fidelis83 (2067) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAY 19, 2009
Pours dark reddish copper with a 3 finger gray-pink head that fades quickly to a thick skim and holds. Aroma is cherry, cherry blossom, vanilla, floury bread and a hint of citrus. Flavor is bing cherry, wet leaves, crisp yellow delicious apple, cherry juice, tart citrus notes, cherry jolly rancher and peach pit. Becomes more tart and earthy toward the finish. Palate is medium thickness with a slightly syrupy entry, sort fo chewy middle and dry, slightly acidic finish. Decent brew, but the cherry is a bit overdone and sweet.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle from Bottleworks. Pours a distinct head with very little white bubbly head. An overpowering cheerry aroma with some floral (lavendar?) undertones. Tastes very tart and sour and has very light carbonation. Quite drinkable.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 16, 2009
bottle...dark reddish pour with small head and huge carbonation. sweet cherry smell and a large cherry flavor. kind of like a soda water or tonic water drenched with cherry syrup...overly carbonated, yet enjoyable for what its worth

elihapa (1532) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle. Pours the amusing color of jolly rancher red with a fluffy pink-cream head. Arom has sweet cherry syrup, with some unidentified hard candy and vanilla essence. Palate is creamy – almost “hefty” – decadent in context of this cherry flavor. Flavor begins with cherry and ripe cranberry. Finish holds slight tartness reminiscent of strawberry lemonade. All in all a surprisingly good beer. It coats your mouth with balanced sweetness but leaves before it all gets too much.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2009
Bottled. A red beer with a pink head. The aroma is sweet fruity among them light notes of cherries. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and cherries - somewhat artificial, leading to a dry finish.

Aquilo (559) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Cherry red with a small white head. Smells of cherries. Tastes of cherries. Like a nice cherry cider. Nothing too fantastic, just nice. I was actually kind of surprised, fruit beers are usually either too sweet, or too bitter so that you can’t taste the fruit at all. This one is just right.

swoopjones (6535) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 29, 2009
Bottle. Pours pinkish red. Aromas of cherry & lots of it. Taste just like a Ludens cough drop. Little evidence of a beer here. Sweet candy like cherry. Drinkable & somewhat enjoyable. Its like Bartles & James started making beer

3.3

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 25, 2009
In the bottle from Beertopia. I don’t understand why this gets to have its ow listing since it is clearly the exact same beer as the Melbourn Bros Cherry. Pours purple with a pink head. Dark chunks swirl around the bottom. Smells like a cherry cough drop. Very tart initially, then finishes super sweet. Huge cherry taste. Not much else. A giant chalky mouthfeel, but otherwise, sort of what you’d expect this to be.

robforbes (2084) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2009
pours a clear dark red with a thin white head that dissipates quickly, and a little lacing. smell is of cherry and a little malt. taste is sweet, cherry, some malt, ends a little dry. overall good for a fruit beer, a little too sweet, and a little too much cherry.
