3/5  rDev -17.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Poured a reddish-orange body that really glowed...the head was about one finger and white in color...nice retention until it slowly fell to a small ring...decent lacing

S - The first aroma I detect is actually that of sweet malts...the cherry does not come out until the beer settles...the cherries smell sweet and fresh...pretty much like the puree that's described on the label

T - Pretty one dimensional here...cherry flavors are throughout...although the pale malts do add a little bit of depth to the flavor...the cherries are sweet at first but they do present a subtle tartness...it's almost as if there is a slight hop tingle in the finish

M - Medium bodied...has some lightness to it but the cherry puree gives in some body...the tartness doesn't last long...carbonation

This one was kind of different, the cherries are definitely there but theres somehting that is just different for me, if you like cherries you will probably enjoy this

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - reddish iced-tea color, pinkish cap is a bit watery but with some worthy legs of lace.

Aroma - tart cherry aroma, soft with an interesting cinnamon edge.

Taste - definitely a sweeter, almost cidery beer. A few metallic noted outta the gate. A nice tart bite on the swallow, Michigan cherries of course. Slightly oxidized on the aftertaste, but the sample is aged a little beyond what I would recommend. Still finishes tasty, tart, and dry.

Mouthfeel - crisp and refreshing, again reminiscent of a cider. Average body a good fit for the style.

Overall - good spring/summer beer, provided you like cherries. Not as stately as Quelque Chose, but certainly more sessionable.

Per label : "Malt Beverage brewed with cherry puree."

The aroma is a sweet cherry scent. Pours a headless rose red and slightly cloudy. Looks like a black cherry soda with less carbonation! The taste is more of a wine cooler than an ale! Cherry is bold and upfront, faint grain on the back. I noted a sediment on the bottom of bottle post pour. If this were a BMC brew it would be called a "malternative".
That being said, I liked it very much for what it is. A nice fruit flavored drink!
