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.

3.1 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.

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nearly opaque honey golden amber with not much head. Aroma is malty with an overtone of cherry and just a bit of sweetness and hops. Flavor is malty, and the cherry taste tends to dominate but is not overwhelming; it is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy. Smooth and lively, it has a nice malty, hoppy, fruity finish.

Bottle Pours out a ripe peach skin pink topped with a white head. Aroma was of cherry candy and light malts. Taste was more of the sweet cherries and a light bitterness on the end.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The aroma is strange with cherries, feet, adjunct malts, grass, and herbs. The appearance is pink gold with a large head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is watery thin. Overall this is not very good.

(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.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of black cherry, lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of of black cherry, pale malt, and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of black cherry, lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of black cherry, lemon, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of black cherry, pale malt, and fruity yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very authentic on cherry flavor as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly creamy/slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a very good fruited cream ale. All around good robustness and balance of black cherry, pale malt, and fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Interesting but not much special. Nice aroma and aftertaste of cherries and dark indeed in shape entirely.
