750ml bottle with no freshness date. Obtained in a recent trade. Served in a wine glass.
Appearance: Pours red/brown in color with 2 fingers of a light tan head that dissipates to thin foam coating and thick collar. Leaves a good amount of spotty lacing. Body is lightly hazy but still relatively clear.
Smell: Tons of fruit aromas. Apple, sweet cherries, honey, hint of mellon and a light tartness, which I'm guessing is the cranberries.
Taste: Same as the aroma. Huge fruit character, apple juice, maraschino cherries, red apple skin. There's a slight cranberry character in the aftertaste, but you have to reach to find it. The beer is mostly sweet on the palate, but is balanced just enough with a slight tartness and very light sourness.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and crisp with medium lively carbonation. No alcohol whatsoever.
Overall: Easily the best straight up fruit beer I've ever had. Not super complex, but it's not supposed to be. The beer is a canvas with which to showcase the fruit and it does it almost perfectly. This is definitely worth seeking out. If it was available in my area, it would be the perfect beer to stock up on and drink during the summer.
