2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to Tedwarhc for this bottle. Served in a tulip.
Pours a bright light pinkish-orange color with a large fizzy, soda-like head that falls quickly into a very thin collar. Nose brings forward some fake cherry character and not much else. The flavor is strange with some artificial cherry and almost tastes like a cherry Tootsie Roll without the chocolate. Light body and plenty of carbonation. Interesting, but not something I’d drink very much of.
Serving type: bottle

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber, decent sized white head. Smell like cherry and toast. I liked the fact that this was clean and crisp, without a lot of fake or artificial notes. Seemed like a nice cherry flavor, not too heavy or cloying. Would drink again...

12oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA
Aroma: Light with fruit aroma and light malt and hops.
Appearance: Golden yellow in color, clear with a light head.
Flavor: Light flavor with very little fruit flavor. Just a little would have been nice.
Palate: Dry Finish, with a not much Mouthfeel.
Overall: This was a weak beer and the fruit flavor was missing. Opps.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
body with a one finger fizzy off-hire head that fell to a wispy covering. The nose is super sweet, it smells like candy, and not in a good way. It smells so much like cherry that it just can’t be natural. Just a bit of caramel malt peeking out. The flavor is just as sweet as I expected. This honestly tastes more like a black cherry soda than it does beer. Other than a little cereal grain like note on the finish, there isn’t much else going on. There truly isn’t much in the way of flaws to this, I think this is what they were going for, it just isn’t anything that I want in a beer. Medium bodied and a bit sticky and clingy with soft fizzy carbonation. Should have just labeled this as a wine cooler or one of those crappy Tilt like ’malternatives’.

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.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin beige head. Aroma of sweet malt and cherry extract; almost black cherry Kool-aid. Malty flavor with big artificial cherry flavor through to the finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a faint salmon color with a large light pink-white head. The aroma was faint cherry and berry. The flavor was tart, tangy and somewhat sweet with light notes of cherry and a yeasty and musty undertone. The finish was medium length black cherry. Subtle but enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Heavy carbonation - explodes as soon as opened - be careful! Nice ruby and pink tinted copper coloured body with a super thick, frothy white head and a trillion bubbles floating from the bottom are visible. Aroma of cherries, malt, cardboard, fruit, wheat and a touch of icing sugar. Medium-bodied; Super effervescent with a large amount of cherries and fruity flavours at first then fading to a sweet finish with a dose of wheat and coriander seed noticeable. Aftertaste is pleasant and relatively clean - only some minor flavours hit the end, some light sweetness and a touch of cherries. Overall, an okay beer - not horrible, but a very carbonated and decently balanced beer - not too sweet, but not showing too much character. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 11-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 07-September-2010.
