A nice brew from Troegs. This beer pours a nice head and has good aroma. The cherries can be tasted but the beer is not sour. I must say this was very enjoyable and I will seek out another sixer next year to enjoy. The 11.5% abv is slightly hot but the brew still has a decent mouthfeel.

Bottom Line: A good holiday beer to enjoy!
