Poured a red-auburn. Not quite ruby red because it had a slightly more brown tinge to it. Not much head, but a nice thin layer of bubbles constantly throughout.
Aroma was medicinal cherry. Smelt extremely sweet.
Mouthfeel was light and crisp. Well-rounded, but not awe-inspiring.
Now--the flavour is fantastic. Sour cherries with good sweet kick off the bat, finishes with bubblegum that eases away. The finish is subdued enough to allow the start room. Aftertaste is well-sweetened tart that remains for some time.
A wonderful drink to discover--I think one would enjoy this with a nice dessert and then relax, possibly by drinking something totally different. Not a session by any means (my God, imagine doing that, you'd have to remove your tongue by the end) but something to always have in the fridge.
