Pours a vivid ruby red with a two-finger head. Amazing lacing. Excellent hoppy nose, punctuated with papaya and caramel. Intense herbal taste, laced with a touch of strawberry and grapefruit. Silky smooth mouthfeel and dry finish.

cloudy dark red, smooth light brownish head. Strong aroma of cherries, sweet marcipan, flavor is cherries, sour citrussy tinge that works extremely well, like an ice cider, quite sweet in general but the citric touch makes it very good.

Perhaps my expectations were off for this one, but it just didnít do it for me. Too little fruityness, which made it almost feel bland.

UPDATED: JUN 6, 2012 Has some powerful scents of cherries. Taste is intense of cherries and has a rather pleasant sour kick with it as well. Amazing for a fruit beer, but one for me is good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 750ml bottle to tulip glass:
Pours a bright pinkish red with a soft pink, sticky head that fades to a thin cap. Nice lacing and hazy beading.
Very pungent on the nose. So much fruit itís ridiculous. Rich cherry, floral bits, white sugar, some honey... massive aromas.
Sweet. Tart. Sour. All cherries. I could never finish a whole bottle. Way too much flavor. Definitely an experience. Like no other beer that I can think of.
Drinkability is relatively low but itís part of the experience. Itís a sweet, aggressive sipper.
I can see why people go nuts over this stuff but itís a bit much for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark red color with a finger head that disapates quickly. Aroma is pungent cherries, slight medicinal notes, slight oak Taste follows the nose, lots of cherries a bit of a medicinal taste but not off putting. Crisp, tart and refreshing. Different in the best possible way, tasting back to back with the raspberry tart and I must say I prefer the tart.
