A really nice cherrybeer. Both sweet and sour, with an amazing aftertaste.

Poured from 750mL corked & caged bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: rich red hue with no haze and a strong effervescence. Head poured a thick finger of fizzy pink foam which dissipated rather quickly. While the head is nothing to speak of, I find the color simply amazing. Great.

Smell: quite tart with a rich malty character underneath. There's definitely a big fruitiness here; cherry and raspberry are to the fore. I'm a big fan!

Taste: richly sweet base with a little bit of toffee and caramel malt character. Tartness, cherry and raspberry build up from there. This is not an overly complex beer, but I love the flavors in it.

Mouthfeel: light body with a big carbonation and a big but evanescent creaminess. I still like it.

Overall: this is simply my kind of beer. It is no secret that I love krieks and cherry beers in general, and this is a damn tasty example of one. Many stars!

Nice clear red with a small head.

The smell starts off with a nice, natural cherry, mild oak in the background.

I like the sour cherry start. Oaky and creamy in the middle. Nice tart finish.

Nice, slightly unique version of the style. Would I drink again? Yup, and I'd probably buy one again being it didn't seem sweetened!

Let me first start by saying the cork claimed best by Sept 2011 and you can see what day it is. No signs of cork rot, leakage, or infection (ring around the top of liquid).

A: Deep ruby red clear color really awesome color and definitely gives up the intensity of the cherry.

S: Very cherry on the nose, tart cherry not sweet.

T: for being almost 3 years beyond its expiration date the taste was pretty strong cherry, you can tell the bottle is old but it's still good. Very tart cherry and acidic but pretty good.

M: easy to drink fairly smooth carbonation was very light and fine abrasive feel like soda.

O: for claiming to be good up to almost 3 years ago I'd say this is probably a good one to try, the cherry is very very strong and tart so if you don't like cherries you won't like this, cherry syrup or concentrate would be accurate for the intensity. I'd love to try one that claims to be within it's exp date.
