Poured a nice deep reddish brown, not much head but very bubbly. Smells heavy of cherries, very good smell. Taste is just as heavy with the cherries. Nice light, tastes more like juice than beer but it's definitely a nice taste. Very flavorful and a nice change of pace, but I probably can't drink more than a glass at a time.

Gotta give a shout-out to thefatkid13 for the trade on this one. Kept the bottle in my fridge from last May until now, though I don't really know why I didn't have it sooner.
Poured from the 750ml bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet. Body is a strange, opaque pink-brown hybrid with just a few wisps of creamy white head. Very sweet aroma of cherries, cherries, and more cherries, with maybe some confectioner's sugar mixed in. Palate is again thoroughly dominated by sweet cherries - this almost comes across like a soda rather than a beer. A mild hoppy bitterness emerges on the finish, but there is still plenty of residual sweetness. Body is smooth and creamy, which does provide a little bit of an indication that this isn't in fact soda. A bit too sweet for me to drink in large quantities, but still a very unique and enjoyable brew.

Figured it was about time to review this one.

I love the color of this one, it pours out a sexy cherry (really!!) with hints of mahogany around the edges. There is a medium amount of head on this one as it doesn't leave much lacing either. A very powerful tart cherry character is present. Taste is pretty much the same; a lot of tart cherries with a slightly sweet finish. This bottle had a very bitter aftertaste, which I don't recall from previous batches. Maybe my palate was off. There's a lot of carbonation to this and it's kind of similar to champagne in mouthfeel. I enjoy the hell out of this one and look forward to drinking plenty of this in the upcoming summer months!

Pours a rusty looking murky red with a nice pink head that takes its time. Smells mildly tark, the cherries come out to play along with some sweetness. Taste is mostly the sweet cherries, mildly tart with a smooth finish. Medium in the mouth, flat on the finish and a sipping fruit beer too enjoy.

poured from 25oz bottle into flute glass

A-nice light red color with about a 2 finger head that recedes quickly

S-lots of cherry smell and a little oak coming through

T-cherry is about all I get for the flavors in this one not really any oak

M-lots of carbonation maybe a little too much

O-with the carbonation in this it tastes pretty much like cherry soda, not bad but a little too sweet and fizzy for me
