2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz. bottle and draught. Very disappointing. Not much black cherry flavor although the aroma was there. Weak tasting and somewhat flat.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear peach soda colored, sustained white head. Faint cherry chapstick aroma. Light cherry juice flavor, grassy body. Strawberry finish. Direct with the sweetness, no noticeable contrast.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear triaminic orange color; thick merange head. Weak body, but a big head; spotty lace, small bubbles. Sour black cherry aroma, dark with a witbierish wheat backbone. Sweet/sour black cherry flavor. Hits all sections of the tongue. Peppery on the back end with some white wine. Decent buttery smooth feel. It’s a silky, pleasant summer brew.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle… Lightly hazed straw-colored ale with a pink tint and a small, fizzy, off-white, pinkish head. Notes of honey and black cherry are provided in the aroma. Medium-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is mainly sweet and fruity in an artificial, cloying way. Light tartness. Crisp, tangy-sweet finish.
