Deep ruby red pour with a dark pink one-finger head. Strong aroma of fermented cherries. Great dark cherry flavor upfront with a slightly tart edge. Light to medium bodied with a decent amount of carbonation. Can also taste a hint raspberry and a little oak flavor but the cherry really stands out. Finish with a really nice lingering dark cherry tartness.

A - pinkish red, red foam, clear, head dies down fairly quickly

S - Cherries. Smells heavy of what it tastes like when you crush a cherry stone/peach stone in your moth - kinda like almonds or marzipan - fairly sweet.

T - Even more cherries in the taste, sweet, don't get any malt or hops - not much funk or other yeast driven flavors either. Finish is more tart, but still fairly sweet.

M - lightbodied which fits, medium high carbonation. very clean.

O - Pretty clean version of the style - a bit boring and one dimensional. Also I think it's too sweet. More like cherrysoda then a beer.

Pours crimson with good clarity and a seductive pink undertone. The head is loose cherry tinted foam that fell fast. The nose is ripe black cherries. A hint of woody oak and a brief whiff of barnyard. Taste is sweet and ripe fruit that has a modicum of tartness on it in and of itself. The barnyard is not very prominent on the palate. The wood is airy and light. The carbonation is almost right but could stand a few more bubbles. The malt is a but a touch of crisp wheat and a hint of weight on the palate. The beer is dry. What it isn't - is sour or acidic. It lacks that boldness and it is sorely missed. While the fruit is lovely it just does not engage the palate fully without that aspect. It drinks easily and a bit too easily .
