COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Two Cherry Ale is a fragrant and delicious pairing of ripe cherry brightness with light maltiness. Its amber reddish hue comes from being fermented with real Montmorency cherries.

Had this beer on 9/19/2001. Aroma is a faint dry scent of cherry and malt. Color is a creamy reddish brown with good carbonation and head. Taste is odd, a bit wine like. Starting with a medium body it goes down with a crisp feel and a dry cherry taste. Finish is this dry flavor turning to a sweet taste with a nice maltiness. Although it’s all odd it does come out to be refreshing and light. Overall it’s a tasty fall brew with a good body and refreshing end.

Extremely strong cherry flavor. Works well in a lambic such as this. possibly weighs in on the medicinal side, but I like it. Great head.

You know I just need to learn to stay away from fruit beers. These are kind of like green bottles to me, I never end up liking the finished product. This was just a little too much for me. Dark amber pour, no head, and a funky fruity aroma. There is very little cherry, just there as kind of a tease, predominantly malty in the finish. There is just not too much unfortunately.

A lot lighter than the old cherry ale of a few years ago. Nice, but not as much flavor or aroma as I’d like

nstal (237) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2002
The cherry flavor is much more reserved than expected. Still a good balanced blend of flavors that’s worth having when you are looking for something a little sweet.

A nice little ale but disappointing as the cherry flavor was almost missing, covered up by hops. This ale would be much better with less hop flavor and more cherry.

Slight cherry aroma. Great amber color. This beer has a slight cherry flavor with a good malty taste. Could use a little more cherry flavor.

Fair cherry aroma with a simple, smooth, light body that has a decent cherry flavor--making the beer an enjoyable novelty to at least try.
