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

Easily one of America’s finest beers. There are a million things going on in the flavor of this one. Truly a joy to behold in a champagne glass.

Wonderful copper/cherry color. Nice sour ale base with a hint of cherry to balance it all out. Great beer

3.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dull, hazy, dark amber appearance with minimal, off-white head. Foam quickly dissipates leaving ragged lacing. No malt, hops or yeast aroma to speak of, only a nice cherry smell. Taste is light sweetness, slightly sour, tart, and a little salty. A well built beer, but not exactly balanced as the only flavor is cherry. A great representation of the fruit beer style, with the intended cherry dominance. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and average carbonation. The finish is long, and maintains the cherry flavor with a little wheat. A standout beer that met my expectations, and I would recommend to a friend.

Smells like cherry pie filling. Deep red color with a pinkish head. Tastes very sweet, cherry, tart, It’s what I’d imagine you would get if you mixed half & half Belgian blonde ale plus a berry wine cooler with a large glob of pie filling. Not really my thing.

What can I say? This beer is in it’s own class. It has the fruit of a lambic laid over the rich maltiness and yeastiness of a classic belgian style ale. I even detect a bit of bitter hops to balance the cherry sweet & sour notes. This is probably the best beer brewed in Wisconsin and rivals finest from Belgium, the UK or Michigan. If I could reimagine it to my own perfection it would have a tad more alcohol kick near the finish, but that’s quibbling with perfection.

Poured a little cloudy, but upon investigation this is normal. Monster cherry flavor explosion. Quite tart but managable. This is a very unique and well done fruit beer.

This beer pushes the envelope for fruit beers right to the edge. Pours cloudy red with red-ish head. The aroma is nice but not as potent as the first taste which is a stunner. Tart cherries right up front and center. Mellows a bit and finishes strong. Had this for breakfast one morning after a baseball weekend in Milwaukee. Nice way to start the day(even though a bit decadent).
