Bottle purchased and drank at Joe Bean Coffee Roasters in Rochester, NY.

Pours out a deep dark, almost blood red, but fairly clear. There's a small fizzy head, with no lacing.

Smells like tart but sweet cherries, and not much else. Smells quite strong and fruity.

The taste is slightly more complex, but it's still mostly a cherry bomb. Mostly sweet, with a late tartness, some red wine flavors, and a bit of oak. Every but the cherry flavor is mild here. I wish it was a little bit more sour.

This one is fairly light bodied, with a fruity, juicy mouthfeel, and a low amount of carbonation.

Interesting but not really complex enough as a Belgian red.

Bottle to pint glass

A- pours a murky dark ruby brown color with a small off-white creamy head that leaves some lacing behind

S- tart and fruity cherry aroma up front with some medicinal notes, underlying musty Belgian yeast with some earthy aromas

T- tart cherries are showcased up front with a big fruity sweetness that kicks in med-palate. There's an underlying Belgian yeast character that is earthy and musty, leading to an herbal finish

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth, slightly tart finish

O- very refreshing brew that hides the alcohol brilliantly, big cherry notes take center stage

Sweet cherries...everywhere.

This beer tastes almost liqueur-like to me.

Nose is cherries with a hint of prune juice...seriously. Taste is cherries, with a slight bit of sour on the end.

Very little hint of boozy flavor, considering the ABV on this one.

Good, but I prefer Three Philosophers if I want a hint of cherry. Definitely would stand up/pair well with a rich cheese or Black Forest Cake.

Don't drink it without some assertive tastes to oppose it.
