Huge, overly sweet cherry aroma evokes cough syrup. Clear amber body is topped by a low tan head that recedes to a thin partial cover and slight ring. Sweet black cherry soda flavour with a slight wheat-like tartness notable in the finish. Medium body with fair carbonation. Could be crisper to offset the sweetness. Sampled on cask at Dix (Caskival 2007). Oakes (17654) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2007
Cherry red colour. The aroma is of rather candyish black cherry. Very cherry flavour, some oiliness on the palate. This actually lends it a hint of balance. Well, it’s candy - like Todd said almost cough syrupy, but OTOH it doesn’t have any of the typical Dockside off-notes so it’s going to rank as one of their better recent outings.

(Draught) Pours a red body with a thick, creamy pink foamy head. Nose is very sweet. DAMN --- this is too goddamn sweet, its like drinking a whole bottle of cherry cough syrup.
