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.

2.4 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 Iíd drink very much of.

Draught: Aroma of cherry and black cherry. Poured rose/pink in color with a small, loose, white/pink head that lasted throughout. Excellent lacing. Lightly sweet flavor. Tastes of cherry, black cherry, malts, and slight caramel. Medium body. Dry, thin texture. Average carbonation. Black cherry and malt finish is sweet and dry.

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...

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12oz bottle... From Party Source, Iím 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, canít imagine that there are too many fans of this

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 canít 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 isnít much else going on. There truly isnít much in the way of flaws to this, I think this is what they were going for, it just isnít 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 ímalternativesí.†

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.
