Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy red color with a large head. Good head retention. Aroma of cherries, citrus, herbal and vegetal notes and a bit of earthiness. The taste is tart cherries, cherry pie filling, herbal notes and faint caramel malts. Medium bodied. Nice.

Bottle during RBWG. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is cherry skin and funk. Medium mouth, tart cherry, light bready malt, lingering dry finish, very good.

daknole (10919) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Cloudy apricot orange pour, fluffy white head. Thanks to LtDan for the share! Good guy. Aroma is sour, some citrus sourness, lemons, sour cherries and unripe stone fruit. Flavor is certainly sour, cherries, yeasty funk, light vinegary notes. Pretty damn nice stuff!!

hopscotch (10761) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with no head. Fruity, funky, bready nose. Light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Tart, bready, bitter flavor. Finishes tangy, astringent, and then dry. Bottle courtesy of biggsbowler!

adnielsen (10573) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Bottle @ Stephens house, courtesy of Lukaduke (I believe). Thanks a bunch! Pours a somewhat hazy, bright orange appearance with a very small, off white head. Quite spicy, fairly floral, tangy pie cherry, somewhat funky, fairly yeasty aroma- not nearly as complex or interesting as Coolship Cerise Kind of juicy, tart, sort of like black cherry, slightly tart, pie cherry, slightly sour, kind of woody, toasty malty flavor. Not nearly as much going on as some as the Coolship releases.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 24, 2012
375mL thanks to LtDan. Pouring at RBSG Grand Tasting LA. Pours a full haze orange. Acid cut. Caramel nose with sweet, cherry pit and cherry pie. Rich with ripe phenols/tannins. Taste is tangy, sharp, just a tad medicinal. Very light lemon pulp, citric sourness. Palate is bubbly, seltzer. Pretty good still.

Pouring at the Saturday afternoon session of EBF. Pours a hazed amber with a thin white head. Caramel, soft acid and hay. Sweet caramel before big acid, a touch nutty and floral. Lingering acid on the finish. Didnt really get any cherry on this.
