Huge, overly sweet cherry aroma evokes cough syrup. Clear amber body is topped by a low tan head that recedes to a thin partial cover and slight ring. Sweet black cherry soda flavour with a slight wheat-like tartness notable in the finish. Medium body with fair carbonation. Could be crisper to offset the sweetness. Sampled on cask at Dix (Caskival 2007).

Cherry red colour. The aroma is of rather candyish black cherry. Very cherry flavour, some oiliness on the palate. This actually lends it a hint of balance. Well, itís candy - like Todd said almost cough syrupy, but OTOH it doesnít have any of the typical Dockside off-notes so itís going to rank as one of their better recent outings.

(Draught) Pours a red body with a thick, creamy pink foamy head. Nose is very sweet. DAMN --- this is too goddamn sweet, its like drinking a whole bottle of cherry cough syrup.
