Pours a nice deep, dark cherry red with a nice little pink head that quickly dissipates. The nose is a huge rush of cherries. It is not as sweet as you would expect. Definitely has a rich cherry flavor with a touch of chocolate. Not overly sweet or cloying in any way. Finishes clean with a nice bitterness.

Suttree (5265) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Wow, this was a surprise. Itís really, really good. Huge cherry nose, as one might expect. Deep, rich cherry flavor - almost decadent. Cherries mix nicely with some chocolate and a subltle, mellow bitterness. On tap, Thirsty Monk, Asheville.

DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2008
Nose of cherry and yeast. Pours a deep ruby red beer with a small disappearing pink head, light bodied and sticky. Taste is of cherries, vinegar, malt, cloves and spices. Bitter sweet finish. Considering I am not a fan of cherry this is quite good.

17thfloor (2433) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Holy %$&#, is really what I said after the first taste. I get the added cherries but the cherry juice added part is what had me wondering. Pours a darker, but clear, ruby with fine pink head. I dig the aroma, very strong of fresh cherries. I canít really taste any belgian ale here... seriously just tastes like cherry juice. This is by far the most SERIOUS fruit beer Iíve tried. I would love to try a belgian ale with some cherry flavor, sounds like a good idea, but this is just cherry juice all the way. Somewhat medicianal and bitter. Palate is velvety, wonderfully smooth carbonation, medium-full body, however, just a tad too syrupy.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2008
Draught: Aroma of cherries, sour mix, funk, medicine, vomit, and blue cheese. Poured dark orange/red in color with a huge, foamy, pink head that lasted throughout. Clear. Excellent lacing. Sweet flavor. Tastes of cherry, funk, and medicine. Medium body. Thin, oily texture. Soft carbonation. Dryish, metallic finish. Better than I had expected.

On tap at Liars Club in Alpine Ca. Nice sweet flavors of cherries. Almost to sweet. But still pretty good.
