If you ever tried domestic sour cherry liqueur, this is what beer taste like, and smells also. Sharp,a bit sweet, refreshing and strong. Unlike liqueur, not sticky, and feeling on tongue last shorter. Very good after desserts, especially cakes and pies. Besides cherries, slight amount of wood, pine and earth can be felt.

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Smell: lots of cherries dark, licorice, a hint of wood.

Tastes: Sweet but not as sweet as lambic, medium carbonation, tart finish, medium density not too watery not too sticky.

Looks: dark red with spots of brown, head becomes a thin layer

Personality: refreshing, you cannot tell the 8%. It’s a sneaky bastard. Get up and you will feel drunk.

Pour: Start pouring low, tilted glass. Finish pouring high to get a reasonable head, about 2 inches. Although the head becomes a thin layer on top and a little clings on the sides. It tastes better at the recommended serving temperature about 40F

Food pair: Drink as a dessert with vanilla ice cream or drink as aperitif. Drinking it will make you hungry.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Duvel glass. Purchased in Smithfield, RI.

A - pours a dark maroon, cloudy body with a light maroon 2 finger head that reduces to a ring of foam.

S - tons of sweet cherries, tart berries, grapes. Cherries really dominate.

T- upfront it's pretty sweet with cherry juice and tart berries on the tongue. The finish has a slightly drying, astringent rindy character.

M- medium body , medium- low carbonation. Juicy

I'm a sucker for a cherry beer and this is nothing more than a cherry bomb. One- dimensional but delicious. Would buy again.
