Began promising. Taste is okay, but it has very sweet finish, a bit too sweet for my liking, but not horrible.

Growler @ SF. Light brown with little head. Smells like grape bubble gum. Not too sweet, a little boozy, has a cider quality.

Sampled at Slutfest 3. Hazy reddish pour with ring of tan head. Very syrupy sweet. Sugary nose, and fake sugary flavor. Fake cherry cough syrup. Not horrible, but much too sweet for my taste.
