Pours deep red with a thin off-white head. Very sweet aroma of cherries. Taste is very tart with strong cherry presence. Very hard to drink much of this because of the sweetness.

Well what can I say, dessert in a bottle and liquid form. I drank this with a friend this weekend, and I did not want to share it. Strong cherry taste, pretty color of soft pink-red. If I did not know better I would never beleive it was a beer. Way to go!!

An outstanding and unique beer. Doesn't even taste like beer. More like a beer/champaign mix. Nice change excellent taste.

Pours like Champagne into flute. Murky red liquid topped by a quickly disappearing thick rose head. No lacing. Cherry aroma (duh) not too overpowering. Glad to see this. So often the aroma in fruit beers is too much. Taste was fruity with yeasty finish. Moves between sweet and sour while on the tongue. Cherry Pie in a bottle.

Pours a cloudy brown, with a moderate head. Nose is cinnamon with cherries. Flavor is like an entire cherry pie, crust included, with a bit of cinammon sprinkled on top.

Incredible aroma of cherry, gorgeous red-amber color, unbelievable taste of fresh cherries - quite sweet, didn’t linger as long as expected on the palate. Overall an awesome fruit beer, highly recommend some chocolate while drinking it.

I’ve been looking forward to trying this beer for a very long time, and it didn’t disappoint. Pours a hazy reddish brown. Aroma and flavor is all sour cherry. Extremely well balanced, with a touch of sweetness that plays off the sour nicely. Good stuff.

Hint of cherry with a smooth taste that ends with a tart kick to it, liked it.

Poured into 2 large wine glasses to share with a friend. Fantastic aroma that overpowers the local vicinity. Ruby red coloring with some nice lacing and a strawberry-cream head. The best way to describe this "beer" is an alcoholic cherry cream soda with a slightly bitter aftertaste. This would be an excellent dessert beer and I thought it was balanced nicely. It was somewhat over-the-top, but it could have turned out terribly if attempted by other brewers. This beer redefines what "beer" can be.

Finally broke down and bought a bottle to share with some friends. Even my wife, who doesn't like cherries enjoyed this brew. The cherry flavor and aroma are not overdone and the carbonation is excellent. The bottle was open for half an hur and every pour was like the bottle was just opened. The background is a belgian beer and the foreground is a freshly opened cherry 7up. One of a kind brew that we will purchase on rare occasions.
