Beer Stories
Brewery folklore tells a story about a train engineer with a passion for the taste of Railbender Ale. With every stop he made in Erie came an equal number of stops at our brewery. One extended visit to our fermenter left the engineer in a rather befuddled state of mind. On his fateful trip out of Erie that evening, his train mysteriously derailed. The engineer swears that a huge black cherry tree had fallen across the tracks as the culprit. No such tree was ever found, but the front of the locomotive was spattered with hundreds of red sports. In tribute to this folklore our expert brewers introduce Derailed Black Cherry Ale – brewed with fresh sweet black cherries and the finest malted barley to create a truly cherrylicious ale. Please enjoy responsibly, as we would never want you to get derailed!

the beer is straight forward with a touch of black cherry juice for flavor. it tastes more like a malt beverage instead of a straight fruit beer, nothing special but still quite good.

The aroma is strange with cherries, feet, adjunct malts, grass, and herbs. The appearance is pink gold with a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is watery thin. Overall this is not very good.

BuckeyeBoy (2837) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle Pours out a ripe peach skin pink topped with a white head. Aroma was of cherry candy and light malts. Taste was more of the sweet cherries and a light bitterness on the end.

sebletitje (6784) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2009
pours copper/orange, white head. Aroma of cherry juice, light caramel and malts. Flavor, sparkly mouthfeel with fruits that reminds me of cherry juice, light hints of sweetness along the lines of a wine cooler. Some hints of malts with some lingering bitter fruits in the finish.

BrewDad (5004) - Olympia, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2009
12oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA
Aroma: Light with fruit aroma and light malt and hops.
Appearance: Golden yellow in color, clear with a light head.
Flavor: Light flavor with very little fruit flavor. Just a little would have been nice.
Palate: Dry Finish, with a not much Mouthfeel.
Overall: This was a weak beer and the fruit flavor was missing. Opps.

revans (46) - Salem, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2009
12 oz. bottle and draught. Very disappointing. Not much black cherry flavor although the aroma was there. Weak tasting and somewhat flat.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours a amber peach body with a light white pink hued head. Aroma is a bit dank like staled mildewed malt and musky black cherries. Mildly sweet upfront then a more grainy dull malt bill to back up the short lived sweetness. Thin and very short lived in terms of flavor and aroma. I would pass on another one.

gsmitty80 (1811) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 10, 2009
This was an interesting beer. Had it on tap and poured a nice pinkish color with a good head and lacing throughout. Aroma was overwhelming, preparing you for the sweet taste ahead. The cherry flavor was strong and overwhelming, but it was a nice beer to try. Will not be having another.

njmoons (59) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Pours a pinkish amber, looks a little odd, a finger or two of foam which dissapates quickly. Smell of sweet cherry is present throughout the beer, pleasant but somewhat artificial (?) Taste is a mild ale, the cherry flavor is in the aroma and very noticable overriding other flavors. Finish is very nice, clean and crisp. Overall a fun beer to try, but nothing I would get again.
