2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pours a reddish amber color with a slight head and a little fizzy carbonation. The aroma is very grainy without much of a cherry scent. The taste is grainy and slightly sweet but not very heavy in cherry flavor. I’m a little disappointed as I was expecting something much different and better tasting. Do yourself a favor and pick up New Glarus Belgian Red instead.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rated on 3-22-2010 (Bottle) When poured, this beer has a small fizzy off-white head with a short retention, transparent orange body, visible carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is malty, sweet and tart cherries. The taste is sweet, sour, tart cherries, and has a short dry finish. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is not very cherry tasting and is rather bland tasting and not a beer I will seek out again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer has a nice reddish copper color to it, has a nice white head and decent lacing on the glass. The smell is mild malt and has a sour cherry scent to it. The taste is decent with a nice mild malt taste with a sour cherry finish to it, different but nice. The mouthfeel leaves you with a bitter finish but beer is well carbonated. Overall, a nice sour summer lager but not much more than that.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice ruby red colored pour. Big pink-tinted head. Plenty of lacing. Big aroma of cherry juice. Almost a Kool-Aid cherry aroma. Not bad. Taste is a bitter cherry followed by not much. Kind of bland and lifeless.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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
I didn’t 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.
