This is a good beer, but the cough medicine flavor kinda lingers. Wish it had a little more sour

Interesting beer. Taste more like a Lambic than an Oud Bruin to me.

Pours dark red with a large head.
Aromas of cherry and marzipan. Smells like cherry wine.
Flavours include more cherry, marzipan and a very slight acidity. Pretty cloyingly sweet.

A - dark red, short lasting one finger head, spotty lace.
S - plums, molasses
T - cherries, plums, molasses, tart, hint vinegar, lots of malt
M - light, fizzy, warming from alcohol
O - well priced sour, easy drinking for a palate used to intense sours. Nice.

Poured from a 25.4oz bottle into a 16oz Belgian glass.

Appearance - 4/5
Very dark red-brown, with two fingers of brown-pink foamy head. Very hazy. When held up to bright light can see a bunch of carbonation rising up the beer.

Smell - 4.25/5
Dark-chocolate covered cherries. Very intense cherry smell, slightly alcoholic.

Taste - 3.75/5
Deep cherry, with hints of chocolate. Overall, the flavor is cherry, cherry and more cherry. It's not a bad taste, just not super complex.

Mouthfeel - 4/5
Medium body, smooth, slightly crisp.. Little to no bitterness. Medium level of light-intensity carbonation.

Overall - 3.75/5
If you love cherries, you will LOVE this beer. If you are a normal person and think cherries are decently tasty, you will like this beer, but perhaps get tired of it quick. It tastes like cherries, but not much else. A tasty beer, just not super complex, and one that I wouldn't want much more than one glass of.

Bottle poured into a Belgian style tulip glass

A: Dark red with a reddish head that dissipated fairly quick, some lacing, carbonation streaming off the bottom, ruby edges, looks great.

A: Big cherry aroma right up front, not picking up much else.

T: Big cherry flavors, mild tart, sour in the middle, not picking up any of the oak, very dry finish, slight alcohol on the finish.

M: Lots of carbonation, dry finish.

O: Not as impressed as with the aged Pale ale, this is still a good beer with lots of cherry, would like to get some more sour tart flavors and maybe some oak, but if you're looking for a cherry bomb, this is your beer. At 8.5% ABV the alcohol is well hidden.
