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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a slightly cloudy red-orange color with a thin layer of off-white head.
S: I don’t 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. It’s 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 wasn’t expecting much from this, and it delivered on that front. But really, not awful (which I was expecting).

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.

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.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from State Line. This one worked for me, with a hazy deep coppery magentaish body and 3-fingers of light pinkish head. Aroma was cherry, pale malt, some hopcitrus. The taste was semi-sweet to sweet, with the cherry flavor being natural and not phony tasting, with well balanced pale malt and hopcitrus. Fairly rich palate. I’d buy this again by the case without hesitation.
