ben4321 (3948) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 4/25/13

Aroma: The nose has the obvious cherry, along with some malt and bread notes
Appearance: It pours a reddish-orange color with a large, frothy, off-white head and fairly heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet up-front, and then it gets rather tart in the mid-to-end palates
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a fairly fizzy mouthfeel, and a bit of an odd finish
Overall Impression: I didnít know what to expect from this one, but this one turned out to be pretty interesting. It was certainly more interesting than it was good, but still it was interesting.

From bottle. Pours amber/ red with no head. Aroma is sweet with malt and cherry. taste follows with a tartness and somewhat natural cherry taste. Carbonation is low and I guess this is a lager? Could drink one, and I did. Next.

A little over the top with the cherry flavor-feels a bit synthetic. Otherwise a pretty good fruit beer.

Bottle pours an amber/copper color with a thin off white head. Scent is tart cherries. Taste is the same with a cereal graininess.

wlajwl (3896) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Aroma is cherries and a hint of sweetness. Flavor is similar to the aroma. Not bad, but donít care for cherries and this is slightly off.

jhp40219 (305) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Aroma - Slight malt and cherry smell. Not very strong, but nice. Appearance - Small white head that dissipates quickly leaving only a white ring around the edges. Color is a hazy amber red. Slight lacing on the glass. Taste - Strong natural cherry taste up front with a nice malty, biscuity taste behind it. Very sweet and tasty! Palate - Light carbonation, full body. Overall - Evenly balanced, nice real cherry taste. Very good!

alobar (2791) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Amber pour with next to no head. Tart cherry aroma with some cherry flavor. Not much else happening here. Too sweet.

Amber color light fruit beer. Low carbonation, almost watery. Minimal cherry flavor, very neutral. Nothing distinctive about this beer.

Very low carbonation. Tastes almost watery. Clean taste. A little but of tartness from cherries. Nothing special.
