This became my favorite red beer after just one taste. A scarlet-brown colour with a smell that doesn't say much about the beer until you have a taste. I drank about 3-5 beers that had a cherry flavour and none of them even came close to this. The taste is mostly sweet and leaves a sour aftertaste. I highly recommend you drink the last sip from the bottle separately.

From the bottle, it pours a dark reddish brown with a modest head, diminishing to an island and a small ring. Definite cherry in the nose. The mouth gets a sweetish cherry flavor with a sour finish. Interesting.

Served in a Petrus glass. Red colour, minimum red head, almost no lace.
Aroma of cherries, ripened fruits, notes of chocolate and some wood.
Medium to full body, thick texture, normal carbonation. Dry finish.
Taste of cherries, chocolate, bananas, some citrics.
Not really that sour, but it is a good, complex and well balanced beer to Taste.

Deep red when held to the light, not much head. Aroma is cherry bomb. Flavor is a cherry bomb with touches of oak and almond. Mouth feel is medium with moderate carbonation. Overall interesting, though a bit cloying.

330 ml bottle poured into a teku.

A- Dark ruby, with some decent clarity. Mildly cloudy. Head tan and dense due to effervescence. Almost creamy. Great lacing.

S- Tart cherry, slight sweetness. Oaky, classic barrel aged aroma. Not much in the depth, but enough to really please the nose.

T- Cherry up front. Sweet almost caramel, backbone of malt. Sweetness overrides the tartness in this one.

M- Body is medium-light. Carbonation tingles the senses nicely. Faint dry-tannin finish.

O- Wonderful. Sweet, tangy, and a textbook example of a wood-aged beer.

Drank this when I was quite thirsty, and it was quite refreshing. Not very beer like but still good. Strong tart cherry flavor.

Pours a strong, >1 finger head of light pink foam, topping a shockingly deep red body.

Very sweet aroma, primarily cherries and raspberries. Light tartness.

Flavor follows: intensely sweet, only slightly tart. Cherries at first, but yielding to raspberries. Overly sweet and syrupy.

Lively and active.

This is a tasty brew, but there's little depth or complexity, no oak, and no funk. It's almost more of a wine cooler than a beer.

Alright beer, more brownish red than red. But had a source cherry cola flavor. Reminded me back in the day when I was a kid and the waitress would tell me they didn't have cherry coke but instead took grenadine and marishano cherries with coke and made a cherry coke except these marishano cherries were more tart. But for a beer it's not exactly something I want.
