3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tamarind aroma, some caramelized sugar. Watery, earthy taste with mild bitterness. Unexpected rich, toasty aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy purple red brown color. Aroma is fruit, cherries and funky yeast. The taste is carbonated bitter water and a fruit like substance. It’s got the strangest flavor I can’t even really explain it. What I can say is that I don’t like it and I don’t want another. I love a couple of the beers from Maui Brewing but unfortunately this one is a failure for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Pours an opaque amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel in the nose with a spicy edge and a vague phenollic whiff. Medium-bodied, a lightly tart fruity or berryish edge - not too sure what that is, but it’s quite exotic. Dry and lightly tart finish. A nice and different take on a cherry beer - as it turns out. 180912

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Tap @ Fifteenth Ave. Hophouse... Poured dark reddish/maroon with a thin, light tan head. Sort of meh. Easy drinking but overall non-descript. I didn’t get a whole lot of fruitiness in this, instead dark caramel malts, mild bitterness with twigs and mild berry-like tones. And a vegetable-like quality. I’m thinking maybe tainted lines? But with what I have heard about this beer it doesn’t surprise me how lackluster it was.

Draft. A murky dark amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has notes of fruits and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of cherries, malt, hay, and fruits, leading to a dry finish. The body is light.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can from Total Wine & More in Henderson, NV. Murky amber orange pour with a small head. Faint tart cherry and some bready malts. Not really digging this one.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour on tap at Freshcraft, dark orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought trash, some passion fruit, hints of medicinal cherry, pineapple, hints of caramel and toffee. Taste is a mix of dark caramel and toffee, trashy spice notes, touch of earthy cherry with some medicine, slight tart fruit, finishing fairly sweet, watery, something seemed off for sure.
