3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 7-11-12 -
Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass
Appearance – Served a lightly hazy golden orange color with a small white head. The head faded fast leaving a light lacing.
Smell – Aromas of a malty base mixed with cherry are the most prominent. With these are some lighter aromas of yeast and some banana.
Taste – The flavor begins of a sweeter cherry and lighter malt base. As it moves on the sweetness fades slightly but by no means does the cherry flavor becomes more dry. Toward the middle and the end of the taste notes of vanilla shinning through and create a palatable flavor on the tongue that lingers on.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was rather average with the carbonation level being slightly above. Both were quite fitting for the sweeter and fruitier flavors of the beer, making it more refreshing on the tongue.
Overall – While on the sweeter side this was a very tasty and refreshing beer. One that is good on a summer day and one well worth a try if you have never had it.

Slight artificial cherry aroma and a bitter sour cherry taste. Nothing special about this beer, in fact it wasn’t very good. I’m glad I only purchased 1 bottle.

Draft. Poured a clear reddish dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate cherry and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium cherry sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectation where met.

@ 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.
