2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
BBF 08 NOTF. Good bright reddish with a nice fizzy head. Aroma is phenolic sweet cherry skins, almond and cherry pit, wierd off notes and not much anticipated acidity. Flavor is watered down, artificial cherry juice-like, weak mouthfeel and very low acidity- ugh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap sampled on 09/26/08 at Night of the Funk. Pours a dark red with a light pink head. Aroma of odd cherry notes. Flavor is only slightly cherry with also a slight tartness. The palate is quite weak and watery. What a bland beer. Cherry wheat is much better!!
