Best before 4/08/2012. Poured a murky brown with a faint reddish tinge into a tulip with two fingers of long-lasting khaki head. Mildly puckering aroma of sour cherry and funk with a hint of caramel sweetness.

Moderate carbonation and a light, fizzy mouthfeel. Intense mix of sweet cherry, grape, and sour apple up front, giving way to biscuity malt and a trace of vanilla oak on the clean finish.

For all the sourness on the nose, this beer ended up having a nice balance of sweet (with a slightly artificial note), sour, and malty that kept me sipping faster than I'd intended. I suppose I could have used a little more sour in the overall flavor balance, but this beer was still very enjoyable.

this is a favorite of mine, first introduced to me by my brother.

pours great with a good head. I find it best served slightly chilled or at room temperature. it has a beautiful color somewhere near a dark brownish red. the smell is simple and sweet and slightly sour smelling. the taste is stunning. passion fruit with a hint of chocolate are the flavors dominating. very sweet with an bit of an apple like aftertaste. goes down smooth, almost too smooth! the alcohol is not present at all, this beer is a great way to finish the night! Thanks, Bro!
