bu11zeye (11951) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2010
(24oz bottle, 2007 vintage, so graciously provided by BMan1113VR) Pours a hazy reddish body with a small white head. Aroma of artificial cherry (cough drops) and some toasted grain. Flavor of a nauseating cherry cough syrup with a dry finish.

bhensonb (11120) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Aroma of sweet cherry - not super sweet, but not at all sour. Clear mahogany color with a white head that ringed rapidly. Medium body with fizzy/creamy carbonation. The flavor is sweet malt, and the cherry is a bit like sucking cherry skin or pit. This seems to be a pretty malty lager, and the finish is not dry, but it is not overly sweet either. Sort of balanced, if the cherry bitter notes get counted. Very interesting try from a big brewer.

brokensail (10996) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks to James for this special treat. Faded red/orange pour with a small white head. Nose is like cherry soda and Kool Aid. A bit of cardboard and seltzer. Tastes like sucrets. Just sort of a sweet cherry syrup and crystalline sugar thing going on. Slightly watery. Definitely oxidized. Just sort of sweet and that’s about it. Not awful, though.

Tmoney99 (10708) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Bullet shaped bottle from Party Town. Poured reddish brown color with a large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid dark cherry aroma. Moderate body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium spicy sweet cherry flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid seasonal beer.

daknole (9127) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2008
2007. Reddish pour. Smelled like some weird cherry candy and tasted quite the same. The sweetness doesn’t seem to meld with the type of malts and few hops that are used. Odd beer.

adnielsen (9122) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle @ RBWG Fart Share. Pours a murky reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Some spicy cinnamon notes in the nose with apple and cherries. Somewhat tart, pie cherry, lightly oxidized flavor. Some caramel too. Taste the .rar. Huge thanks to jtclockwork for breaking this out of his cellar!

Sammy (8675) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2008
Fizzy pinkish foam is the pour. Bubblegummish cherry aroma. Taste is lagerish overrid by cherry essence. Like a mild kriek though very sweet.

Drake (8601) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 12, 2014
RBWG14 Trip Rating #54. Bottle shared at the Friday Night Downtown Inn Bottle Share. Pours a clear red color with floaties. Thin creamy tan head. Aroma of cherry Twizzlers and mild pale malt. The taste is Twizzlers candy with some grainy notes. Thin bodied. Not terrible.
