I have a gallon of it in the club Kriek barrel right now but I haven't tasted it. A few people I know used it in cherry chocolate stouts and such but I haven't had any yet. It tastes pretty darn good straight up.

Russian River Supplication from Russian River Brewing - Ratebeer this beer is yummy, although the cherries aren't particularly apparent.

Well I just bought a gallon of it to make a Wisconsin Belgian Red clone, we'll see how it does.

Holy cow! A four year old post being resurrected!!! Just messing with you.

By the definition of styles it would be a fruit beer.

Actually, read the last paragraph of "Comments" in category 20.

"... while other fruit based Belgian specialties should be entered in Belgian Specialty Ale category (16E)."

and under 16E "Comments"
"Some styles falling into this classification include...fruit based Flanders Red /Brown."
