Super sweet and syrupy. Fruit flavor is decent but this is just way too sweet for me.

Pours ruby/cranberry colored with a medium tan/orange head...lively...beautiful color. Aroma has tart apple and sweet cherry...mildly vinous. Flavor showcases cranberry a bit more...tart...cherry creeps in...vinous and mildly oaky. Mouthfeel is light/medium and lively with a vinous/oaky dry fruity finish that lingers with cherry/cranberry. Another amazing NG fruit beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Bottle @ Arminís bachelor party. Thanks Caleb! Pours a cloudy reddish appearance with a cream colored head. The nose really smelled like Juicy Juice or a Cran-Apple juice thatís tart with notes of spice, yeast, tons of oak, rich fruits. The fruits are very bright, fresh, and delicious in the flavor with notes of oak, tart cherries, green apples, spices, and tartness. Would love to try this baby again. Update: Fuck yeah.

750 ml bottle. Poiurs a deep reddish color with a small white head. Aroma is mostly tart cherries with touches of cranberry and apple mixed in. Flavor still has a big, beautiful cherry flavor but is a bit tarter, balances everything out quite a bit. More apple and cranberry come out as it opens up a bit more. Medium bodied, finishes on the tart end. Lovely. Beautiful beer from the master of fruit beers.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home with my wife. Appearance is a beautiful crimson color with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Sweet raspberries, cranberries, green apples, tart cherries, light spice, and blueberries in the aroma Awesome fruity smell! Taste is much the same, super fruity, bright berries, tart cherries, red grapes, light wood, spice, cranberries, and pomegranate ending with a lightly tart finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Like drinking cranberry juice mixed with freshly squeezed apples, balanced perfectly with spice and malt. If this is an accident I hope there are more "disasters" like this in the future. My god this was a delicious beer!!!

750ml bottle from Discount in Waukesha. Pours a very clear reddish-brown with a white head. Nice streaky lacing. Aroma has nicely distinct cherry, cranberry and apple notes, with some wood. Taste is of sweet tart cranberry and sour cherry, with some subtle apple contributing smoothness. Light body. Very wine-ish or a richer, less carbonated wine cooler - but with more fruit presence. Finishes sweet and tart, and stays around for a while. Very nice!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2012 Bottle. Pours clear reddish ruby amber with a medium beige head that dissipates with some lacing. Aroma is strong cherry, with granny apple notes as well. Flavor is the same, quite sweet with some compensating tartness (cherry sweet tarts). Very much a fruit forward beer, with wonderully defined cherry notes. Not your typical beer, but quite yummy nonetheless.
