On tap at the Bier Abbey in Schenectady, NY.

Pours limp and red. Even before the glass is raised I can already smell a very tart, wonderfully smooth cherry aroma that's darn near New Glarus Belgian Red-level of crisp juiciness. Only the cherries here play up against nodes that are much more beerish than the Fruit Roll-Up flavors of NG's brew. The effect is sublime.

Tastes not *quite* as cherryish as it smells, but more varied. Dry up front, moving into gushing, moist cherry nodes and ending in a more traditional oud bruin bitter-tart brownness. Cherries linger far behind. Wonderful.

I got no idea why this isn't more revered.

$5.19 for an 11.2oz bottle @ Sicilianos. 8.5% ABV. Pours out to a brilliantly clear deep garnet, forming a large expanding light tan head with superior retention and solid sheets of lacing owing in part to it's brisk carbonation, ~3.5 carbs or so. The nose is immediately vinous, popping with tart red cherries. No real funk to speak of, just some faint dusty basement. The mouthfeel explodes on the tongue, almost like champagne, with a bright cherry acidity that is quite pleasant and a medium body. The taste is exceptional...loads of unadulterated fresh cherry juice, a little dark fruit in the middle, lightly sweet, with a very mild bitterness that is only perceptible in the aftertaste. Slightly earthy finish. This stuff goes down like candy. No perceptible off flavors or aromas. If you're a Brett lover, there is none here. The 8.5% is expertly hidden.

This is a great beer. I can see why it's so expensive because it requires a ton of fruit to make. Goes down way to easy. Liquid candy. I could easily throw 3 of these back no problem. Highly recommended.

Very easy to drink at 8%. I downed all four bottles I bought.
The cherry was not overwhelmingly strong nor to weak which I appreciate.
I notice from some of the reviews here some folk wished it to be sour but if you read the style of beer it can go from sour to not at all and anywhere in between.
This beer was recommended to me by where I buy my beer sometimes after he saw I bought a 4 pack of Petrus's Goulden Tripel. I shall return there to thank him.
