I will admit, I am not a fan of most ’fruit’ beers (except Lambics). This one changed my mind. It is fantastic. Dominated by a cherry pie aroma and backed up by spice and fuit from the beer the aroma is truly fine. Refreshingly tart with a fruity acidity that keeps the subtle sweetness from becoming cloying. Not just a real cherry character, but the character of the best cherries you have ever sucked of the pit. Remarkable.

This is great! The nose is so intense with american cherry its bonkers. Just a tiny hint of tartness on the nose. It is so fruity... Its like candied cherries in fact. The taste is fresh and creamy at the same time. Fruity and just a little tart.. I would usually prefer a more sour expression but this works. It a Wisconsin friut bomb and it is a real treat. Very pleased I got to try this. It maynot be the most ballanced beer to date but who cares. It has real personality.

I’m not sure what more I can say about Belgian Red that hasn’t already been said. Fir what it is, it’s 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.

Pours a cloudy red dark reddish brown. A bit of a cider like appearance. Aroma says "drink me". It is of ripened cherries freshly crushed. Taste is of sweetened maraschinos cherries. This is a beer that gives you exactly what you expect when you first pop the cork. A bit of oak tannins add to the complexity. This beer is very unique and deserves a high rating, however, it is a bit too sweet for my tastes. I can see how that would play well with a mass audience.

Wow, i am impressed. this beer is wonderful. possibly the best fruit beer i have ever tasted. You can taste apple pie all over your palate. the cherries, the crust, the cinnimon, slight bits of vanilla,and carmel. Just amazing! Perfectly balanced; sweet and tart.

Like a tart cherry soda at first but with a nice rich profile underneath. Big cherry nose, maybe a little cough syrup. High carbonation is appropriate. Cherry skin in the finish. Bright red color. Belgian yeast character isn’t evident. Pleasant throughout and a nice holiday or dessert beer.

Bottle, thanx to Nisse666. Pours hazy reddish with a small, off-white head. Sweet aroma with lots of cherry, bitter almond. Taste of cherry, sweet/sour, very fruity. Nice flavours, but a bit to sweet imo.
