3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is sort of cooked. Malt? Fruit? Both? Med minus body. Flavor comes over to me as more chocolate than cherry at first, later it does go mild light cherry. The flavor just lacks intensity. Not a sicky sweet fruit beer, but not a flavorful one either. Sort of bland ale.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to coyotehunter. Pours with a clear peach to rose hued body with a small white head. Aroma of slightly tart, earthy, cherry, grape juice and acetaldehyde as it warms. Taste is metallic, with wet wheat and some sort of fruit...Not good, sorry. Fizzy and dry.

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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright lighter golden with a short, well-retained white head. The aroma picked up cherry skins plus some sort of tropical fruity acidity over pale and lightly bready malts.. something wasn’t quite right. The flavor found tart fruit skins upfront, with pale malts at the core.. odd, nondescript sourness around.. finished with more dry sourness and Aspartame. Light-bodied with scratchy carbonation on the palate.. OK feel overall.. not a good beer.
