4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured the ugliest reddish-brown: murky as hell with tons of floaties and this excited me greatly. Not being a gan of sours, I was worried, but this had just the right amount of pucker to it. Quite, quite quaffable.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Was excited for this one but not so good. Pours hazy copper brown. No head, just thin ring around the edge of the glass. Odd aroma - wants to be a sour but isnt. Alcohol, raisins, caramelized brown sugar.

12 oz can from "Lifesource" Salem. $2.69
Pours a murky amber with a large ,creamy light tan head.
Interesting aromas of cherry pits,mango and dark chocolate???
Flavour is very well balanced, malty,liquorice,dark tart cherries and pits,,slightly tart .
Mouthfeel is pretty nice..very little carbonation though.
Strange one..it wasn’t bad but i was not 100% convinced either.

Pours a cloudy amber color. Smell is mild, some cherries. Taste is hops up front, malts kicking in at the finish, a bit of cherries. Overall a decent beer.

Definitely made with hawaiian thai. Cloudy deep amber. Little white head. Aroma might make you smile if you still appreciate the finer things in life. I said finer, not the junk you smoked in high school. Flavor... yeah! Hang ’10!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of tropical fruit, cherry, light tartness, floral hops, grain dust. Taste is slightly tart with a decent amount of cherry, slight fruit juice, but balanced well with the floral hops.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. can from Grape & Gourmet. Pours reddish-orange with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of cherry, passion fruit, and guava from what I can tell although there is probably some fruit there that I have never experienced. The flavor is lightly tart but fails to offer much in the way of juicy fruit that I had hoped for. Lacks any finish at all. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can, kindly gifted by beer writer Brian Stechschulte. Thanks, man! Pours a deep golden-edged amber, almost cola colored; off-white head with modest retention and nice lacing. Aroma shows plenty of biscuity notes and a grainy maltiness, with a cherry-like fruitiness around the perimeter; various passion fruit and tropical fruit notes hovering as well. Medium body; moderate CO2. Some assertive bitterness on the tip of the tongue, followed by (again) that grainy wet maltiness (biscuits and caramel) and basic cherry and tropical fruit hints; I get a touch of overt ethanol in there as well, warming things up. Not a great beer, but a basic red ale with subtle cherry additions. Finish shows the alcoholic warmth and lingering graininess more clearly.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brown red with minimal head. Malty, lightly sweet, a bit of tart cherry, grain in the aroma. Medium, syrupy body. Flavor has lightly tart cherry, bready malts, a bit of earth, and wood. Not really sure what this was meant to be but I’m pretty sure they missed.
