Cherries at the forefront, a cross between a kriek and a sour. Pours out a deep ruby brown with minimal tightly beaded head. Aroma of cough medicine, taste a bit smoother with some elements of chocolate. Cherry tootsie pop, as mentioned by an earlier rater. Pure sour finish.

Nice cherry flavor and aroma which is not overpowering. Mostly sweet character with a mild tartness. Robitussin-like flavor in the finish is slightly off set. Harsh carbonation when first opened. I recorked the bottle and drank the rest the next day and the carbonation was perfect.

Appearance: Beautiful deep ruby color. A pink head with foamy form with tiny bubbles. Very good retention, thick slices of lacing. Beautiful to look at.

Nose: Raspberry lambic, cherry fruit.

Taste: Raspberry cranberry mix perfectly with the mildly syrupy texture and sweetness. Cherry in the middle which opens to nice carbonation and a faint lingering mouthfeel.

The cherries were a bit over powering for me.
