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.

March 31, 2013 - bottle from brewery. Dark reddish pour with limited head. Malty, grainy and tart cherry in aroma. Taste starts sweet and then becomes tart. The finish seemed a bit metallic. Light to medium bodied and some carbonation. Bottled 6/6/12.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Heavy on the cherry and not much else going on. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark red color with a pink head. Aroma of juice, fruits, some berries and sugar. Flavor of sugary fruits, juice, berries and some grass. Quite disturbing taste and weird altogether.

Ehhh, wishing for a Belgium Red (New Glarus) but this was a huge miss for me. Mainly tasted like watery cherry juice. Mostly like sugary maraschino not really cherries... Sad.

A rosey colored ale with a disappearing white head. The aroma is sugary cherry, and the body is poppy. The problem is that is not really balanced, it needs a bit more body to mellow the sweetness or bump up the tartness.

MrBeerFanatic (841) - Buffalo, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pours a dark orange red with a foamy oat colored head. Aromas of light cherries, hay, slight and grass. Flavors of wow, real cherries, real cherry sugars, and hay/grassy. Slightly tart, medium sweet, quick finish, almost no aftertaste. Liked how nothing tasted artificial like only real cherrys were used! How a fruit beer should be, by using real ingredients!

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Poured a deep red with a nice little white head. Aroma was very light with cherries. Not too much going on but have to say I am getting this in a bar after sitting for about 10 months. Taste is very simple with mild cherry flavor again. I guess a nice sessional fruit beer.

Mittenator (1208) - Michigan, USA - FEB 17, 2013
Bottle to tulip. Beautiful redish brown color with minimal head. Light body and cherry flavor. Odd fact - the only beer my mom likes. Too bad they aren’t making it this year.

Fruity but not like a lambic. Very pretty red color. Taste has a bit of a bite from carbonation, but a fruity beer needs that in my opinion.

Aniela (2305) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 29, 2013
Bottle in NYC sept 2012. Hazy red beer with a minimal pink head. Aroma reminds med of sweet cherry wine. Lots of cherry flavour. A quite nice fruite beer, not to sweet.
