Poured into a New Belgium globe glass.

The beer is a hazy, murky toffee brown color. A cream colored head leaves a nice film with sheets of lacing. The aroma is very alcoholic, but dates, toffee, and a cherry-like note come in. The beer tastes boozy and syrupy at first. Malts laced with cherry tart come in, followed by a coffee grind dryness. A fruity date body hides underneath. The mouthfeel is full. This is a sipper.

Overall, I didn't know what to expect, but this is a nice interesting sipper for a Friday night. Or any night.

Pours a murky burnt autumn orange with a one finger white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles, and the head is short lived but leaves a nice lace trail.

Smells of bread with a cherry compliment to it. A little chocolate smell and alcohol as well too.

Tastes of fermented alcohol infused cherries. I got a slight coffee, chocolate like taste also.

Pretty good mouthfeel, lots of carbonation present. The bitter finish doesn't last too long either.

Overall it's a good beer. Not one of my favorites though because I'm not too much of a cherry fan. All in all, I think New Belgium nailed it with what they were going for, although not for me you have to give it a try!

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Medium brown. Pours a slight, bubbly, brown-white head. Dissipates quickly leaving a tiny smattering of bubbles, and ring around the rim. Spotty lacing.

S: Fermented raspberry and cherry are prominent. A little fresh flora and sourdough.

T: Pungent bready flavor, with some hints of fermented fruit.

M: Syrupy body, pungent, with a dry bitter finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Nice hue, decent head, and fair lacing. Nose is a great combination of sour bread accentuated with fermented fruit. Pungent and bready, accentuated with bitter fermented fruit. Overall, this is a good quaff.
