Nice brick red color, smells of uncleaned tart cherries on the nose (a little earth in the aroma), the taste is a perfectly balanced tart cherry pie w/out any spices, and the feel is medium bodied with light carbonation. The best part is the finish which is a second burst of tart cherry. Great beer.

Thin white head. Slight fruit smell. Clear and copper colored. Tastes like cherries with a touch of beer. Then it tastes like cherries again. But not sweet. Like cherries you pick off of a tree for pie.

Sampled at SAVOR 2015. Tastes like cherry pie. Over the top sweet with a little tart. Smooth but not very good.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Pours a hazy orange-red with a foamy reddish-tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. No lacing on the drink down. Smell is of grain, cherry, cherry juice, and medicinal aromas. Taste is much the same with cherry, earth, chalk, and medicinal flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is drinkable, but the medicinal qualities I am getting aren't too pleasant.

Serving type: bottle.
