3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample. Pale pink in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of sweet cherry candy and sugar cookies. Delicate floral cherry, vanilla, and grainy malts on the palate. Light bodied. Tasty enough, but whenever I have a beer like this I always wish I was drinking kriek instead.

Draft at ABR under the name Cherry Batch 2200. Pretty, bright, tart, starburst cherry aroma. Poured a Bright pink wiht some brownish/amber highlights. Fairly dry and tart on the palate. Very crisp and refreshing. Just a hint of sourness on the finish. Crisp and lively with excellent carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Autumn Brew Review. Wow, pours a bright, clear maraschino cherry red color with a white wispy head. Very sweet chery pie filling like aroma and nothing else coming from this. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is like drinking liquid pie filling! Good, but pretty sweet overall. Not tart at all. As a fruit beer I think this is very successful but again the sweetness could be dialed down just a touch.

Tap,ABR.One of the delights at the ABR.Cloudy pink with a sour cherry nose.I was thinking this woilg be "Lambic" sour but it has a nice balance of sweet and sour. A little acidic buy tasty overall.
