3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Doughy, straw lager aroma with slight sourness. Meh label, standard 12 oz longneck; slightly rusty gold beer, clear; lacing white head. Sweet, tangy, a little under-carbonated, a lot under-bittered. The black cherries are subtle - this doesn’t taste like a kriek or anything that aggressive in its fruitiness. A bit chewy, a little cherry slurpee in the frontend of the finish. Drinkable, not great. ABC, Bull Run.

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2014 Bottle ABC. Copper pour, slight tan head. Aroma of black cherry, grain. Taste is moderately sweet cherry, coriander, wheat. Little watered down. Ok. 6.2 Original Rate 5/22/13: 12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Orange pour with a good sized bright white head and frothy retention. Aroma is a little of the cherry with sweet caramel malts. Tastes are watered down cherry juice. Sweet, syrupy, thin. Little carbonation. Not awful tasting - but definitely not good.

Bottle. Pinkish gold color. Some head, no lace. Aroma is strong cherry but not over powering. Some cherry taste but not overly sweet. Nice beer.

Pours golden amber with large white head and great lacing. Aroma reminds me of my mother’s homemade cherry pie. Sour cherries with a touch of sweetness. Taste is less impressive...cherries, pears, and sour dominates. Too thin and placed on top of ordinary ale.

Jacksonville, Fl. - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly murky dark orange with a light snow white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has some sour cherry notes, a bit of cherry hand candy. Flavor is quite mellow with a touch of sour cherries, some yeasty notes, a hint of baked bread. Mouthfeel is smooth and clean. Decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
4/6/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Light amber orange pour with a giant off-white head that fades to a film fast but laces decently. Artificial cherry, cream, corn, and unwanted tartness in the aroma. Artificial cherry flavor with a lame light beer base. Meh.

Cloudy gold pour with a thin white head. Black cherry syrup with some sweet caramel malts with some weird pear and apple sauce notes. Flavor is similar and sweet with a bubbly mineral end.

12 oz. Clear amber-golden with a lasting half inch of creamy foam. Nose is overly microwaved popcorn. Taste is cherry cola, corn, and earthy wood. Light body is very carbonated and pretty well balanced for a soda.
