750 mL bottle purchased at the brewery, unknown brewing/packaging date but likely 2014; poured into their flute-ish pint glass (obtained at the brewery); drank over 30 minutes

A: 3/3 - ruby red coloration; high clarity (can both read and see through); initially frothy, pinkish head settles into a subtle glass lacing; small carbonation bubbles arising off the bottom of the glass; moderate alcohol legs

S: 10/12 - total cherry bomb from the first opening of the bottle and essentially overwhelms all other flavors - no hops, no malts, no yeast

T: 17/20 - on the front of the tongue, there is lite bitterness; this is immediately overtaken by huge cherry pie and Robitussin notes; very little alcohol or yeast flavors on the back end but finishes semi-sweet and inviting

M: 4/5 - high carbonation, low-to-moderate body, refreshing finish

T: 9/10 - essentially a one-dimensional fruit bomb but that's what the style is about? I'd put it up there with the best Belgian krieks; for $9.25/750 mL bottle at the brewery, this is a total steal that is recommended for trade if not in WI

TOTAL - 43/50
