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.

Dark fruit flavor of cherry with a bit of malt. Not too sweet, but a bit tart. Aftertaste is meh.

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.

Clear peach soda colored, sustained white head. Faint cherry chapstick aroma. Light cherry juice flavor, grassy body. Strawberry finish. Direct with the sweetness, no noticeable contrast.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 7-11-12 -
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a lightly hazy golden orange color with a small white head. The head faded fast leaving a light lacing.
Smell – Aromas of a malty base mixed with cherry are the most prominent. With these are some lighter aromas of yeast and some banana.
Taste – The flavor begins of a sweeter cherry and lighter malt base. As it moves on the sweetness fades slightly but by no means does the cherry flavor becomes more dry. Toward the middle and the end of the taste notes of vanilla shinning through and create a palatable flavor on the tongue that lingers on.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was rather average with the carbonation level being slightly above. Both were quite fitting for the sweeter and fruitier flavors of the beer, making it more refreshing on the tongue.
Overall – While on the sweeter side this was a very tasty and refreshing beer. One that is good on a summer day and one well worth a try if you have never had it.

Dark gold color. Cherry medicine aroma. Taste was slightly better with black cherry but still artificial and metallic. Not good.

This was an interesting beer. Had it on tap and poured a nice pinkish color with a good head and lacing throughout. Aroma was overwhelming, preparing you for the sweet taste ahead. The cherry flavor was strong and overwhelming, but it was a nice beer to try. Will not be having another.

Golden/peach color. Kind of dig aroma, very intense cherry character. Flavor is mouth puckering combo of sweet and sour cherries. Sweetness becomes overwhelming. Pretty thin on the palate.

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.

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.
