3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle generously shared by yourefragile.
Pour yields a reddish-brown colored brew with a short fizzy head that recedes somewhat quickly. The nose carries a strong bit of cherry and cranberry as well as underlying earthiness. Some tartness coming through, as well as fruit skin. Flavor is moderately tart but has far too much underlying sweetness. Body is medium and appropriate, but there’s too much residual sweetness coming through. Pretty nice for a fruit beer, but pales in comparison to Belgian Red and, to a lesser degree, Raspberry Tart.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper red from the bottle with thin khaki head. Aroma of tart cherries and crisp sour apple. Taste is more toward the apple, but nice sour sweetness. Clean, crisp finish with a nice lingering tartness. Very nice, sucks they only made it once.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 mL bottle, received in trade from TheHOFF43, and shared at Ale Alpharetta. It pours a dark, brownish-orange, with a minimal tan head. The aroma is apples, cranberries, cherries, caramel, and vanilla. Fruity, mellow sweetness, with a very light sourness. Medium body, creamy, and a little sharp. Overall, this is a nice, very fruity, flavorful beer. Very well made, with depth and complexity. The mouthfeel is a little flat and disappointing, but otherwise, a great beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear ruby-amber with a nice light tan head. Aroma has a strong strawberry overtone - I LOVE strawberries! A bit of malt pokes through. Flavor is largely strawberry, sweet but not cloying, a little sour, with a malt underpinning. Firm texture is loaded with fizz. What a nice discovery.

Bottle, fresh, bought in Wisconsin today 7/15. Pours a dark cherry red. Aroma’s of cherry, bit of apple. Taste is a melange of fruit. Sweet and fruity, very minimal beer about it, but it’s nice in that way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs; thanks Beerpig317). Looks good; a slightly hazy reddish orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes solid; apples, cranberries, and cherries with an apple juice-like mouthfeel and sweetness. Maybe a touch of oak as well, but im reaching to look for it. A good fruit beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ ’Er Klopt Iemand Op De Deur" Samson & Gert Bierproeving I. Obtained from a trade, thanks Joe! Dark yellow colour, cloudy, some white foam. Soft carbonation. Very fruity nose of sweet apples and sweet cherries. Bit sourness but a lot of sugar and sweeteners. Why do people rate this beer so high?
