This stuff is great. Great mix of beer and wine. Hard to drink more than a six pack worth, to sweet on the stomach. Overall though very tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating #2200. 750 ml wax-dipped bottle thanks to Homer’s FBW contest. Aroma is cherries bordering on overripe, flesh and almondy pits. Pours a muddy rust color with a collapsing beige head that falls into a big-bubbly ring; a little lace left behind. Taste is fairly tart, sweet, finishing lightly dry. Tastes like cherry pie filling, with spices (cinnamon) and all, although I don’t think those ingredients are actually in the beer. Really tasty, but I liked the Raspberry Tart a lot more, even though this is rated higher on the site. This one is a little too sweet maybe. Still a phenomenal fruit beer, however.

Pours a Dark Ruby red with a nice cherry head. Aroma is of cherry, malt, hay, lemon, blue cheese. Tastes of cherries, cranberries, raspberries, with a slight tart note. I know Im missing notes in here. Great Beer.

Deep red pour with a single finger head. Aroma is full of sour cherries, almost pie like too. Medium bodied. Sour cherries, almost spicy like cinnamon. Sweet and tart all at the same time. The fruit is just so vibrant, it makes me wonder how they make this happen. Reminds me of eating sour cherries. Fruit character is through the roof. A little lace present. World class beer here.

Bottle shared with friends. Pours blood red with a nice white head. Huge cherry/sweet nose that hits you before your glass is front of you. Taste is wildly cherry and sweet-think a wonderful cough syrup you can’t get enough of. Supremely drinkable.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Large shared bottle.
Given that this is a fruit beer, it really couldn’t taste any better.
The feel too is about perfect.
Aroma: cherry dominated. Appealing but a bit too much cherry candy in the nose.

Bottle in a trade. Pours a plum red with a faint pink head. Aromas of cherries, cherry pie, and oak, almost a faint cinnamon. Flavors of tart cherries, hard cherry candy, cherry tart pastry, oaky tannin finish. Sharp, highly carbonated, acidic mouthfeel. Very sweet and tart. Great beer.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Got in a trade: thanks RRC87! My first winter shipment so I had to have a cold one right out of the box. Split with my wife.
A. Pours a hazy deep red with brown and burnt orange highlights. A small off-white head rises up ever so slightly and leaves night trails of residual lacing down the glass.
S. Tart cherry with vanilla, a touch of oak, and a bit of medicinal character.
T. Tart cherries with some oaky wood character. These give way to a bit more sweetness with some vanilla and a touch of lemon juice. Ends fairly dry with just a touch of residual tartness.
M. On the light side of medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation that helps pick up the residual flavors on swallow.
D. Incredibly drinkable - I wasn’t a big fan of the raspberry tart so I got these for my wife not expecting to like them too much. It looks like I’ll be trading for some more of these in the near future.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark red hue with a thick head. A decent lacing is left afterwards. Smells of cherries, malt, and wheat. The taste is not too strong but somewhat bitter. The cherry is not too overpowering and the malt and wheat provide a nice backdrop. This is probably one of the finest beers I have tried to date.
