madmitch76 (13431) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2009
8th June 2008. A little bit sour with a tart well blended cherry undertone. Not so much a cherry beer as a tart fruity ale.

Leighton (9883) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2010
Tap at Blind Tiger. A bit underrated I would say. Pours a dark amber with a creamy, off-white head. Lots of lacing. A light aroma with notes of sweet malt and bread. More sweeness in the flavor. A nice fruit character: Some cherry and strawberry, along with mild tartness in the finish and whip cream. Medium bodied, a little tart and with mild bite. Mild malt caramel and fruity aftertaste. Nice. Refreshing. Crisp.

Lubiere (9439) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2007
A rather hazey rosey amber ale with a thin white head. A pleasantly sweet light cherry aroma with citrusy notes and some caramel. In mouth, a sour wheat beer with notes of maraschino cherries. Refreshing. 1$ bottle at Spirithaus, May 2007.

daknole (8559) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Bottle from Wooniski Bev in Burlington, VT. Pours a redish/amber coor with a medium head. Aroma is malty and some fruit. I think I can smell cherries, but I dont know if I would have known if blind folded. Taste is a bit tart and certainly has some neat cherry flavor. I dont think this is world class, but it is better than it has been rated. Certainly a fun beer to try.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2007
Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Light pale pink tinted brew. Lightly fruity aroma with a hint of sweet cherry. Nasty band-aid aroma all over this. Flavour is thin and the palate is watery. A bit of dry wheatiness. Light acidity on the back… don’t even bother with this one.

On tap at Hop Devil Grill. Getting more dunkel and dark beer taste, did not know cherry and did not get cherry. Creamy head with lace.

12 ounce bottle from Wine and Beer Westpark in Richmond, VA. Pours a clear cherry red, appropriately enough. Medium head with moderate head retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet cherries with grainy bread notes. Taste is cherries and green apple with a bitter finish. Medium bodied.
