This was an amazing beer! The nose had a spice perhaps cardamom along with bright fruit like cherries and cranberry. It was not very sweet and not too tart. Perfect for a summer afternoon. This goes great with fish, or fowl.

Wow. Just wow. Pours a bubbly pinkish red. Cherries on the nose, just a pleasure on the olfactory senses. Tastes like a sour cherry pie with hints of cinnamon. Carbonation also adds to the overall experience, just enhancing the flavor profile by added a little fizz, with the flavor bursting on the palate. Loved this beer, even more so that I have another bottle to enjoy with the wife, as she also loved it.
