On draft during Philly Beer Week, at Via Marconi's Pizza Pub, Hatfield, PA.
Poured into a chalice.

A- Amber brown in color, some ruby highlights. Light tan head, doesn't retain much.

S- A little boozy in smell. Cherry coke and whiskey. Tangy fruit.

T- Tart cherry, a bit of oak, still this faint hint of cola. Lots of tang!

M- Lip-smacking tartness. Rather light in body, so this will hit hard and fast. Semi-dry finish.

O- Really great. So tangy, lots of great flavors.
