Cherry Brown Ale is brewed with Belgian Crystal & Biscuit malts, with 144lbs of sour cherries added to the fermenter. The flavor is a balance of classic brown ale & the tartness derived from the cherries, with the aroma of roasted malt.

Draft. Dark brown beer with a cream colored head. Yeast and malt aroma with light fruitiness. Cherry and malt flavor with yeast and light spice. Medium bodied. Cherry and eyast lingers with malt, light roast, and light nuttiness.

On tap at the brewpub. Now, I wasnít sure what this was when I was drinking it - pegged it as some kind of cross between a dunkel and a Belgian brown with some slight cherry flavors. Maybe itís better to rate beers that way sometimes. Pours a hazy medium brown color with a thick one-finger off-white head. Aroma is caramel, slight Belgian yeast, mild toast, and cherries. The flavor does not have much tartness to it like they claim. Fortunately itís not sickeningly sweet with medicinal flavors like many fruit beers can be. Caramel malt, bready notes, earth, Belgian yeast, and cherries. Medium-bodied with medium-high carbonation. No tart bite at all - it really is like a dunkel or Belgian brown on the feel. Overall, enjoyable enough, but not a beer anyone would go crazy over.
