4/26/2010: Argh! Southern Tier you were on a roll, I thought you were the kings of dark beer. Then you give me this crap. I guess realistically this is a beer a lot of girls might like (simply because most girls will try any beer with a sweet fruit in it), and probably sells well to people who aren’t really into craft beer so, I can’t be a hater.

This sounds like pop (yes its pop) when you pour it out, super fizzy. The first taste is almost like a raspberry candy, very artificial tasting. A little bit of chocolate flavor is the only thing that saves this beer at all. Very carbonated and fizzy. To me you should never be able to see THAT much light pass through a porter (look above at picture), and yes it is a bit watery tasting too. Why can’t someone make a GOOD cherry/raspberry porter? Does anyone know of one? Because I have yet to drink one.

Picture of the day: If I had a kid I would for sure get him this shirt.
