A great bottle of beer for early morning summertime pool parties, such as 4th of July or whatnot. Really fits in on a hot summer day.

Pours out a light reddish brown color, almost oud bruin lite. Looks like a flanders and oud bruin blended together at times. The head is beige in color. The aroma is just straight up cherries, all over it. Mild notes of oak and brown sugar.

Taste is not overly sweet, I've had bottles fresh and with age on them, the sweetness does seem to fade with time. The malt base isn't heavy at all there is just a twinge of caramel to it. Keep in mind, this beer is one of those rare non wild fruit beers that does the trick. Not as good as the New Glarus stuff, but this is a good second tier option for when you want cherries without sour, and avoiding the outright sugary type of Lindeman's fruit beers.

Really starting to like the sour cherry beers. This one did not dissapoint. Lots and lots of cherry flavor. Poured a red pink color. Aroma of mild lambic and tart cherry. Sour yeasty cherry flavor.

L: Brilliant deep cherry red with a 2” pink tinted moussey white foam cap with exceptionally fine bubbles.
S: Big cherry aromas with bread and a slight funk aroma off over ripe fruit.
T: Starts like a medium dark cherry bread then the tart comes forward with a moderate bitterness in the background.
F: Very soft in the mouth, medium to medium light body, medium carbonation.
O: Very refreshing with an amazing balance between cherry tartness, hop bitterness and rich malts.
