look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Vigorous pour builds a pretty head that quickly dissipates. Clear amber beer with a slightly pink head.

On the nose, solidly honey and cherries. Nothing else.

Tastes beautiful, partly because it nails a complex natural Michigan tart cherry flavor, but also mainly because of the progression of the flavors, from dry cherry to sweet and honeyed to sour and slightly, pleasantly vinegary. The progression works, especially at a cold to cool temperature, to build to sweet but just before becoming too sweet it quickly turn sour to clean the palate. Perhaps it is - slightly - too sweet at room temperature.

Nice mouthfeel for a beer between a desert beer and a quaffable fruit beer.

Highly drinkable for over 6 percent and as fruity as this is.

Not sure why this beer is rated B. I think this is a very good fruit beer.

Cerise pours a reddish color with a small pink lacy head. The smell has a dry malty undertone, like a pils, with strong sweet tarty cherry aroma. The taste has a mixture of sweet and, with a mellow cherry flavor ontop of a dry pilsner like flavor. Very easy to drink, the fruit isnt over powering, but present. Overall a very nice fruit beer, blended well and great in the summer.

A. Pours a beautiful cherry red with a very thin bright white head that dissipates almost immediately without any residual lacing.
S. Light malt background with some cinnamon and some tart cherry.
T. Spicy upfront (cinnamon) with acidic cherries as you swallow. The cherry becomes more evident as you continue drinking - it develops into a cherry tart flavor.
M. Wonderful. Thick body with a light level of carbonation.
D. This is a delicious brew. My wife gave it two thumbs up.
