3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish gold, with a foamy head. Faint but pleasent aroma of cherries and white wine. Flavor is cherries, as one might expect, and toast. Nicely sweet, with a dryish, spicy finish. Smells better than it tastes, but still a nice brew. Thanks, Secret Santa!

50 bucks......FIFTY BUCKS! What the hell is going on? I don’t see, taste or smell anything in this beer, other then the 11%
hangover. Well, it did make me MAD!
Total joke. Don’t waste your money.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an orange amber color with almost no head, a tiny white lacing that fades almost instantly. Tons of hops floating around, which seems to make this unfiltered. Aroma is a combination of sour cherries, honey and a hint of banana. Taste is much the same as the aroma. Sour cherries,honey,banana and malts are present in the taste. Taste almost like a red wine. For 11% the alcohol is very well masked. Good product by Troegs, although rather on the expensive side.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours ruby red with a small, quickly fading off-white head. The aroma is cherry, banana, clove and a touch of honey. Smells like belguim yeast to me. The flavor is very fruity with lots of spice, totally hides the 11%.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours orange/amber, with a small, white head. Aromas are spices, cherries, and some yeast. Flavors are spice, cherries, fruit, and a bit of honey. Goes down easy for being 11%.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Seasonal, light cherry aroma, sweet, hint of chocalate, moderate malt, medium body, finishes light bitter, alcohol heavy, 50$ per case, we’ve had a few that were slightly skunked. quality control? Nice looking, nice smelling, nice tasting, too expensive to drink regularly, and you can’t get it year-round.
Re-rate. We emailed Troegs about the skunked beers and they are going to replace the entire case for us. Can’t say enough nice things about the company.

Bottle. Okay the color of the picture threw me off. A nice brown/amber color. Smells of bananas. A nice malty flavor with a hint of cherry.

Amber pour with little head. Variety of aromas and thin bodied. I found the after taste not to my liking, but it does linger with you for some time
