Cherry always makes me think of cough syrup, but this one slips by as very palatable. Bubbly, fresh, slightly woodsy. Easy to drink.

Not terrible, but a little cough-syrupy.
Mouth feel a little watery and soda-y, which is probably the biggest turn off.
I'm not crazy about this one, although I like the idea of a cherry beer. Just don't like the way this one executed.
Never poured it. Wonder if I'd like the color. (Picked a random rating, as the site wouldn't let me skip it.

This used to be my wife's go-to beer. I feel like there are just some flavors that should not be paired with beers. Cherry is on that list. Cough syrup, maybe. Too sweet.

I generally don't like flavored beers, but this one I can get into. Don't know why. I love drinking it on draft at J. Timothy's in Planville, CT, while I beast piles of buffalo wings....tremendous combination.
