3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale pink-orange pour with a thick white head. The aroma is lightly spicy and a wheaty. A touch of soft tartness and a little bit of cherry fruitiness. Light pepper and a touch of soft fruitiness. There is a little bit of stone fruit apricot and clove character. There’s also a touch of soft spiciness on the finish. There’s a little bit of light wheatiness on the finish. Dry fruity finish. It’s got a great combination of cherry fruitiness and yeasty spice. I like it.

Draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy orange-pink color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of cherries, citrus, wheat. The taste is cherries, citrus, wheat and unfortunately the cherries take on a medicinal quality. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-09-01. Hazy red amber body with a nice foamy white head. 3++ Smooth average plus body is effervescent. 3+ Flavour is sweetly fruity cherry with tart cherry notes. Aroma is similar, simple sweet fruity cherry with light tart accents. Enjoyable. The fruit dominates over the subtle base beer but it is rather nice. Bottle from the LCBO shared by a friend.

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a hazed ruby grapefruit color with a medium sized white head. Big sweet cherry on the nose, a hint of cough drops. Medium-bodied, soft grain and wheat, a bit of sweetness. Some candy notes and some cherry notes and almost a hint medicinal. Empty in places.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Very hazy orange colour, with a pinkish-tinged effervescent head. Perfumey, powdery cherry character compliments light yeat and even lighter malts. The finish is surprisingly bitter, adding a welcome dryness. Light and refreshing, more floral than sweet. I liked it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Chappy’s Tap Room. Pours a cloudy orange-gold with a small, barely off-white head. The aroma hints at a big dose of cherry, balanced by some pale and bready malts. The flavor does bring a big dose of cherry, but in the form of candy and cough drops. A bit artificial-seeming. Light-bodied, with a surprisingly dry mouthfeel - very dry - and modest carbonation. Not the best work by these guys.
