Pours a pinkish amber. Lacing had to be coaxed a bit. Sour cherry taste over an ale. Finish is a bit uneven. Decent drinking but unsure of what to serve with it.

The aroma is black cherry, malts, caramel. The appearance is clear, translucent amber, white head. The flavor is black cherry, caramel. The finish is cherry, caramel, light pine hops. Medium in body. Not bad.

@ Party Town / Florence KY - Hazy medium amber, white head cover, streaks of lace. Aroma is interesting - malt with a bit of maple. Taste is routine malt that moves effortlessly (without complexity) through the palate before adding a bit of cherry in the finish. Drawback: tart cherry lingers till the very end, masking any other flavor. Reasonable, not great.

Bottle. Translucent straw body, thin tight off-white head. Nose of cherry syrup and grassy hops, light. Light body with good mouthfeel, with grassy hops, biscuity, nutty malts, and cherries. Quite easy to drink.

Heavy carbonation - explodes as soon as opened - be careful! Nice ruby and pink tinted copper coloured body with a super thick, frothy white head and a trillion bubbles floating from the bottom are visible. Aroma of cherries, malt, cardboard, fruit, wheat and a touch of icing sugar. Medium-bodied; Super effervescent with a large amount of cherries and fruity flavours at first then fading to a sweet finish with a dose of wheat and coriander seed noticeable. Aftertaste is pleasant and relatively clean - only some minor flavours hit the end, some light sweetness and a touch of cherries. Overall, an okay beer - not horrible, but a very carbonated and decently balanced beer - not too sweet, but not showing too much character. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liquor Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 11-July-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 07-September-2010.

Last beer of the night at Brian’s 30th birthday shindig. Copper colored pour with a reddish tint. Big cherry smell up front with a little caramel and some grain. Flavor is cherry with light bits of caramel and grain as well. I may not be the best judge of this beer, as outside of pie and cherries themselves, I don’t care for anything with cherry flavor. This tasted more like a soda than a beer to me though.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a fizzy off-white head. Aroma is sort of cooked. Malt? Fruit? Both? Med minus body. Flavor comes over to me as more chocolate than cherry at first, later it does go mild light cherry. The flavor just lacks intensity. Not a sicky sweet fruit beer, but not a flavorful one either. Sort of bland ale.
