I received a six-pack as a gift. I drank one to be polite. I have been drinking craft beer for over two decades and this is the first beer I have poured down the drain. It's disgustingly sweet and the base wheat beer is substandard as well.

Pours a hazy amber red body. The only thing i'm going to enjoy about this review because i've had this before and i'm pretty sure this particular bottle isn't going to change my mind. Anyway, hazy amber red body which I actually, with a white fizzy head that soon fizzles away to thin lace.

Smells like robatusin or some kind of artaficial cherry extract.

Taste's worste than it smells. I can't taste anything other than carbonated cherry flavored cough syrup. Pretty rough.

Mouthfeel sucks. Just like being forced to take some cough syrup, you scramble for a cup of water to wash your mouth out. I hate this beer. I don't throw around the work hate too often but I hate this beer. Don't ever drink this.

I didn't realize they were doing a collaborations with robitussin. Could not finish it. Gave it to a guy I didn't like.
