Nose of faint cherry, sweet malt, hay, slight perfume floral note. Taste bland artificial watered down cherry juice, slight tartness, malts, graininess, light body. Blah!

Orange/slightly reddish in color.

Can definitely detect the tartness by the aroma.
Slightly salty like a gose, or maybe its just the sour profile.. i cant tell.

12oz brown bottle, sample from the brewery.

Thin white lace, clear golden rose hue. Smells of a cracker and mild cherry jam. Crisp and light bodied, a little bread with some cherry flavor and a mild tartness. A bit thin and weak about there is enough flavor to get by, just no depth. Refreshing though not noteworthy.

look; pale golden, short head disappears instantly, central eruption of big carbonation with a`few bubbles on the outside
smell; raspberry/cherry, a little wheat
taste, cherry, raspberry, honey, a hint of sour, sweet roll malt
feel; pretty good, medium carbonation
overall; it's not tart, it's a cherry light ale, disappointed about that but a`drinkable fruity light ale

A: Pours a reddish/pink hued copper color with a fingers worth of head that fairly quickly fades down to nothing

S: Cherries and pie crust malt up front, along with some general moderate sweetness. Lightly tart. A lot like cherry pie

T: Starts off with a bit of the tart cherry and maltiness then goes into a some of the sweetness and pie aspect. Finishes with some maltiness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A beer for those who want a fruity alcoholic beverage rather than a beer that tastes like beer. Good for those who like cherry pies and fruit beers. If you're not into either, then it's probably better to avoid this one
