Pours a dark cherry red with no head. Aroma is tart cherry, oak, and floral notes. Flavor profile is resounding notes of cherry, with floral and resin hops behind. Nice body and presence here. Mouth feel is smooth, and crisp, but is medium-thin. Overall, loads of cherry in this brew. It gives off a light aroma, but a strong flavor profile.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 750mL bottle.

Clear red color with foam that dissipated quickly. Good bit of cherry forward smell. Taste is still cherry and quite sweet. Not overly sour or acidic. More like cherry juice. Drier finish.

Raspberry colored ale with minimal head. Jammy berry aroma, very fresh. Raspberry and cherry flavor, of coarse. Somewhat overwhelmed with an earthy funk. Moderate acidity, mostly citric in character. Borderline medium body. Lively bubbles. Dry finish with a grainy texture. Solid. The seemingly excessive funk took away from the experience slightly.
