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

I was immediately taken to the excellent perfume of cherries but not impressed by the mediocre appearance - little head, not much to look at period. The taste was nothing like i expected. it was chock full of cherries, but only slightly sweet and tart. Donít expect something like a lindemanís - itís much more beer-like. there were a ton of different flavors competing to be heard in this beer and I found each of them mouth-watering delicious. The palate was incredibly smooth and full and really completed this beer. Overall, I expect to keep this beer on hand as soon as I can find it reasonably priced by the case.

Sweet, tart cherries, but not overly so. It doesnt go overboard with a big dose of alcohol. Just the right amount of hops on the tongue to let you know your not drinking wine here. This is a very good fruit beer. Definitely a repurchase.

Poured cloudy red with slight head. Aroma was mild cherry. Flavor was a mild cherry, but with staying power. Flavor really developed half way through. Very good beer without the extreme tart and sweet flavors of some fruit beer.

It doesnít have a whole lot of smell. Floral, rose petal taste without being hoppy or bitter. The color of blush wine. Lightly sweet, lightly fruit, lightly tangy.

Cerise pours a brilliant rose color with a delicate white head. Small champagne like carbonation races from the bottom of the glass. The aroma is intoxicating, big ripe tart cherries complimented by a faint wisp of malt. Deceptively crisp and light, at 6.5% this bad boy will undoubtedly precipitate some interesting evenings. An initial blast of sweetness is rounded out by a rich enveloping tartness. Refreshingly sour, seductively sweet, this beer is a marvel. Free from the cloying sweetness and medicinal harshness that is too often indicative of this style, this fine fruit beer truly raises the bar.
