Draught @ The Pit. Hazy light copper with two fingers of creamy sandstone tan head. Nose is lightly spicy with some aromatic grain and cherry skin. Flavor is god awful. Thin with an off yeast character and rotten cherry. Not going into much more detail here. Bleh.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a dark shade of brown with a quickly receding tan head. Nose is of debittered black malts, cherry, dark fruit and sweet toffee notes. Taste is of muddled dark malts and fruity notes. Plums, cherries, sour notes, green apple, plastic off flavors and hints of cocoa powder in the flavor. Average carbonation and palate. A fruity brown ale that really is rather boring.

In short: An unclean and messy fruit beer beer (not really cherry). Meh.
How: Bottle 22oz. Split three-way
The look: Cloudy rust color body with a lot of small particles.
In long: Nose is a bit fruity (but not really cherry) with a musty character and dirty socks. Taste is stale water, dirt, overcooked berry pie, yeast, a bit of caramel, wet basement, a bit of sweetness, breakfast dark grape juice. Not to sure what to make of this supposedly cherry beer, it felt very dirty and amateurish. I didnt care for it at all but Rogue are not exactly known for their fruit beers. Before you consider buying a bottle of this beer, maybe you should consider that it is actually easier not to.

bottle. Dark ruby brown with a beige foam. Aromas are weetabix and fudge with bubblegum and bready yeast. Dark cherries with prune juice. Flavours are sweet prune juice with some cherry acidity. Background chocolate malts with bready notes. Slightly tart on the finish and fairly dry

SDalkoholic (2141) - Linda Vista, California, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Bottle from South Bay Drugs: Created a thick soapy layer of foamed head where the liquid was a glowing brown tinted mahogany hue that was full of hazy sediment. In the nose there is a bold scent of cherries and cranberries with a mild undertone of sweet malts. The flavor is somewhat astringent with an artificial taste of cherry that is found in a cherry soda or vitamins but it is worth mentioning there is some nicely toasted malt that hints towards chocolate while there is a pleasant taste of organic hops. Other than that, not much going on here that I care for and would make me drink this again.

sulawang (600) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
pours dark mahogany brown, lasting micro carbonation, small head. Reminiscent of a lambic kriek, lots of forward malts, followed by sour tart dry cherries. Lacks the sweetness amazing depth of krieks, but on the other hand finishes clean and without the funk. Overall a "tamed" version of the outlandish Belgian lambic krieks, though not particularly exciting.

Sampled at Minneapolis Beer Fest. Out of the mediocre line up offered at MBF, this was a pleasant surprise. A nice bit of fruitiness complimented the malty and hoppy notes quite well.

Bottle. Brown pour with a small head. Aroma of sour cherries and sweet malt. Flavor is cherries and lemons, but not in a good way. Meh.
