4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle shared by Colin at CBC, Clerkenwell. It pours a slightly hazy deep ruby/amber color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is fruity with loads of tart cherry notes and some citrus. Taste is well balanced, gently sweet and acidic with notes of cherries and light dust and citrus. Medium mouthfeel and well carbonated. Very good and certainly better than the Rubus.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby-tinged amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows cherry, brett, soft light malt and lemon.
There’s a bit of the cherry as a flavour too but it’s pretty restrained. Some acidity makes things refreshing before some light malt, brett and a soft bitterness roll through.
Carbonation is suitably high, while the body is light, working perfectly.

Draught, small stable pinkish creamy head, clear beautifull deep red colour, aroma of plums, cherries, and leather with a woody hint, flavour of plums, cherries and olives, light mellow fruity sourness, light bodied, long light sour olive aftertaste. Sinfully drinkable.

This Italian Kriek is a great blend of sweetness without much of the sour tones of its Belgian counterparts. With little aroma but a rich full bodied appearance. It tastes sweet on the tongue and doesn’t linger for long. Great pairing with spicy foods.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
24/01/2013 Buskers Pub (tap). Bevuta al Birra del Borgo Takeover. Limpida, color Campari, schiuma bianca sottile e poco persistente. Naso delicato, note di ciliegie, floreali e spezie, sciripposo e acidulo, non male. In bocca è ancora più convincente, fresca, acida, frutta rossa, corpo leggero, discreta secchezza. Davvero una bella fruit beer, ben fatta e di buon carattere.

On tap at Bir & Fud. Slightly hazy amber red brown beer, tidy pale pink head. Light palate, soft edges. Nice light cherries, not super sweet or super sour like so many cherry beers. Just nice cherry! Neutral finish. Very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Bir & Fud. Clear reddish-bronze with a nice, low head. Light cherry nose, minerals, salts, and some acid, much like a pickled Japanese plum (umeboshi). Tasty—tang flavor, lightly acetic, with plums, cherry, salt. Crisp and clean, and very interesting. Again, like an umeboshi. The nose is a bit too faint, but overall excellent.

Bottle at Jack & Leighton’s Birthday Celebration, thanks to Colin. It pours hazy pink-red with a small white head. The nose is earth, spice, red fruit, berry, pepper and lightly acidic. The taste is tart red berry, sweet-sour aspect, cherry, rosehip, juniper, pepper, sherbet and light acidity with a dry, tart finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. An interesting beverage for sure. Pretty tasty.
