more of a soda than a beer, like one of those lightly flavored seltzer waters. sadly, other than the cherries and sweetness, there is nothing about this that says "beer" to me. would be nice if they had given it a little bit of a beer profile with say, oh i dont know, hops and malt? even the sam adams cherry wheat is more interesting than this. good beer to bring to a party for people who dont like beer though, like a watery lambic. oh well. still perfectly refreshing all the same. just not beer.

Bottle. Hazy honey colored beer with enormous frothy head. Yikes- alot of fluffy head at first pour. Aromas of fruit, cherries, sweet and sour. Light sweetness, slight sour. Ave carbonation. Taste is cherries and some grains. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from an undated 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: slightly hazy pale copper with a faint reddish tint. The small white head dissipates rather rapidly leaving just a ring and decent lacing.
Smell: light, sweet malt aroma with a subtle cherry character that seems more natural than artificial.
Taste: light malt flavor with a fair bit of sweetness. The cherry is less subtle, and more tart (thankfully) than anticipated from the nose.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body; medium carbonation; smooth
Overall: a decent cherry ale; just donít expect a lambic or kriek.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at the Nook. Pours copper with a small, beige head. The aroma is distinctly black cherries, with notes of brown sugar, and saaz hops. The flavor is acidic sweetness, and mild bitterness. The palate is medium, crisp and clean. Overall, this is a surprisingly delicious fruity cream ale, with distinct fruit aroma without the typical cough syrup flavor. Well done.

very sweet, almost syrupy. Very close to a lambic on sweetness. Not for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Coleís in Buffalo, NY. Drank it on recommendation of Ender from TBS. Interesting beer. Definitely fruity, a TON of cherry, and it even pours red. But itís a thick beer, almost pulpy. Not clear and crisp like a normal fruit beer. For that, it was an interesting beer to try. Unfortunately, as with a lot of fruit beers, I canít see myself drinking a ton of it. It was still a very cool try though.

Bottle. Pinkish gold color. Some head, no lace. Aroma is strong cherry but not over powering. Some cherry taste but not overly sweet. Nice beer.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Murky light amber with hues of pink and a foamy head. Aromas of artificial but decent cherry, light bread, and sour hops. Flavors chemically. The cherry flavor doesnt taste much at all like even artificial cherry. Other flavor of yeast. Slightly sour and slightly sweet.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
This was decent. Hazy copper colored beer, with a thin, white head. the aroma is great, black cherry on the nose. Alas, the flavor is not as good. tastes of barley, and decent hints of cherry, a bit watery too. Sweet, tangy finish. A bit one-dimensional and just a tad too sweet. Refreshing, and smooth, but not something I would drink a whole pint of.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to MrBunn. Aroma is all black cherries with a slight grain presence..mostly a rye smell. Pours an orangey ruby color with a moderate head. Flavor is a strong black cherry, with the sweetness bordering on cloying. Still I find myself liking it for a fruit beer. Texture is a touch watery, like its missing some body. Wheaty aftertaste...a touch of tartness.
