Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours reddish brown. Nose is sour cherry juice. Taste is slightly tart cherries, cinnamon and malts. bhensonb (15245) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 1, 2008
Bottle conditioned. Aroma of slightly sour cherry over roasted malt. White head that doesn’t last long. A cherry amber or copper color. Smooth, fairly full bodied, with creamy carbonation. There’s a note like a bit of Brett. Or wood. Or cherry pits. It’s got an underlying sweetness after the initial unsweetness. Sweet brown fruits come up. Not at all sticky sweet, just not entirely unsweet. Finally finishes cherry/woody. Leaves a woody bitter ending. It’s pretty dry en fin. Ratman197 (14852) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2007

i have to start by saying this is probably the worst "expensive" beer I’ve ever had. What exactly did i pay $14 for? Pours a redish-amber, similar to Rogue’s Menage Cherry Frog, and like that one ( a cherry flavored belgian) this one is a miss. Not a Kriek, not really tart...a little bitter, sweet semi-fake cherry taste, which does get better as the beer opens up, but somehow it manages to be thin and overcarbonated while also having way too strong an alcohol bite for a beer that’s the Montana legal limit of 8.75%...to the extent that i question if it’s really stronger and the label is just a gimmick. Probably not, but this beer really is a bit of a mess. Definitely won’t buy again for the steep asking price." daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Mahagony pour. Odd cherry syrup or preserve flavor mixed with a typical beer. Flavor is cherry. Not overly sweet and pretty boring to speak of.
