look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

750ml bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Ruby/light brown color with a one-finger head
S: Cherries for days. Ripe & fruity, a hint of malt
T: Loaded with cherries. Sweet cherries, sour cherries, bing cherries, ranier cherries, a bit sweet, a bit sour, fruity, flavorful... just wonderful
M: Fairly light-bodied but sweet/sour/fruity, balanced for the taste
O: I will admit I found this bottle after it had spent at least a year in my cellar, shame on me... it was still fantastic. Now I need to find another to try it fresh, I'm sure it will be fantastic

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

750ml bottle poured into a chalice.

A: Cloudy pinkish brown color. Pink tinted head settles after a short time. Lacing is spotty.

S: Intense cherry aromatics. Very fresh smelling. Hints of dark bread and brown cocoa from the malt. Touch of vanilla. Grassy and lightly herbal hops are very hard to detect. Excellent.

T: Cherry juice. Fruity tartness hits its apex on the mid-palate. Hints of bread and cocoa barely come through. Perhaps a hint of grassy hop and ghostly phenol, though this is very clean for something that I assume was brewed with a Belgian yeast. Vanilla, oak are subtle. Sweet juicy finish.

M: On the light side of medium bodied. Lightly scrubbing carbonation. Creamy. Slight astringency.

O: The cherry flavor and aroma are so vibrant and fresh it isn't even funny. Perfect balance of sweet and tart. Infinitely drinkable. Maybe the best fruit beer I've had.
