12 oz bottle. Pours to a light ruby red color, with a soapy, pink head that fades, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is very inviting, with aroma of sweet cherry blossom, and light hop aroma. The palate is firm, with good pale and caramel malt flavors, paired with a refreshing, sour cherry flavor. This beer finishes with more good pale and caramel malt up front, then ends with a refreshing, tangy, cherry sourness that lingers. Very well done fruit beer, that has excellent cherry aromas and flavors that work in harmony with the malt and hop character. You know you are still drinking a beer here, and the cherry character makes it even better. Would make a wonderful aperitif, and very food friendly. I really enjoyed this one, and anyone who appreciates, and "gets" fruit beers, will like this one as well.

yummy!!! in bottle. A beautiful hazy gold beer. Wonderful cherry pie flavor, with almond, lemon and ginger flavors. Smells like pie cherries. Delicious!

As fruit beers go, one of the better ones. Tart and fruity without any medicinal or chemical odor or flavors. Good balance overall and refreshing.

I really enjoyed the cherry in this beer, the cherry flavor is very strong and overwhelming. I am a big fan of strong cherry beers like Krieks so this was right up my alley. The first beer I tried from Smuttynose, and the reason why I came back the their brews.

2007: Hazy, deep cherry red look. Impressive pink head. Clear but with a slight haze. Almost looks like wine. Some thin lace that quickly goes away.
Nice estery ale smell with a hint of a deep cherry. Only a slight sweetness. There is a hint of bitter pine hops. Normal ale with a little more. Flowery.
Excellent ale flavor with a sour/pungent cherry flavor. The sour instead of sweet is perfect for this brew. Delicious. Like a sour cherry wine.
Bubbly like champagne, and yet it’s quite dry. Dances on the tongue. Excellent summery drink that actually has some body. Dynamite. I was sad to finish it. Not so much a beer as closer to a lambic or something, but hit my taste buds just right. I don’t like fruity beers but this one is outstanding.

I had this on-tap at Bocktown tonight. It was the only one I had not sampled (actually I had never heard of it). The waiter told me it was a sour ale so I ordered it. It was served in a snifter and had a beautiful appearance.
Translucent and foggy red body with nice 1 finger white head. Retention was excellent and plenty of lacing was left behind in the glass.
Nose and Taste were very similar. They were strong on sour cherries-but not overpowering. There wasn’t much else to the taste other than the medium tartness. It was sour cherries the whole way through. Very consistent.
Mouthfeel was medium to low carbonation and medium weight body (not thick as most lambics are...which helped the drinkability.) Overall this was a pretty darn good fruit beer. The best cherry flavored one I have had as of yet. Yes, I will have this again.
Serving type: on-tap

12oz bottle from Florian’s. Brownish-red body with a half inch of off-white head that dissipates quickly but leaves some lacing. Smells floral more than anything, with hints of berry-like aroma too. Tastes slightly like cherries with a floral aspect to it too. Sweet with just a little tartness to it. Light body combines with pleasant flavor to create a surprisingly drinkable beer. This is very good.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-orange color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma was caramel, nut, yeast and light notes of berry and pecan. The flavor was tart sour cherries, caramel, pecan, cream and yeast. The finish was short with tart berries prominent. Medium body. Interesting.
