pepsican (1419) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 17, 2012
Oh god, this sucks. This beer really sucks. I had two bottles of this from I donít know how long ago. I tried to rate one a few weeks ago, forgot it on top of my fridge, and it blew up within 12 hours. The second one gushed everywhere, lame. Tastes and smells likes socks and a red sucker. Paint thinner finish. Gross.

yobdoog (1888) - Woodridge NY, New York, USA - APR 13, 2009
Slightly medicinal. Aroma not that strong. Seak on the fruit essence. Nice and bubbly white fluffy head. Slight funky and a little tart. Very dry and bretty.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Bottle. Courtesy of kmweaver. Thanks Ken! Blushing amber pour. Rocky off white colored head. Aroma is spicy cherries, funky yeast, berries and dust. Taste is light cherry, some tartness, funky yeast, and dusty cobwebs. Body is light but very effervescent and bubbly. Ends with more cherry and cherry tartness, light spice, funk and dust. Meh.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2008
I got this in a trade and I think this bottle was bad. Poured a nice reddish color with a crazy fluffy head. Beer was just not right. 2 sips and down the drain it went. I am assuming this bottle was bad so I am going to rate it down the middle.

radagast83 (4126) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy amber color. Aroma is a slightly sweet and tart cherry one. Flavor is sweet fruit, berry, which is slightly tart. It is okay, but I wouldn’t say it’s something I’d search for to try again, at least not if there are other beers available at Shenandoah that I prefer.

argo0 (11181) - Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2008
(12oz bottle) Large off-white head atop cloudy amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, spicy, some cherry. Taste is medium sweet, dusky/spicy, some cherry. Some cherry astringency, lightly tart, minimal cherry sweetness. Light-medium body, light effervescence. Strange to call an extract beer a lambic, perhaps even stranger that this wasnít the disaster one might expect it to be with such credentials.

kramer (4684) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2008
12 oz bottle, shared by kmweaver. Pours a hazy amber body with a fizzy white head. A little cherry in the nose, but still the ever present band aids like the other two. Some minimal cherry flavor and slightly sweet, this is the best of the bunch, but it isnít saying too much. A little bit more of a lambic character to it than the others. Mouthfeel mirrored the other two I had, a little doughy with moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, a little bit of an improvement over the strawberry and boysenberry, but still glad I didnít have to put down a whole bottle by myself.

auerbrau (3126) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - APR 6, 2008
12oz Bottle, courtesy to kmweaver. Enteric, rubbery nose again. Bad yeast products. Pours a rosy peach, with off-white head. Flavor first carries a little light cherry sweetness, nothing to really sink oneís teeth into but it helps obfuscate the underdeveloped funk. Acidic. Ugly. This is a little cleaner, but the plastic, dust and bad bugs carry through. Slightly better than the other renditions.

ryan (3187) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - APR 5, 2008
Courtesy of kmweaver. Hazy light amber with a small off-white head. The aroma is plasticy, spicy phenolic yeast with some cherry. The flavor is fairly dry, lightly tart with cherry, plastic, dust, and dough. Medium body is rough with moderate carbonation.

hopdog (8521) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2008
12oz bottle acquired in trade with kmweaver (thanks!). Poured a medium and lightly hazy amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of cherries and yeast. Tastes of lighter cherries and some bready pie crust. Lightly sweet with a light tart and dry finish.
