An American style fruit beer made with Wisconsin’s Door County cooking cherries and lager yeast. The tartness of the cherry is balanced with the sweetness from the 2-row barley and the flavoring of Mt. Hood hops.

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.

suprchunk (2607) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2013
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.

ben4321 (4761) - 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 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.

Aroma is cherries and a hint of sweetness. Flavor is similar to the aroma. Not bad, but don’t care for cherries and this is slightly off.

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!
