Bottle poured into a pint glass. This is a reddish amber color with a light and fizzy appearance. Smell is sweet and sugary with a malty backbone. Plum and grape are both present. Taste is both sweet and tart with noticeable plums and a sour finish. Excellent drinkability.

I go out of my way to try every new beer from Short's and this lives up to their standard.

A_Dark red/amber. Almost burgundy. Thin white head that subdues into a thin ring. No lacing.

S_Plums,dark fruits,rye malt and grassy hops.

T_Same as nose. The plum comes through sweet and a little tart. Balanced nicely by rye malt and a touch of earthy hops.

M_Full bodied with plenty of carbonation.

D_Easy to drink but wouldn't want to drink more than one in a sitting.
