look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - Poured a reddish hued champagne color. Thin head. Slightly hazy.

Smell - Sweet, Fruity, definite strong notes of cranberry.

Taste - Sweet and apple up front. cherries and tartness at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Lightly juicy, wet but not heavy. Fine carbonation throughout and some creaminess.

Overall - I could drink a few of these. I can imagine really enjoying this in nice weather.

Now it did say this was a cream ale on the six pack holder but not on the bottle.

Poured into a perfect pint. Pours a pinkish-amber hazy color. With an insane white heading on it. The foam raised well above the rim and held. Left soapy lacing all throuhgout the tasting.

Smell is very subtle in cherry notes and fruitiness.Slight earthiness to it as well.

Taste is very cherry sweet with an almost soda-like taste. Alot smoother than first anticipated. Does leave a linger of cherry in the aftertaste as well as some nuttiness.

Mouth is way overcarbonated but is still very smooth not watery like most overcarbonated beers. A light to medium type beverage.

A bit too much bubbliness for my liking but not too bad. I guess it's kind of geared towards the champagne folk. Not bad but not great.
