Just an amazing beer if you like cherry. You can smell the cherries long before you take your first drink. It does have a cough syrup smell but the texture is smooth and the lambic base taste does present itself after you take a drink. Pours red with very small head.

If you like cherry, this is the beer for you. The bottle I had had a slightly different label than what is pictured here. A great, easy to drink fruit beer. Beautiful color.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark red color, with a beige head. Aroma is straight cherries, flavor is straight cherries. Medium mouthfeel. I must say i’m glad i shared this with my family for christmas desert, because i couldn’t handle a whole bottle myself, just too sweet, but i must say, then 8 or so ounces i had was very good. Very nice for dessert.

750ml bottle. Cherries, cherries everywhere. Beautiful dark hazy red pour with a pink head. Aroma is strongly cherries. Taste is sour cherries. A little bit of the pit in there. Amazing beer. This is the beer you give to someone who doesn’t like beer.

Bottle thanks to Devin. Huge sour cherry flavors, great malty balance. Nose was sweet and dry, appearance was ruby with a beige head and palate was lively and dry. Nothing over-powered and the cherries were so sweet yet the beer finished so tart and dry. Really nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy ruby pour with a thick creamy khaki head with a hint of pink. Strong sweet cherry aroma. Difficult to detect anything else. Very strong flavor of sweet cherry juice with a tart mouth puckering finish. Creamy small bubble high carbonation level. Very intense ... definitely something you need to be ready for. I’m not a huge fan of fruit beer but I can certainly appreciate this one and see why it a consistent winner.

Bottle thanks to polomagnifico. Pour nice reddish color with slight white head. Nose is sweet and full of cherry aromas. Flavor is same as the nose with nice cherry flavors showing up and a slight bit of tartness at the end. Nice long finish to it as well. Great beer that would go great with dessert.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle wax sealed. Pour was a deep red. Flavor was of tart cherries and a little apple. A bit o sweet ontop of the tart to finish. Lots of carbonation. I remember the flavor of tart cherries being the very dominate flavor and its something to expect.
