On tap at bier thirty. Pours out a reddish copper with a ring of head. Nose is barrel fruit not much cherries and some bread malt. Always wanting more fruit on the brainless stuff. Taste is a little tart and some sweetness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (Batch 22) - Pours pinkish amber with a thin off-white head. Nose is grainy, a little yeasty and not much fruit. A hint of SweetTart. Taste is grainy, with dusty yeast and really no cherries. Watery and thinnish. A huge disappointment as I really like cherry beers.

22 oz bottle. Pours a clear light reddish amber color with a small fizzy pink head. The aroma and flavor have a big cherry juice note, sweet, mild red wine character, tannins and some wood.Much like batch 1-4, it came off more like a juice than it did beer. No sign of the abv.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very nice ruby red amber color. Cherry aroma. Sips almost sour lambic like, very fruity. But nicely dry and balanced with the wine barrel flavor, which is very pronounced. Low carbonation liveliness. Alcohol is hardly noticeable.

Not sure if this one works. The various flavor components are individually superb, but they fight each other. A bit too much dissonance.

Nice reddish color, some flavor from the wine barrels adding and nice cherry taste without being over powering.

Draft at Uno. Pours copper with no head at all. Aroma is cherry, grass. Taste is tart cherry, a nice red wine (meaty, dark fruits). I’m missing the "ale" part here to be honest but the overall experience is not a bad one.
