3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Jumbo. Crystal clear dark red pour with thick pinkish white foam. Aroma of cherries, really intense and fruity, cherry jam, not at all spicy or vegetal, just bright cherry fruit with a light lemony tartness. Taste is sweet, all cherry juice, a bit syrupy actually, it gets a bit cloying. Not acidic at all (at least not more than regular fruit juice is), I get a light beery flavor towards the finish which came as a bit of a surprise. Palate is sweet, well carbed, medium bodied. Pretty fckin far from a fruit lambic, but not half as bad as I expected.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
The beer is a cherry red colour with a fluffy pink head, the colours do make it a bit hard to take this beer seriously! The aroma was not what I was expecting from something that is classified under Fruit Lambic on Ratebeer, there was lots of sweet cherry, a bit of caramel, fake cherry candy, a hint of sourness and a whiff of corn? The first sip was all sweetness, lots of sugar with a very artificial cherry candy flavour. The body is quite thin with lots of carbonation to the point of being unable to hold a sip in your mouth as it bubbles up fairly violently. As I progressed through the glass a sourness finally begun to build up in my mouth but it wasn’t anywhere near enough to counter the sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
OLD NOTES OCT 20, 2003 A sour cherry, almost grapey smell in the bottle, similar to a wine, again. Upon pouring into a glass it formed a thin foamy kind of head with a beautiful red body. This can’t be a beer! The flavour is quite a light but quite tart and sweet cherry flavour, with subtle hints of what I seems like grapes and strawberries. This beer reminds me of a red wine i’ve tried, just much lighter on the palate. Reminds me too much of a wine to take too seriously.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2014 Dark red cherry beer with a light brown tint. The cherry flavour is kept nice and subtle, and isn’t at all dominating.
