Poured a dark ruby red color with small head. Aromas of tart cherry pie filling. Tastes of the same. Tart and sweet tasting as well. Nice balance. As far as fruit beers go, this one has to be one of the best out there. Sammy (12079) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
UPDATED: APR 29, 2004 Sour cherry ale. Facinating pinkish red colour with pink head. Spicy aftertaste similar to good soda. Warms to the mouth. Sweetness only in mid-sip. Pinball (12060) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2012
cloudy dark red, smooth light brownish head. Strong aroma of cherries, sweet marcipan, flavor is cherries, sour citrussy tinge that works extremely well, like an ice cider, quite sweet in general but the citric touch makes it very good. mR_fr0g (11891) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge convention, 24/01/2015. Huge thanks to Leighton. Murky amber / golden coloured pour with a loosw white head. Aroma is sweet cherry cough syrup, marsipan, cherry sweet. Palate is super sticky sweet, moderate carbonation. Flavour is very sweet, cheerry, decent fruit, cherry bakewell. Too sweet for my taste. slowrunner77 (11891) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 13, 2010
after having a couple pretty good cherry beers over the last couple days, i started to become a little worried that i was hitting the top of the shelf for fruity, and that this beer would fall somewhere just above a 4. That wouldn’t have been a disappointment, but there are a lot of 4 beers out there. Well, no worries there. My nostrils were assualted with the aroma of a liquified and carbonated cherry pie, and a good one at that. Holy @#$%! The body was a touch more brick red and less purple, and like I said, the aroma was heavenly. Combine that with just right carbonation and a wonderful fresh cherry flavor with a perfect balance of sweet & tart that I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around, and this was one of the best beers, and easily the best fruit beer I’ve ever had. Thanks to Beerhunter for the trade...while i owe you a debt of gratitude, I now have to think of a way to hit you up for another, and maybe a raspberry tart and/or coffee stout as well :) Still not sure 24 hours later how they made a fruit beer this good!"

Bottled: Dusty red coloured. Light beige head with a red gleam. Aroma is cherries, marzipan, berries and malt. Sweetness, fruit, some sourness and malt in the flaovur. Very good balance in the sweetness. Ends on a dry and light acidic note. Refreshing. Thanks for this gem, CaptainCougar. deyholla (11479) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2009
Bottle. Poured with an amber hue and a thick white head. Aroma was full of cherries, particularly tart, with a bit of alcohol like aroma. The aroma reminded me of cough syrup. Flavor began with sweet cherries but grew in tartness through out. shrubber85 (11322) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2007
Bottle (thanks to Ofortuna). Sour milk, tart cherry aroma with light hint of barnyard. Cloudy red-orange-brown with small head. Sweet and sour cherry with a hint of mulling spices - similar to the sweet fruit lambics. Slightly dry acidic finish. A true work of art - phenomenal fruit beer. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Jesus what a beer. Nice ruby pour, not much of a head. Aroma of cherries and more cherries. Flavor is pure tart cherry fruit roll ups. Damn this one is so delicious. YES! hopscotch (11043) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2011 Ok, I enjoyed another bottle tonight with the wife. We both agree that the aroma is of cherries, butter and brown sugar... quite simply, homemade cherry pie. The flavor is of cherry pie as well; slightly salty crust and all. I had to increase my score. This is just excellent beer. To drink it is like eating homemade cherry pie without the messy cleanup. Best fruit beer I’ve ever tried.
