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.

Bottle. Translucent straw body, thin tight off-white head. Nose of cherry syrup and grassy hops, light. Light body with good mouthfeel, with grassy hops, biscuity, nutty malts, and cherries. Quite easy to drink.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours almost clear, with a unique, purple-rose tint. A small layer of smooth, light pink foam settles in to a thin rim, a soapy wash leaving few, amoeba-like spots behind. The nose is sweet and soda-like, artificial black cherry syrup showing strong against not much else. The saccharine, sugary nature of this brew carries over to the flavor. It’s basically a cherry soda pop clone. It would seem there’s not a single hop in this brew, as there is literally zero bitterness...just a sweet cherry twang. Fizzy and syrupy, even the palate resembles a soda more than beer. Is there even any alcohol in this thing? Not my style.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nearly opaque honey golden amber with not much head. Aroma is malty with an overtone of cherry and just a bit of sweetness and hops. Flavor is malty, and the cherry taste tends to dominate but is not overwhelming; it is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy. Smooth and lively, it has a nice malty, hoppy, fruity finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours orangey pink with a white head. Fruity sweet aroma, cherry dominates, with a wheaty hint. The flavor is sweet but not cloying. Decent.
