4.6/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Slightly cloudy blood red pour. Large soda-like red-tinged head. Retention is decent. Small amount of lacing.
S: Tart, overripe cherries. Then sweet cherries. Then cherry soda. Interesting.
T: Whoa. Up front it's like carbonated super sweet cherry syrup. Then it turns tart and very drying. Crisp. Very little aftertaste. The combination of sweet and tart flavors is I dare say, perfect for the style. I've never had a cherry fruit beer that even comes close. How can I not give it a 5?
M: Smooth, clean, crisp. Just right. Not watery or thin at all which I was worried about given the low ABV.
O: This is a hard one to rank. It's barely beer, BUT it's SO GOOD. For the style it is one of the very best - perhaps even THE best.

3.41/5 rDev -22%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: a deep brownish garnet color. bright red garnet colors when held to the light. not quite opaque. a finger of a reddish tan head that leaves a strong lacing on the sides.
Smell: sweet cherry juice, some wheatiness. some caramel malts. very sweet and not overly complex
Taste: opens up with cherries. comes off as sweetened cherry juice. wheat and caramel malts.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and sweet. fairly sticky too
Overall: very sweet. too much so. taste a bit too much like a kids cherry juice. not as impressive as raspberry tart.
Serving type: on-tap
