A. A light red beer with a thin pink head that quickly disappears with minimal retention and very little lacing. It has very high carbonation.
S. The nose is very strong in cherries and has hints of hops and grains.
T. The taste reminds me of cherry flavored pop. Even though the menu says it is brewed with real cherries the taste reminds me of flavored cherry syrup that is in pops with a slight hops taste in the back to remind you that it is beer your drinking. The cherry flavor says a long time and the after taste is sweet cherries.
M. the mouthfeel is very nice and crisp. A very easy drinking beer.
O. This beer overall is one that I would recommend trying as an after dinner beer and one should be plenty since it is very sweet and more than one can be a bit too much
