3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Authentic cherry beer made with actual fruit instead of the extracts and sugar overload one would expect. Loose, yellowish head and deep ruby red colour, hazy. Fruit acidity, obvious sour cherry, impressions of plum and redcurrant, caramel malt base, bit bready, spicy yeastiness, above average hop bitterness in the finish (for the style); in all, a fascinating play of bitter, sweet and sour, perhaps not completely coming together, but complex in any case.

On tap @ Haandfest 2014 as Kerasus 2014. A cool looking really amber purple colored one. No head to write home about. Smells tartish and I get lots of nice red sour fruity tones mixed with a good quality red wine vinegar. Some "grillkrydder" also. Smells nice. Quite sharp on the lemons this! Sour green apples detected immediately. Soft oily in the mouth and it’s really gentle on the carbonation bubbles. Actually quite good this, but a bit disturbing with the "grillkrydder" thing. Ends with traces of slightly sourned cherries and fruity strawberries. 24.05.2014
