Dark red body with a thick white head. Fair lacing. Bitter taste and aroma of cherries. Very tart. Too fruity of a beer for my taste. it was ok, but I won’t but it again.

Blah. Terrible beer! Aroma was metal and a hint of dark cherry. Pour was a nice enough deep dark crimson with a one finger off white head. Taste was very thin, watery and uneventful. Sour dark cherry is present but barely comes over the water. If this beer had less water flavor it would be in the 4s as the flavor hits on lambic territory- it’s just too faint to enjoy. Nice carbonation and no aftertaste. All in all a sloppy boring beer.

DialSquare (2605) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2010
12oz bottle from Market Square. Murky brown pour with thin dull tan head. Aroma is yeasty light cherry. Taste is a juicy malt and cherry mix. Slight sourness comes through late. Grainy mash vibe mixed in. Finishes up a tacky sticky sweet. Long pucker vibe. Strange. Not as horrific as the rates would suggest, but a bit muddled.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4895) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2010
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark red-orange color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma was caramel, nut, yeast and light notes of berry and pecan. The flavor was tart sour cherries, caramel, pecan, cream and yeast. The finish was short with tart berries prominent. Medium body. Interesting.

bottle pours pink with a medium white head. Aroma is floral with tart cherry. Flavor is grassy with pale malt and a fruity finish of tart pear and cherry.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 14, 2010
From bottle. Light sweet-tangy cherry aroma, not overpowering and kind of acidic. Mild hops, light malt sweetness. Fruity but dull. Medium amber-brown clear with a bit of reddish tint to it and some chill haze, topped with thin off-white lacing head. Medium bodied with medium carbonation and light carbonic acidity. Starts medium sweet with lots of tart cherry fruity flavor, light malt sweetness and some acidic carbonation tang. Finish is fruity with a bit of muted bitterness, but not hoppy. After is smooth with cherry notes and a bit of sweetness on the tongue. Not a bad ale.

TheHopster (791) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2010
(Bottle) So much more potential from a great brewer. Presented as frivolous ale, I expected a lighter, fruitier style. I wanted more fruit and deeper cherry flavor. Not bad...pleasant cherry finish. Not a chick beer.

Interesting ale. Cidery orange pour. Very strong tart cherry juice taste. Rated 8/14/08

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - APR 27, 2010
tap at Blind Tiger: unusual beer. musty and tart arouma. Citrus is puckering, cherries and berries. Bubbly carbonation and finishes dry. A bit overattenuated, I think, I’d like more sweetness.

sampled at dark lord day 2010. clear copper color, small tan head. nose of malt and cherries. flavor is pretty much the same. not very interesting or complex. probably a good drink if you have a raspy throat. my 1234th rating, accompanied by a sesame street counting video....
