|Check out that pink head, eh!?|
Appearance: This weird ass beer poured redder than the devil's dick(!), with a light pink head that was frothy as hell and stuck around to taunt me.
Aroma: Strange brew. The smell reminds me of the taste of this pistachio ice cream I once had that was primarily vanilla and had no mention of cherries anywhere on the label, yet tasted just like cherries. After the beer warmed I got an alcoholic strawberry-banana smoothie type deal.
Taste: Malts and hops with some dried no-sugar-added cherries. Wheat. Hints of sweet creamed corn. Overall it's sweet but not too sweet, bitter but not too bitter. The sweet and bitter seem to be battling it out here. The bitterness is coming out on top, but not by much... it's still pretty damn sweet.
Mouth-Feel: Little foamy with a smooth yet tingly flow.
Finish and Overall: Aftertaste is like a cherry cough syrup. It's a gimmicky beer, but I like it. The color really impressed me and frightened me at the same time. But it had a certain taste that I was looking for at the moment, not funky at all, nor too fruity. It may look weird and act weird, but it's decent enough and kinda cool looking. I just hope it's not poisonous. Or do I? Muahaha...
