Quite a bit of dotty lacing. Cherry color, as expected, with pink head. Aroma of cherry and quite a bit of sourness. Flavor is NOT sour, however - light, easy drinking cherry here. Very refreshing.

OK folks lets take this for what it is. When you looked at the bottle and saw ale brewed with cherry juice. Did you think you would get a thick full bodied beer that tasted like an IPA or a Porter? It is what it is and for a nice fruity drink this one is just fine. Very smooth slightly creamy cherry drink that could very easily be sold as a soda. the bottle is very attractive and I have never had a Sam Smith that did not taste good. Sam makes one hell of a beer and pretty much tells you what is in it. So for all you low scorers, why dont you stick to the beer you like. Score a beer for what it is and not what you like. You bunch of biased beer drinkers need to wake up and be open minded. This was not my favorite type of beer but for a cherry beer it is very good and probably the best I have ever had. Much better than Kasteel. Hell I dont even need a piece of Big Red after this one. "Just Drinking a CHeerwine Boss, Just a CHeerwine." For those of you who dont know cheerwine is a soft drink bottled in Salisbury, NC. Have a good beer dri nking day.

Barreras (971) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Pours a dark wine color with a cherry aroma. Taste is a marachino cherry, with a wine aftertaste. A good fruit beer with no frills.

First pop of the cap is full of fresh cherry aroma. I actually noticed a fruit fly flying about the rim of my glass after I poured. Reddish brown in color. A thin white head with a splash of pink dissipates quickly. It has a bittersweet cherry taste, not quite what I expected from its smell.Itís a light beer with light carbonation, makes for a good session beer. Not a bad brew, definitely not my favorite, but Iíll take it over a Sam Adams Cherry Wheat any day.

stravale (2075) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle from Top Cellar, Edinburgh [010913]
Cherry red, clear, frothy off white head, nice colour
Aroma - Swizzels cherry sweets, nothing less. quite an artificial nose
Taste - Liquid cherry sweets, slight hint of the beer, less sweet than the undrinkable strawberry, but Iím not a big fan of cherry flavours bit this was quite OK, rather one dimensional though
Palate - Medium carb, sweet palate, cherry sweet. FInish as main favour, soft sweet fruity finish
Overall - Its #3 for me out of the fruit beers

Bottle. Clear look, reddish burgundy color. Thin light pink head. The smell is heavy cherry, fruit, slight tartness. Just cherry fruit tartness. Ok but just tart cherry going on.

Not a great fruit beer, but refreshing enough during these dog days of summer. Cherry flavor comes through on high, but it is a little medicinal. Has a nice bite--okay.
