eManu (516) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 9, 2015
From a 33cl bottle, pours a dark burgundy red color with a biege pink head. Aroma is fruity, mostly dark cherries. Flavors again of strong dark cherries, and cake like. Slightly sweet and with a more sour finish. Nice full fruity body, very enjoyable. Reminds of a wonderful cherry pie. Great dessert fruity ale. Delicious.

Radek Kliber (6869) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 25, 2015
Where and how: b. 750 ml
Aroma: plenty of cherry, mild tartness. Very clean, pleasant presentation. Mild dryness to it, slight peppery hints. Alcohol worked very well with set up.
Appearance :
Top: medium plus , tanned creamy feel. Lace and rings on glass.
Base: murky brown
Palate : medium bodied, smooth.
Taste: rewarding, approachable fruit character. Balanced, old school vibe.
other notes feels simplistic, but fruit, alcohol and malt set up hits all the right spots. Underrated.
