3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12.7 oz cork and caged bottle from Total Wine-McLean, 2/5/13
Aroma: The nose is extremely sweet, with lots of fruit on the nose: berries, cherries, etc
Appearance: It pours a hazed golden-orange color with a small froth of white head
Flavor: It tastes rather sweet, but it has enough of something to keep the sweetness a little in balance
Palate: The body is fairly light, it clean feel, soft-to-average carbonation, and is minimally cloying
I figured I’d drink this one "mid-afternoon," since that is the time it is most commonly enjoyed. Anyway, this is an interesting one. It is rather sweet and fruity, which is not something I always enjoy, but the fruitiness works pretty well here. Overall, a very solid fruit beer. Even though it is sweet, the sweetness isn’t too cloying. Nicely done. I could see drinking this one for breakfast.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle. Pours a clear straw with a white head. Medium to high carbonation. Nose is black cherry soda with licorice notes. Taste is not as sweet as the nose would indicate. Cherry, faint apple, and wheat. A medicinal finish not unlike watered-down cough syrup. Refreshing. Overall, it’s fine for a day at the beach and I wouldn’t turn it down if it was offered.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: extremely sweet cherry candy nose; unlike any beer I’ve had; Appearance: pale straw with thin white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: not nearly as sweet as aroma, but kind of like a hybrid between 7 Up and beer. Pretty refreshing. Palate: light bodied with medium cherry sweet finish; Overall: definitely different but would buy again for a hot summer day. Too bad it’s retired.
