Draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy orange-pink color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of cherries, citrus, wheat. The taste is cherries, citrus, wheat and unfortunately the cherries take on a medicinal quality. Medium bodied, soft carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale pink-orange pour with a thick white head. The aroma is lightly spicy and a wheaty. A touch of soft tartness and a little bit of cherry fruitiness. Light pepper and a touch of soft fruitiness. There is a little bit of stone fruit apricot and clove character. There’s also a touch of soft spiciness on the finish. There’s a little bit of light wheatiness on the finish. Dry fruity finish. It’s got a great combination of cherry fruitiness and yeasty spice. I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Alibi Room, pours an opaque vibrant orange with a small beige head. Aroma of medium potency cherries upfront, with some wheaty notes in there. Flavour brings out cherries, wheat and perfumey floral notes, all balanced well. Definitely superior to the boring Ephemere Apple. Well-balanced and wheaty and fruity.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2013-09-01. Hazy red amber body with a nice foamy white head. 3++ Smooth average plus body is effervescent. 3+ Flavour is sweetly fruity cherry with tart cherry notes. Aroma is similar, simple sweet fruity cherry with light tart accents. Enjoyable. The fruit dominates over the subtle base beer but it is rather nice. Bottle from the LCBO shared by a friend.

Snifter on tap at Keystone in Hyde Park. Totally hazy sort of pinkish amber color. Thin off-white head. Medium body. Lighter, sort of soft, smooth carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Light sticky. Great cherry aroma, some creme. Some ropes of lace. More sweet taste, light tart. Nice long cherry and creme aftertaste. Very nice cherry fruit beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with Grippitis and Parksy. Very hazy orange colour, with a pinkish-tinged effervescent head. Perfumey, powdery cherry character compliments light yeat and even lighter malts. The finish is surprisingly bitter, adding a welcome dryness. Light and refreshing, more floral than sweet. I liked it.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Tap at Town Hall Lanes. Mostly clear light yellow-gold pour with a small white head. Perfumy cherry aroma. Light crisp palate. Taste is a bit artificial. Just okay.
