OMG! This beer is outstanding! A good malt with cherry juice makes this beer taste like a sour cherry soda. The only drawback is the $6 a bottle price tag.

Enjoyed after a day at the beach w/ scoobs, stew, + his crew (Page is a hotty!) .. . Pours a dark ruby colour with a medium full head, has a real quality lacing factor also .. . Smell is of sweet kids cherry juice and fresh pressed cherries+ dark cherry skins, some cherry brandy too ( The best flavor comparison would actually be a cherry fizz lollipop, the one with that fizzy shit in the middle..) .. .. Loaded with flavour: albeit not that complex, very clean and sweet, still a sweeter juice added lambic but damn enjoyable .. . .. Not for the serious Belgian kriek fan, but fuckin tasty and i enjoyed it... 34į 45′ 54″ S, 70į 17′ 11″ W

Deep red color with a light pink head. Aroma and taste absolutely delightful. Reminded me of cherry coughdrops.

Poured a beautiful Ruby red with thick, reddish head. Nice aroma of cherries. Flavour was nice and sweet but balanced. A superior brew.

"Deep pure red body with a fluffy light pink cap, this brew looks good but very girly for a fruit beer its perfect. Phenomenal smelling brew the cherry is coming through strong and sweet without being fake, the more I smell the less sweet it is and it becomes more of a sour metallic aroma the malt can be detected but its very mild. Tasty so very tasty Iím drooling between sips, sweet and sour, tons of cherry. This goes down so easy so smooth and very clean itís not disgustingly sweet like other cherry beers bellview creek is destroyed by this. Must go buy more of this so dam good best fruit beer Iíve ever had."

Restrained cherry aroma of cough drops, sweet cordial. Emphatic grenadine red, pink-white head. Beautiful flavor, sweet front, sour/tart finish. Tang on tongue, though some medicinal quality might be a focus of some criticism. But for me, it is an elixir, looking like a potion you would find in a Lord of the Rings movie. Refreshing!

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2006 Smells like sour cherries, quite strongly. The head is white and flaky. The beer is quite sour as well. It reminds me more of a Flemish sour than a lambic, but whatever. My re-rate is almost exactly the same score and description.

Fresh cherries and a slight mustiness in aroma. The flavor is cherries, a tart middle and a slightly sweet finish, all with a mild funkiness. Very good lambic, canít say thereís anything wrong with this.

Seattle, Bottleworks: The label was screaming cherries, so I picked it up for a trial. This stuff tastes great! Tastes just like cherry soda, only it's beer. Nice cherry red color. Tart like a cherry but finishes nice n smooth.
