4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Courtesy of BOLTZ7555. It pours clear copper with ruby red hues at the core and some nice legginess along the inside of the glass. The aroma is sugar sweet, marshmallow and berry to cherry like notes. The taste is rich sweet goodness with very little of the ABV showing. I get smooth sweet somewhat slick sweetness and honey unfolding to reveal fairy rich near nectar like berry notes. Great stuff.

Bottle… Berliner Bash on the Bay 2012… This beer rocks!… Pours clear and blood-orang in color. Excellent vanilla, cream and cherry bouquet. Medium to full-bodied and milky.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rosy pink body lacking even a single bubble. Sweet maraschino cherry aroma with delicate honey and a bit of lactose in the nose. Flavor is a bit less impressive but still has the before-mentioned qualities. Reminiscent of a cherry creamsicle. Good.
