Fruity cherry flavor. Much better then I expected. Delicious! It is a pinkish cherry red color. It has a fresh, sweet, and crisp flavor.

Bottle. The our is a bright hazy reddish pink. The aroma bursts sweet with cherry. The taste is very light, and less cherry than the smell indicated. If you are into fruit beers, this is not a bad one. Personally I prefer to mix this with breakfast stout, which is a really solid brew.

March 31, 2013 - bottle from brewery. Dark reddish pour with limited head. Malty, grainy and tart cherry in aroma. Taste starts sweet and then becomes tart. The finish seemed a bit metallic. Light to medium bodied and some carbonation. Bottled 6/6/12.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Heavy on the cherry and not much else going on.

Pours dark red color with a pink head. Aroma of juice, fruits, some berries and sugar. Flavor of sugary fruits, juice, berries and some grass. Quite disturbing taste and weird altogether.

Ehhh, wishing for a Belgium Red (New Glarus) but this was a huge miss for me. Mainly tasted like watery cherry juice. Mostly like sugary maraschino not really cherries... Sad.

A rosey colored ale with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sugary cherry, and the body is poppy. The problem is that is not really balanced, it needs a bit more body to mellow the sweetness or bump up the tartness.

Pours a dark orange red with a foamy oat colored head. Aromas of light cherries, hay, slight and grass. Flavors of wow, real cherries, real cherry sugars, and hay/grassy. Slightly tart, medium sweet, quick finish, almost no aftertaste. Liked how nothing tasted artificial like only real cherrys were used! How a fruit beer should be, by using real ingredients!
