look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle to a Dogfish Head Snifter.

Color: Amber with an off white head.

Smell: Cherries, hops, malts and honey.

Taste: Cherries, hops, malts, honey, slight alcohol presence.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation, smooth and slighlty dry.

Overall: Very well balanced! Couldn't tell it is 11% ABV. As it warmed up the alcohol was present but still very tastey. A great winter brew. Cheers!

Love those cherries!

By no means does this brew have any sour components. However, I get bowled over by smooth sweet cherries. Oh sweet sweet cherries. Super smooth.

Slightly hot. Only tiny bitterness at the end. The smell is fruity and floral. Pours a bronze clear orange amber.

Nice beer.
