2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear triaminic orange color; thick merange head. Weak body, but a big head; spotty lace, small bubbles. Sour black cherry aroma, dark with a witbierish wheat backbone. Sweet/sour black cherry flavor. Hits all sections of the tongue. Peppery on the back end with some white wine. Decent buttery smooth feel. It’s a silky, pleasant summer brew.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz, FL). Poured a reddish amber color with a beige head. Aroma and flavor were both filled with cherry notes but also had subtle strange notes of V8 juice. Very syrupy mouthfeel. There were tart moments but overall it was way too sweet for my liking. Dry finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with about an inch and a half off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s a decent amount of lacing. The brew smells like black cherries and bready/grainy malt. I think the taste is just like the aroma, full of bready/grainy malt and sweet cherries. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit slick and surprisingly creamy. It has good, soft carbonation which helps make this brew easy to drink. I think it’s a solid beer overall, I certainly wouldn’t turn one down! $1.79 a single.

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.

3.4 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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Cole’s 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 it’s 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 can’t see myself drinking a ton of it. It was still a very cool try though.

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

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.
