4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours red with a tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma is strong apple and cherry. Taste is tart and fruity but with a significant amount of sweetness, a little much for my taste. It has a medium body with and is a bit fizzy. Overall this is a great beer, wouldn’t mind if it was a bit drier but if I had the opportunity in Chicago to purchase more of this I definitely would be.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a friend. Pours a deep ruby red with off white two finger head. Huge bouquet of cranberry and cherry, sweet and tart smelling. Flavor is more cherry heavy with hints of the cranberry coming through. Very sweet, slight tart. More medicinal than I had hoped but not overwhelming. Lingering tart cranberry that grows on me while I go. Light to medium mouthfeel with lots of carbonation. Cool beer, but not as good as Raspberry Tart.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
750mL Bottle, purchased at Keyport Liquors - Superior, WI> Cough syrup cherry aroma, cooked and candied. Flavors roam around sweet tart territory, with more medicinal cherry flavors, and some strange bitter astringency from the cranberries. Sweet, sweet, sweet. This is rough, lightly alcoholic candy. It’s so sweet that the rim of my glass is getting sticky after a dozen sips.

1 of 2 bottles purchased at random WI gas station during Dells spring break trip. Holy crap was this good. Great fruit flavor with just enough tart sourness to make it great. The sourness and barrel treatment did not overpower the fruit. Awesome.
