Dark amber pour at ChurckKey. A whisp of a head. Malty and spiced nose. Not much hint of cherry in the nose or the taste. Nice finish with some floral honey components.

Pours a beautiful ruby amber with a reasonable head and lacing. The nose is of cherries against a slight chocolate coupled with a typical Belgian yeast aroma. It also has hints of sweetness and alcohol. Almost medium body with good carbonation. Nice slick mouthfeel. A superbly balanced beer, with a flavor profile similar to the nose. Tart cherry over a nice sweetness with a chocolate background. For an 11% alcohol brew, this one hides it well - but you get the nice burn all the way through. Crisp finish with a burst of flavor from the carbonation that brings the spice flavor to the forefront. The finish is also where the alcohol becomes more evident as the beer nears room temperature.

tomer (1746) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - DEC 16, 2013
At a tasting, thanks Yoav, no head, quite hazy rusty red colour, aroma of strawberries and raspberries, with a touch of malt in the back, strong jammy flavour with a strong and a bit coarse bitterness, some alcohol coming through. Heavy and unappealing.

Bottle from UDBeernut. Pours amber with nice white head. Aroma is all spice and cherry. Taste is sweet, bready, spicy. Aftertaste sticks around a bit, sweetness lingers.

DSG (6106) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 12, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Yoav. Reddish amber color. Aroma of malt, honey, caramel and some dark fruits. Sweet flavor, caramelly, honey-ish, fruity and slightly spicy, finishes a bit alcoholic. Medium to full-bodied, a bit syrupy.

Excellent! Interesting cherry aroma. Subtle fruit on the palate but Crazy smooth at 11%. This is damn good!

Alpha10 (342) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 4, 2013
2013/12/05 - Pours a ruby-amber colour with a small, off white head that fades quickly and does not lace. Aroma is cherries, dark fruits, spices, yeast and slight chocolate. Taste is cherries, spices, biscuit malts, and booze. Leaves a sweet medicinal aftertaste, almost like cough syrup. Mouthfeel is medium with prickly carbonation. A nice tasting brew, but I find the aftertaste somewhat off putting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I'm not sure what this "beer" is. All I get is a sickly sweet cherry cough syrup. Very slight malt. Almost no head. Couldn't finish half of it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from fresh growler. Clear Red Ruby color with a thin dissipating head. Aroma of faint honey maltiness. Taste is solid malt backbone supported by mild honey and faint cherry notes. Also faint pepperiness from the yeast.
