Great treat. Would love to have just a pint with dinner or after work. Wouldn’t make a night of it because I’m sure the hangover would be crippling. Rumor has it that this last batch was cut short due to a lack of cherries produced. Love the quality put into each bottle/pint. Must try if you are in Wisconsin, brought home a 4 pack to Seattle for Christmas.

Super drinkable and very refreshing. Flavor is somewhere in between a cherry beer and a cherry cider. It was more sweet than I was expecting but certainly not in a overpowering way and it has a nice sourness to it as well. This is the type of beer that is certainly to be a crowd pleaser. Nice coloration with the only negative, in my opinion, being the smell which smells a bit like artificial cherry (but don't worry the flavor is superb).

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....
