UPDATED: OCT 21, 2021 25 oz bottle 10/20/21 (Gift Pack at New Glarus) 42° in Tulip. Pours a deep ruby with a small covering for a head. Aroma of fruit punch. Taste of apple, cranberry and cherry. This light bodied brew has a bunch of flavors but not much sourness but still rocks. hauxe (3186) - Butzbach, GERMANY - SEP 6, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2021 Bottle courtesy of Virby44. Auburn with a frothy head of modest duration. The cherries carry the aroma, very intense, although the apple cider is just underneath. Taste is apple juice sweet with a long, cranberry tartness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Not exactly refreshing, anything so cherry infused verges easily into medicinal for my taste. A touch too sweet. Addictive though. BeerdedDave (3984) - Beckley, West Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2021 reddish-brown color; nice cranberry, cherry aroma; a bit sweet up front, tarter in the finish; a fantastic blend of cranberry and cherry with hints of apple; light bodied; nice dry finish Bacchus66 (2142) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 14, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2019 12oz bottle at home, trade from MN. Attractive deep ruby pour with a thin, dissipating white head. Intense berry and apple aromas and flavors, with more tart berry fruit and earth coming after. Light carb and body. Lip-smacking, mouth-watering fruited finish. So good. tfontana (4065) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 10, 2019
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2019 Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Fresh Thyme, Milwaukee. Appearance is clear ruby red with slight orange tint, decent lazy sparkle, ephemeral fizzy cap of beige head and no lacing. Aroma is alternating sweet cherry and tart fruit. Taste is strong dominant sweet cherry over moderately strong tart fruit. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with thin texture, soft-to-average carbonation and finish as taste that makes the sides of my mouth pucker! Overall, nothing 'beery' except the fruit but aromas/flavors are strong and the brewer manages to keep a sweet beer from being too sweet or a tart beer from being too sour by balancing them out. No easy feat. Props.

Color is dark brown and a deep amber when held up to the light, with a light tan head. It’s a bit hazy. Little messy lacing.
Aroma is amazing. So fruity- rich cherries overwhelm with a bit of apple cider.
Flavor is sweet, fruity, with just a slight tartness. The cherry and apple are so strong and delicious. Not fake and sugary.
750ml bottle. Not sure of a date, but the code says 20320 212372B (or 26326... hard to see) with black wax. It’s at least 1 year old because I’ve saved it myself since December 2017. balloonbuffoon (1125) - - NOV 29, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2018 12floz bottle, no date found, $3 single, poured into a large stem glass, where it appears a tawny red-brown color with head that quickly subsides. Smells something like fruit punch, and when tasted apple and cherry flavors duel for supremacy. Apple wins out in the end as it leaves a greater impression. This is a sweet beer that one can have as dessert. pkbites (1387) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2018
Meh. Lovely color and nice fruity aroma. But there is too much sweetness to this. There is a lot going on with cranberries, raspberries, apple and a hint of cinnamon. I had a 14 ouncer on tap @ 3 Cellars in Franklin, Wisconsin. That's much too much of this and it got sickening tasting real fast. Only good in small doses. seymour (2587) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 25, 2018
Tasted at GABF 2018 in a sampler glass, it poured a clear purplish red colour with white foam. Excellent light-bodied, highly attenuated base beer, crisp and grainy, such that the residual sweetness is very natural fruit flavoured. Tart but not quite sour. One of the best fruit beers I've had, and a great harmonious blend of fruit it was. Delicious. Aurelius (6744) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2018
BIg, fruity, mellow cidery, sweet aroma. Sweet, tart, cherryish, lively fruit flavor. Longneck rosy brown pour (hard to tell, it's in a red Solo cup). Sour aftertaste is just a little clingy. Nice mouth. Thanks to Barbara for bringing this back from Milwaukee!
