3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Has a marked cherry flavor and deep red color with a frothy deep head. I like fruit ales and this is one of the best. I was not disappointed. Not an ale for someone used to hops and malts.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Supermarket Liquor Fort Collins and shared with LeninCat. Pours an orangish maroon appearance with an off white head and not much retention. Medicinal cherry, slight cough syrup, herbal, slightly tart, Starburst candy aroma. Pretty decent body but unfortunately, the flavor is pretty medicinal. Cherry, sour raspberry, twangy red apple flavor. Not very enjoyable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sampled at the gruesome UFC title match. Aroma of soggy pickled red cherries. Kind of reminded me of old canned cherries that look more grey than red. Pours dull purple with an ugly murkiness and patchy head. Taste is soggy cherries and slight bubblegum. Not a big fan of this one. It is redeemed only in not tasting like fake maraschino like some krieks.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Brownish-Red with foamy pink head. Big cherry aroma. Taste- sour cherry and more sour cherry. Hard to detect anything else. The flavor is really nice but this is a dessert ale and nothing more.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 Aroma is of sweet cherries, not artificial at all like the other reviewers are noting. Tons going on with this beer, lots of cherry flavor but not overpowering. Also has a really well crafted ale taste to balance out the cherries with notes of barely and yeast. A great drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Pretty much straight up cherry; I didn’t feel it was artificial (as other reviewers noted) but manifested a nice perfume. There’s maybe a bit of fresh mint in there. Otherwise, it’s a little biscuity in the sense of cherry pie crust, which probably makes no sense to anyone but me. Appearance: The body is hazy and reddish with a foamy off-white head that settles into a coating on the glass. Flavor: 80+ percent cherry, without a doubt; it’s a really clean tasting beer that is not overly sweet. Letting it sit on the tongue a bit longer brings out some mint and just a bit of pie crust. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: I thought this was very pleasing overall, but not in the top tier of fruit beers. I’d purchase it again if I was in the mood for a cherry flavoured ale.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home. Hazy pink pour. Aroma of cherries, slightly metallic and grainy. Flavor is sweet, fruity and sugary with loads of artificial cherries. Quite long lingering sweetness. Not too appealing.
