Sampled from bottle @ RBBWG 2013. Clear mahogany red color, small off-white head. Aroma and taste are very very sweet, some chemical cherries and an incredible amount of fruit. Not my thing Iím afraid.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Courtesy of Skyview. Dark red color with a large head. Aroma of cranberries and cinnamon. Tart cranberry flavor with a decent showing of cherries. Pretty sweet. More reminicent of their Cran-bic than Belgian Red, which is not a bad thing.

Bottle shared at SL via Tara... Light purple tint, small head. Great nose on this beer. Smells like raspberry/cherry pie. Taste reminds me of the raspberry tart....just a little lighter body wise. Tons of cherries, light apple notes. Sweet but not sugary. Body has an oily base with a good amount of carbonation. Overall.... really enjoyed this beer. Wish I had more. I could drink this all the time

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Picked up a 750 ml bottle at Discount Liquors in Waukesha, WI. Pours a ruby red caramel colored brew with a thin beige head that quickly dissipates to a film top and minimal lacing. Aroma of both tart and sweet berries, some light caramel malt, almond marzipan, and some rosť wine. Taste is medium bodied, both sweet and tart berries, some light apple and some tart spice. Finish is a touch on the sweet side, with aftertaste of berries, apples and tart cranberries. A touch fruitier than the regular Belgian Red but still would drink this anytime.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours more ruby than brown with minimal head. Smell is cherries, apples with a light sweetness. Taste is mixed fruit juice of apple raspberries, and cherries. Slight marzipan, medium tart, refreshingly dry. Fantastic mistake indeed. I could drink this all day and at 5% it could be quite possible.

Yeah it is stupid good, yeah it tastes like fruit juice, and yeah you should get this while you can. It is all of the good about Belgian Red with a mixed complexity of fruits, slight oakiness, and just tart enough to pucker before a wash of fruit sugar to finish.
