So my wife said: it tastes like sangria. Yes it does. I agree. Cherry forward, light bodied, champagne-like bubbles but short-lived fun. I believe better examples of his style exsist.

(from notes) 330 mL bottle into a pint glass at Basement Burger Bar on February 19. The pour is a deep ruby color with a dark pink head, leaving good lace down the glass. The aroma is huge on cherry. It’s delicious. There is a little sourness to it, which is well received. The flavor is just like the aroma, really sour on the beginning of the taste, The cherry tartness stays away until the back end. The mouth feel is quite good. Covers nicely, a little creamy, and the aftertaste is really, really good. There is a lingering tart cherry, with a touch of sourness

pours a deep dark red and has a slight aroma of cherries. overall the taste is of slight cherries with a bit of a sour feel, but on the most part gives of a cough syrup taste. overall this is a great beer to pair with dessert, and is a decent change of pace from the standard IPA or Stout type beers

@ 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.

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.
