Golden red color for the body, with a heavy head typical of this type of beer. Vinegar and citrus fruits complete the aroma. Good tartness in the flavoring, very similar to SweetTarts candy. Clean ending, highly enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(375ml bottle, vintage 2004, best by 9/14, 5% ABV) Large beige head with pink notes, atop a clear red body. Aroma is medium sweet, sour cherry, light barnyard, oak. Taste is moderately sweet, cherry, light tartness/sourness, faint oak. Low carbonation, slightly sticky light-medium body, quite drinkable. Needs a bit more tartness and carbonation, but it does pretty well despite these quibbles.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark ruby red with pinkish head that fades to a ring of bubbles. Lots of vinegar and sour cherry in aroma, very woody. Flavor is almost dominated by the woody, funky farmhouse character. Cherries come through towards the finish, slightly tart/sour, but not very puckering. Very easy drink, just not as up front as I would like.

This tart, fruity beverage transports you back to a barnyard in medival europe, sipping it as you sit on a fence, wrapped in a horse blanket, overlooking a cherry orchard. Very interesting brew that rings up your DNA and asks do you remember me?

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of myself. Pours a hazy dark pinkish red with a large diminishing pink fizzy head. Quite bubbly. Nice, sweet and slightly sour cherry aroma. As nice as the aroma is the flavour is even better, a very smooth and delicious cherry pie taste. Not too sweet either, it’s just right. What a pleasant surprise this beer is, it just may be the best fruit beer I’ve had.
