Beer Stories
Brewery folklore tells a story about a train engineer with a passion for the taste of Railbender Ale. With every stop he made in Erie came an equal number of stops at our brewery. One extended visit to our fermenter left the engineer in a rather befuddled state of mind. On his fateful trip out of Erie that evening, his train mysteriously derailed. The engineer swears that a huge black cherry tree had fallen across the tracks as the culprit. No such tree was ever found, but the front of the locomotive was spattered with hundreds of red sports. In tribute to this folklore our expert brewers introduce Derailed Black Cherry Ale – brewed with fresh sweet black cherries and the finest malted barley to create a truly cherrylicious ale. Please enjoy responsibly, as we would never want you to get derailed!

Pretty week pale cherry ale with a slight tartness from the cherries, but that's all. Otherwise a pretty bland ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin beige head. Aroma of sweet malt and cherry extract; almost black cherry Kool-aid. Malty flavor with big artificial cherry flavor through to the finish.

TomDecapolis (4482) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Tap at Capones. Pours a hazy pink with a medium creamy white head that left spotty lacing. Aroma of ripe cherries and cereal grains. Flavor of the same with some sugar coated Cheerios.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2009
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.

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.

probstblueribbon (2919) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2011
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.

Interesting.

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.

MrBeerFanatic (866) - Friona, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Murky light amber with hues of pink and a foamy head. Aromas of artificial but decent cherry, light bread, and sour hops. Flavors chemically. The cherry flavor doesnt taste much at all like even artificial cherry. Other flavor of yeast. Slightly sour and slightly sweet.
