DrSilverworm (9456) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2015 On tap at Hopnosis 2012. Know mention of what vintage this is, but I have to presume its the most recent one. Mostly clear dark red color. Minimal white head. Little lace. Only a medium body, on the light side for 8%. Light smooth carbonation, very drinkable. Almost like a fruit juice, but a but with some fantastic subtle spices as well. Cherry, cranberry, little nutty. Interesting fruit beer, but its still just a little too fruity sweet for me, personally. 6/3/6/4/12

Update rate 8/19/15: Sample from a bottle that was found behind the bar open at Ei8ht Ball. Nice almond present, along with the cherry. Hazy amber with a thin off-white head. Leaves some decent bits of lace. Moderate sweet, very light bitter. Solid christmas cherry nutty ale, with a mild belgian nuance. It is what it is, and it works.

DuffMan (8628) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle, shared with mmmIPA. Hazy pour, more orange than red, with a lively thick white head that retains beautifully. Aroma is sweet and honeyish, with soft melon fruit. No cherries on the nose. The palate is much the same, sweet honey-kissed malts, lightly spicy, soft melon fruit essence, very lightly tart finish. Again, no cherries. This was quite delicious, and paired perfecty with our cheese plate, but I would never ever guess this was a cherry beer.

baraciisch (2554) - California, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Reddish brown in color... Aroma of sour cherries and light malts... Flavor is less complex than I would expect from Mikkeller, slightly tart with notes of almonds on the finish, but not terribly sour... Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Benzai (11841) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle thanks to Dutchdrebus. Hazy red color, lightly creamy off-white to slightly beige head that diminishes after a short while. Smell malts, sugar, sweetness. Taste malts, some sweetness, red fruits like cherries. Doesnt taste like 8% ABV at all.

DutchDrebus (5275) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2013
Bottle @ benzai thx to myself. Very hazy red colour with a small creamy white head. Smells sweet, some hops, some iron.. Not a lot of smell. Tastes malty, sweet, red fruits but also quite a lot of iron. I dont like iron in the taste. Medium body, soft, fitting carbo.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2012
37.5 cl bottle and served in my smaller Tripel Karmeliet glass: Pours a nice reddish amber hue with an initial big frothy slightly off-white pinkish head that left very good lace upon the glassware. The aroma has sweet cherry extract character along with some strange band-aid medicinal notes. Some nice almond and toffee vapours along with a hint of oak. The taste has a medicinal, sulfur and minerally off-putting quality. The cherries taste fake as well, I expected a nice tartness I got instead big sweetness. The almond notes and some earthy notes are it only redeeming qualities. DRAIN POUR!!! Even the finish of the mouth feel seems completely wrong. What a waste of my monies.

DeputyAndy (636) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy peach amber with a ton of head. Aroma is sort of a muddled earthiness with some fruit coming through. Taste is very sweet, but not over powering. Slightly nutty, more sweet than it is tart. Very old world earthy. i like it
