Bottle. Red pour with dark pink head. Smells of sweet fruit. Very sweet taste with a balanced finish. Good for something different.

Bottle, as pictured. I bought this somewhere in Wisconsin. Poured a clear bright red. Smelled and tasted extremely sweet, very cherry-ey. Awesome beer, just enough tartness in the taste to balance it. Doesnít taste remotely like any beer Iíve ever had, save for their Raspberry one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured into my Founders snifter.
A: Pours a great ruby with pinkish hues around the edges when held up to the light. A nice light pink head forms with a vigorous pour, about 1.5 finger but recedes quickly. No real lace to speak of but a nice ring follows the brew down the glass.
S: Candied cherries up front with a slight tartness. Has a slight medicinal smell but in a good way. Has some hops to it that peak in around the cherrys and nice barley to smooth it out.
T: Hello cherries, so nice to finally meet you! The cherries are extremely sweet and candied in nature, almost like a cherry lollipop. The taste transforms into slight bitterness at the end, but itís very mild.
M: Medium bodied with a great carbonation. Coats the palate with a thinly veiled sweet cherry. A little sticky.
O: I normally do not like fruit beers or sweet tasting beers, but this guy really struck a chord with me. I wouldnít be able to drink it on a regular basis, but it was nice to have after a good dinner. Iím interested to see how the raspberry tart Iíve got in the fridge compares.

Iím not sure what more I can say about Belgian Red that hasnít already been said. Fir what it is, itís perfection. Gorgeous ruby red color with some slight fizzy head. The aroma is intoxicating sour cherry and some hops. I love the way this ale tastes. The sour and sweet cherries are incredible. This one is a real treat.

750ml right after the Rasp Tart. Pours almost the same copper/red color with a nice looking head. Huge ripe cherry aroma wafts from the glass. Sugar, tart funk, and some wheat notes come to mind. Flavor is easy drinking with ripe cherry, caramel, and some funk. Nice and easy drinking. Reminds me of Cerise but 50times better

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 750 ml. bottle. It pours a reddish brown color with a slight head. The nose reminds me of sweet cherries and a freshly opened pack of toilet paper. I am guess there is a little oxidation here. The flavor is on the sweet side and lacks a balancing tartness. There is plenty of cherry flavor to go around through and more oxidized paper too. Light on the tongue and easy to drink, but it just reminds me of a wine cooler. Iím not getting what all of the buzz is about.

Bottle from Jaschais in 2011. Aroma and taste of straight up cherries. Had a distinct and potent flavor with some nice carbonation. Goes down like apple cider, real fast. Great beer.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Itís a rich, sweet dessert beer loaded with cherry flavor that tastes like actual cherries rather than the fake pie filling taste of something like SA Cherry Wheat. Itís really, really good. Lightly tart.
Blends well with Blabaer, Hunahpu, and any other thing Geiger pours it into.

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2013 I?m not going into too much detail here because I could write a book about how wonderful this beverage is. There is a great minor tart & sweet cherry taste. The finish is refreshing. This is a very relaxing beverage. It is a must try.

Bottle shared at weihenheizenís tasting. Pours kind of a murky brown with a little bit of red highlights. Some white foam for a head. The aroma is very much like a cherry jolly rancher. Taste is sweet cherry jam with just a hint of some acidity. Just a slight tingly feel on the tongue for the mouthfeel. Thanks for sharing!
