3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown body with a medium off white head with decent retention. Has a very malty aroma, lots of fruits especially cherries. A little hop character, caramel. Sweet, with bitter notes in the background. Dry finish, decent carbonation. Tastes very similar to certain Belgian krieks. You do not notice its strength as your drink it!

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark clear golden beer with frothy/sticky but short lived off white head. Rotten apple and yeasty aroma. Low carbonation but still a good fizz on the tongue. Flavour has candy sweetness, dandelion and burdock, dark malt, slight medicinal quality. Complex yet well balanced beer. Not too rich. Finish is a brown sugar coated fruit salad.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark copper colour with a frothy white head. Medium body. Big fruity / floral aroma. You have to look for it but the licquorice is there - at the back of the nose and the taste. The sweet jammy fruits dominate the flavour with a hint of spice and almond - the beer equivalent of a Bakewell tart. Very smooth and probably too sweet to have more than one.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big beige head. Clear deep reddish brown body. Perfumy wild berry
and fruit aroma with candy and chewing gum notes. Sweetish perfumy
artificial red berry and fruit taste with oily notes. Mid-bodied.
Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dry metallic perfumy red berry aftertaste with
spicy green apple notes. I really don’t like this style of perfumy,
artificial ales, but there’s no denying it’s well made, and something
about the sweet fruitiness appeals to me, even through all that
perfume. (0.5l bottle, from Waitrose, Canary Wharf, London.)

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Dark reddish chestnut with thick lasting white head strong fruity aroma unfortunately a mixture of black currant and cola bottles. Taste is far too sweet and it is a sugary confectionery type sweetness. Some bitterness in the finish. Got it wrong guys sorry.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from, er, somewhere. Dark chestnut brown with a long-lasting head. Nice. Aroma is cough medicine and Haribo Starmix. Taste is...odd. Restrained candy sweetness, like the aforementioned Haribo dissolved in water. Tastes like it should be bright pink. This does not taste like beer. Sorry, not a fan. Too perfumed, too fruity.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent head and a beautiful dark red, almost purple colour makes this beer stand out, fruity aroma as well. The taste is very strong, almost blackcurrant but sweeter tones also, most likely the liquorice advertised on the bottle. Taste is a bit too much for me, but those into fruity brews might like this more.
