2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 10th January 2012
On tap in the Craft. Hazy reddish beer, good white head. Smooth silky palate. Very sweet malt with syrupy cherry and raspberry flavours. Minerals provide some relief. That’s about it. Found it a bit hard to get down. A like a sweet beer but this was a little cloying.

Draught from Swift’s. Poured a light reddish orange, cherries and other fruits, but a bit of alco as well. OK but sort of a weird hybrid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7 oz. bottle, PDT: 4/18/11- Pours a very hazy deep orange with a huge three finger off white almost reddish pink head. Aroma is nutty, mildly tart, cherries, creamy, strawberry shortcake. The taste is unsweetened cherries, almonds, tart, alcohol. Body is medium, carbonation is medium high, finish is tart and lingers. Good not too sweet fruit beer, massively complex, a winner for sure.
