750ml bottle into a teku glass. 2013 vintage

Pours a crisp, dark ruby red with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates. The smell is of tart Door county cherries...very big aroma. The taste is just absolutely incredible. It starts out with a sharp tartness that quickly dissipates and turns into a sweet cherry juice flavor and then ends with this lingering dryness that leaves the taste in your mouth for awhile. im blown away at this beer. medium bodied, medium carbonation.

overall the best fruit beer in the world.

A: Pours a ruby/brown color with a one finger white head. The head dissipates to a ring with soapy lacing.
S: Big cherry fills up the nose, almost cough syrup but not as harsh. Light malt at the back end.
T: Again, lots of cherry. I am glad it doesn't taste like cough syrup. Very sweet and a little sour pucker. The cherry leaves the palate almost as quickly as it enters, keeps me wanting more.
M: Light on the palate. Medium carbonation.
O: This brewery knows how to make fruit beers. This one doesn't dissipoint.
