Bottle. Poured a cloudy reddish-purple color with a light white head. No lacing. Aroma is very strong with a nice sour cherriness to it. Mouthfeel is excellent as it is very smooth. Flavor is a nice tart cherry taste with a nice sour aftertaste. An excellent beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
5oz draft sample from brewery tasting room. Deep ruby red, filtered clear with a pinkish head. Intense aromas of ripe cherries, sour cherry candy, dark fruits like plum, against a moderate malt backbone (and no evident hop characteristics). Palate was both sweet and sour, characteristic of the style. Good carbonation. Bit sweet for my taste, but I can see why so many love it. Would make for an excellent dessert pairing, or as a dessert on its own.

Pours a deep rich mahogany-like purple. Almost a plum color. The cherry aroma emanates. It tastes like cherries, but with enough tartness to balance some of the sweetness. It is very sweet though. A very good dessert beer, but not sure I’d like this if it opened my night.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark, red moscato red. Sugary head with nice lace. Aroma is a nice vivid cherry, as it warms and swirling it, you get a breadyness that is like cherry pie. Has some mineral to it. Taste up front is sweet cherry, foamy body with cherry dominating taste. Finishes with a tapering light tartness to clean up its medium sweetness. Real nice. The Belgian in this is really clean, didn’t get much other character and couldn’t detect hallertau hops much but maybe they just enhance it. The oak is what maybe enhancing the cherry taste with a vanilla or possibly a coconut character with it. Also a hint of woodiness in aroma and mellow dry woodiness in taste.

Almost drinks lime a wine. Maybe in the car too long.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the great classics of the American craft beer revolution, gift from Ster who brought it all the way from Wisconsin for me, which I am very grateful for; shared with her and other people at Belgium Chimipalooza. Thick, creamy, off-pinkish head over a hazy, deep cherry-red beer with beautiful ruby glow. Aroma of sweet cherry candy and cherry jam, candied lemon, caramel, lime zest, vanilla, grape peel, ripe blackberry, stewed apple, fruit pie. Sweet, initially almost candyish but still not cloying cherry flavour, very rich like a cherry pie and cherry jam, residual sugars, soft bready wheat base, thin but effective lemony sourish ’sting’ peeping up in the middle and lasting till the end, balancing the cherry pie sweetness; spritzy body, sweet and sourish finish, full and not too sticky. Totally different from what I had expected, even reminded me a bit of Lindemans Kriek at a certain moment, but altogether very different from the sweetened cherry lambics at the same time, more bready, more ’moelleux’ and - most importantly - much more genuinely fruit-like. Very interesting and unique, too bad this isn’t more easily available outside of Wisconsin.
