3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Clear reddish orange, smallish lasting head. Pleasant sourish light cherry aroma. Very little fruit in the body, lightly sour and acidic, some nice cherryskins just at the back end, good lasting fruit-sour finish. The back end makes this one, though itís still no masterpiece.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear copper-red with a thin off-white head. Light musty, earthy aroma which hints at cherries but doesnít have any tart, sweet character. The body is watery and the flavor is rather weak, although the cherries lend an earthy tartness to the otherwise boring, bland lager body. I could kick a few of these back, however.

Bottle from Kevin42. Nose is dirty, almost like an ashtray. Just took the first drink-tastes like cherry icing. Bad. Cherry and acrid. Bad, bad, bad. No good.

I was hoping for more on this one. Amber Coloring. Sweet - Cherry. Little malty...but overall a bit disappointing.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle. looks like apple juice with a nice off white head. not much aroma, the cherries can barely be detected in the nose. taste was not what i was expecting, there might not be enough cherry taste to this, it is very understated. leaves an overly malty taste on finish. i think iíll try the remainder with some east side dark i also have. i dont think it could hurt.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice dark amber color,small white head that had a decent hangtime.Malty caramel aroma with maybe a hint of hops in there somewhere.Nice flavor of mild malt and the cherry seems to be nicely balanced in there with it not getting to much in the way of the other flavors of hops and caramel.There is also a slight sour side coming through but not overly so.Nice brew that i could easily enjoy over this summer.Thanks to Nexxus for sending this fine brew my way.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small fizzy head on an attractive clear reddish/gold body. Aroma is ok... black cherry with a little bit of lemon. Has a sweet citrusy/tart cherry taste, along with some wheat. Its ok, just light.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
What the... Pours a nice golden color with little head. No real *wham* of cherries on the nose, just some vague malt. The taste... the taste... I just donít know. Thereís some malt but primarily a stagering sweetness. Itís a fruit sweetness, but Iím not sure itís only cherry; maybe it has some apple too. It didnít really float my boat.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A nice clear medium ruby amber with a medium diminishing white head and lots of bubbles. Weak aroma of cherry, toasted light bread and honey. Medium light watery body with lively carbonation. Slightly grassy flavor of toasted light bread, cherry, green apple and a hint of lemon. Refreshing. The flavor and aroma are a little too weak for my tastes, but at least the cherry isnít medicinal. Not bad.
