Pours dark red with a small pink head. Nose shows cherry, cough syrup, faint funky notes and very soft malt. A mix of acidic and sweet flavours are present upon tasting, with cherry throughout and some funky notes later on. The sour finish is perfectly refreshing. Nice moderately high carbonation suits the beer well.

A- dark cherry red with a half finger pink head.

S- sweet cherries, cherries, cherry juice.

T- cherry juice, slight alcohol, wheat, and mild yeast.

M- silky creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation, sweet and tart finish.

O- this is the first "beer" I've had where I felt like I wasn't drinking a beer. It reminds me of the cherry apple cider I drank as a kid around the holidays. This doesn't take away for how enjoyable it was. It is very drinkable and is very refreshing.
