3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Beer Hawk (sent as late replacement for Tremens) - A deep ruby red body, pink head. Nose is cherry... and cherry. That’s it. The taste is very sweet, overwhelmingly so, and thick with the booziness. Cherry is all I get really. A very average, overly strong cherry fruit beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rouge rubis opaque, effervescence moyenne, très peu de mousse. Beaucoup de cerises et de sucre avec un peu de sureau au programme! Autre chose? A part un ABV très bien masqué, circulez, y a rien à voir!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I didn’t notice the cherry ear-rings on the front label’s elephant when I bought this (most likely wouldn’t have bought it if I had). Another reminder to wear my glasses when buying new beers.
330ml Bottle: BBD June 2014, poured into a Westmalle chalice at home during July 2013.
What can I say: it’s a bloody cherry beer, too sweet and with loads of alcohol thrown in.
As the name suggests, this is a red coloured brew: the fast fading head had a light pink hue.
As the ear-rings suggested, cherries play a part in the taste, in fact they are the only flavour and aroma I got.
I thought it both sickly and disappointing. If you are into high alcohol fruit beers this might be your bag, but it’s not for me.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A bit of a surprise, expecting a red ale and got a sickly sweet cherry dominated candy flavoured monstrosity. Poured a bright pinkish red with a frothy head. Aroma of overpowering sweet berry fruit, flavour the same.
