Cobra (1100) - - JUN 3, 2008
750 ml. champagne style bottle. Corked and caged. 11/2007 on cork. Loud pop when released. Poured out a deep cherry red color, with a thin brownish head. Decent carbonation, thick mouthfeel. Aromas are of cherry liqueur, cherry pie, cherry Kool-Aid. Flavors are cherry pie, tart, sour, sweet and delicious. No alcohol in aromas or flavors. Dangerously drinkable. Top notch beer overall.

(bottle) Aroma and flavor are distinctly cherry. Elevated alcohol is fairly well hidden. Smooth palate.

Bozo_skeleton (1099) - Grenoble, FRANCE - OCT 16, 2014
Une robe rouge rubis comme du vin, une carbo tres faible pas de collet, Aromes uniquement porte sur la liqueure de cerise. Assez ronde, a nouveau la dominante cerise ecrase tout. Trop de sucre

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Pours a light rad cherry with no head. Aroma is strong sour cherry, yeasty and a bit cheesy. Flavor is cherry thats moderately sweet and fairly limited sour, some yeast and dried fruits. Finishes slightly astringent and a nice sour chery. Medium body, light carbonation.

phfyysik (1095) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 10, 2016
Pours dark red with quickly going pink head. Nose is cherry, strawberry, sweets, a bit sourness. Mouth follows mostly. Some grapefruit side joins. After reveals alcohol - it takes your throat warm and brings more up cherry bitterness. Good one!

Holy crap, this is the mother lode of beers. 8% abv , rich, velvety, layered. Outstanding aroma of sour cherry--is this a vishnya beer or just chereshnya with souring yeast?--its appearance is a shimmering miasma of ruby and onyx. Oh and did I mention it tastes freakin outstanding? -0.2 for perhaps a bit more complexity, and for giving me (and other brewers) something to aspire to. On the TDL--this against Lindemans Kriek. (riverside, high bridge, hunterdon; $7.99ish ++)

wombat23 (1089) - Texas, USA - SEP 19, 2016
Draft at Kulminator, Antwerp. 2013 version. Pours reddish-brown with a pink head. Aroma and taste of sour cherries. Finish is sweet and warm with mild bitterness. Enjoyed this more than I thought I would.

vikingguy (1088) - Carver, Minnesota, USA - JUN 10, 2011
Blood red with a pink head. Big cherry aroma. Big cherry taste as well. This is smooth, malty and sweet. Not a lot of tartness, but enough to make it so the sweet cherry flavor is not cloying. Very natural flavor. Just the slightest amount of bittering hops at the tail end. Lively carbonation. I love cheery beers and this is one of the best Ive had. The New Glarus may be the only one better. Cant believe this is 8% ABV, cant detect a bit of it on the palate. If you like cherry ales, this is a fantastic treat.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottled. Poured ruby in color with a white head. Aroma was big cherry like cherry nibs or ludeman’s cough drops. Flavor was sweet cherry nibs. Very sweet finish with a slight tinge of sourness. A sweet cherry flavor beer sums this one up well.
