hotstuff (4391) - Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Draft at BadaBoomz in downtown Indianapolis, IN. Small pinkish head, no lacing and a burgunday-dark red hue. Nose was sweet, full of cherries, sour, and tart. Flavor was very sweet, a lot of cherries, sour, and tart. Tingly mouthfeel and medium in body. Quite true to style, but way too sweet and fruity tasting for my liking. Those who enjoy this beer style, will probably enjoy way more than I did.

750 ml green corked and caged bottle poured a clear garnet with a lasting pink head. Aromas of sour pie cherries, light vanilla and a hint of spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of sour pie cherries, pie crust and hints of vanilla and spice with a crisp lingering cherry finish.

rasears (4) - CANADA - MAR 7, 2008 does not count
Dark red, nearly opaque with little head. Relatively sweet, not too tart, and not funky. Some alcohol, and a little astringent. Cough syrup-like, but in the best possible way.

Dark maroon body with a small pinkish head. Sweet cherry Sucret-like nose with some cotton candy. The flavor is moderately sweet, moderately tart with cherry cough syrup, caramel and a hint of metals. Medium body is sticky with moderate carbonation.

on tap. pours a ruby red with a nice 11/2 finger fluffy red pinkish head. aroma is dark cherries with skins and some Belgian yeast with some chocolate. has a medium body with good lacing and carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma but more of the Belgian yeast shows thru and is stronger than the aroma. i donít know about mixing a brown ale with cherries and Belgian yeast but not to bad.

A tasting at Three Cellars Milwuakee. Deep Red. Very Cherry and very crisp. Not overly sweet. This is a great holiday beer. Maybe the best Fruit beer I have had.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2009 Definitely darker than I expected. Still red, but dark, blood red with pink head. Head didnít hang around very long. Was hoping for a more sour beer, but the beer tasted just like Ludemanís cough drops, which is actually really not a bad thing. I think itís achieved what itís going for, but not loving it. Liking it quite a bit, though. Surprised to realize that itís 8%; doesnít taste like it.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Pours a super dark amber with a bright pink foamy head. Aroma is all cherries. Flavor is the same, but nicely tart and crisp. A great example of the variety.

750, corked, baled, and foiled. Pours opaque, nearly black, with the faintest of dark amber highlights in the very corners. Thick, foamy medium-pink head that falls quickly away, leaving virtually no head and just a little lace. Huge sweet cherry nose. Not much else in there, and itís a very sharp, sugary, juice-concentrate-like fragrance. Not that it smells synthetic at all, just that itís so intense. Medium body, some tiny carb to provide a bit of tingle but nothing to write home about. Mid-palate has a nice blend of the sweet and the sour from the cherry world. Tastes a bit like a cherry pop, the fruity sweetness is so dominant and pronounced. This is a really yummy beer but, I must confess, the first one Iíve thought would be best served for mixing with other, darker stuff.
