This poured out as a brownish red color with a white head on top. The soapy looking head fades and leaves a ring of foam around the edge. The smell of the beer is tart on the nose some really nice cherry aromas. The taste of the beer is tart and sour. There is some sweetness in tere as well that is a little on the syrupy side. The mouthfeel of the beer is nicely carbonated with a medium body to it. Overall this beer is pretty good. I feel it could be a little more sour. It's still a pretty good brew.
