355ml bottle into a 350ml beer glass.

Poured a ver red, dark brown with a tight frothy red-tinted head. Leaves a fine film down to the last drop. Lots of lacing. Very nice.

Lots and lots of cherry on the nose with a malty nuttiness coming through. Nice.

Extremely smooth and creamy, lots of cherry some malts, low bitterness. Sweet but drying. Perfect for me Lovely!

Absolutely lovely beer - I could drink this all day. I checked the website and apparently this is made with real cherries!

Highly recommended.

The beer is a dark cherry color (very fitting) with a pinkish foamy head and a lot of carbonation. I get a strong sweet smell of cherries but the smell disappears quickly and there is nothing else to it. The beer is not overly sweet but has a great taste of cherries. You get the sweetness and the bitterness of the fruit but the flavor is not overwhelming and finishes nicely.

Dark scarlet red, thin layer of foam, spotty lace.
Smells like cherry cough drops, artificial, nothing fresh picked here.
Taste is pretty sweet, artificial cherry candy flavor, little else beyond that.
Light bodied, ample carbonation, cloyingly sweet. Overall, not something i'd buy, but something beer novices will like, so far as it doesn't "taste like beer". Give me a traditional Oude Kriek anyday.

looks pretty in the glass after the pour.....
aroma is nice- slightly bitter cherries......
taste is alright. a little thin, but flavorful. may be a good thing it's thin, otherwise the attempt to flavor it accordingly might be too harsh.... decent.
overall, aside from being thin, it's pretty darned good!

Sampling right now on 2/6/16. Comes in a single 550ml (18.7 ounce) bottle for $5.99 at Hy-Vee. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a large "ROCK BOTTOM MUG CLUB" handled-glass stein.

Brew pours a hazy reddish-'wine' in color with a good 3+-finger foamy/creamy off-white head. LOTS of ring-like lacing is seen after each sip. Aroma is of LOTS of freshly-picked ripe cherries with some sweet malt. Taste follows the nose and isn't as sweet as it sounds. Slightly tart BUT goes down so easy. Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation. Fantastic brew!

This is a very cool looking beer in a glass. nice foamy head.. Smooth going down. but im a cherry freak. so i think it needs a little more cherry than beer part. But over all if your looking for real cherry and real sweet beer. this is your ticket to good times. Youll love the light red foam head on it. thats a very cool effect.
