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.

Looks nice, poured a clear but deep ruby red with big, dense pink-tinged head, lots of lace on the glass. Smell: tons of cherry, mildly tart, brown sugar sweetness. Taste: cherry, peaches in brown sugar, mild herbal and oak notes. Seems like a Kriek to me, not much else going on.

Cherry flavored beer, with a complex chocolate after taste. NOt really my cup of tea.
My wife really likes this beer, and would have rated it a 4.5. She liked it so much that we want the the liquor store and bought both the beer and the "glass" ware that went with this beer.
