Understandable that this beer’s won tons of awards. Starts with a slightly sour cherry taste, finishes with a lingering aftertaste with slight hints of chocolate. Bright red in color with near constant bubbling and a strong cherry aroma. Tastes great, looks great - a truly impressive beer.

The beer have an intense red color with a hint of brown in it. Wow, the aroma is almost overwhelming. Its dominated by a big cherry aroma with bitter almond and caramel, red apples, cinnamon and oak lingering in the background. The taste is also dominated by cherries, cinnamon and oak. It has a nutty bitterness to it that that i find most interesting. Finally the beer has a fizzy minerality that i find a bit disturbing. Overall a great fruit beer!

I had to break this out to show a friend what beer with fruit could be. Almost overwheleming, but so good!

Beer has dark red appearance with ivory head. Nice lacing down the glass. Initial taste is sharp however the cherry comes out almost immediately. Finishes mellow flavor lingers nicely.

The aroma of this beer is amazing. You may think aroma is not that important, but this beer is excellent proof that aroma matters. The beer also has a great flavor. I have tried it as a complement to red sauces and it makes a great foil for these types of dishes.

I cannot really detect any malt or hop flavor, however that is not bad since this has cherry flavor so complex that it makes up for it. A sentiment I share with many of you is a wariness of fruit beers, but this is trully excellent. There is no cough syrup flavor or texture. The sweetness and tartness are in perfect harmony. Must try it.

It had been a few years since I last had this beer. Shared one with some friends...It did not disappoint. Beautiful nose with the perfect melding of the cherries. Wonderful
