Pours a deep ruby red with a rather pretty strawberry colored head. Very well carbonated.

Smells incredible. Lush cherries that smell like you dove in a pool of them.

Floored instantly. Delicious in every way. Not so much a beer but like drinking a liquified, fermented cherry.

Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshingly carbonated to help cut down on the sweetness.

Overall this is perfect.

FANTASTIC! The aroma is full of ripe, sweet cherries with a hint of malt. The flavor is absolutely full of cherry flavor perfectly balanced with a wonderful malt/wheat backbone that makes it taste like a fresh cherry pie, including subtle spices that remind you of cinnamon and sugar sprinkled on top. One of my favorite beers!

(750ml bottle courtesy of Alpar!). Pours hazy red juice color with minimal head. Aroma of maraschino cherries. Taste is sweet. Medium bodied with a luscious, ripe fruit finish. Man, this is a delicious beer...Thanks for sending this out Alex. Awesome stuff! This is the holy grail of fruit beers.
