3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a pinkish amber, looks a little odd, a finger or two of foam which dissapates quickly.
Smell of sweet cherry is present throughout the beer, pleasant but somewhat artificial (?)
Taste is a mild ale, the cherry flavor is in the aroma and very noticable overriding other flavors.
Finish is very nice, clean and crisp.
Overall a fun beer to try, but nothing I would get again.

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.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a lot of head. Nice malty flavor with a light tart finish.

Mystery beer at Green Dot Stables in Detroit, Michigan. Figured I’d give it a try... never heard of the beer or brewery before.
Well... I’m surprised this beer is classified as a cream ale. What? It’s the very definition of a fruit beer. The black cherry is on the front and back and everywhere in between. It’s in the smell, and it’s all around. The aftertaste is somewhat tart and pretty sweet, with a malt body that reminds you that this is a beer and not some sort of a wine cooler. Make no qualms about it, this is a fruit beer. It’s not a beer with fruit juice added, it tastes like fruit juice with beer added ... take that as you will. It’s not an awful beer, but one was enough for me, and I doubt I could ever have more than two in a session. The dominance of the cherry makes this a super "girly beer". Some malt, lots of tart and sweet cherries. It’s not bad by any means, but it’s far from great.

Hazy tan pour, quick white head. Nose is yeast and cherries. Bittersweet. Middle is sour and refreshing, hint of vinegar. Finish is acidic. May be an accident, but this tastes like decent cherry lambic from my tongue. Try it, see what you think.

Draft at Craft. Pours deep coppery with slight pink tinge and 1-finger head that forms great lace. Nose is freshly picked black cherry, not artificial at all, with a solid malt bill. Tastes malty, with the black cherry in the background, on the sweet side. This is a solid fruit beer.

Bottle. Pours orangey pink with a white head. Fruity sweet aroma, cherry dominates, with a wheaty hint. The flavor is sweet but not cloying. Decent.

12oz bottle pours copper with gold hues and short lived white head. The aroma is very mild with faint berry and malt sweetness. The taste presents sweet malts and sweet dark cherries rounded out initially by a dash of carbonation enhanced tannins. By midway the malts and berryness come to a peak and mingling in modest somewhat restrained harmony. Nice. It gets a tad too sweet into the finish. This beer has limited depth, decent enough flavor and should prove particularly tasty on a hot day.

Glad others are mentioning the carbonation and gushing cuz I was afraid! It did mildly gush when I popped it, but I was able to get it poured, albeit slowly. Big foaming head, golden color. Musty nose with hints of cherry and earth, otherwise restrained. Tart cherries show up at the front in the flavor leading into a grainy middle and a mildly bitter finish, which is dry and almost flavorless. Fizzy mouthfeel.
