From the 550 ml. embossed bottle. Sampled on May 15, 2014.

It poured a slight cloudy reddish-amber with a decent beige head that fades after a few moments. It has a nice beer appearance.

Tart cherries and cherry juice are the most abundant scent on the nose but at the same time I do clearly pick up a little yeast and malt in the background.

The mouthfeel is in the medium range but it is heavier than I expected it to be. Smooth too.

Cherry fruit flavors with a tart finale. Cherries are one of my favorite fruits so unlike some fruit beers I have a higher tolerance for cherry beers. It was a welcome beverage on a warm night like tonight.

Picked this one up because Samuel Smith seems to be my favorite brewery and I also tend to like fruit beers, and I had not tried this one yet. Plus, it was priced at $3.44 for 550, perfect. Great looking beer with the dark color and an interesting pinkish head, result of the cherry I am sure. Smells more cherry than beer, which isn't all bad. Taste is similar to the smell, more of a cherry juice than beer, but absolutely delicious. Absolutely perfect with salsa and chips. I really like this a lot and at that price I am going to swing by and grab a few more to keep in the fridge for hot days when I want a beer, and sweet. It will be an alternative to their organic chocolate as desert beer. Plus, at that cost it is a great value. If you like fruit beer you will love this, if not, then still worth a try I would think.

Samuel Smith - Samuel Smith's Organic Cherry Fruit Beer, poured into a Lawson's tulip.

Look - Pours a hazy dark pink/ruby with a small pinkish white foamy head that dissipates quickly. Some lacing. This resembles many of the fruit lambics I have had, in a good way.

Smell - Sweet and tart cherry with a touch of booze, at least I can tell it's going to have a "beerishness" to it.

Taste - Tart and full cherry flavor, super concentrated, truly a cherry ale!

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with low carbonation. Rests tart, a sipper but quite tasty.

Overall - This is terrific, no artificial BS here. It's certainly a heavy brew, not really light and refreshing, but it definitely captures real cherry flavor and presents it quite well.
