Hazy red beer, short lived pink head! Smooth palate. Nose and taste of sharp Morello Cherry. Like a cheap cherry liquer. All right though!

harrisoni (13737) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2011
33cl bottle from Utobeer. Why I let Richard from Uto persuade me to buy this I’m not quite sure. I’m not even the first one to rate it now. Very hazy deep red in the colour with a thick frothy pink head. ARoma of sweet artificial cherry. It has some beer mouthfeel in the mouth, but mostly artificial sweet cherry. No bad or poor flavours, just the fruit is just not right. But mostly drinkable.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle. Light reddish brown with a pinkish finger-thick white head. It’s pretty cherryish on the nose, in an artificial way, with almond and white sugar. The flavor has raspberry, cherry, some almond and lots of sweetness. It also has that pleasant touch of cigar, cellar and dark sugars I appreciate about some Belgian beers. Medium to full body, almost sticky on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting artificial and sweet berry finish. Sort of good, but way, way to artificial and sweet. 140713
