The color is a crystal clear ruby/burnt orange. I believe the head was off-white, but to be honest, it didn't last long enough for me to get a real good look. Smells sweet and boozy. Cherries are predominant, but a bit complex in that maraschino cherries are discernable as well as dried black cherries. Banana, vanilla, and alcohol round things out. Taste is very reflective of the aroma, although the vanilla note seems replaced by a touch of bitter chocolate and honey. Otherwise cherries are dominant. Alcohol is far more present in the nose than on the palate. The finish is somewhat reminiscent of a cherry cough syrup, but finishes much cleaner than one would suspect. Feel is slightly viscous and resiny. Incredibly easy to drink.
