a. Cherry red, two finger head that reduces but remains.

s. Cherry, cranberry, cough syrup.

t. Sometimes wonderful, sweet cherry beer - sometimes cough syrup, sometimes good tart cherry beer. Careful what you eat while enjoying this. Profile is all over the place.

m. Good.

o. Good beer that I would not pass over if offered up, but would not seek.

Agree with another review, this is in between a sweet fruit beer and a fruit-flavored beer. I am having it at a point I debated having a sour, and while this is not a sour, my palate was pleased with it.

Pours a deep red, with a fair amount of carbonation. The smell is rich cherry pie, including an oatmeal crisp (topping) smell.

The taste of chert is almost wine cooler-esque, but the feel it much drier. I do get fair carbonation for a beer, any more I think could tip it to a spritzer. I also get an interesting graham cracker-like taste underneath the cherry.

For what it is, I think this works, but you should be ready for a fruit beer, to be sure. I'd go for this again in a specific case.

This is an interesting fruit beer, but very different from a lambic or a syrupy flavored beer. The beer is a beautiful red and smells/tastes of cherry juice. The beer is sweet but not overly suite. The one down side is that the beer could use a little carbonation.
