Deep red in color yet still brite. Froathy red head, just the way I like em. The aroma is like a fresh cherry pie. I can almost smell the crust. The flavor seems to have a cinnamon like character that takes away from the sweetness of the cherries and adds to the pleasure of the malt. Sour tart and dry in the finish. A true delite.

Hook it up to my veins!
Quite possibly one of my favorite beers of all time, the tart balance with a slightly sweet twinge at the end makes this an absolutely irresistible aperatif.

Pours a beautiful red with a very thin beige head. Aroma is completely dominated by cherries. The taste is again dominated by cherries, but you also get a sweet kick that combines into one fantastic brew. Very drinkable beer and probably the best fruit beer out there. This is one that I could drink over and over again!

Pours a hazy reddish amber color, with a very light pink head. Light lacing that doesnít last long. Has a very tart cherry flavor. Leaves my lips smacking after every sip. Very good beer.

Poured into a tulip glass. It is a beautiful sight to behold in the glass. Itís really red, but light shines through and it is pretty clear. Aroma of both sweet and tart cranberries with a bit of sourness. The taste is complex and delicious. This beer is a real treat if you can get your hands on it!

75cl Bottle at home. I had been really looking forward to this beer for some time as im a huge fan of cherry beers. The pour was very deep red and produced a 1cm head that did not hang around. The aroma was upfront cherry and almond with a strong medicinal quality. As the aroma had hinted to me the taste was a huge let down. Way too sweet and medicinal. This is even sweeter than a Liefmans Kriek! It lacks complexity and does not have you wanting another sip due to its cloying oily palate. I was really dissapointed by this and im not quite sure how they managed to produce a false cherry flavour from real cherrys....

Man, i just love this beer. Deep cherry fruit on the nose. Deep red color with a foamy white head. Flavor just screams I am a great cherry.

This delightful beer arrived in a 750ml bottle, and the pour has a brownish-red pour with a small brownish head. It is hazy, and a bit carbonated, although the head doesnít stay long. Aroma is beautiful cherries, malt, yeast, and tartness. In the mouth it delivers cherries, malt, nutty notes, perhaps a hint of woody oak, a slight, balanced tartness and honey. This is a fabulous beer. Glad I had the chance to sample it with alaskanwarren, thanks Hezron!

Very interesting brew. This is my first time sampling a fuit beer. Tastes like a lambic beer, wine & cherry soda all rolled into one. Perfect blend of sweet & tartness with a semi-dry finish on the palate. This brew has a wonderful cherry aroma and is very "rich" tasting. I wouldnít want to drink this all of the time because itís a little too heavy for me, but other than that this is an excellent and very unique tasting beer.

Iíve had this beer a million times before but never taken the time to rate it.
Deep red body with a small white head. The body is very opaque. The aroma is outstanding. Sour cherries blast out of the glass. The flavor on this beer is crazy good. Good sour cherry flavor with a bit of carbonation which seems to make the flavor pop. Ends on a pretty sweet note. The body is a bit heavy for the flavor but itís pretty light overall. This is a great beer. If I ever get married, Iíll use this in place of champagne for the toast.
