Itís murky dark brown with few bubbles. Cherry and some dank barnyard aromas. The flavor is gently tart up front, mixing fairly well with hoppy twang, dries on the finish with just a touch of cocoa powder bitterness. I would say itís on the light side of medium bodied. Itís not like a heavy Belgian kriek, and less sour, but itís still good. I was hoping for a bit more effervescence, perhaps mine was a bit old.

Appearance - Cloudy brown, thin head
Aromas - Brown sugar, cherries, raisins
Taste - Tart, cherries, light malts

This is not what I expected from Rogue - not to say that this is bad. All in all this brew is very light, the tart from the cherries is light and pleasant. Slightly malty and getting dry towards the end, itís still a brew that will make you go "hmmm" sip after sip. Interesting...

Narnad (1515) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Heavily clouded brown/red color with zero head but some bubble residue on top. Nose has light cherry, some mild roasted notes, grape and some light caramel malt sweetness late. Flavor starts with an apple cherry combo and moves into a light toasted malt presence with some sweet apricot and grape notes late. Body is modest but the carbonation was a bit flat. A light tartness finishes the mouthfeel at the tail end of the tasting. Overall an okay beer. The cherries didnít dominate and complemented the smooth malty toasted presence. Only complaint is the carbonation was on the low side from the bottle. Would of made it feel a lot better to have some more carbonation to this beer.

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.

[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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2011
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 didnít 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 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.
