2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer tasted more like a B&J wine cooler than a beer. This offering from Erie was way too sweet and fruity for my palate, and several others, accorinding to a small sample of other experienced beer drinkers at the Craft Ale House on this afternoon. This beer poured a nice dark golden color with a generous off-white head with good lacing. The aroma was semi-inviting with notes of sweet malt and fruits. But the body was way too sweet and the cherries stood out a little too much for my liking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Craft. Pours deep coppery with slight pink tinge and 1-finger head that forms great lace. Nose is freshly picked black cherry, not artificial at all, with a solid malt bill. Tastes malty, with the black cherry in the background, on the sweet side. This is a solid fruit beer.

Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy pink with a medium creamy white head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of ripe cherries and cereal grains. Flavor of the same with some sugar coated Cheerios.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a pinkish amber with a bit of a fizzy head. Aromas of tart cherries and an almost rye & wheat-like malt presence. Flavor is heavy on the cherries... black cherries with just a little bit of pie cherries thrown in to add some tartness. This beer is not a rough and tumble beer, but I kinda like it... This is a really good fruit beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a cloudy cherry red color with a big off white head. Aroma was some nice tart cherries but not overwhelming, and some creamy sweetness in there as well. Flavor was alot better than I would have expected. It was semi tart cherries with just the right amount of creamy sweetness to balance out the sourness. Pretty good stuff overall.
