VERY hazy....no clear light coming through....peach and pink. Head is foamy and just peach tinged.
The smell s overly powdery-sweet, and a little fruity. I actually rather like it, as it takes me back to the smell of the mild sedatives I used to have to take in my childhood. I rather liked them. ;)
I think I'm one of the few who really likes this one. Very fruity, overly sweet. It has a sort of sour-sweet cherry flavour throughout, with no hop to speak of. It reminds me of the cherry soup my father used to make.
Hearty liquid, but not thick. Carbonation is minimal, and hits near the end, very quickly.
While it's not the type of beer most folks here seem to like, it's hard to deny it goes down easy and is extremely drinkable. Very nice dessert beer, r just one for when your cravng smething fruity and cold.
Serving type: bottle

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
