Pours ruby-tinged gold into a shaker. White soapy head hugs rim. Fruity berry and apple aromas. Sharp with summer fruit and apple front to back. Sweetness becomes a bit cloying as it warms.

When I asked what this tasted like I was told a bit like champagne. Although I can see that, it didn’t have that after taste that champagne does. It was smooth and very good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled on tap at Black Bottle Brewery. Clear pale pink appearance with a bubbly white ring of head. Fruity, berry aroma with notes of strawberry, raspberry, watermelon, vanilla, apple and pear. Similar flavor, adding a moderate fruity sweetness and a light tartness. Light body with high carbonation and a lingering sweet finish. Easy to drink and almost refreshing, just a little too sweet overall.

There is a cute, rosy pour on this release (a small % goes to breast cancer research). The light, floral, fruity aroma is a nice surprise. It tastes like a mild cider fortified with a little strawberry Jolly Rancher flavor. It is not bad for this type of thing - but this type of thing usually isn’t my thing.
