thanks to Shango42, i've been holding this one for a while. had some friends over and poped it.

a - poured a chestnut red with a think off white frothy head. lacing was chunky.

s - cherry bomb. sour cherries. smells great.

t - sour cherry deliciousness. this is shocking that a beer can be like this. what a flavor! some brown sugar mixed in with the cherry.

m - not overly fizzy...decent body.

o - overall, this is a really impressive brew. it is unique and a great representation on what a beer can be and still be great. short's should take note...these guys know how to make a vegetable beer.

750 mL bottle poured into a goblet. Thanks to MarcatGSB for this bottle!

Appearance - Dark, dull, red with a pinkish, but only slightly pinkish, head. Less brilliant looking than the Raspberry Tart. Great retention, great lacing. Aside from a dismal color, it looks quite nice.

Smell - Fresh cherry aroma. Nothing artificial about it. It smells like a box of cherries.

Taste - Slightly tart cherries, but nothing more than the cherries themselves. A hint of sweetness at the end, but it doesn't build the way the Raspberry Tart did.

Mouthfeel - Crisp and light. The sweetness is really under control with this one. I put this bottle away way too quickly.

Overall - A glass of cherries. If that's what you're looking for, great. It's still tough to rate these bizarre beers.
