750 ml bottle, capped coated with red wax, pours a deep reddish brown in color that has a big head that doesn't last, sweet, fruity cherry aroma with a sweet and lightly sour taste of cherries, very carbonated on the tongue, finishes clean and fruity.

Reviewed from notes taken at Greg's epic Wall St. tasting

A - Pours a reddish brown, with a light pink head that quickly recedes to a small collar.

S - CRANBERRIES! (thats all I wrote, but I have a distinct memory of how one-dimensional this was)

T - A typical fruit beer: very one-dimensional, but hammers its point home quite ferociously. A tad cloying.

M - Very thin, too light and champagne-like for my tastes.

D - Very drinkable, could session this all day but for the limited distribution. However, just because you could doesn't mean you should...

Came unexpectedly in a trade from orbitalr0x. Thanks!!!

Red tinted glad to say. Off white head, fell quickly. Caramel colored out of direct light. "Marriage of wine and beer" it says.

Smells like a wild cherry life saver, with just a hint of sour. I happen to love wild cherry life savers, so this should be a good night.

Taste is the same as the scent, but the first drink is like a shockwave to the whole mouth. Eyeopener! Tons of sweetness in here.

Smooth. Dry on the finish. Carbonation is mellow.

Overall: a great treat
