3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a lightly hazed ruby red, with a brilliant white head. Aroma is cinnamon, cherry fruit, along with warming sugar sweet malt. Taste is the cherry up front, tannin cherry skin, and the warming cinnamon malt, and then thins out with a clean fruit finish (cherry plus some sweeter strawberry). As it warms, a touch of tartness enters the picture, though this was certainly not the main story. Palate is light bodied, along with soft natural carbonation, body thins way out in the finish. Interesting, though the fruit is a bit less assertive than I normally enjoy in this type of beer. Thanks for sharing this Eugene.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A brilliantly clear ruby red colored pour. Huge pink head that is quick to die down and leaves a little lacing behind. Big sour cherry aroma. A little malt and carbon. Dry, tart, sourness. Pretty good, but a bit too dry. Much like a medicinal cherry flavor. Otherwise a decent drinker.

Hazy red, pink head, massive lacing. Aroma of cherries, and that’s about it. Taste is fruit, black pepper. Bitter, metallic, acidic background. Interesting, but a bit odd.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent cherry nose, some cheese, light cotton candy. The taste is fairly dry, but a bit medicinal, very minerally. Not good, not terrible.
