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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - deep ruby red, kind of purple, with a fizzy light brown, pinkish head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma of black cherry, a little roasted malt and yeast. Taste starts off with sour black cherries followed by some toasty notes, hints of clove and cinnamon with a spicy and sour, dry finish. Medium, dry body with high carbonation. Good stuff.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375 ml bottle as a spontaneous purchase from Prisma supermarket. Sad to see so much paper go to waste for a small bottle like this... BB 05/2016. Pours a very deep dark red with a big slightly pinkish-beigeish top. Nose is dark cherry (yoghurt) with a bit of dusty spiciness, later on I get vanilla too. Modest fruity sweetness initially - was expecting worse because of the added sweeteners - then sour and somewhat bitter. Medium bodied, smooth on the palate with average carbonation and thankfully not a very sticky-syrupy mouthfeel. Finishes quite dry with some bitterness and cherry sourness. Low acidity. I’m really no fan of cherry beers but this one I can tolerate because the sweetness is not overpowering, it’s not like some of the terribly lemonady Lambic Krieks I’ve had. Something bothers me about this though.

37.5cl bottle. Dark reddish brown colour with a small thin pinkish head that quickly vanishes. Cherries, berries and spices in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is a bit light, what is not bad, with some sour notes in the finish. Overall, an enjoyable beer.
