   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 8/20
GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle. Poured a dark orange color with a light reddish tint. Very fizzy pour. Almost like a pouring a ginger ale into a glass. The head acted like a soda also...a few fingers high but fizzled quickly to nothingness. Smelled of caramel, subdued cherry, and a bit of nail polish. Enough nail polish, in fact, that I feel as though this is as close to huffing something as I will ever get. Medium bodied and sweet. A bit too sweet. Mingled cherry and caramel flavors. Fairly effervescent. Not all that pleasant.

(750ml bottle) pours hazy copper with white head. Aroma of cherry medicine. Sweet back bone with some cherry. Ok beer

Leighton (11623) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2010
Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours hazy amber-red with a moderate, off-white head. Sweet, fruity aroma with maltiness. Sweet flavor, with some cherry, wood, some caramel. Medium body with light warmth. Some earthy bitterness in the finish with sweet, caramel malts. Not bad.

guerinfbfan (110) - Elmwood Park, Illinois, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Poured a nice red, with a pink frothy head. Aroma was dominated by cherry. Tasted as if you were drinking some carbonated cherry juice, with a tart kick at the end. Not a bad brew, better than I had expected given what others have said about it.

doublebock (509) - California, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Pours hazy orange with foamy white head. Musty sour milk odor. Oaky sour but musty Lambic like flavor but not detecting any cherries here.

markwise (4516) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 1, 2010
Thanks to dstructo for the share at Fruit in the Room. Pours reddish-amber with a foamy off-white head. Nose is cherry, tart, yeast, and some medicinal qualities. Flavor is similar and not enjoyable. Light to medium bodied with some unlikable qualities.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Bottle 28/2028. Hazy reddish/dark brown pour, plenty of carbonation and a weird funky dark cherry aroma. Flavor is rich dark cherry, booze, and plenty of sweetness and effervesense on the finish. Not bad, but not worth the $11/bottle IMO.

jtclockwork (8774) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Bottle thanks to daknole. Pours reddish brown. Nose is sour cherry juice. Taste is slightly tart cherries, cinnamon and malts.

notalush (4959) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2010
750ml - labeled as 2008 bottling - fizzy, slightly hazy red pour - nose of cherry syrup, fusel alcohol burn, some acidity, a mild mineral/baking soda character - lively carbonation in the mouth - taste is syrupy sweet at first, with moderate artificial-tasting cherry flavor - the beer dries out through the middle, becomes a touch acidic, and starts tasting a wee bit belgian in character - a lot of alcohol - not just the burn, but the flavor of alcohol - finishes a bit like fruit-flavored malt liquor - there are some moments in this beer, mostly in the middle, after it dries out, and before the alcohol assaults the palate, where I actually like it - the rest of the experience is disappointing.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pours a golden yellow color. Aromas of cherry, breads, and a scattering of hops. Flavor is subdued cherry, not as bold as the aroma. Crisp dry finish.
