Bottle. Maroon pour with a tall, foamy pink head. Aroma is candied cherry, cherry pits, and maraschino cherries. Taste is sweet with cherry, light berry, fruit preserves and light grain. Body is light and bubbly with soft tartness. Ends with more cherry notes, candy, light grains and fruit preserves. I think this ended up being the best of the three Samuel Smith fruit beers, IMHO.

jimhilt (2583) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Pours a five+ finger light pink head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Cloudy red/amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Cherry nose. Flavor is sweet cherry but not cloying, hops are hidden. Good session beer. $5.59 for a 550ml bottle from Manchester Wine and Liquors Manchester, CT.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2009
hazy orange color, pinkish, fluffy head, somewhat lacy. nose of cherries with a malty undertone. tart cherry flavor, not at all off-putting or cloying, some maltiness afterward. medium bodied, tart cherry finish which i was surprised to find i enjoyed. i think ill remember this one for relief from a scratchy throat. maybe ill come up with a cooking recipe for it. single bottle from liquor depot in monee.

NomDeBeer (414) - Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Taste is dominated by cherry cola. Very slight tartness in the finish, more would be nice. Fizzy and highly carbonated with a thin body. Not bad though, certainly drinkable.

Beerapprentice (207) - Hopatcong, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Pours a clear an amber reddish colour with a light creamy pinkish head. Aroma of sweet cherries and fruit juice. Flavour of cherry fruit juice, and a little malt flavor. I enjoyed the cherry flavor but theres not much else going on here. A little tartness wouldve helped.

Skinnyviking (9214) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle. High creamy and lasting pink head. Hazy orang red body. Powerful sweet malty cherry aroma with nutty notes. Astonishingly high carbonation. Acidic sweet cherry flavor with a short aftertaste.

harrisoni (17685) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2009
Bottle from some Sam Smiths pub in Peterborough. Red, orange colour, lasting beige head. Sweet cherry almond aroma, reminds me of a Bakewell Tart. I mean way too wweet. I cant believe all the sweetness comes from the fruit. Whereas the Raspberry had some interesting tartness, this is straight up cherryade with some almond to go with it. Not unpleasant, its a tasty alcopop. Rather good in fact in that way. The bottle lasted oh, about 3 minutes. but the rotting of my teeth lasted much longer. Would happily buy this for a girl such as Sim who likes sweet fruit drinks.

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2009
Bottle. Wheaty red pour, good aroma of sweet cherry and tons of carbonation. Flavor is some sweet cherry and not much else. A good beer, not overly sweet (which I liked), but not really worth the $6 asking price IMO.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 28, 2009
Hazy red pour with a large frothy pink head. Good head retention, streaky lace. Huge cherry bouquet. I like it. Flavor is very abundant in its cherry flavors, sweet cherry and tart cherry both abound, some gumball hiding in there, too. I can see where some might call the sweet cherry elements bordering on the artificial. If the beer were any sweeter or thicker, Id say cough syrup, but as it stands I find it just about right, especially as a cold dessert. Medium body, somewhat soft and soapy about the palate. Dry, zesty finish.
