The brewery confirmed the date on this bottle as March of 1999. From the collection of my late aunt, it was stored on its side in the refrigerator. This is my first time having this beer.

Served in a flute.

A- Hazy red, hints of brown. Off-white head, moderate carbonation.

S- Delicious, complex cherries. Like cherry Kool Aid, but real.

T- Heavy on the cherries here, not a lot on carbonation or much of anything else. Perhaps it has lost something here.

M- Moderately thick, but not syrupy.

O- Definitely nothing bad to say about it. Even with its age, this was my favorite beer I had on Christmas! Especially as it warmed up, I was left wanting more.

Finally got my hands on one of these.

A: Beautiful deep red in color with shades of brown and some haze. Looks like unfiltered cranberry juice. Creamy, bubbly, frothy, slightly off-white head that leaves good lacing and retention.

S: Mix of tart/sour cherries, cream, sugar. Superb.

T: Well, as expected, it's all tart/sour cherry. A fizzy, well-carbonated, cherry beverage.

M: Incredibly refreshing, massive flavor, perfect fizzy finish. Never cloying or too sweet.

O: This is the definition of a fruit beer. Utterly incredible. Could drink at least one a week. Divine stuff.

A - An impressive red color with a finger of white foam after being poured into a tulip.

S - Heavy cherry aroma.

T - As much cherry there was in the smell, there is tenfold that amount in the flavor. A bit on the sweet side here, but flavorful and very drinkable.

M - Not heavy on the mouth, good carbonation.

O - I was quite impressed with this. It seems more like a dessert than a beer, though.
