Very sweet. Dark red color; very strong cherry flavor. Tart after taste. A very nice dessert beer

Bottled at the Lake Country Beer and Music Festival. Poured medium red with just a little dusty lacing on top. The aroma picked up sweet and tart cherries (mostly sweet) with moderate dusty notes.. not overly complex or with a typical lambic intensity, but I rather enjoyed it. The flavor was similar with some cherry pits and dusty notes that were a bit too clean for the intention (needed more funk).. dry finish with cherry skins and light sweetness. Medium-bodied and lightly sour on the palate with a decent flow.. could have used more sourness and funk, but it was certainly solid.

Looks like a smoothie. Very appealing visually. I got the cherry part of it but, the lambic style was not a pronounced as I expected.

Pours a ruby red color. The aroma was sweet much like a wine. The flavor was comparible to the New Glaris Belgian Red but this was a little sweeter, and lacked the body. All around a very good beer.

Cherry red with a quickly fading pink head. Aroma of mild cherries and light sweet malts. Taste is somewhat bland and not overly tasting of cherries. The body is mostly tart without much sweetness to back it up. So-so.

On tap at Millers Pub, sparkling ruby red color, barreled cherry wine aroma,like your about to indulge in a glass of Mogan David Cherry,but softer,not the in your face alcohol,Brett yeast is supposed to be in here ,but really not noticeable, upon tasting ,im still thinking a smooth cherry wine,with hints of barrel kisses,the smoothness of the body reinforces that impression,but the carbonation and some slight wheat tastes reminds you this is a beer in your hand, the slight but pleasant sourness comes to the front and starts dominating the palate,slightly dry asringent taste finishes it off,initially slightly sweeter and less sour then Rodenbach , a Miller product any of your snooty wine friends would enjoy

Dark copper color with ruby hi-lights when held to the light. Head is average with a pink/beige hue. Aromas of cheery jam, or perhaps a cherry pie, with a light golden crust. Light and bright in feel. Light cherries and pale malt hinge with a slightly acidic quality. Mild and somewhat restrained, which is understandable. Actually better than many of the overly sweet krieks out there. A solid effort.

10th Annual Mid*Winter Brewfest. Pours to a filtered deep red body with a foamy light pink/off-white head. The flavor is cherries but also apparent pale malts. Lightly tart on the palate. Kind of has a light grain dust feel to it. Cherry pits in the aroma. A decent attempt but needs to have many more brewing recipes/attempts/brewer experience.
