3.18/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured into a Petrus glass on 5/20/13

Deep ruby color with a hint of rustic brown and a one finger dirty rose colored head to top it off. The foam thins quickly and leaves some stringy lace.

The aroma is sweet and heavy like cherry concentrate with suggestions of other red fruits along the lines of cranberry and maybe pomegranate. It smells deeply sugary and in doing so essentially makes the aromas of the base beer indistinguishable.

A short-lived tartness takes hold with the first sip but the prominent cherry flavor soon turns to semi-sweetness (thankfully not so sugary as the aroma seems). The cherry is tempered by a fruit cake, nutty and earthy backing that dries out the sugars. A faint hint of alcohol creeps in every so often.

The sugar continues to translate in the feel acting as a thick glue between the medium body and patient carbonation.

The aroma had me nervous but this turned out well enough in the end. I'm glad I opted for the small bottle though.

3.75/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

A: Cherry red and filtered on first pour, tons of fine bubbled carbonation and a 4 finger head of raspberry latte or beige with a pinkish tinge.

S: Cherries off the bat, some sour acidic qualities, sour cherry Jolly Ranchers candies. Some dark brown malty qualities.

T: Sweet and cherries, a sort of aspartame bitterness. A burn of alcohol in the throat.

M: Medium thick and syrupy with medium low carbonation. A sort of tart and sweet coating stays on the tongue.

O: Certainly not the best example of this style, it should be known that it is full of cherry in the smell and taste. Goudenband, La Folie, and Monk’s Café’s versions for example are neither cherry nor sweet forward as this is. Still its nice to try the style, and it makes me realize the boundaries of the style extends further than I’d realized. Bought at Bruisin Ales in Asheville.
