2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours brown with a light head. Not a ton of aroma except for faint hints of malts not even the expected cherry. If you concentrate really really really hard you might get a faint subtle dusting of cherry flavor. You could also say the same about the brown ale. Finishes with a bit of the malt. I wasn’t expecting such beer minimalism.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bctc 08. I cant beleive this was one of the first beers for them to kick. Pretty bad stuff here. Pours a decent looking deep amber fruity red with a thin lasting head. Aroma was cough syrup, wierd slick cherries- and Diacetyl! ech- diacetyl in a fruit beer- gross. More syrupy cherry juice in the flavor mixed with butter and a weird slick finsih. Meh.

BCTC. Wow, this was bad. Dull, lager-like aroma, very vegetal. Crap. Sour cherry? Are you kidding? Nothing in this even comes close to showcasing cherry, or sour, or even any fruit. Blech.

Dark brown-red pour with a white head. A little bit of funk on the aroma, but otherwise dominated by cherries. Some creaminess as well. Sour cherry flavor with cream and spice, perhaps cinnamon. Woody finish.
