I’m not a big fan of fruit beers, but as usual SA has done an admirable job here. Hazy, deep gold color under a frothy, white head. Very distinct cherry aroma combined with some faint malt. A well presented cherry vanilla-like flavor; just right, not too sweet, cloying or overwhelming. Smooth texture, not too fizzy. Very enjoying on a hot summer day.

This is an unusual beer. I have to admit that it hardly tastes like beer at all. The cherry flavor is VERY apparent. I like it, but don’t drink this if you are in the mood for beer. It is like maraschino cherries with a bit of a beer taste. Well maybe not that bad, but it is very cherry. Seems to have more of a fruity flavor than the raspberry beers I have had. Too fruity in my opinion.

I had a stint a while back where I was picking this up quite often - at the time I enjoyed the crisp refershing taste and the hint of cherries - the presentation is outstanding - a golden pint with a slight reddish tint (or is that my imagination) - very light and easily a session beer - now perhaps my tastes have changed or the brew has, but I don’t pick it up hardly at all anymore - nothing against it - in fact writing this makes me consider picking a bottle up soon - a beer all should try with an open mind -Best on a hot summer day. Cheers!

I have had better ’cherry beers’, but I have had worse. This is very drinkable unlike some overpowered fruit beers.

All in all pretty decent. Could have used either a little less or little more cherry flavor. Sounds odd, but neither taste overpowered the other and I think one should have. ie. Beer with a hint of cherry, or a stong cherry flavored beer. This was just in between.

This is a lighter beer in flavor, that is for sure. I didn’t mind this beer at all. The flavor of cherries is definitley there, but it isn’t a bad thing. This is a fairly refreshing drink. The aroma and color aren’t too bad either.

This is not a beer. This is a very good cherry soda.

very strong cherry flavor. Reminds me of bad cough medicine I took as a kid.
