The nose was great with lots of fresh cherry. The taste is very light in both malt and cherry flavor.

16oz can, mildly over-filled, it seems. Airy fizzing white head. Fades to minimal. Mildly hazy orange - red color. Nice natural tasting fermenty cherry aroma. Carbonation is stronger, with a soft, tingly texture. More dry. Good lightly tart sweet taste. Authentic, but not excellent

Pleasant, clear light amber color, no fruit or anything outstanding to speak of in the aroma. Nice tart cherry flavor early on,mbut is overwhelmed bynthe malt sweetness before the finish. Refreshing, but unremarkable.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a snifter. Never heard of this brewery before, so Iíll anxious to see what they got.
2.5 A: Hazed orange ruby red color. Three fingers of beige, fizzy head. Retention is poor and no lacing is left.
3.0 S: This has the cherry, but not much else. Sweet earthy cherry, minor caramel, yeastiness.
2.5 T: Again, cherry and not much else. Maybe some caramel and a touch of bready yeast. Not bad, but unimpressive.
3.0 M: Ligher medium body. A little bit too much carbonation. Minor creaminess. Smooth enough.
3.0 D: It is what it is. Probably aimed for female consumption. Simple and straightfoward. Still, no straight up fruit beer can hold a candle to the fruit twins.
Serving type: can

Very mild aroma no cherry very slight. But Iíll give credit that this is real cherry not the fake extract thing. Cherry is very very strong in this beer. If you donít like cherry, youíve not tried to add berries to a beer and have it keep flavor, you will not appreciate what is happening in this beer. It is some tart, but the cherry stands out... They use a unique european bitter cherry. This makes an awesome Cherry Ale / Lambic. Taste is wonderful sweet cherry. Easy on the palate. This is one of the most unique beers iíve found in the US!

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy dark golden amber with light head covering and light lace. The pour was heavy on head, sucking on which produced the most pronounced tart cherry taste. The drink is light malt with a touch of cherry (even the color doesnít show red). The taste is soft and reserved to the point of having very little taste at all. Iíd heard this one isnít a "fruit beer," and thatís correct - in fact, itís hardly a beer.

16 ounce can. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a cloudy amber/red color with a huge off-white head. I couldnít get to pour the whole can into the glass at first as the head fizzed up so much. It took a while for the head to settle down before I could pour the rest of the can into the glass. Aroma is nice, but weak. The brew smells like some tart cherries and sweet malt. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, it tastes like tart and sweet cherries, and some sweet malt. However, just like the aroma, the flavor is nice but weak. Mouthfeel/body is low/medium, itís a bit slick and creamy but has too much carbonation for my liking. Not bad, but just average overall. Iíll have to revisit this one in the future since I have no idea how old or fresh this can actually is. $2.75 for a single.

Pours deep amber and head is very retentive. Nose is toasted grains, light caramels and light refreshing fruits. Flavor is sweet malts toasted grains, and sweet and refreshing fruits. Light and dry finish. Pretty nice. Iím surprised.

Can. Light tart cherry and barley malt aroma. Reddish amber color with giant head. Lightly sweet red cherry but very little malt flavor. Not bad.
