Bottle at the Nook. Pours copper with a small, beige head. The aroma is distinctly black cherries, with notes of brown sugar, and saaz hops. The flavor is acidic sweetness, and mild bitterness. The palate is medium, crisp and clean. Overall, this is a surprisingly delicious fruity cream ale, with distinct fruit aroma without the typical cough syrup flavor. Well done.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Very little cherry and lots of dryness. Bitterness lurks throughout. I’ll pass on the next one. unclemike (3195) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Smell of cherry permeates when opened no head when poured color of hazy gold taste of cherries and malt slight chocolate no aftertaste overall a good fruit beer Nekronos (4213) - Xalapa, MEXICO - FEB 7, 2015
Interesting but not much special. Nice aroma and aftertaste of cherries and dark indeed in shape entirely. njmoons (59) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Pours a pinkish amber, looks a little odd, a finger or two of foam which dissapates quickly.
Smell of sweet cherry is present throughout the beer, pleasant but somewhat artificial (?)
Taste is a mild ale, the cherry flavor is in the aroma and very noticable overriding other flavors.
Finish is very nice, clean and crisp.
Overall a fun beer to try, but nothing I would get again.

On tap at Cole’s in Buffalo, NY. Drank it on recommendation of Ender from TBS. Interesting beer. Definitely fruity, a TON of cherry, and it even pours red. But it’s a thick beer, almost pulpy. Not clear and crisp like a normal fruit beer. For that, it was an interesting beer to try. Unfortunately, as with a lot of fruit beers, I can’t see myself drinking a ton of it. It was still a very cool try though. BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle. Pours hazy ruby with a large, fizzy ivory head, high retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is average malt (cookie, straw), light hops (herbal), and average esters (berry) with notes of cherry. Flavor is average malt (bread, cookie), light hops (herbal), and average esters (berry) with notes of cherry. Light body, low warmth and creaminess, high carbonation with a dry finish. jeremytoni (3085) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2010
From a bottle poured an amber color with a lot of head. Nice malty flavor with a light tart finish. Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Mystery beer at Green Dot Stables in Detroit, Michigan. Figured I’d give it a try... never heard of the beer or brewery before.
Well... I’m surprised this beer is classified as a cream ale. What? It’s the very definition of a fruit beer. The black cherry is on the front and back and everywhere in between. It’s in the smell, and it’s all around. The aftertaste is somewhat tart and pretty sweet, with a malt body that reminds you that this is a beer and not some sort of a wine cooler. Make no qualms about it, this is a fruit beer. It’s not a beer with fruit juice added, it tastes like fruit juice with beer added ... take that as you will. It’s not an awful beer, but one was enough for me, and I doubt I could ever have more than two in a session. The dominance of the cherry makes this a super "girly beer". Some malt, lots of tart and sweet cherries. It’s not bad by any means, but it’s far from great. ttoadee (1659) - Austin, Texas, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Hazy tan pour, quick white head. Nose is yeast and cherries. Bittersweet. Middle is sour and refreshing, hint of vinegar. Finish is acidic. May be an accident, but this tastes like decent cherry lambic from my tongue. Try it, see what you think.
