Lots and lots of cherries in this. Not a beer for every day but would be nice with some dry cheese for dessert. Had on tap in GR. MereLikesBeer (195) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2009
I had this at Founders Fest 2009 with my friend BeerBaron617. I can’t really see why it has such a low score on RB, maybe just because there are so few ratings at the moment. I must say that I like this beer a lot. It was a pretty pinky red color with a whitish head. It clearly had the aroma of cherries, as well as taste, and it was really really sweet. Pretty tasty though. :) badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2008
this was brewed due to the increase in raspberry prices, and may become somewhat of a "substitute" beer for the fruit lovers...pours cherry red with nice carbonation and white head...aroma of tart cherry puree, and its flavor is no let down! very tart and slightly puckering, their cherry ale captures the true essence of a tart cherry. superb for a fruit beer SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Growler from the brewpub. This poured a deep pink in color with aromas dominated by ripe cherries...as expected. In the mouth it was well-balanced with good concentration of flavor. It held off of being sweet and came out as a very nicely balanced beer that was easy to sit and drink on the beach. Sudennorthstar (17) - Michigan, USA - JUL 31, 2009
This beer smells like a cherry pie and looks like red Kool-Aid. The taste is almost too cherry heavy, but it was certainly manageable. The color is great and left a slightly sour/tart taste in the mouth, which worked great with the burger I was eating but tasted not so good with onion rings. I would recommend it to others but it’s not an everyday beer. You might get diabetes from it.

On tap at the ’08 MBG festival. This is a very red beer with a fizzy white head and a very fresh cherry nose. Very fresh tart cherry flavors. It’s like a cherry pie, crust and all. White sugar sweetness. This is a nice fruit beer. dalekliz (923) - New Jersey, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Growler, thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing it! Pours a clear rosy-orange with a very bubbly head. Aroma is crisp, of cherry, malt, yeast, hops, and citrus. Taste starts with sweet and sharp malt before picking up tart pie cherries and a hint of citrus. Lingering tart and sweet cherry-malt flavors. Tasty.

Lighter-bodied with high carbonation,and a dry finish.Very good. IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle. Pour was thick and redish with a white fizzy head. Aroma was of strong sweet cherries with a lot of sweet. Flavor was dominated by more sweet cherry, a light wheat flavor, and a semi-dry and lightly tart finish. Overall a tasty brew. Maybe a bit sweet. VAAC (86) - Middlebury, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2010
No head at all, none. Reddish gold appearance, smells like fermented cherries (duh?). Whoever said it smelled like a cherry pie... come on, dude. Tastes of carbonated cherry juice. Some may dislike this, but the fact that the alcohol is coveredup sowell is nice. Sweet and tart, like drinking dessert. Rather sticky, decent carbonation, the tartness lingers. I like this, seal of approval.
