750mL bottle purchased at Bierkoning on my Amsterdam trip in October, 2011 and shared at a KC gathering. 2008 bottle consumer in 2011. Pours with a thick head that fades quickly. Color is thick dark red. Aroma shows signs of age but cherry dominates. There is sweet yet natural cherry aroma with a natural musky element. As someone at the gathering stated, its like cherry pie. Flavor sweet pie with tart cherry at the back of the flavor. No age in the flavor. Mouthfeel is light and tangy. The beer is a nice fruit-beer beer akin to New Glarus but a but more natural with the musk. Pricey but fun if you want a non-artificial cherry beer.

theisti (3851) - Kansas, USA - DEC 5, 2011
750 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Pour is a lightly hazed ruby red, with a brilliant white head. Aroma is cinnamon, cherry fruit, along with warming sugar sweet malt. Taste is the cherry up front, tannin cherry skin, and the warming cinnamon malt, and then thins out with a clean fruit finish (cherry plus some sweeter strawberry). As it warms, a touch of tartness enters the picture, though this was certainly not the main story. Palate is light bodied, along with soft natural carbonation, body thins way out in the finish. Interesting, though the fruit is a bit less assertive than I normally enjoy in this type of beer. Thanks for sharing this Eugene.

suprchunk (2949) - Crestview, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2011
A brilliantly clear ruby red colored pour. Huge pink head that is quick to die down and leaves a little lacing behind. Big sour cherry aroma. A little malt and carbon. Dry, tart, sourness. Pretty good, but a bit too dry. Much like a medicinal cherry flavor. Otherwise a decent drinker.

750mL courtesy of Travlr. Pours a clear pink with a large, fizzy, pinke head that has very good retention and lace. Aroma is cherry pie, baked cherries, burnt currant. Taste is spritzy raspberry seltzer water, lots of mineral water, missing the body. No sourness or kriek notes.
