Quevillon (2842) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2013
375 ml bottle purchased at Westmere Beverage Center (Albany, New York) on September 18, 2012. Red brown, little head. Weak aroma of cherries sour, a little sugar maltiness. Taste sour cherry juice, a little dry with dry leaf. Not really sour at all, but it is flate, a shame!

mcmisko (356) - New York, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a hazy dark pink, little white foam head. Smells nutty and fruity. Taste has a solid malt back bone with some fruit sweetness and nut. It is quite balanced for a fruit beer, and pleasant. Med bodied. Alcohol hidden. clean after taste

On tap at Mission Dolores. Pours hazy light red with white head. Aromas of cherries, light tartness, and some sweetness. Flavor was sweet with cherries, a light amount of tartness, and a bit of a nutty note. Light mouthfeel. Interesting.

UPDATED: AUG 19, 2015 On tap at Hopnosis 2012. Know mention of what vintage this is, but I have to presume it’s 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 it’s 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 (9025) - 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.

zacgillbanks (4156) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2013

baraciisch (2775) - 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 (12604) - 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. Doesn’t taste like 8% ABV at all.
