COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Reserved for the darkest of hearts, McKenzie’s Black Cherry is an inspiration to hard cider - rich amber, full body with a refreshingly sweet cherry finish.

Sweet cider. Very flavorful and has a delicious taste. Be careful cause it’s 6.0%. Cherry taste is there but not over powering.

Very strong cherry aromas. Pale pinkish-gold. Tastes like cherry-cider soda. Light bodied.

Smells like maraschino cherries. Very pale golden body. Taste like faint apple and maraschino cherries. Sweet on the palate.

obguthr (4070) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Draft: Cherry cough drop and new plastic smell. Clear amber, large bubbles. Sweet chery, then sour cherry, finishes more of that cough drop type of cherry flavor. Soft carbonation, tangy. Apple flavor and aroma is secondary and hardly there. Probably artificial and alcopopish, but enjoyable in its own way.

DrnkMcDermott (2835) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle at Ballydoyle. Pours a dark yellow-green cider color with very little fizz. smell has apple cider and, frankly, some rather industrial cherry flavoring to it. Soldiering on... Taste is more dense apple juice than coffer, I’m afraid. chemical smell of cherry flavoring kind of turns my palate. The server said this was one she recommended this, but it’s too much like an over-flavored apple juice, lacking the delicacy of a craft cider.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2014
From a 12oz bottle. A bit too sweet although it had some tartness. Some nice black cherry in the nose but a bit of candy too. Thin but adequately carbonated body.

Patrickctenchi (4070) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle: Slightly hazy gold, thin, quick, white cap. Black cherry, cough syrup aroma. Sweet, black cherry....again, syrupy. Whew....intense sweetness and black cherry taste. Like a cherry coke without the carbonation. Very good...but hyper sweet.

gillagorilla (30) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2014
AR: That of cider with the sweetness and distinctiveness of black cherry. AP: Golden-yellow copper with bubbles lining the inside of my tulip. T: Lots of black cherry in this, that is more prevalent than the cider. It is quite sweet, but the cider is running strong underneath. P: Smooth with no carbonation that I’ve felt. O: Good, but I will say that I’m surprised that RB has this available for rating, giving the strength of the Black Cherry here. A bit sweet though.

Great for a cider change. Very sweet. Maybe for dessert. Not everyday, not a beer by traditional thought.

Bottle. My wife ordered this and insisted I give it a try. Poured almost clear with no head. Sweet cherry aroma. Sweet and overly tart cherry flavor that for me, was a bit overwhelming. She loved it though.
