Dark blood-red colour. Small pink head. Sweet cherry aroma with notes of sour apples and dark chocolate. Quite sweet and one-dimensional flavour of cherries. Some sour notes in finish.

Red with a big fluffy pink head. Spicey fruit aroma. Sour with cherry tartness. Musty wood/earthy background. Has good qualities that are upstaged by too much sugar.

Pours a pinkish colour, with a pinkish head. The aroma is quite plain: cherries. In the flavour, the cherries taste fake, and it just isn't sour enough for me. Nonetheless, it's kinda tasty. Bottle.

Love the sweet sesation of the tartness once your first sip is taken. Enjoy the sweet raspberry flavour. Not the type of beer that you can have all night, however is good to start the evening off.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep ruby red, with a small fizzy pink head. Flavor is tart before it warms up to the proper temperature. After sitting for awhile, the flavors really come out, syrupy sugary sweet, that reminds me of those little cherry candies you get around the holidays from Hickory Farms. Very tasty and easy to drink.

Pours a rich red brown color with a hearty cherry aroma. Tart flavor when chilled, but turns more fruity and sweet as it warms. Warms the mouth with cherry flavor, with a subtle tart aftertaste. Good, not great, but good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma was medicinal cherry. Smelt extremely sweet. Mouthfeel was light and crisp. Well-rounded, but not awe-inspiring. Now--the flavour is fantastic. Sour cherries with good sweet kick off the bat, finishes with bubblegum that eases away. The finish is subdued enough to allow the start room. Aftertaste is well-sweetened tart that remains for some time. A wonderful drink to discover--I think one would enjoy this with a nice dessert and then relax, possibly by drinking something totally different. Not a session by any means (my God, imagine doing that, you'd have to remove your tongue by the end) but something to always have in the fridge.

Artificial and extremely sweet. A classic low quality fruit beer. Too much is sickening.

A litlle too ordinary. The palate has’nt got the nice marzipan-alike-taste, which I enjoy very much.

The aroma is sweet and powerful of cherries. The color is red and it has an OK but disappearing head. The flavor is sweet with notes of cherries, and a dry woody finish. It is way too sweet for me.

Comments about the colour and presentation of beers like these probably don't add a great deal to the evaluation of a beer of this style. There is no need to comment on the natural hue of a beer because of the obvious adjuncts. Ditto the nose and taste as a cherry beer is going to probably smell and taste of .......Having said all that it is still a good and refreshing beer. There is a gegree of syrupy presence as noted by some but if you look past that it is still quite an acceptable drink, as opposed to a beer.
