Pours nice, pinkish gold with two fingers of pinkish head. Fruity aroma with some noble hops. The taste starts with a bit of sour cherry and some malt sweetness. Piney hops come next with very subdued almond notes. Light bodied. If your a fan of marzipan your gunna be happy.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Ariel. Murky pinkish orange. Aroma of graininess, yeast and a bit of cherries. Sweetish flavor with cherries, almonds, graininess, light sourness and a bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Pretty weird, not my thing.

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.

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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
