2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle consumed at home. It pours clear deep ruby - brown with a medium beige head. The nose is earthy, toasted stuff, tangy dark fruits, plum, berry, big Dr Pepper character, bakewell tart and marzipan. The taste is slightly tart, tangy dark fruits, sweet glacé cherry, Dr Pepper, cherry cola, cherry bakewell sort of syrupy, stewed berry and some alcohol on the back end. Medium body and moderate, yet soft carbonation. Interesting, but too sweet for my liking.

Drank at the P.Box in Minooka, PA on tap poured into a damn’d fancy glass. Has a nice subtle cherry aroma, pours a deep, dark red, with a bit of white head. A bit sweet for a red, due to the cherries tastes more like a Flanders red.

Pours a reddish-brown from a bottle. Aroma of raspberries and lingonberries. Flavor a sweet-sour fruit leather. A big hit of metal as I get through the glass. Very good beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. ramata carica con evidenti riflessi rubino con schiuma quasi rosata. aroma piuttosto complesso ma non finissimo, fruttato, di frutta rossa (amarena) e di bosco (lamponi), zucchero filato, vaniglia, legno. Gusto dolce amabile, acida, senza gli eccessi del lambic, poco/nulla amara, con frutta, zuicchero e vaniglia molto evidenti. Mediamente corposa, carbonatazione poco fine, spigolosa, ma poco per lo stile. Calda ma piacevolmente subdolo il grado alcolico.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’ve had multiple bottles of this beer, at multiple stages moving towards the expire date. It became sweeter and less acidic over time, with more cherry burst flavor and a deeper taste.
Moderate malty, caramel, cherry, almonds.
Dark ruby beer with an average off-white head.
A lot of cherries, really sweet and moderately sour, earthy notes. The combined taste of dark beer and cherries is quite extraordinary.

Mahogany red with a solid one-finger head and ok lace. Black cherry aromas accompanied by raspberry, toast, malt and yeast. Cherry sweetness and raspberry tartness are featured in the flavor profile that includes toasted malts and earthy notes. Medium to full body, lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a tart finish.

Brick red with minimal fizzy tan head. Cherries, dark fruits, sugary malts, some tart berries round out this brew. Medium bodied. Finish is sweet and lightly tart cherry. Very fruity from start to finish. Enjoyable.

Btl pours reddish brown cola color with an off white head that fades fast leaving no lace on glass. Aromas of cherries,grapes,wood,gummy bears and a hint of vinegar. Tastes of sweet cherries,raisins,prunes and alcohol. Medium body,slick,syrupy mouthfeel, a little under carbonated and slightly tart astringent finish. A pretty decent beer, just to sweet for me.
