3.55/5 rDev -18.4%
Bottle generously shared by yourefragile.
Pour yields a reddish-brown colored brew with a short fizzy head that recedes somewhat quickly. The nose carries a strong bit of cherry and cranberry as well as underlying earthiness. Some tartness coming through, as well as fruit skin. Flavor is moderately tart but has far too much underlying sweetness. Body is medium and appropriate, but there's too much residual sweetness coming through. Pretty nice for a fruit beer, but pales in comparison to Belgian Red and, to a lesser degree, Raspberry Tart.

1745th Review on BA
Bottle NG Pilsner Glass
Purchased @Woodman’s, Kenosha, WI for 8.99
Thanks to KevanB for the glass
App- A crimson red with almost no head at all. Maybe a 1/2" of bubbles. Very still with a juice like appearance. No cling or lace.
Smell- Cherries, Apples and Cranberries. Exactly what the label says. Maybe intermixed with some wheat. It's a cherry beer, mixed with some other fruits. Smells awesome. Little bit of tart to it as well.
Taste- So I was actually really surprised by this one. It was really like the combination of both of the other fruit beers and then add it the apple/cranberries. It had a semi good balance of all the flavors and a little bit of oak behind it. Semi cough syrup like consistency of flavors as well.
Mouth- A light/medium body with a nice medium carbonation level to it. Tart cherry wheat aftertaste. With a bit of oak and cranberry. As mentioned in the taste, it was a bit like cough syrup.
Drink- For something so different this was a great tasting beer. A good amount of balanced fruits and then some oak behind it. Not sure belongs in Top 250. But I drove to freaking WI to get it.

Appearance: Pours a clear garnet color with a bubbly head that leaves quite a lot of dots and dashes behind
Smell: Fruit jello aromatics, with cherry and apple dominant and cranberry underneath
Taste: Very sweet and fruity, up front, with the cherry flavors progressing into tart cranberry and finishing with sweet apple; some tartness develops in the aftertaste, along with a hint of cinnamon red hots that lingers into the finish
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate to high carbonation; a touch puckery
Overall: There is a lot to like in the bold flavors of this beer, as well as the hint of tartness and red hot flavors; still, it is just so darn sweet that it truly becomes cloying and drinking more than a glass is a chore
Thanks, joshuaseresse, for the opportunity
