Draft. Pours clear reddish brown with almost no head. Tastes light light cherry, slightly dry, not very sweet. Wheat and malt feel. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells of fermenting cherries.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2013
On tap at Pratt. Pours a clear ruby with a thin white to beige head. Soft cherry on the nose, some light wheat and malt notes. Not as tart as I would have liked, especially given the nice cherry notes on the nose. Sort of emptied out. Easy drinking, tasty enough, but not something I’d probably order again.

radagast83 (4134) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2013
On draft at DC Beer Festival. Poured a pink color with a pretty pink hued color. Aroma is strong notes of floral notes, perhaps some kind of slight sweetness in there, but not really capturing the cherries in this one. This one is pretty weak unfortunately. Flavor is a bit like light perfume, not much else outside the floral notes.

Cask. Pours mostly clear copper with average, frothy white head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is faint sweet fruit, grassy hops, straw malt, and light sugar. Flavor is a bland mix of malt and fruit esters; tart, fruity finish. Medium body and carbonation with low warmth.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at Victoria Gastropub. Pours a moderate ruby amber color with a slight head. A bit of lacing. Nose is slight cherry with caramel and a bit of sweet malt The taste brings some very light hops as well as cherries. Light toffee and malt. Light feel with good carbonation. Drinks well and is a nice, sessionable brew. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 11-03-2010

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 18, 2010
Cask at Pizzeria Paradiso. Copper color, thick white head, massive lacing. No detectable aroma. Taste has a slight, very slight edge of cherry, and not much else. Very thin and watery. Drain pour. Sorry.

GT2 (7900) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 15, 2010
Tap at RFD. Pours a clear brown with no head (bad pour). Light cherry juicy juice and crystal malt aroma. Taste is mild piney hops- not much else. This was served right next to an India Brown Ale and I could not tell the difference whatsoever. Slightly more cherry presence- but I would not have really been looking for it if the name was not Cherry Blossom ale.

I just don’t taste the cherries. It says that cherries are in there, but where the hell are they. I didn’t notice cherries in the nose or the flavor. It did appear reddish/pink but where the hell are the cherries?
