750ml bottle thanks to thebigredone. Poured into HF glass.
A- Pours a fairly opaque dark brownish cherry grape color with about a finger's worth of off-white head that has a retention, a slight brownish hue, and leaves sticky layered lacing. Considerable amount of carbonation- lots of consistently rising small carbonation bubbles.
S- Very fruity aroma of cherries, plums, raspberries, and grapes jumps out at you balanced with a light malty backbone. Very pleasant fragrant aroma that at first was a little bit overly sweet and fruity.
T- Cherries, plums, raspberries, grapes, and other dark fruits. Fairly sweet and very fruity, almost overly so. Very strong aftertaste of cherries and plums that lingers on the lips and palate.
M- Syrupy, decent carbonation, very easy to drink (not surprising considering the 4% abv). This is my least favorite part of the beer, in my opinion it's a little bit too syrupy and almost makes it feel like you are just drinking fruit syrup.
O- This was definitely an interesting beer that I enjoyed trying. Probably the fruitiest beer that I've had and extremely sweet. I enjoyed drinking it, but it was definitely a little bit too syrupy and fruity for my taste. If you like really fruity beers then I definitely recommend checking this out.
