COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very intense Belgian style sour cherry beer. Packed with whole tart cherries for a HUGE mouth-filling flavor. This is NOT a typical ’flavored’ beer, rather, the fruit is used in such a way to create a traditional albeit unique beverage.

A beautiful beer that will make you re-evaluate what a good fruit beer should be, and if you find a strait up Kreik to be too bittersweet you always Half it up with a stout.

Growler shared by JRedmond. Deep reddish with an off white head. Big cherry jammy notes, almost woody, with light grainy notes, and a long sweet natural cherry finish. Not quite candy sweet, not at all cloying or anything like that. Really damn good.

Growler shared by JRedmond at Max’s tasting. Pours beautiful cherry red with a soft foamy head. Aroma is sweet maraschino cherries and a bit of tart cherry skins too. The taste is a terrific balance between sweet and tart without being cloying sweet or overly tart. Notes of cherries, sweet honey and apples. The cherry is the standout here. I’m suprised to see the ABV is 8.0% because there is no prescence of alcohol here at all. Just delicious.

PhillyCraft (2852) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Growler at Haydens with a bunch of head. Pours a hazy cranberry red, with light head and lacing. Aromas are cherry perfume, tart cherry, hebals, cherry pie, cherry juice and skins. Taste is much of the same. Medium to fuller bodied. Sticky palate. This is very good but I would still take belgian red or enigma over this. Love me some ludens yo.

Growler shared by ygtbsm94. Thanks Brad! A: Ruby hued with a gigantic tan head that coats the glass in lacing. S: The aroma is more subtle than the taste. Scents include cherries, cherries, cherries with hints of cherry pie and cherries. Oh, yeah I almost forgot...cherries. It’s really that simple. T: Cherries, fresh from the tree. The beer is sweet but not cloying. This is without a doubt my favorite fruit beer that isn’t sour. It’s very drinkable and enjoyable. Other beers of this ilk often quickly become cloying and lose their appeal. Not the case with this well-crafted gem. M: Smooth and tasty. Great carbonation level, especially from a growler. D: Surprisingly easy to drink, as the beer has considerable sweetness. One would think the beer would become cloying, but it’s just so tasty I keep going back for more.

Pours a clear ruby color with a thin white/pink head. Aroma has notable cherry...a bit like juice meets wine. Flavor has sweet and vinous cherry notes...mild tartness. Mouthfeel is full and a bit sticky...finish is vinous cherry and dry.
