Beautiful in the glass. Great color and aroma. Strong cherry flavor - kind of like a lambic but more for the adults. Tasty. MirImage (11) - Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Served: Bottled poured into a Champagne Flute tutal (11) - La Crescent, Minnesota, USA - AUG 2, 2003
Aroma: Sweet and Fruit, cherry pie filling
Appearance: Solid red in color, transparent. Head is a light pink. Looks like a red Champagne.
Taste: Medium to heavy on the sweetness, which isn’t bad in moderation. A bit of a sour fruit taste that hits the back of the tongue.
Palate: Light body with very fizzy carbonation.
Great beer for special occasions. A welcome replacement for Champagne.
The perfect blend of fruit and beer. The tart Wisconsin cherry flavor is very strong. The barley malt is a great compliment to the cherry. This is one of the few fruit beers that I like, let alone rave about. fatpaul (11) - Berlin, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Pours dark, cloudy red. Aroma of cherry pie. Taste of cherry pie, with a little sour. There is a little oak flavor in it. It’s pretty sweet, but not disgustingly so. It is the best cherry beer I’ve ever had and will be purchasing again. RodeaGueuze (11) - - JUL 19, 2016
Pours a deep rich mahogany-like purple. Almost a plum color. The cherry aroma emanates. It tastes like cherries, but with enough tartness to balance some of the sweetness. It is very sweet though. A very good dessert beer, but not sure I’d like this if it opened my night.

Understandable that this beer's won tons of awards. Starts with a slightly sour cherry taste, finishes with a lingering aftertaste with slight hints of chocolate. Bright red in color with near constant bubbling and a strong cherry aroma. Tastes great, looks great - a truly impressive beer. barleycorn1 (10) - Catonsville, Maryland, USA - JAN 22, 2008
not too much in to fruity beers but this one is in another league. from the first whiff i knew i was about to taste something like i’ve never before. kinda reminded me of a jones soda since there was no alcohol presence. well done Punsch416 (10) - Rättvik, SWEDEN - JUL 7, 2011
The beer have an intense red color with a hint of brown in it. Wow, the aroma is almost overwhelming. Its dominated by a big cherry aroma with bitter almond and caramel, red apples, cinnamon and oak lingering in the background. The taste is also dominated by cherries, cinnamon and oak. It has a nutty bitterness to it that that i find most interesting. Finally the beer has a fizzy minerality that i find a bit disturbing. Overall a great fruit beer!

I had to break this out to show a friend what beer with fruit could be. Almost overwheleming, but so good!
