Slight artificial cherry aroma and a bitter sour cherry taste. Nothing special about this beer, in fact it wasnít very good. Iím glad I only purchased 1 bottle.

Draft. Poured a clear reddish dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate cherry and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium cherry sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

@ Party Town / Florence KY - Hazy medium amber, white head cover, streaks of lace. Aroma is interesting - malt with a bit of maple. Taste is routine malt that moves effortlessly (without complexity) through the palate before adding a bit of cherry in the finish. Drawback: tart cherry lingers till the very end, masking any other flavor. Reasonable, not great.

12oz bottle - shit, I thought this was the Raibender Scotch Ale. Itís a good thing I like fruit beer. pours pale gold with white head. Nose is bad fruity yogurt. very fizzy and hereís the cherry flavor. A little smoky. "I spend my days and nights deranged!!!" mildly sweet and a tad tart.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mystery beer at Green Dot Stables in Detroit, Michigan. Figured Iíd give it a try... never heard of the beer or brewery before.
Well... Iím surprised this beer is classified as a cream ale. What? Itís the very definition of a fruit beer. The black cherry is on the front and back and everywhere in between. Itís in the smell, and itís all around. The aftertaste is somewhat tart and pretty sweet, with a malt body that reminds you that this is a beer and not some sort of a wine cooler. Make no qualms about it, this is a fruit beer. Itís not a beer with fruit juice added, it tastes like fruit juice with beer added ... take that as you will. Itís not an awful beer, but one was enough for me, and I doubt I could ever have more than two in a session. The dominance of the cherry makes this a super "girly beer". Some malt, lots of tart and sweet cherries. Itís not bad by any means, but itís far from great.

Pretty week pale cherry ale with a slight tartness from the cherries, but that's all. Otherwise a pretty bland ale.
