4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fra flaske på Mandag i annen, Cardinal april-15: etter mange strålende gode fatøl fikk vi servert en ganerenser med mørkerød farge og kort skum. Vidunderlig intens aroma og smak av kjøttfulle, sure kirsebær. Elegant syrlighet med sprudlende frisk ettersmak. Med sitt innhold av 35% kirsebær (iflg. etiketten) kan den fort inngå som en av de anbefalte fem om dagen. Eminent drikkbar, som champagne for ølhunder, og en bauta å navigere etter.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Cardinal. Pours dark reddish with a tiny layer of bubbles. Inviting aroma of meaty, fresh sour cherries, this would be like it smells in heaven on a spring day, or maybe not. Taste is also full of those red high hanging cherries, fresh sourness, a wonderful elixir this one.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Colour was very cloudy, lacked flavor compared to other cherry beers. Head went in seconds, fizz also lasted seconds... Disappointed

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle from 05-2014. Pours ruby with a fizzy pink head that dissipates in an instant, but leaves a thin lacing. Aroma is definitely cherry with lambic yeast, barnyard, a hint of vinegar and mint. Light body, slick feel, sparkling carbonation. Taste is deliciously tart and refreshing with sour cherry (both flesh and stone), lemon and a hint of sharp cheese towards the dry finish. Pure lambic!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color is like a pastel tint of red, with a head that is pinkish. The head diasappears quickly, with a lot of fizzing. The aroma is sour, but is somewhat softened by the cherries. The taste is also sour. The cherries give it a nice taste, whitout making it a sweet beer. Carbonation is relatively high. Nice beer.
