1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Doughy, straw lager aroma with slight sourness. Meh label, standard 12 oz longneck; slightly rusty gold beer, clear; lacing white head. Sweet, tangy, a little under-carbonated, a lot under-bittered. The black cherries are subtle - this doesn’t taste like a kriek or anything that aggressive in its fruitiness. A bit chewy, a little cherry slurpee in the frontend of the finish. Drinkable, not great. ABC, Bull Run.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is mild cherry with some cereal grains. Taste is tart cherry which is the highlight and follows with some grainy malts and mild hops. Light bodied with some moderate carbonation. Just an average fruit beer at best, nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2009 Smells a little yeasty with perhaps a slight fruit olfactory. Pour is beautiful off yellow pinkish with lots of visible carbonation. A somewhat off white continuous head with a little pink in there. Pleasant slight tart ale flavors, Borders on a sour but does not quite get there. Fun and friendly from the start. Much better than most fruit beers. Glad I tried this stuff. Some slight bitter ale attitude on the finish. Darn, its all gone.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a cloudy cherry red color with a big off white head. Aroma was some nice tart cherries but not overwhelming, and some creamy sweetness in there as well. Flavor was alot better than I would have expected. It was semi tart cherries with just the right amount of creamy sweetness to balance out the sourness. Pretty good stuff overall.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from Cranbury BuyRite. Poured a dull orange body with lots of rising effervescence and a smaller fizzy off white head. Aroma is grains with a touch of black ferry soda. The body is loaded with fizzy carbonation, a medium body and a touch of sourness on the initial finish which gives way to lots of sugary sweetness. Flavor is sour cherry at first that fades into black cherry with a touch of cream soda and then grains. Meh seems more gimmicky and soda like then craft.

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.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. Clear amber-golden with a lasting half inch of creamy foam. Nose is overly microwaved popcorn. Taste is cherry cola, corn, and earthy wood. Light body is very carbonated and pretty well balanced for a soda.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head and some sediment. Aroma is stale black cherries mixed with some rye and some candied sugar. Flavor is very tasty. Lots of black cherry notes come through but sadly disappear quite quickly. Leaves a slightly dry and sour aftertaste.
