2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a small bottle into a small glass to sample at a beer tasting. The beer had a barley malt aroma with light fruity notes of cherry and apricot, and some barley and malt, with touches of floral, wheat, and grain notes. It had a rusty orange, clear color with a good-sized foamy white head with short retention, low cling, and good lacing. The beer had a semi-sweet blend of fruity and floral flavors with some straw and barley, and was mildly sour and a touch bitter. It was a touch dry with a clingy mouthfeel, and had low carbonation and life, and was on the thin side. Thanks for sharing, Corey.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Moriartys. Clear amber pour with a hint of pink. Small white head. Shortbread. Straw. No hops presence. Subtle cherry flavors - probably a bit too faint. Not much more there to sell it though. Feels like a flavored water.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with the faintest hint of pink and a very thin just off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, cardboard, funk and perhaps a small amount of fruit-based sugars. Light to Medium-bodied; Pale malt flavour with a bit of cardboard, caster sugar and the lightest bit of cherry flavour imaginable. Aftertaste relatively bland as well with some pale malt and odd sugars coming through and not much else. Overall, not such a great beer - as expected, lacking in pretty much everything, but complexity is first and foremost. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant in Arlington, Virginia on the same day, 01-April-2013 and given to me by a hockey teammate.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a clear amber with some reddish hues, little white head and hardly any lacing. Aroma is faint cherries and some grains. Taste is also quite grainy some sweetness from malts and a slight cherry flavor, balanced, refreshing and drinkable. Nice offering from the local brewery...

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Very drinkable but nothing noteworthy. Not hoppy. Typical fruit beer. Nice color but I didn’t pick up the cherry too much.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A very subtle cherry flavor accents a fairly crisp and well balanced lager. The cherry is very understated in the aroma as well. Nothing extraordinary but quite drinkable even for someone who’s not big on fruit beer. Not too shabby!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy red color with a small white head. The nose smells faintly of dark cherries and vegetal notes. The flavor is a mix of cereal grains and cherries, sort of like a Total with dried cherries in it. Light to medium body with a grainy finish. Not poorly made, just not my cup of beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours amber red with an off white head. Grainy malty base with a hint of fruity sweetness. The flavor has a light cherry sweetness, grainy malts, and a light floral bitterness. Actually quite drinkable, nothing special though.
