12oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass shows a cloudy brownish-red body briefly supporting a fluffy 1in cream colored head and leaving a clean glass behind.

Aroma of tart cherries joins the flavor of sweet cherries for an enjoyable palate adjustment. Some deep darkness in those sweet cherries.

Mouthfeel is a ccrisp, medium-leaning lighter and clings to the mouth.

Overall, better than good.

Poured from a wax-topped bomber into a Dogfish Head tulip. 2016 edition.

L: Clear mahogany red pour with thin fizzy off-white head. Falls fast... modest lacing.

S: Cherry pie... sweet/tart and fruity.

T/F: Follows the nose. Baking cherries... tart and sweet without being too sweet or 'sour'. Gets the salivary glands going. Complex... red wine and plum but mostly cherry juice/pie/candy. Light bodied... leaves the tongue sticky. The finish is more cooking cherry.

O: The best fruit beer I've ever had. Just delicious... the perfect mix of sweet/tart cherry. Now to find more of it....

While this is a phenomenal beer, the sweetness can only be tolerated in small doses. Luckily, it's available in 12 oz bottles now!

Bottle st share. Murky pour, muddy violet color, thin ring of head. Aroma recalls a freshly opened jar of jam. Taste is wonderfully sweet and smooth, superb feel too. Sweet, hint of tartness. Juicy. Excellent.
