Very strong aroma of cherries, more sweet than sour, with some marzipan as well. Appears a cloudy red-brown with no head. Flavor is spicy cherry cinammon goodness; starting with a tangy sweetness, the middle dominated by fresh cherry flavor, and finishing with a cinammon zing and trailing sour cherries. Palate is thick and bubbly. Overall, this is just a wonderful beer, especially during the fall holidays, and it is even greater than the sum of its parts. My deepest thanks go to joeybgood for this fine brew. thejoeshow (232) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUN 6, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2008 WOW! If you have the fortune to be able to get your hand on this beer, GET IT! This is one of the best liquids I have ever drank. It pours a redish brown color with a slight hint of carbonation. It has the aroma of sweet fresh cherries. Wonderful. The flavor...you guessed it cherries. It literally tastes like you have fresh cherries in your mouth. outstanding! Overall, this is tops in my book! Worth seeking out if you haven’t had it! fuyajo (229) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Pours red, almost no head. Smells lilke cherries. Taste is tart cherries, yet still sweet. Finish is great -- slightly sweet to a mild, lasting bitterness; almost more of a sour (but good sour) flavor. What a treat! I should ad this: I don’t usually like fruit in my beer. However, this drink has singlehandedly made me unable to make this claim any more. civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - AUG 11, 2004
Pours a deep red with a small head round the edge. Aroma is of fresh cherries and it tastes almost like fresh cherry pie, especially as it warms. Like a sweet kriek. Smooth, and filling. toncatcher (228) - Santee - SAN DIEGO, California, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Bottle. Pours a cloudy redish color with a slightly pinkish head. Aroma of sour cherries and more sour cherries. Flavor is not as sour as I would have thought by the aroma. Taste like sweet and slightly sour cherries. Delicious and very easy to drink.

Bottle brought in by a customer, sampled at work. Wow!!! Best fruit beer I have ever had. This very cherry beer has a wonderful bouquet that lets you know exactly what you have in store for you.
Cherry taste that stays with you for quite a while, so so smooth and even creamy with a great finish that never becomes cloying. The biggest reason I give this such a high score is the finish. It never even hints at that "rotten" sweetness that seems to pervade many of the lesser fruit beers.
If you refuse to even give fruit beers a try, try this one anyway. Even if its just for the rating, I don’t think you’ll find a better one to try! o_Merlin_o (225) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 22, 2012
A near perfect beer. Wonderful cherry and apricot aroma, topped off with a creamy off-white head. Absolutely delightful acidic taste all over the tongue, especially on the sides. Pleasant aftertaste. I say ’near perfect’ because of its high carbonation. Expect lots of burps when drinking this awesome brew. sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - SEP 30, 2010
This one gets a 100% All across the board. On tap at the oktoberfest celebration at the brewery. Tested a sampler and brought back 2 bottles. The smell is of a fresh, cherry field farm. Its hard to tell the grains that were used for this. A pound of cherries are used in each bottle. The appearance is a dark ruby color. Very sweet and tastes like cherry juice. Highly carbonated and heavy lace built up around the edges. A great after dinner drink or to share with your girlfriend in celebration. We bought the gift set and can’t wait to try out our new champagne glasses from the brewery.. Dansting (222) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 28, 2008
Bottle. Poured a cloudy reddish-purple color with a light white head. No lacing. Aroma is very strong with a nice sour cherriness to it. Mouthfeel is excellent as it is very smooth. Flavor is a nice tart cherry taste with a nice sour aftertaste. An excellent beer. emeinz (220) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2011
