A very disgusting beer. Not balanced at all. A lot of tart flavor, but that's about it. The cherry flavor doesn't complement the beer at all, and it is probably only good for the beer enthusiasts who like to show their ability to withstand whatever nasty flavors they can (because they are "manly").

Presentation: 12 oz. brown bottle, served in a tulip glass.

Appearance: One finger head that stays for a while. Great lacing that covers the whole glass. Clear, very dark amber color, almost brown. A reddish hue seeps through when held up to the light.

Smell: Big cherry smell, nothing else comes through.

Taste: The tart cherry flavor dominates, just like in the nose with some malt sweetness and faint alcohol notes.

Mouthfeel: A bit cloying but not too much. Medium bodied and creamy with medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid and well executed brew where the cherries are the stars of the show. It's a bit cloying though, so this is an "every once in a while" type of beer.

A - Dark body, largely opaque, with brick red highlights. Light tan head, minimal, fading quickly like soda, but with a persistent ring and small bubble lacing.

S - Strong cherry note in the foreground, a touch of wood, and a coarse ground wheat core suggests multigrain toast.

T - The cherry is front and forward, with a bit of sweetness in the middle, and a tart finish. The flavor is thoroughly integrated and delicious.

M - Brisk carbonation, perhaps a bit aggressive, with a finish that lingers with tart acidity.

O - A very well designed beer, blended to clear cloying notes with great fruit flavors. Tasty and delicious.

Pretty sweet cherry taste and aroma. Taste was balanced with a nice tartness. Also in the taste was a foundation of malt taste, that may have carried some wood cask flavor. Smooth and sparkly. Quite dark with a brown color and some cloudiness. Very small head. Overall a little fizzy and a little too sweet, but pleasing overall.
Served at Happy Gnome.

Whats not to like? Its a little sweet, a little tart, a little cherry-ish and a little light. At 5.6% I could swig these down all day and feel great about it. This is a stellar beer and one that I always love seeing on a taplist.

Now this is kinda interesting. Pure impulse made me grab one. Dark, dark brown with the slightest tinges of red. An off white, almost tan head sits a top, hardly going anywhere. Spotty lacing. Smells somewhere between cherries and something old and musty, but a good old and musty. Taste is on a fine line between tart cherries, an almost artificial cough syrup cherry and earthy, old leather of sorts. An interesting blend that almost works out. Just tart enough to tickle the tongue but not overpowering. Finishes dry and the cherry lingers. Glad I tried as it's good but not something I'd buy a pack of.

This is solid for a non BA brew especially at $2.50 a bottle! Next to Alexander rodenbach easy. Slightly sweet slightly tart. Good amount of cherry and not overbearing. Maybe has some Brett?

Where are cherries prevelant? Washington? Ok. And who’s famous from Washington? I have no idea. But if you know of someone, pretend that that famous person picked a bunch of cherries to brew this bad boy - cuz it’s heavy on the cherry like Jackie Gleason is heavy on the scale. Other than that, like Robert DeNiro’s career, it’s just alright.

Peace.
