An odd taste to be sure. Kind of reminds me of cherry powder candy...poured into a diluted sam adams.

Thats really all there is to say about it. I mean...if you want a beer that tastes kinda like cherries, this accomplishes that goal. But I can't really fathom why you would WANT to beer to taste like cherries.

Still, its passable on drinkability.

A: Golden/orange color, with about a half finger of head when poured. lace sticks around for a little while but eventually fizzles away

S: Traverse City cherries, oh yeah the good stuff. No hoppy smells here.. little sweet malt smell

T: Crisp and refreshing, sweet cherry bite with lots of cherry flavor with a medium amount of carbonation here.. cherry bready taste and feel at the end.. finishes smooth to me.

M: Refreshing.. Not too strong but just right. cleans right off the pallet with little lingering flavor..

Overall a great beer. Drink it year round if im not in the mood for a sam boston or a wild craft choice.. Easy to find wherever you are if your in a pinch and want something out of the ordinary.
