Bam! The aroma is sooo right. Often aroma is appealing from complexity - not here. This aroma is appealing because it is so fresh and true in character. The appearance is as expected, completed by a carrot top. Flavor is equally tart and fruit sweet (not sugar sweet). No notes of oak detected. Finish was surprisingly warm, with decent hopping. Of course, this is a beer worth seeking.

Bottle courtessy of Eyedrinkale. Cherry color and red head. Flavor and aroma of sweet and tart cherries. Light and refreshing. But not very complex.

Unclear red colored beer with a tall peach colored head. Heavy sweet aroma with plenty of cherrires and marzipan tones. Sweet and sour cherry flavor with almond and marzipan. Rather tart and sharp and very flavorfull. An excellent and very tasty fruit beer! Thanks madsberg for sharing!

An unclear red beer with a disappearing beige head. The aroma contains notes of marcipan and cherries. While the flavor contains notes powerful notes of fruit and cherries.

Bottled: Dusty red coloured. Light beige head with a red gleam. Aroma is cherries, marzipan, berries and malt. Sweetness, fruit, some sourness and malt in the flaovur. Very good balance in the sweetness. Ends on a dry and light acidic note. Refreshing. Thanks for this gem, CaptainCougar.

Very interesting...nice rich red color with a thick off-white head that diminishes somewhat quickly leaving a considerable amount of lace. Good fruity aroma with a slight hint of something metallic. The flavor is a well balanced tart with good bit of "cherry-ness." Not for everyday consumption, but certainly a great special occasion brew.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2004 Pours cranberry red with a fizzy pink head that’s mostly diminishing. Nose is loaded with tart cherry and some spice. Light bodied effervescent and refreshing. I rather enjoyed it.

Very interesting brew. This is my first time sampling a fuit beer. Tastes like a lambic beer, wine & cherry soda all rolled into one. Perfect blend of sweet & tartness with a semi-dry finish on the palate. This brew has a wonderful cherry aroma and is very "rich" tasting. I wouldn’t want to drink this all of the time because it’s a little too heavy for me, but other than that this is an excellent and very unique tasting beer.
