Stubby bottle pours a clear ruby body with a small and fleeting pink head. Aroma is sweet and tart cherries. Taste follows suit with more sweet and tart cherries. Just a hint of malt and hops underneath but no hint of the 8% abv. This one is all about the cherries, not much else.

Bottle sampled. Pours a deep red with a nice one finger pink head. Aroma of sweet and tart cherries. Flavor is moderatly sweet with cherries and has a light tartness that is interesting and pleasant. Alcohol well hidden. An excellent fruit beer

tomer (1697) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 5, 2007
Draught. opaque, dark red purple colour. aroma dominated by ripe sour cherries. The taste continues the strong cherry present with just a touch of alcohol, full and rich body, long sweet and sour finish. The cherry presence makes this beer seem a bit one dimensional, but this probably a classic case of the final impression being more the sum of the parts, making this an excellent beer to linger on.

Bottle at ultimage glasgow tasting. Aroma is very cherry, noteably fake but still very nice, quite sweet and yeasty with spicey hints. Taste is similar, very drinkable for the %, lacking body somewhat but still a belter of a fruit beer.

marcus (6489) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 30, 2007
On tap at Luka’s Taproom (Oakland, CA). This red beer poured with a miniscule pink head. There is a very sweet cherry flavor with a slightly harsh finish. Makes a great dessert beer.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2007
On tap at Three Floyd’s Brewpub and served in a Kasteel goblet. This beer poured a beautiful burghandy color with a thin, lasting pink head. The aroma of the beer was dominated by sweet, tart cherries (not a bad thing!). The flavor consisted of sweet cherries, mild fruity yeast esthers, and a faint note of alcohol. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and sugary with moderate carbonation. A great tasting brew that may be just a bit on the sweet side. Otherwise, very well done.
