2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 fl oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear copper (pinkish-golden??) with a small pinkish head.
Aroma: Some decent mulled cherry notes with yeasty, doughy, grain notes that create an overall impression of cherry pie.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence with some prickly bubbles, a little astringent.
Flav.: Much like the nose, a bit more cherry, but really, this is liquid cherry pie to me; dry with minimal bitterness, a little brightness and a somewhat abrupt, nondescript finish.

pours dark, amber color. Has a nice aroma and a mild flavor of cherries, not overwhelming but good. This one came in a summer case.

Pours a clear copper color with no head. Aroma of bread and cherry. Black cherry flavor with caramel and bread. A bit too sweet, but still decent.

Bottle. Pours almost clear, with a unique, purple-rose tint. A small layer of smooth, light pink foam settles in to a thin rim, a soapy wash leaving few, amoeba-like spots behind. The nose is sweet and soda-like, artificial black cherry syrup showing strong against not much else. The saccharine, sugary nature of this brew carries over to the flavor. It’s basically a cherry soda pop clone. It would seem there’s not a single hop in this brew, as there is literally zero bitterness...just a sweet cherry twang. Fizzy and syrupy, even the palate resembles a soda more than beer. Is there even any alcohol in this thing? Not my style.

While at Dunderbak’s, I asked the waiter what was on draft for fruit beers and it was this or one other - this was the one I selected. I expected cherries to be present in either the aroma or taste and found it lacking all around. Next time I’ll order the other fruit beer.

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.

Tart sweet fruity aroma; looks like beer soda, or soda beer with all the bubbles; light on the palate; flava is sweet, like cherry soda; matter of fact I think it is cherry soda!
