Looks nice, poured a clear but deep ruby red with big, dense pink-tinged head, lots of lace on the glass. Smell: tons of cherry, mildly tart, brown sugar sweetness. Taste: cherry, peaches in brown sugar, mild herbal and oak notes. Seems like a Kriek to me, not much else going on.

Cherry flavored beer, with a complex chocolate after taste. Not my cup of tea.

My wife really likes this beer, and would have rated it a 4.5. She liked it so much that we went the the liquor store and bought both the beer and the "glass" ware that went with this beer.

Dark brown color with a garnet hue. Light does pass. Small head that settles to rim bubbles but it does leave some beige lace streaks.

Strong cherry nose, almost as if it were blended with a kriek.

Dark malt start (without any toasted or chocolate note) and an overpowering fruit punch flavor--a bit artificial. Leans to the rich side with light carbonation. In a word. Sweet. Probably good with cheese.
