You know what youíre going to get with this. Fruit. Black Cherry all over the place. Black cherry yoghurt, but not the premium ones, the supermarket own brand. Done for the rate, sorry.

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.

Bottle poured into snifter. Aroma of cherries and tart vinegar. Reddish color with a pink head. Taste is very tart, almost sour like.Tart Cherries come through very strong. This one will definitely make you pucker.

adnielsen (9417) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2014
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.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2013
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.

vikingguy (833) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2013
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MunBro (457) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
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.

ContemplateBeer (1554) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Aroma: Pretty much straight up cherry; I didnít feel it was artificial (as other reviewers noted) but manifested a nice perfume. Thereís maybe a bit of fresh mint in there. Otherwise, itís 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; itís 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. Iíd purchase it again if I was in the mood for a cherry flavoured ale.

dynamiteninja (1561) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle. Thin loose pink head without much retention. Nose is Maraschino cherries. Oak. Sweet, tangy and sour, with some bitterness. Sweet finish.
