Bottle, thanks kmweaver. Cloudy copper with a white head. Nose of pear, general fruitiness and an earthy character. Flavor has notes of light caramel, cherry, earthy hops and some tart fruitiness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

wickedpete (636) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - JAN 31, 2008
Thanks to Ken for this one. Golden appearance. Sweet aroma. Fruit is present, similar to apples more so than cherries. Warm sugar flavor, slightly tart fruit.

3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Hazy honey colored body. Mild tart cherry pastries in the nose, some yogurt yeast presence, some adjunct-like corn meal and some faint creamed cherries. Weird, midlly tart beer, with some rubber and burnt toast flavors that don’t sit too well.

argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 27, 2008
(22oz bottle, thanks kmweaver) Medium beige head atop lightly hazed amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, subdued cherry, light bread. Taste is medium sweet, cherry, butterscotch, light apple. Light-medium body.

22oz bottle, courtesy of moejuck. Thanks, Joe! Pours a murky, pink grapefruit color; white head with patchy lacing. Pleasant amounts of cherries and sugar in the aroma; not very dense, mostly cherry syrup. Medium mouthfeel: cherry syrup and sugar and an off fruit flavor; singular in its fruit character; a bit flabby in the mouth. Medium, cherry and sugar finish.

Provided by kmweaver. Hazy, light amber body with a small off-white head. The nose is lightly sweet with cherry, light caramel and some copper. The flavor is lightly sweet with cherry, cotton candy and dough. Medium body is spritzy with hight carbonation.

Silphium (3224) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Hazy orange-brown body, medium off-white head. Light bready aroma with subtle notes of cherry. Biscuity body; a concentrated effort reveals tart cherry, but no sweetness. A boring beer with boring cherry flavoring.

hopdog (13267) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2006
22oz bottle. Poured a medium and slightly cloudy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of mainly tart cherry pie filling and I’m also getting some oakiness. Tastes of cherries and sweet berries. I thought this had a decent cherry aroma but the flavors were a bit of a let down. Thinner body.

mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Bottle. Poured deep golden in color with a little tan head. Malty fruity aroma. More malty than cherry. Flavor is malty. There is really nothing to say about the beer. Not that good.
