3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from a Liquor store in Glen Rock. Appearance: Pours clear, pinkish gold with some orange. Aroma is honey with a hint of sourness. Taste of honey, sour cherry, faint apple. While it starts sweet, when allowed to sit on the tongue, it is more sour. More apple in the finish than in the beginning with light taste of alcohol. Sweet but there is enough sour cherry to make it non-cloying. Quite drinkable and quite refreshing as they noted. IF the aroma was as complex as the taste, I’d probably give it around a 4.1/4.2. Nice though

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of frothy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were very quickly diminishing and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a oily lacing. The mild aroma was honey. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of honey and cherry. An OK brew just nothing special.

Pink in color like a cherry 7UP, mild carbonation but not overly annoying. Touches the tongue very sweet and finishes dry - A nice combination. I didn’t really notice the honey, but the cherry was there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught@CBC2015. Pretty much looking like a roséwine. Aroma is sour cherries, some sweet honey, mild nectary notes as well as some sour apple as well. Flavour is slight sweetish sour notes, where the cherries, honey, mild spiciness as well as apples mix together rather nicely. In a way refreshing, although the honeyish floral notes tend to be a bit sweet.
