@ Party Source / Bellvue KY --- Clear very dark red with a tan head that quickly drops to a thin cover, streamers of lace. Taste is cherry and malt. It has sour characteristics, but doesn’t actually qualify as a sour ale, at least by taste. Tart is the best description, as though this is an ale that has cherry flavoring. Decent, easy to drink, it hides the 8.5% very well.

"The Key to Heaven" is also the name of a pamphlet some nice gentlemen in short sleeves and ties gave me one day.

pours a nice reddish brown with a quickly dissipating average tan head. This beer tastes mostly like sweet and sour cherries with a slight bit of chocolate. This beer tastes a lot like wine.

Aroma of a cherry Tossie Roll. SWEET/SOUR CHERRY! A thin head quickly dissipates leaving a white ring with moderate lacing upon a solid cherry coke hued pour. The taste is (thankfully) just short of surpy sweet; there are enough sour elements to balance sweetness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, I liked the beer. The taste, while sweet, is balanced and very enjoyable. I think this brew will pare well with a numbers of foods.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear dark ruby color with a tan/pink head. Cherry juice aroma. Cherry and caramel malt flavor. Vinous character with a bit of tartness. Very good.

If you like cherries this beer is for you. I thought the cheery flavor was fake but it isn’t this beer is aged in cherries. Smells like cherries and tastes like a woodsy cherry elf brew.

33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Hetty. Ruby brown with a beige head. Cherry aroma and taste. The sourness is pushed a bit to the background due to the cherries. While I absolutely love all Flemish Oud Bruins the addition of cherries, thus creating a sort of kriek lambiek, just isn’t my cup of tea. In that aspect it’s a disappointment; on the other hand: I had lots of krieks that were worse.

dark ruby colour, half inch of pinkish beige head, which disappears relatively quickly, leaving back some lacing; aroma of cherry, some marzipan, maybe some raspberry; taste of cherry again with significant bitterness and hints of marzipan; surprisingly dry beer; not bad
