Has a marked cherry flavor and deep red color with a frothy deep head. I like fruit ales and this is one of the best. I was not disappointed. Not an ale for someone used to hops and malts.

Overall, surprisingly good! Long hot alcohol finish offputting. Nice carbonation - cherries, tart cranberry, strawberry. Looks like cranberry juice, with a fluffy nice head.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a super nice two and a half fingered white to a tint of reddishness in the head. The head must have lasted for at least a good three minutes before it even decided to dissipate. Once it did, there was a super thick amount of lacing gracing the sides of the glass very nicely.
The smell was tart cherries.
The taste was tart, sweet and has a touch of sourness but in a good way to complement the flavoring. With a slight refreshing yet crisp cherry aftertaste, the finish ends up being quick and refreshing.
On the palate, this one sits about a medium on the body with a superb sessionability about this one. Wow, I feel like I could pound this all day!
Overall, I didn’t expect this one to be so sessionable. This is an exceptionally well done beer and should be the benchmark for Cherry beers.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Flot orange-rød i glasset med et frodigt, knitrende hvidt/let lyserødt skum. Dufter og smager mere af kirsebærsten end af kirstebærfrugt. Sød mandel-essens, stenet mundfølelse. Bliver ret vammel efter et par slurke...jeg savner syre til at rense mundhulen.

Dunkelrötliches Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr fruchtig, süß nach Kirschen, leicht malzig, so ist auch der Geschmack.

From the 550 ml. embossed bottle. The pour is a kind of reddish-amber with a modest off-white head. Vaguely opaque. Check out those tart and fruity aromas of cherry juice along with that little hint of yeast and malts. Still the cherries are the commanding scent. The body is light to medium with a decent smooth texture. Solid cherry flavor with a tart sour finish. I knew what to expect when I popped open the bottle cap and I got it.

Bottle from a liquor store in Ventura, CA. Medium red pour with an inch reddish white head that recedes to a quarter inch. Aroma is slightly sweet cherry and a little vanilla. Flavor is cherry with a slightly bitter finish. Body and carbonation are at a medium level. I know this beer has mixed reviews, but I like it.

Unique dark red color. Hazy but not all the way thru. Aroma of dark cherry juice, cherry soda, cherry malt, cranberries, malt and dirt. Taste is similar. Interesting. Is it too artificial and sweet? I don?t think so. A sweet metallic finish was the only turn off. I enjoyed it.
