2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 fl oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear copper (pinkish-golden??) with a small pinkish head.
Aroma: Some decent mulled cherry notes with yeasty, doughy, grain notes that create an overall impression of cherry pie.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence with some prickly bubbles, a little astringent.
Flav.: Much like the nose, a bit more cherry, but really, this is liquid cherry pie to me; dry with minimal bitterness, a little brightness and a somewhat abrupt, nondescript finish.

A decent fruit beer (for a fruit beer).Aroma was like a bowl full of Fruity Pebbles soaking in a wheat beer. Pour was a nice light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was good but just like the same old fruit beer. A wheat beer with a nice berry aftertaste. Little carbonation hurt the beer. Not bad.

Ok. 6.2 Original Rate 5/22/13: 12oz bottle from ABC on Betton. Orange pour with a good sized bright white head and frothy retention. Aroma is a little of the cherry with sweet caramel malts. Tastes are watered down cherry juice. Sweet, syrupy, thin. Little carbonation. Not awful tasting - but definitely not good.

Glad others are mentioning the carbonation and gushing cuz I was afraid! It did mildly gush when I popped it, but I was able to get it poured, albeit slowly. Big foaming head, golden color. Musty nose with hints of cherry and earth, otherwise restrained. Tart cherries show up at the front in the flavor leading into a grainy middle and a mildly bitter finish, which is dry and almost flavorless. Fizzy mouthfeel.
