid that the cherries would be less subtle and integrated and that the beer's sweetness would be too much. The drinkability is high for a beer of this abv.
