3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft… RBSG 2010… Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a bit subdued, but the presence of cherry and spicy grains along with an undertone of warm mash and a trace of lactic acid is finally pulled from my glass. Medium to full-bodied with lively carbonation. Bittersweet, malty flavor with just a smidge of cherry. Finishes soothingly bitter.

Aroma of cherries, cocktail fruit salad (that nasty shit) and faint wheat notes. The taste is bread, cherries, caramel and a bitter hoppy finish. Medium bodied.

On tap. Poured a cloudy orange with a medium near white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had some tart and sweet cherries with a sweet wheat. Flavor was similar with sweet cherries and wheat in the beginning with a slight growing tart cherry undertone.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. As others are noting, this had an explosive head - I poured 4/5 into a 12oz bulb glass and over half of it was head, I might have done a sloppy pour but it spilled all over my counter. Slightly hazy orange color. Soft, somewhat thick carbonation. Cherry aroma is there, but a bit too much apple aroma as well for my tastes. I might just not enjoy cherry in beverage form. Interesting, but I wasn’t a fan of this beer that trolls you with excessive head.
