3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hint of metal in the aroma, lots of cherry and berry. Lovely colour. Teensy bit of hops. Smell of crisp, sweet malt.
The flavours are quite sweet, and very full of cherry! Flavours remind me of a lot of other fruit also.
Clean and refreshing, but possibly too sweet. Some nice tangy acidity in there also, I like it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 37.5 cl at 3 små rum, Göteborg, on February 5, 2016.
Clear brown color, small tan head. Sweet, almond paste, cherry scent. Sweet, cherries, light tart, some cherry seed/pip/stone taste, also tart cehrry to apples. Cherry aftertaste. Medium to fizzy mouthfeel, very low bitterness, but thereis some, likely more from cherry skin and stone than from hops?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle - Red pour with a big cherry aroma. It’s sweet with a lot of cherry flavor. A lot. It seems like a natural flavor though and it’s good and full. Slight tartness. It’s quite enjoyable, really.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Donkerrood bier met weinig schuim. Geur: zoet, ingelegde krieken. Smaak: zeer zoet, Maraschino kersen! Matige koolzuurprikkel Afdronk: kunstmatige (ersatz) suiker. Te serveren aan mensen die geen bier maar zoet en kunstmatig lusten. Zonde van de Bacchus!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, shared with Gripp brothers and others. Purplish pink, lively pink head. Aroma is big black cherry fruit, a bit of cork. Cherry juice palate, quite sugary actually, with just a kiss of tartness/light sourness. Too sweet for my taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample from a 37.5cl bottle (26 IX 2015), shared with De Meetjeslandse Bierproevers. I didn’t expect the beer to be this good. The view is nice too: Black and red coloured, with a yellow to brown foam. The nose has lots of chewing gum, cherries, raisins and dextrose. Making the flavours a bit artificial. Yet it is not a bad starter. With a medium sweetness and light sourness, this is a good sour red to drink along. The texture is creme-like, with a soft carbonation. Pretty nice beer.

Reddish amber with a decent beige covering.

Medium bodied, fine carbonation, a tarte fruit edge finally comes into play at the curtain call.
Wats is this ? My first sour red ? Way to sweet ... fruit bier garbage juice !

@ Bryssel 15-10-30: Riktigt sött med mycket körsbär, men även lite skollim. Lätt att dricka men inte fantastisk gott

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
26th September 2015
Bottle at the Fiddler brewpub, Den Haag. Hazy deep cherry red beer, big fluffy pink head. Cherry - kirsch nose. Palate is airy and mildly crisp. Taste follows the nose adding jammy cherry, sweet cherry and marzipan. I found this pretty drinkable but other will have furrowed brows and mutters about sweetness.
