Ferris (6340) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle vintage 2012 - Sour strawberries a bit of bready funk. Some dark fruit very complex and pleasant. Cloudy amber with a thin head. Sour strawberries smells better than it tastes. Pretty good fruit retention considering age but the sourness was a bit much.

TheCrowsNest (76) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours a great pinkish red. Slightly acidic aroma of tart fruit and marzipan. Cherry flavors balanced by sweet almond. Light acidity, finishes dry. Very unique beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

andrewturba (1125) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Pours a muddy copper with a touch of red, big off white head that lasts and sticks all the way up the glass. Aroma consists of cherry(on the slightly sour side), and bready toasted malts. Flavour is a sour cherry(not over the top), bit of a creamy mouth feel, nutty, overall a smooth 8 percent fruit beer perfect for a holiday dessert.

Ughsmash (7225) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottled. Poured light-medium orange with a tall, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up fairly sweet almonds and cherries with accents of oak and a pinch of molasses.. very pleasant. The flavor found nutty notes and aged caramel at the core, with sweet and tart cherry juice plus oak laced throughout.. light oxidation and cherry juice on the dry finish. Medium-bodied with fairly filling carbonation on the palate.. OK feel and flow, but I enjoyed the dryness in the end.. aiight.

Nose of fduity almond candy cherry candy. Poura golden amber thin head. Flavors of candied cherry almond notes hay and dust. Interesting sweet fruitiness.

Gription79 (2393) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - MAR 2, 2013
Shared with Doug at the bayou. Poured from a 375 ml bottle. Pours pink with a thin quickly dissipating head. Lots of earthy almond notes. Slight chocolate covered cherry character. There is a Belgian strong/Triple yeast character. Nice holiday beer.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
375 mL bottle courtesy of Jer, served in a stem glass. Pours hazy amber with a hint of red with a small tan head that fades slowly to a thin cover and leaves a moderate amount of lace. On the nose, there are notes of medium toasty malts, sour cherry and honey, along with a hint of earth. The flavour is medium sweet, with a hint of sour throughout. Honey sweetness is paired with cherry and a hint of grains. The finish is long and fruity with slightly sour cherry, honey and touches of yeast and spice. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a nice cherry brew with big honey notes. Very tasty and well crafted as always from Mikkeller. 2012-08-04

ryecatcher (881) - South Side of Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Pours a pinkish amber (if that makes any sense) with a spotty and slightly pink-tinged off-white head, outstanding retention and lacing. Nose is faint, with a bit of yeasty funk and not much else. Mouth is creamy, medium-full bodied with some wheatiness and lightly sour fruitiness mingled with a slight caramel sweetness on the back end, finishes with some nuttiness (I’m guessing that’s the almonds, but it certainly isn’t almondy in the marzipan or amaretti sense). This might have been better a year ago... the cherries were almost undetectable, but all I can rate is what I’m drinking right now.

mnoud (290) - Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2013
2013.02.20 - Mikkelker Ris a la M’ale - 12.7oz bottle in small goblet glass. Assuming 2011 Vintage, bottle marked 8891108. Pours a mostly clear orange-tan. Vigorous off white foamy head at first. Little to no head remains after initial burst. What does remain is very fine bubbles to foamy. Aroma is subdued tartness, maybe. Mouthfeel is light. Carbonation seems low but definitely present. Taste follows nose. Light golden ale with subdued cherry and almond flavor. There is a bit of sweetness that envelops your tongue at first, but the sweetness never really follows through. Seems like a great balance of flavors and carbonation. And at 8% it is a good balanced drinker nog some heavy dessert beer. Unique brew as far as I know, and seemingly well done. I'm glad I bought two. Aroma 7/10, Appearance 3/5, Taste 8/10, Palate 4/5, Overall 16/20

doublebock (518) - California, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Light brown with pinkish hue and white foam. No much of an aroma. Notes of honey and wheat with a solid but not overwhelming cherry flavor. You can definitely pickup the almond.
