A-Poured into a couple pint glasses. Ruby red body with a pink two finger head. Lots of carbonation

S-Lots of candied sugar and sweet cherries and what I am going to call magic dust.

T-Sweet cherry juice dominates with a little yeast presence in the background. Just delicious.

M-A little tart with puckering carbonation.

O-Probably the best fruit beer out there. Worth seeking out and is perfect for warm weather.

Served on tap in a flute at the brewery on 4/28/12

A - A beautiful mostly clear brilliant pinkish-cherry red with 1 finger light cherry head with good retention and moderate lacing.

S - The soul of a cherry, these fruit are so abundant it is intoxicating, nice oak, and fruity soda, bubble gum notes.

T - A very sweet cherry taste hits you so smooth you'll be charmed immediately followed by a bit of tartness and delicate oak notes and just a hint of hop floral aroma.

M - Moderate body, highly carbonated, effervescent.

O - So complex and satisfying and easily among the most drinkable fruit beer. Pairs well with a nice creamy Wisconsin cheese.
