2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra. Pours ruby with a thin pink head. A lot of tiny bubbles on the inside of the glass. Aroma of blackberries, cherries and other red fruits. Taste is really sweet with some hidden bitterness. Not realy bad too sweet, too fruit juice alike and too boozy.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cherry smell with maybe a bit of a mineral smell. Medium carbonation with some foam. Taste is cherry, the Stevia that they use, a general red berry taste mixed with a slight bit of bitterness, and a bit of a minerally or possibly metallic sort of taste in the aftertaste that sticks to the tongue/roof of the mouth for a while. Given that I paid around 5 bucks for this 11.2oz bottle, I can definitely say that I wouldnít buy this again.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l bottle. Well, itís definitely red this. Cloudy raspberry brown on the pour and it has a nice big pinkish really lacing medium sized head. Hmm.. What does this smell? Hard to describe really, but fermented strawberries, some raspberries, lime zest and lots of sweet cherries guess sums it up pretty precisely. Oh, itís sweet this. Cloying. Really cloying and a tad to much for my liking. The cherries sweet dominates the taste here. Itís thick and oily in the mouth and it had that creamy growing carbonation level. This is a tad to much for my liking to be honest. Itís not bad tasting, and I guess it can work as a sipper, but here in the steaming sun itís just not a perfect match. I must admit this time did not know that this was a cherry beer when I opened the bottle. 18.07.2014

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared crockery-look, coated 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing a fairly clear, coppery red color, with a fingerís width of soft white head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was expressive cherry that was on the artificial side, but by no means medicinal, as many fruit beers with this aroma tend to be, some syrupy sweetness, and a touch of tartness. The taste was similar, medium bodied, with lively, fizzy carbonation, and continued tartness into the finish. Not as part of a steady diet, but a nice, dessert-like change of pace to our tasting session.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep red with similarly pink head. Taste is super sweet, tangy, sticky and tart getting a little sickly in places. Not as well-balanced as the likes of Kasteel Rouge.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle - 330 ml) Red pour with a thin head. Sweet cherry aroma with a light dryness underneath. Sweet cherries up front with a definite dry almond middle and a slightly tart but still sweet cherry finish. Really nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
DAA; Bottle 0, 33l. Pours hazy, murky reddish brown with a average, frothy, lacing, lasting off-white head. Nose is intense chemical cherries, malt, caramel,†almond, red berries, light citrus and spice. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet, light citrus, warming and somewhat artificial lasting. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. I love cherries, artificial or not..

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Thirsty Monk (AVL).
Dark red-amber body with a very good head.
Loads of dark cherry aroma; hints of almonds and light spicing. Alcohol esters.
Flavor. Medium tartness wins out over a noticeable sweetness and mild bitterness. Strong but appealing and balanced flavor.
