Poured from a bottle into a Jacks Abby snifter. It's a murky red/brown, no real head but very bubbly. Bubbles clinging to the side and every so often some bubbles from the bottom pop at the top. Holding it up to the light, becomes way more red than brown.

Smell isn't overwhelming. Can smell a little tart cherry skin. Maybe a little but of oak. It's very mellow.

The taste is pretty mellow, as well. Not sour at all. Slight tartness right up front, with no lingering at the end. You get a very light cherry skin on the aftertaste. More of a sweet cherry. Not sure where the bourbon barrels are. They must be the reason for the cherry being tame. There's a bit of chocolate towards the end, as well.

Mouthfeel is somewhat thin, and not as carbonated as I would have thought from the appearance. There's a little fizz to start but disappears before I even knew it was there! This is an easy drinker, though. With no overhelmingly sourness or carbonation it's going down faster than I anticipated.

Overall, it's a decent beer. Feels pretty good on this hot day, and if I remember correctly it's a step above the regular Berliner Braun. I may not drive to Mass specifically for it, but if I see some while I'm in Mass, I'm absolutely buying a couple.
