375ml bottle I purchased for $15 (on sale!). Tons of cherries on the nose, cinnamon, fantastic. Flavor is a lot of cherry, its heavy fruit and its delicious. My only probably is the acidity level. It is a touch too sour for me and like most Hanssens it is too acetic for me.

Vigorous pour yields a skimpy 1/16inch light pink head over a deep reddish purple body with no lacing. Cherry like you read about on the nose and palate. I repeat, cherry, cherry, cherry! Wow! So much cherry on the finish as well. Good feel and overall, could be the most cherrific beer I've ever had!

Clear, cherry-colored with a thin, pink head that fades fast. Bright cherry and almond aromas; the almond is so distinct, it could almost be described as a slightly funky amaretto with a cherry kick. Taste is immensely sour upfront - cherries, raspberries - but with a surprise mid-ending very much like Kalamata olives soaked in brine. It works, though it is intense. Puckering at first, with the ending more dry, giving it a vinous quality.
Overall, nice, if somewhat higher in complexity than drinkability.
