4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful clear almost cherry red. Outstanding head volume and retention, below normal lacing.
Rich nose of sweet cherries and tart cherries with a hint of biscuit.
Heavy medium body with an almost creamy texture. Expertly carbonated yielding effervescence from the middle on and really making the sweet cherry pop in the middle and tart cherry in the finish. Brew master perfection.
The flavor profile is World Class - this is the best fruit ale I’ve ever had. It has intense cherry flavor, both sweet and tart, reasonable complexity and is perfectly balanced for a cherry forward ale. It begins with a burst of sweet cherry flavor that effervesces into a tart middle. Underneath the tartness is a light biscuit and a hint of sour cherry. The finish is a slow fade of sweet cherry that also has a prominent tartness and a hint of sour cherry that yields a subtle pucker.

Had a friend say that she preferred this over New Glarus Belgian Red, so I needed to try it. Well, it was good, but not that good. Reminded me more of a cherry tootsie roll. A little too chocolatey for my taste.
