3.88/5 rDev -11.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pour: Small head that dissipates quickly and leaves no lacing but does have the added sound of bubbles popping vigorously in the evening.
Smell: Like cherries almost like a halls but alluring, not so much like medicine, but like a cherry soda.
Tastes: Very tart, lots of cherry, and sweet. Tart sticks to your lips and gentle bitterness left on the back of tongue.
Body: Little carbonation but balances well with the tart. The sweetness is a little more then I care for but is refreshingly different then most that try to capture the sweet side.
Fruit is not my favorite style but NG does this nicely in an unthreatening way. I wouldn't have another by myself but would share one with some wine loving friends.
Serving type: bottle

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
