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

Tasted like a scotch ale at first taste. Cherries came through in later sips. Very strong but drinkable. A good sipping beer if you feel like getting a good buzz but not getting full. Definitely a nice change. Appearance is like a red ale with very little head.

the cherry chimp is a weird one, fruity and wheat based, strong, maybe unnecessarily so. pink to red hued and quite sweet, almost gummy on the palate, and lasting a little longer than i need it to on the teeth and tongue. carbonation is nice though, and its not overly booze in taste, which i guess could be the appeal for some of these downtown bars where the dudes get predatorial and the chicks seem to like it. in a craft beer context it doesnt survive even basic scrutiny, although i like the concept. longer fermentation would be helpful, or maybe just a more hearty strain. the wheat malt is big enough to show through the fruit in flavor, which i like too, but the residual sugar is far to high to make this a drinkable beer for me. i do like that the blue moon line is expanding to include some less conventional stuff though, and with the name recognition nationally, it should turn some fringe beer people into craft drinkers, which is a great service to our craft. for that i commend it, but i dont want another one.
