Cheri Tart is an easier drinking sour ale, with a light but noticeable sour cherry aroma and flavor. This is one of few CIB beers we recommend drinking extra cold. The original version of this beer was a lambic made with cherries picked by us off a neighbor’s trees, due to short supply the beer was changed to a Sour Ale and contains no cherries. A great summer time beer due to it’s refreshing tartness. Available in bottles and Draught.

Could really taste the sourness of the beer. I was not a fan of the sour ale, nor the disapointement learning it did not contain real cherries but decided to give it a try anyway. I tasted this beer at a beer tasting event, Brrfest, in Coralville, IA

This tastes kinda like tart apple juice with cherries in it. Honestly, not bad at all. It’s a bit sweet and undercarbonated so not terribly drinkable but this is frankly better than most Cantillion for example. Sour beer nerds are the worst.

Murky amber body, medium to large off-white head, soapy lacing. Plastic, metal, rancid cherries, and week-old tomato soup. Medium bodied, rough.

This was our "yard beer", by yard beer I mean everyone that got some pretty much tossed it all over the yard just so they didn’t have to smell or taste it for fear of suicide. The only beer I didn’t bother to rate but it was gross, acid, mothball, and shit

Bottle at Ryan’s. Pours a deep hazy Amber with thick off white lacing. Aroma is funky hardware store, tomatoe soup and sour fruit. Mouthfeel is medium to full with awful chemical character, tomatoe soup and prunes and raisins.

Bottle during RBWG. Pours a cloudy red copper with small off white head. The aroma is hairspray and plastic. Medium mouth with light tart cherry and plastic. Best cib beer on the trip.

A dark cherry body momentarily supports a fizzing, fading, frothy, medium-light khaki head, which very nearly achieves complete dissipation

Aromas and flavors of tart-sour-juicy red, orange, yellow, and blue fruit with a touch of pure sourness complimented by cool minty accents over a mellow layer of wine marinated beef on a mildly spritzy, smooth, medium-light body offering juicy strawberry-cherry-blueberry-orange residuals with balanced sweet-tart character

Another CIB beer which seems to be the victim of reviewers allowing others’ statements to guide their own words, I felt this was an enjoyable brew with well-balanced, acidic, sweet and sour character

Bottle forced upon us but Prufrock, or I should say, bottle nicely gotten for me to tick by Chris. Just like expected, its poorly made high octane autolysis with cherry hints on the nose. The flavor is less autolysis and actually some decent sourness and a slightly fresh cherry finish. If the beer was all like the very end of the flavor that would be da bomb. Thanks again Chris.

Bottle pour split at a tasting event. Pours a dark ruby red with a thin patchy head. Bit of a dark fruit aroma. Decently sour right away. Overly sweet cherry flavor with an almost sweet wine like finish. Not what I expected, but definitely doesn’t deserve the hate it is getting. Decent sour beer.

Tasted on 2/8/14 from a bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, "thanks" to the Nielsens for sharing. Pours hazy brown with a thick beige head that leaves rocky lace. The nose is sweet malty brown sugar, sweet maraschino, and grenadine. The flavor is oxidized, but overly sweet with grenadine, brown sugar, and maraschino cherry, only a bit of tartness at all. The body is full with average, smooth carbonation, and a long oxidized maraschino cherry finish.

Sample @ RBWG Grand Tasting. Thanks to the Nielsens for the garbage. Amber pour with a small head. Pretty farty, unappealing nose. Artificial berry concentrate. Taste is similar. Soupy and muddled. Not outright terrible, but fairly unappetizing.
