madmitch76 (14711) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2010
5th March 2010. Pre ZBF. Cloudy dark red beer. Some sour cherry on the nose. Sharpiish dry palate. Refreshing tartness without getting puckery. The cherry is there but not overwhelming - just a nice crisp prescense. Very refreshing beer.

Beautiful red-dark amber color; medium sized compact head. Aroma of cherry stones, then soap, light vinegar, caramel and cream; very interesting. The body is very thin, the mouthfeel dry and acidic; there is some light, dry caramel flavor, with light cherry flavor, some vinous character, fruits (grapes and plums). The final is a bit astringent and sour, dry, with light tones of roasted nuts.
