2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
A bit of a malty nose along with the fruit. Appearance is nice, heading towards amber. Palate is a sticky sweet mess. No balance, or counterpoint, borders on undrinkable on a day you aren’t sweating.

12oz bottle - shit, I thought this was the Raibender Scotch Ale. It’s a good thing I like fruit beer. pours pale gold with white head. Nose is bad fruity yogurt. very fizzy and here’s the cherry flavor. A little smoky. "I spend my days and nights deranged!!!" mildly sweet and a tad tart.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of grayish white head of fine bubbles that recede rather quickly. A decent black cherry aroma with some grape juice and some light malts. Color is a brown with a slight reddish hue. Decent carbonation. Kind of sickly sweet aroma with some more black cherry, grape and grainy malts. Maybe some creamed corn in there also. I ambig fan of black cherry but this just seems a bit synthetic to me.

i needed to tame my initial impression of this fruity sour brew with some thought about my experiences with these types of beers and the challenges that the brewer has inventing them. after a few sips i began to enjoy the genuine black cherry sour and slightly sweet taste with the yeasty and lively light malt finish in a moderate body that cleans everything up and makes you ready for another sip. for what i can tell this is a successful beer especially for the summer... enjoy one !

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This beer tasted more like a B&J wine cooler than a beer. This offering from Erie was way too sweet and fruity for my palate, and several others, accorinding to a small sample of other experienced beer drinkers at the Craft Ale House on this afternoon. This beer poured a nice dark golden color with a generous off-white head with good lacing. The aroma was semi-inviting with notes of sweet malt and fruits. But the body was way too sweet and the cherries stood out a little too much for my liking.
