Bottle generously shared by yourefragile.
Pour yields a reddish-brown colored brew with a short fizzy head that recedes somewhat quickly. The nose carries a strong bit of cherry and cranberry as well as underlying earthiness. Some tartness coming through, as well as fruit skin. Flavor is moderately tart but has far too much underlying sweetness. Body is medium and appropriate, but there’s too much residual sweetness coming through. Pretty nice for a fruit beer, but pales in comparison to Belgian Red and, to a lesser degree, Raspberry Tart.
From bottle, shared by Werckmeister, many thanks. Pours copper with a quickly disappearing off-white head. The aroma starts with cherries followed by raspberries, bubble gum and some tart berries in the back. Medium body with a light to medium carbonation, a medium sourness. The flavor is very fruity with cherries, a lot of apple juice, berries. Finishes with a very light hot chili-like sensation, some tartness, some woody qualities and some noticeable alcohol. Very fruity and rich in flavor - nice!

Copper, hazy body, with a small, creamy, beige head.
Aroma of cherries, sweet berries, red apples, oak, honey, some spices.
Tastes similar, pretty sweet, but also quite rich.
mouthfeel, with a carbonation.
Finishes sweet, a bit wooden, very fruity, with cherries, apples, cranberries, some other berries.
Very nice. Rich, dense and quite complec, with endless amounts of fruits. A bit too sweet for me, but still very interesting stuff. Not much beer character left, this is all about the fruits.
From the tap at the brewery. Very similar to the Rubaeus from Founders Brewery.
Pours hazy brown with a fluffy beige head. Aroma is cherries, berries and some vanilla. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet fruitiness. Finishes with a sight sour. Great stuff. gopherfan99 (1831) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 26, 2017
