Poured from the tap at Stagione's in Shanghai China, A welcome surprise. Poured into a 500mL imperial pint.

A: Pure deep red color, perfectly clear. Head is offwhite, foamy, and has ok retention.

S: Cherry candy. Overwhelmingly sweet like smelling a candy apple.

T: Not as strong as the smell suggests. Good cherry pie profile. Very sweet but with some more balancing malt. Tart and sugary. Just OK.

Overall: Not as subtle as many other fruit beers/lambics. This is very in your face as a fruit beer. No typical beer characteristics aside from a side malt note. OK but probably won't want again.
