Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass

Appearance: minimal head, high carbonation, red in color, clear

Smell: sweet cherries and fresh fruit

Taste: sweet and tart cherries, light cinnamon. The cherries are layered here so there is excellent depth of flavor.

Mouthfeel: super light body, sweet with a touch of tartness, high carbonation, prickly

Overall:This sets the new bar for me in fruit beers. I love the depth of the cherry flavors. This one is borderline wine-like, but still has some beer flavor. The fruit seems natural and not in any way artificial. When I am back in Wisconsin next year, I will bring back several. One of my favorite beers in any style.

Had this several times and enjoyed as a change of pace. Here's a review from a fresh bottle.
A-cloudy. Looks like rusty water. A weak tan head that quickly breaks down. Tons of lively carbonation
S-cherries and lots of them!
T-again lots of tart cherries. A bit sour and puckering. A nice balance of sweetness and sourness and of course cherry flavor.
M- lots of carbonation, light refreshing body. Slightly puckering at the end
O-amazing amount of fruitiness. Hard to believe there isnt cherry flavor added but with a pound of Cherries in every bottle I guess that is the ticket. A wonderfully unique delicious beer
