COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
You’ll have a soft spot for this one. Using only fresh Michigan tart cherries, this beauty tantalizes with intense flavors combined with a no hesitation malt bill. Adding fresh cherries at five separate stages of fermentation achieves the ultimate balance between tartness and sweetness.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy dark red color with a small foamy light pink head. Strong cherry aroma. Taste of tart cherries with a sweet syrupy finish. I love Founders, but not a fan of this.

A hazy, plum colored beer with a small pinkish head. The aroma is malty with lots of cherry. The flavor is pure tart cherry. Good body and quite tasty.

Light ruby pour with a white head. Aromas of fresh tart cherries. Very light and crisp. The cherry flavor is upfront but not too intense. Perfect balance of tart and sweet. Very refreshing, I could drink plenty of these during the summer. Solid brew.

Translucent red amber with a pinkish white thin creamy head. Soft full body with medium carbonation.

Aroma: unpleasant vomit-like funk, rotten cherries, and sweet malt.

Taste: sweet malt and pleasant cherries. Odd funk is still fhere, but less dominant.

Bottle. The our is a bright hazy reddish pink. The aroma bursts sweet with cherry. The taste is very light, and less cherry than the smell indicated. If you are into fruit beers, this is not a bad one. Personally I prefer to mix this with breakfast stout, which is a really solid brew.
