From the bottle. Pours a nice dark red-brown (pour it when the sun can brighten your glass!) And it has a nice foam on the pour with good lacing. The fruity aroma is fantastic, cherries come thru the most. They all work together, and the cherry flavor starts first with the cranapple taking over. The cranberry makes the finish a bit dry when i want it to be juicy, but overall it is fantastic. wisdomsolo (466) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Had this at a recent tasting. WOW! This was fantastic! Easily one of the top beers of the night. tmoreau (4289) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Shared 25 oz. bottle, and poured to fest goblets showing a hazed, brownish copper color, with a modest, diminishing layer of off white, bubbly head foam, and light spots & strands of lacing. The aroma was expressive fruitiness as grape & cherry, cider-like notes, and candy/cough drop sweetness. Medium+ bodied, with perky effervescence, the taste was rather sweet, with tartness, a hint of grain, and peppery bitterness blended in. Some tanniny astringency, and just a touch of dryness finished it off. Positioned somewhere between a Sour, a Fruit ale, and maybe even a cider. A bit too sweet for my tastes on a regular basis, but the full flavor drew me in this time. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - FEB 9, 2014
i gotta say, im not a fruit beer person, but this one definitely lives up to the hype. Inbreak (5793) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2014

Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is sweet and slightly fresh fruity, sweet cherries, caramel malts, craneberries, soda powder, apple juice, cherry jam. Taste is sweet cherries, caramel malts, fermented apples, craneberry juice, soda powder, sorrel, hints of chili. Light acidity, soft carbonation. Nice enough, feels a little artificial and candy like.
Reddish brown with a nice pale head. Aroma is cherries, blackberry, raspberry. Medium bodied, fruity and sweet on the palate, lingering fruit in the aftertaste. Taste is cherries, blackberries, berry jam. Love this, lots of berries. XaenDovet (1282) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle share. Thanks Jason. Clear rose. Aroma of berries, apples, bubble gum, wood. Taste is tart, sweet. Coats the mouth with sugars. So great. Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Slightly reddish golden, medium carbonation. Strong fruity aroma, cherries and raspberries, slightly medicinal. Slight lactic tartness, slightly sweet, and lots of complex fruit flavors. Extremely flavorful and enjoyable. Great! swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2014
sample at Food Bank bottle share, dark berry colored pour. medium to fuller bodied. very flavorful, jammy, cranberry, cherry, apple. fruit bomb, slightly too sweet for me. markducommun (1095) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Deep red-orange, small head. Tart berry aroma. Fairly sweet initial taste that quickly turns tart, quite complex. Medium body, lively carbonation and acidity, long finish that turns quite dry against the initial sweetness. Awesome, very curious to try it after a few years of cellaring.
