There is a fine line between cherry cough syrup and sweet cherry (as opposed to sour cherry) flavor in beer. To me this barely came down on the non-medicinal side of things. I enjoyed it. My wife hated it. Won't be buying again.

Love this one, especially when the weather turns and gets cold. Perfect beer to sip at parties. Surprisingly tasty for a beer that isn't very thick. Love the cherry flavor!
