750 ml bottle shared with the wife (had this many times but never rated). Pours a clear dark reddish amber color with a medium sized off white head that hangs around. The aroma has an abundance of sweet and lightly tart fruit, cherry, apples, berries and sweet malts. The flavor has more of the same, cherries, some apple, cranberries, some skins, actually very similar to Belgian Red with less sweetness and just a touch of bitterness and fruit skins, very solid. jandd1983 (4604) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Sampled at the SCCCT event at Friendship Brewery. It poured a copper / red color with an off-white head. The aroma was of cherries, apples and some nuttiness. The taste was similar to the aroma with more cherries, apples and some slight sourness from the cranberries. Mighty tasty. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Poured into a snifter.
3.25 A: Clear cherry plum color. One finger of beige fizzy head that falls pretty quickly and leaves no lacing.
5.0 S: My goodness. Actually, holy shit. The fruits in this are incredible. All of them come through supremely strong. I can’t decide whether the apple, cranberry, or cherry is most potent. It’s like a cider mixed with a cherry wine and cranberry sauce except that they don’t suffer from dilution. This might even smell better than it’s big sisters.
4.75 T: Like the nose, the fruit trio is incredible in the taste. Equal strength among them all. Powerful and delicious. Any semblance of the base beer is covered by the fruits. Just so damn good.
4.5 M: Medium body. Good spritzy moderate carbonation. This doesn’t have the dense syrupy mouthfeel that the fruit twins have. Rather, this is more crisp and refreshing. Still very good.
5.0 D: Love it. I could drink a bottle everyday for a good month if I had the money and the beer.

Bottle shared by Damian and Lona. Pours a slightly reddish amber with pinkish off white head. Aroma and taste are amazing. Nice mixture of fruit with perfect carbonation. Slipstream (2702) - USA - FEB 7, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2016 Thanks to my cousin! Magical fruity perfume aroma. Rich compote taste - apples, berries, humid August days. It comes a little close to fruit soda in spots but it’s still magnificent. Sip it slowly alongside a superb fruit tart.

25oz bottle. No bottle/code date. Appearance: Deep ruby red/brown with a pinkish white foam cap and nice lacing.
Aroma: Tart apple and cranberry most prominent, along with some cherry.
Taste: Cherry and apple sweetness upfront, blending into cranberry with a distinct tartness.
Mouthfeel: Medium body with a light carbonation.
Finish: Dry and tart, with lingering cranberry.
Overall: World class fruit beer. Beautiful blend of the Apple, cranberry and cherry for complexity, with a light tartness from the fermentation to contrast the fruit sweetness. A perfect desert beer. gregwilsonstl (2661) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 8, 2016
Lots of cherry. Somewhat sticky. Some oak. Quite tart. Fruity. Tasted at chris bottle share. brkr521 (7) - - DEC 29, 2015 does not count
Creamy foam head. An amber red color. Cherry aroma. Sweet initial cherry taste with finishing notes of apples and cranberries that leaves a wonderful sweet and sour finish. thepatrickman (1502) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2015
A perfect reminder of how big the world of beer can be. This is everything that isn’t hot in beer right now -- essentially no hop presence, low alcohol, sweet and fruity. And yet it’s well made and tastes complex and intriguing, not at all saccharine or artificial. Served for dessert at Thanksgiving, and everyone from the beer geek nephews to the Bud Light aunts thought it was spectacular. Itzjerm (3119) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - DEC 12, 2015
Wow. This is a beer?
Fruit Apple candy without the stick. Very mild beer flavor on the end. Nice head that fades quick. Ruby red clear. Aroma is apple and red fruits. The ultimate non beer drinker beer.
