On tap at the brewery on 10/1/09. Color is a hazy ruby with a small tight head. Aroma of cherry and yeast. Medium body that goes down with a rich feel. Flavor is just amazing, its like drinking a slice of cherry pie with a yeasty crust flavor and big bold cherry taste. After taste is tart almost sour. Overall this is one of the best cherry brews I have ever had. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Huge thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this growler of a beer I have heard a lot about.
The beer pours an electric, bright red color with a few white bubbles, but no real head to speak of. The aroma is awesome. I get a lot of syrupy cherry notes in the aroma, as well as a little bit of cinnamon. The flavor tastes almost exactly like cherry pie. I get a ton of sweet, syrupy cherries as well as some bready malt, vanilla and cinnamon notes. The fruit flavor in the beer is amazingly fresh tasting. Medium, syrupy mouthfeel and low carbonation. An outstanding fruit beer. thirdeye11 (6162) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2011
(Draught at GABF) cloudy ruby with soapy tan bubbles. Nose smells EXACTLY like cherry pie, filling and all, crust, yeasty, bready, huge cherry pie filling aromas. The buzz on this beer started to build when people got word that the beer geeks loved it and the table was swarmed. Ttaste of very tart cherry pie filling, extremely flavorful and syrupy in a good way. Excellent flavor retention on the palate, perhaps a bit TOO sweet. A great dessert beer. One of the few fruit beers I’ve ever had that gives New Glarus a run for its money. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2011
sample at GABF on 9/20/11. pink pour with a small off white head. big cherry pie nose - like smelling a freshly baked cherry pie. sweet body full of cherry pie - lightly tart. dry sweet finish filled with more cherries.

Wow, this beer totally blew me away. I realize I probably suffered from so much similar beer and this being so distinct, but damn it was amazing. GABF 2011. Pours a robust red color with a small white head. The aroma is overpowering cherry pie with cinnamon. The flavor is perfection for this style; sweet and tart cherries, lots of spices and finishes quite tart. 100% awesome cherry pie. Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
GABF 2010. Pours a deep reddish purple violet with thinning fizzy head. Aroma is big cherry juice, cherry pit, fresh cherry puree that you get in a can, jammy, with some pie crust and graham cracker. Flavor is more cherry than the NG belg red- pure straight up slightly tart cherry juice and very concentrated flavors along with the bitter sweetness- and tart finish with some toast, graham, nuts, biscuit and a smooth finish. nice stuff, although not something I could drink too much off. Good after dinner beer.
