COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American style fruit beer made with Wisconsinís 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.

Cherry aroma, but not the sweet red cherry kind; seems tart. Copper color with a white head that flattened rather quickly. Near medium body until the fizzy carbonation leaves, revealing something thinnish. Whoa, it is tart. The cherry flavor is like cherry pie flavor without the sugar. That goes on into something like pie crust or bread. The finish is sourish cherry, perhaps a touch of hop bitter. If the cherry tartness is balanced with sweetness, those were pretty sour cherries to start.

A: The beer pours a slightly cloudy red-orange color with a thin layer of off-white head. S: I donít get too much of a cherry aroma from this at first. There is a bit of cherry skin to it and a slight fruity sweetness, but as it warms up, the intense cherry comes through. Some yeast and grass, as well. T: There is some cherry sweetness and a bit of cherry skin. Just a hint of cinnamon on the back end. Itís slightly acidic and grassy with a little bit of bread/biscuit malt. Not very much going on with the flavor, to be honest. M: Light in body with a moderate to high carbonation. O: I wasnít expecting much from this, and it delivered on that front. But really, not awful (which I was expecting).

GTMW. Poured clear reddish brown color and an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate dark cherry tart aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium tart cherry sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Refreshing fruit beer.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Amber ale with a thin white head. Light sour cherry jam in aroma, with malt base. Rather malty in mouth, with tart cherry noites, byut very light and watery. Boring. Mondial 2005.

Bottle poured a hazy ruby with a small lingering light pink head. Aromas of cherry, bread and light carmel. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of sour pie cherries, bread and light carmel with a crisp lingering cherry finish.

NOOOO! Reddish pour. Aroma of cereal grains, corn, weird hops and some old cherries. Flavor is just bad. A bit yeasty, sour(in a bad way) artificial cherries...YUCKOLA.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2006
12oz bottle notched brewed in May. Poured a medium golden color, with a red tint to it, and an averaged sized white head. Aromas of tart cherries - not overpowering but present with not much else. Tastes of pretty much the same. Cherries are what this beer is about, but not an artificial in your face cherriness. Thin body.

Drake (8563) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Pours a raspberry pink with a medium head that disappears quickly. Faint aroma of grain and sour cherries. Very tart cherry taste. No medicinal taste at all, which is my fear with cherry beers. Not all that bad!
