A big thanks to Dan for this one. 12oz. bottle into Hill Farmstead stemware. Shared with schen9303.

Pours a fluffy 1 finger deep pink colored head with moderate retention. Beer is a clear, dark blood red. No lacing. Stunning color and otherwise par for the style!

Nose is cherry puree and some cherry skin and pits. A light foamy funk is present in the background. Actually a little subdued.

Opens sweet and tart with a noticeable cherry presence. Some stem and skin bitterness in the middle covered by ample sour cherry puree. Ends tart and crisp with a puckering, bone dry finish and fruity aftertaste. Simple and delicious!

Light bodied with ample carbonation. Prickly and aggressive in the mouth and goes down dry and puckering. Bone dry finish with a filmy aftertaste. Solid.

The color on this beer is simply outstanding and the rest of the brew completes the experience nicely. Not fantastically complex but its a fruited berliner so you should know what you're getting in the first place. Really drinkable, refreshing, and definitely worth trying.

From a bottle, pours a dark red, very bright looking with good and active carbonation.

The nose is almost all cherries, medicinal, a little cough drop like, sweetener. The flavor is more tart than the nose lets on, all cherries, vinegar, salt, a little cough medicine. The mouthfeel is pretty good, great carbonation, a little fizzy.

Overall, lots of cherries, but good.

Pour is dark ruby red, clear, with a small amount of dark pink head. Nose is incredibly strong cherry, very fleshy ripe cherry, and hint medicinal. Flavor is a bit more rounded cherry, light brett breaks up the cherry, no medicinal, cherry lingers through the finish. Medium to full body, well carbonated, very creamy feel

341ml bottle poured into tulip 7/10/14, big thanks to Phyl21ca for the bottle

A dark red, almost a deep purple with a bright pink foam, not much for retention or lace but the color is unlike anything I've seen recently

S massive cherry nose, I'm talking ridiculous but straightforward, some dry cracker but for the most part its all cherry

T a hint of lemon but it might just be the tart sourness making me think lemon, a little yeast but really its a cherry bomb full stop

M tart, sour, acidic, and dry, a fair amount of pucker, lighter side of medium, guess what lingers on the finish

O shes lopsided but I like where shes leaning, cherry, cherry, and you guessed it, more cherry

the fruits just so intense I don't know where to begin... so I wont start

Bottle: Poured a deep red color Berliner with a bright pink foamy head with good retention and some light traces of lacing. Aroma of intense cherry notes with light tart notes clearly noticeable. Taste is a perfect balance between some intense cherry notes with almost no residual sugar and tart notes with almost no acidity detectable. Body is full for style with perfect carbonation. So good and I should have bought a ton more of these.

Pours a cranberry read with minimal head and no retention. Overpowering tartness combines with a nice sour. The nice flavours are overpowered by acidity. No aftertaste but leaves a slick coating in the mouth. A bit simple and left me somewhat disappointed.
