Beer Stories
Brewery folklore tells a story about a train engineer with a passion for the taste of Railbender Ale. With every stop he made in Erie came an equal number of stops at our brewery. One extended visit to our fermenter left the engineer in a rather befuddled state of mind. On his fateful trip out of Erie that evening, his train mysteriously derailed. The engineer swears that a huge black cherry tree had fallen across the tracks as the culprit. No such tree was ever found, but the front of the locomotive was spattered with hundreds of red sports. In tribute to this folklore our expert brewers introduce Derailed Black Cherry Ale – brewed with fresh sweet black cherries and the finest malted barley to create a truly cherrylicious ale. Please enjoy responsibly, as we would never want you to get derailed!

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUN 27, 2009
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.

Ughsmash (7177) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 12, 2012
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.

Ibrew2or3 (7055) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2009
12oz bottle pours copper with gold hues and short lived white head. The aroma is very mild with faint berry and malt sweetness. The taste presents sweet malts and sweet dark cherries rounded out initially by a dash of carbonation enhanced tannins. By midway the malts and berryness come to a peak and mingling in modest somewhat restrained harmony. Nice. It gets a tad too sweet into the finish. This beer has limited depth, decent enough flavor and should prove particularly tasty on a hot day.

sebletitje (6859) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 10, 2009
pours copper/orange, white head. Aroma of cherry juice, light caramel and malts. Flavor, sparkly mouthfeel with fruits that reminds me of cherry juice, light hints of sweetness along the lines of a wine cooler. Some hints of malts with some lingering bitter fruits in the finish.

DrSilverworm (6819) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2013
12oz bottle... From Party Source, I’m pretty sure. Clear golden orange color. Thin white head. Little arcs of lace. Medium body. Kind of soft, more pronounced carbonation. Lightly dry in the finish. Sweet taste, with a bite. Some wheat, wet laundry, artificial tasting cherry. Musty. Worse than I thought it would be, can’t imagine that there are too many fans of this

Pours amber with a white head. Smells of cherries, some caramel. Tastes of sweet cherries and molasses.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2011
Bottle:   Translucent pink, very pale and clear, large fluffy white head, nice lacing, mild carbonation.   Either filtered or not made with real cherries.   Biscuity cherry flavored nose, graham cracker of the cherry variety.   Pectin as well.   Yeah, smells like freezer jam.   Almost has a cherry, strawberry, and raspberry grab-bag of flavors.   Certainly artificial, but not terribly bad.   Reminds me of cereal sweetened with jam.   This is like a golden or blonde sweetened with jam.   Yeah, hot steam coming from the jam on the stove, coupled with that pectin stuff.   Totally.   Makes me thinking I am drinking the runnings off my mothers freezer jam.   Brings back memories, but for a beer... meh, tiz okay.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Probably would go great with a salad.   Decent light fruit beer that isn’t too artificial.

blipp (6278) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 5, 2009
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.

drowland (6135) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 6, 2013
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.
