3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slight cherry hint on the nose. Lacing fades very fast leaving a very slight head. Color is golden brown with a slight red hue. Cherry pit on the nose. Not a whole lot as far as palate goes. Finishes smooth but fades fast. Not my favorite, but definitely worth a try.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2016 On tap at Albertsons. As much as I liked the raspberry edition, I like this one even more. Perhaps the barrel aging adds some nuances, but overall perception is good, no sign of the 10%+ ABV. Deep amber pour with faintest of heads. Mild fruity nose, more pit fruit elements in the taste, hints of a Belgian dubbel as well. Complex, refreshing, tasty...waiting for the kick.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Formidable cherry aroma, dark fruit, and yeasty esters. Pours light brown body with pinkish hue. Thin white head with zero sustainability. Tart, somewhat acidic, taste of cranberry and cherry with a clove-like spiciness. Dry, semi-sweet finish with gentle wood flavor and some wine characteristics.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not as cherry centric as I was hoping for. Some barrel and wine come through, as does too much strength and sweetness, as with the other fruited brainless beers. Nice enough drink, but they cost too much for this level of quality.
