look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Cherry red and filtered on first pour, tons of fine bubbled carbonation and a 4 finger head of raspberry latte or beige with a pinkish tinge.

S: Cherries off the bat, some sour acidic qualities, sour cherry Jolly Ranchers candies. Some dark brown malty qualities.

T: Sweet and cherries, a sort of aspartame bitterness. A burn of alcohol in the throat.

M: Medium thick and syrupy with medium low carbonation. A sort of tart and sweet coating stays on the tongue.

O: Certainly not the best example of this style, it should be known that it is full of cherry in the smell and taste. Goudenband, La Folie, and Monk’s Café’s versions for example are neither cherry nor sweet forward as this is. Still its nice to try the style, and it makes me realize the boundaries of the style extends further than I’d realized. Bought at Bruisin Ales in Asheville.
