much thanks to hezron for sending me this brew.i am very excited to try it.i poured a generous amount into my flute glass to recieve a color that looked alot like an amber ale mixed with a cherry lambic.not much head to speak of at all.the aroma honestly lit my eyes up.it was a lovely mix of cherries,wine,ludens cough drops,and something that i can only describe as the smell of a wine cellar.the taste was nice and complex as well.it was a mix of cherries,cinnamon,apples,carbonation,and maybe some hops???the mouthfeel had lots of bite and was medium in body.this is excellent and very different.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 An interesting beer with a huge fruity nose of cherries, apples and cinnamon. The beer it self is a deep brown-red with an offwhite head. Cherries cherries and cherries, along with the occassional apple-cinnamon, are what this beer offers. I only wish it had more tartness to it. Somewhat one dimensional, unfortunately. But still good.
On the Update, it is liquid Cherry pie and has grown on me a ton... Delicious. hezron (614) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - APR 3, 2005
I’ve had this many times and now I finally get a chance to rate it. It pours a murky reddish color with an off-white, slightly pink, rocky head. Aroma of earthy cherry with some, very little, phenolic touches. Flavor is sweet cherry with a funky sour-tart and dry finish. Full bodied with a dry texture, good carbination. Very good. joeec5 (204) - bayonne, New Jersey, USA - APR 2, 2005
Cloudy brown with small white lace. Aroma is cherries, sour. Taste sweet/tart/sweettart cherries. Ill never turn down a bottle of this. thanks jim sprinkle (114) - Arcadia, Michigan, USA - APR 2, 2005
Love this beer!!! Taste like I’m drinking cherry pie. Low carbonation, but thats fine with this. Nose is nice but could have a little more. In your mouth the HUGE cherry taste explodes in your mouth, a tad sweet then this tartness comes in a cleans it up with long lingering finish.

Poured ruby red with no head, but a thin white resin. Heavily carbonated. Aroma is tart and cherries. Flavor is sweet black cherries with a bit of tartness. It is tough to put into words how well they got the cherry flavor done in this beer. Bubbly on the palate. Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2006 Very fruity and higly carbonated this was my first fruit beer. Very tart but very delicious. Not something I would want to drink a lot of but as an appertif or dessert beer it would be perfect! csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAR 20, 2005
Tasted at the March KC Bier Meisters meeting. Reddish, orangy, cloudy appearance. Aroma is HUGE cherries, sweet and really nice. Flavor is tart cherries, almost jammy, but not at all cloying. Nice, not great mouthfeel. Tasty. meadlover1959 (14) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2005
One of my favorite beers. Big, big cherry taste. When I’m with people who say they don’t like beer, I break out some of the Belgian Red. Have found only a handful of people who did not throughly enjoy this beer. Bigsky66 (148) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 17, 2005
Sweet-candy cherry smell. Sour cherry taste with loads of bubbles and tingly on the tongue. Not a big fan of fruit beers but this one takes the cake. Better than any wine out there. Very sweet with a touch tartness.
