I don't get the cherry or dark fruit in the flavor that the label mentions. Maybe a little in the aroma. Does pour a red-orange with very good flavor imparted by the rye as advertised. Very carmely with a crisp bite at the end. The yeast and rye together are very nice in the smell and taste. I get a little of the same malt/grain taste that the Denver Pale Ale has. This was bottled in Oct. of '13, but still very good. Will look for fresh this fall. Well done. Overall 3.75 conservatively. Great Divide continues to produce a solid lineup.
