Sampled at a recent tasting. Not quite sure what batch this was but it was pretty good none the less. Not a ton of cherries in the aroma/flavor but very solid regardless.

tap. Amber red with minimal head. Light cherry tartness. Mild flavor, but whatís there is very nice. No booze at all in the palate, but there is a bit of warmth.

Bottle (release #19)
Aroma: Vanilla, fruit juice, tart
Appearance: Reddish/brown with no head
Taste: Vanilla, woody notes, semi-sweet fruit
Palate: Medium mouthfeel, lively mouthfeel
Overall: Cherries are nicely integrated and fairly subtle, and the oaky vanilla flavors serve as a very nice finish.

Thanks Dakine. Batch #7. Reddish pour with a red-tinged head. Aroma was cherries and oak. The head went away so quick. Taste was very bubbly, cherries, dry oaky aftertaste. -ehh.

Pours a clear golden with nearly no head. Sweet apple cider and raisins on the nose. Mildly spicy flavors approximate the aromas. Wet, smooth, heavier mouthfeel.

This curiously red colored beer has a sweet aroma of fruit. It has a strong taste if wine much like a sparkling wine made from red grapes. Very unique and good.

This beer has a pink amber appearance. The aroma has cherry, yeast, and some apple. The taste is somewhat dry, and a bit sour. The palate is invigorating. Itís quite good. I recommend this if you want a fruit beer without much sweetness.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown color with effectively no head on it. Nose has some dark fruit elements (i.e., cherries), and just a little bit of feet in there. Taste smacks of cherry (which I hate, which is why Iím making my wife drink most of this), and I canít get beyond that. Really donít like that, but itís because of the fruit.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
an older bottle. Lower carbonation. Aroma of sour cherry, red wine. Sweet, but in no way cloying or syrupy. Sour cherry, with traces of red wine and oak. Nicely integrated. Still a very slight bit of alcohol detected but not enough to burn. Grab a couple bottles and let them age.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Batch 14. Looks like cherry juice, even and fire engine red, almost no fizz or head. Not really much of an aroma, but drinks like cherry candied liqueur, with just a slight alcohol burn, and quite well balanced. Very nice overall. (#5166, 7/7/2013)
