3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Bright reddish pour with slight pink hue. Aroma has sweet cherry pie notes and some slight tootsie roll. Flavor is cherry heavy, 90% sweet and 10% tart. Slight tanginess to it. One-note of cherry, but it’s interesting and enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A reddish copper ale with a thin pinkish head. In aroma, sweet cherry puree with grassy hops and rather Belgian character. This comes out more in mouth wiith candy sugar and cherry, coriander, not bad.
