Picked up a few of these for $8.99 off the shelf - what a deal.
Ruby red pour with a head that vanishes quickly. Steady carbonation bubbles, and pretty much crystal clear.
The aroma is delicious. Apples and sweet fruit. No sour notes, or hints of sourness.
This beer is absolutely wonderful. First notes I get with each drink are from the apples, then it fades into the cranberries and cherries. Some tartness, not sour. Very, very drinkable. It tastes very much like Belgian Red with some Apple Ale (like others have said as well). I love the apple notes in this.
Very light on the palate, prickly carbonation, super drinkable.
I could drink this all day, and would have no problem slamming a bottle like it was water. Awesome.

Bottle pour at the tasting at la casa de dirtinabottle.
Pours a clear sunny red color, bubbly fizzy head of about one inch fades quickly, small little dots of lacing on the glass.
Incredibly fruity fresh aroma- the fruits all mix well together, but cranberry and cherry are the most notable.
The taste is similarly vibrant. Cranberry, cherry, and apple (again, not as noticeable as the others, probably because of their more tart characters), all smack you across the face, nicely. There is a mild, but very welcome, sour twang at the end of each sip that keeps the sometimes cloying sweetness in check. The beer is quite sweet, unbelievably so, actually, so drinking large amounts isn't easy.
Medium bodied, crisp juicy mouthfeel. Drinkable for the first 4 oz or so, then gets to be a cloying chore, a little bit.
Incredible that this is actually beer- I don't taste any malts or hops, just the giant basket of fruit that went into each bottle.
