Cherry bomb. Good carb, healthy foam. Tart, sweet, and fruity. Doesn't even strike me as an ale, more like a carbonated fruit drink. Not that that is a bad thing at all.

Poured this 750 mL, dark green, waxed bottle into a snifter. No date. The body was a murky, red-brown. There was no head only a minimal sizzle upon pouring. No lace.

Smell was cherries! Pure cherry pie filling. Tart and sweet.

Taste was sweeter than anticipated, but never cloying. Flavor was like a liquid cherry turnover. This one is not complex but it is well fashioned. The light bitterness increased as it warmed. This beer is a dessert.

Mouthfeel was medium to full. Mild carbonation, slight slickness. A world class fruit beer.

I poured from a 750 ml bottle into 2 snifters. It pours a fizzy, quava color, with lots of white head and lacing. The smell is pure cherries. At first the cherry flavor is a bit much, and overly sweet. But by the second sip the cherry flavor really comes through making it very refreshing. The beer is highly carbonated, light in body and very wine like. For me this is more of a sipper. The best fruit beer I have ever had, IMO a must try for any BA.

pours up a deep reddened brown color with a decent size white head. the nose is like a red Life Saver candy. and oddly enough, it has a slight aroma of ketchup! the taste is candy sugar and cherries! very delicious! a straight dessert beer!

interested in trying some of this brewery's other concoctions
