Served from a 750 ml bottle into a goblet.

A - Medium brown with a serious red tint to the color. Beer is fairly opaque, but very clear when held up to light. Head is off-white; initially thick and fades to faint wisps with a ring around the glass. Good lacing.

S - Strong, sweet candied cherry or cough syrup aroma drowns out everything else, yet somehow it still smells tempting.

T - Flavors hit with a big burst of candied cherry. Light nutty malt in the background. No hops or obvious yeast notes. Sweet throughout. Very clean, but not a lot of depth of flavors.

M - Medium body. Smooth, creamy carbonation. Light bitterness. A little alcohol burn helps keep it from being cloyingly sweet. Excellent.

O - Based on the overpowering aroma and flavor from the cherries, I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did. The parts come together very well. Worth trying, for sure.

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.

MEDIUM SOUR.

Very sweet beer, almost like a hard cherry root beer. It has a nice deep ruby red color, a nice carbonation that creates small bubbles and leaves some foam. It will do as a great dessert beer due to the sweetness. I was not able to finish the bottle myself. If I had thought of it as a soda, I may have finished it, but under the stigma of a sweet beer, I had a hard time emptying the bottle.
