From the keg at the 2012 Selinsgrove Beer and Wine Festival
Pours deep coppery with slight pink tinge and 1-finger head that forms great lace. Nose is fresh black cherry, not artificial at all, with a solid malt bill. Tastes malty, with the black cherry in the background, on the sweet side.
Has kind of a bitter after taste.
This is a solid fruit beer. Very distinct and bold.

Amber, decent sized white head. Smell like cherry and toast. I liked the fact that this was clean and crisp, without a lot of fake or artificial notes. Seemed like a nice cherry flavor, not too heavy or cloying. Would drink again...

Draft. hazy golden color, medium off white head. Aroma is pure cherry. Taste is certainly cherry forward, a bit of caramel in there too.

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold color with a fizzy white head and some sediment. Aroma is stale black cherries mixed with some rye and some candied sugar. Flavor is very tasty. Lots of black cherry notes come through but sadly disappear quite quickly. Leaves a slightly dry and sour aftertaste.

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 !

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 oz bottle from the sampler case. Very little cherry and lots of dryness. Bitterness lurks throughout. I’ll pass on the next one.

Interesting but not much special. Nice aroma and aftertaste of cherries and dark indeed in shape entirely.
