UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 ABV - 5.0.
.Appearance: Clear gold. No head. Visible streams of bubbles revealing a subtle, yet present carbonation.
.Aroma: Black cherry, but not fresh, more like a candy or a flavored medicine.
.Taste: Not authentic tasting at all. It's like a black cherry syrup flavor you would find in a soda. Taste like a Ludens cough drop.
.Mouthfeel: Syrupy, not crisp. Medium in both carbonation and body. It's ok actually.
.Bottom Line: Would I drink this? The answer is yes. It's not terrible, just not high quality. On a hot day why not. floridafrog (1) - - AUG 24, 2017 does not count

Draft at The Irving Inn (Rahway). Poured a clear golden yellow color with quick fading fizzy white head. Aroma and taste of black cherry soda and sparkling apple juice. Sweet, but pretty tasty. TequilaReader (54) - Brick, New Jersey, USA - OCT 29, 2016

Comes in a clear straw color with minimal effervescence and a tiny bit of suspended sediment.
The aroma is weak. You get some cherry sweetness, artificial and cough-syrup-like, cloyingly sweet, with perhaps a touch of the cider itself behind it.
Fortunately the taste is a bit better. It’s still a touch too sweet, but not cloying as the nose suggests. The black cherry here tastes almost genuine. The cider backbone is subtle, sweet, red apple-esque, nondescript.
The palate is very light, but fortunately not quite watery. Carbonation is almost nonexistent, and would probably benefit from a bit more.
Overall, it’s an okay cider. It’s not unbearably sweet, but more than one or two would probably give me a stomach ache. I’d recommend it to beginner cider drinkers or malt beverage fans. Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Has a dark cherry aroma. Taste is a dark cherry cider with some sugar. Hard for me tonight past all that added sugar thomashall (1606) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - AUG 27, 2016
12oz bottle shared by Bvery. Clear golden pour. Huge black cherry bomb aroma. Taste follows, very sweet. My kind of sour! tmoreau (4818) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 6, 2016
On tap at Bigby’s Pour House in Addison, IL. dispensed to a tulip showing a slightly hazed, golden hue, with a modest layer of quickly diminishing, white head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was sweet & fruity, with expressive, cough drop-like notes of dark cherry. Light to medium bodied, with okay spritz to the carbonation, the taste was sweet, apple & black cherry, with a moderate tartness. Close to cloying, but a tasty, aperitif-like cider, nonetheless.

Strong cherry aroma, with a caramely hint behind it. Dark pour, but probably not as dark as you’d expect. Still on the more golden side, rather than brown. Tart-- the cherry really punches through to the tongue. Long finish.
