Pours an amber red, beautifully clear in color. Almost no head. Aroma is similar to the perfect cherry pie, whipped cream, crispy crust and all. Slightly musky, but incredibly sweet. Taste blossoms in your mouth like the sweetest of desserts, tart and perfect. I could drink this for days. Thanks skaughty! Baumgartner (122) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle poured to champagne flutes. Very heavy aroma of cherries just from popping crown cap. Light flower, perfume aroma also. Very small, creamy head with good lacing. The brew is murky red with a brown mixed in. Much darker than expected. Very sweet initial flavor a ever so slight hop bitter. Medium bodied with creamy, wet texture. Lively carbonation on the sides of the tounge. Very strong cherry finish. This brew just screams CHERRY the entire bottle through. Wonderful drink.

Bottle. Pours a dark ruby red with almost no head. A little bit fizzy, but not like pop or champagne. Definite aroma of cherries. Great cherry flavor and mouth feel. Overall a great brew, would recommend to anyone, even if they’re not a "beer person". Good for beer-sissy’s and girlfriends. tekhna (118) - California, USA - JUN 27, 2009
Cherries and a whole lot more cherries! Special trip through superior WI after breaking my foot to pick it up. I don’t pick up much of the oak, but this is a great beer. Even if I don’t care for fruit beers. Usually taste fake. This has more of a taste of cherry butter rather than a cherry itself.

Pours a strawberry/ maraschino cherry red with a frothy white head with some awesome champagne like bubbles. Smells like bubbalicious gum, cherry syrup, and cake batter. Tastes like a cherry slurpee and heaven. I love this beer. Thanks to Dasilky1 for sharing this bottle and to arjoseph for introducing me to it. Flyer (118) - Hartland, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2007
A wonderful beverage, but I struggle a little to rate this, because it really doesn’t have a lot of beer-like qualities. It takes a pretty vigorous pour to get much of a head. The aroma is a hedonistic cherry immersion, and the flavor is more of the same -- tart, fresh, delicious. Malt and hops are undetectable, as is the alcohol. Actually, even a little bit of an alcohol burn would push it to a higher level for me. Recommended, definitely, but I do have to rate it in the context of a beer. (And while we’re at it -- Leinenkugel’s Berry Weiss gets beaten up in reviews on this site for its lack of beerlike qualities. While it’s certainly not in the class of New Glarus Belgian Red for other reasons, I feel this is an example of the anti-big brewer bias that sometimes rears its head here.)

Holy cow, this is dessert not beer. Like drinking a slice of cherry pie. The spice is really nice and starts to emerge after that first slam of cherry and sweet, but is just overwhelmed. Touch of cola. Hint of malt, but again overpowered by sweet cherries. Nice carbonation, beautiful color. Finish dries out a tad and some sour finally gets a chance to show itself. Very enjoyable but way too sweet for my tastes these days. Reminds me a bit of Quelque Chose but not as complex. Afraid the sweetness just makes this one not very drinkable for me.
Thanks to Walt for finally sending this long awaited brew my way. 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.
