A - Pours a bright ruby red, finger of head with solid retention and some sporadic lacing.

S - Loads of cherries, maraschino cherries, cherry blasters, candied cherries... Yup, cherries.

T - Much like the nose, heavy dose of cherries, but they're not artificial or overpowering in a bad way. Reminiscent of a sweet cider with a bready/malty finish. The oak aging is subdued, but still comes through. Finish brings with it the hints of oak, brown sugar, and toasted bread... Obviously sweet cherries as well.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and a little stickiness.

O - This stuff is like candy, loads of flavour and absolutely delicious. I wish I grabbed more of this stuff, because it really is phenomenal.

I am judging this based on style, not preference over other great beers.

A- Dark framboise in color, medium lacing with small thin pool of head in the middle of the glass. This brew is really murky, dank looking

S- Big big cherry upfront, light flavored malt with a big presence. Cherries and cherries

T- So much fresh sweet cherry; if only Cherry Rye was made with this process of cherry integration. Just a bit of sour; but this screams fruit beer; and a damn good one at that!!

M- Very smooth and creamy. I need to pay more attention to NG fruit beers. Just the right amount of carb/if not borderline not enough.

O- Judging on style; this is almost perfect thus my rating. Sure I would take other beers before this, but this is top notch fruit beers. Thanks Aaron!!!
