AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
S – obviously, lots of cherry on the nose. There’s a sweetness that reminds me of a candied apple. I get lots of bourbon on the nose..very obviously there.
T – A very sweet beer, total candied cherries taste. Bourbon finish. Vanilla, coconut and oak obviously. Then there’s the floral hibiscus sweetness and honeysuckle sort of things going on. It’s insanely complex and very much a sweet and less boozy version of a classic manhattan.
M – Big, bubbly and bright
O – Not my favorite cascade beer but an A for complexity!
