4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark cherrywood color with an off white, bubbly head. Taste is dead on, exceptional, pulpy cherry flavor without the aftertaste of a cough syrupy mess. Full and hearty sweetness, slight sourness, makes this first-rate. My girlfriends who don’t like beer would like this beer. I’d pair it with a bread pudding amongst a drizzling of dried cranberries.

Pours a nice ruby red with an off white head. Aroma and taste is sweet and cherry, kind of like cherry pie. Medium carbonation and just flat out wonderful. Need more of this great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a ruby red with a slightly orange head. Sweet cherry aroma. Taste is sweet, almost medicinal cherry, combined against undertones malt. Dry, very slightly tart finish. Not really my style, but a great fruit beer

Pours brownnish with some red, featuring a nice beige head. Some lacing. Aroma is of massive cherries, and raisin bread. Taste is of cherries, very sweet, some acidity, sourness. Malt. Fermented fruits. Overall: Very refreshing, huge cherry taste/aroma. Some feeling of sparkling. Maybe a little bit too sweet.

Bottle shared by Chaney. Thanks Brandon!
Served in a champagne flute, this renowned beer appears remarkably similar to cherry juice. The color is a beautiful, vibrant ruby hue. There is about an inch of head that fades over a few moments.
The smell, which is easily detectable from a few feet away, is reminiscent of cherry pie, with the cherries being predominantly of the sweet variety.
The taste is exactly what the aroma would indicate. Cherry pie, cherry juice, cherry cobbler, cherry soda - you name it. This beer is all about the cherries.
At a mere 4% abv, the alcohol is an afterthought. The feel is pretty good, though the beer is intensely sweet.
Like a great dessert, this is best enjoyed in small quantities. After about 4 ounces, I have had my fill and the beer begins to become cloying.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours medium brown with medium beige head. Some lacing. Aroma: intense sweet cherries, raisin bread. Taste: Cherries, raisin bread and tropical fruits. Really sweet (little lack of balance here), with slight acidity at the end. Syrupy texture. Slight carbonation. Full bodied. Refreshing, but too much sweetness gives it a low drinkability. Good beer overall tough.

Bottle 750 ml. Hazy brown with a small persistent beige head and superb lacing. There’s a ton of sweet cherries in the aroma and slight sourness. Taste if full of sweet cherries. Mouthfeel is sparkling and slight acidic. This one is a true fruit beer and a super example of the style. Maybe a tad too sugary and it affect drinkability. Candy in a bottle!

Pours a dark ruby red. At first aroma is a bit of a couch syrup, but the big whiffs of fresh cherry really come through big and strong. Taste is super, natural tart cherry flavor balanced perfectly with the typical sweetness of a belgian ale.
