Pours a clear dark red with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is very cherry forward with cherry cola, cherry syrup, and dark cherry aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and medicinal cherry flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of spice bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a nice cherry smell but the flavors are just a bit too much like cough medicine in my opinion.

Smells a lot like cherries. A lot. Ever had Juicy Juice cherry juice?? Like that. Cherry syrup.

Pours a feel dark ruby red with really no head that I can speak of.

Taste starts out initially quite sweet and is met with a good tart cherry note with some dryness, as if it has been aged (which it is). I won't say that it is extremely complex or even that interesting but it's pretty drinkable. Seems to draw a line between a sweet fruit beer and the beginnings of a Flanders red sour. More on the sweet, probably.

on draught at the yard house in west nyack, ny. Has a great, deep red color with no real head. From the glass, smells like cherry syrup. No real tart at all, very sweet with a sticky feel left on the roof of my mouth. Would pair well with the right foods, buttoo sweet for a pint
