3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2011 2011-09-24. Dark pink-red body with a tiny head that fades. 3+ Sweet and sour cherry in the aroma. 7+ Flavour has a modest sourness throughout, sweet cherry has a candyish quality to it despite being real cherries (I assume). A bit of funk in the aftertaste grows as you go. 7+ Average to light bodied palate. Solid but the raspberry version is much more to my tastes. 7/3/7/3/13-14 On tap at Volo, Toronto
2005-09-XX. Ruby red body, small creamy pink head. Tart, mildly yeasty and fruity aroma. Predominance of cherries with underlying tart-sour quality. Quite fruity. Less intensely sour than I remember the raspberry being but less quenching at the same time. Sourness lingers in a way that is pleasant at times and less so intermittently. Surprisingly quaffable. 7/4/7/3/14 On tap at the brewpub while moving to Halifax for grad school, Montreal

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Impressive, vibrant red with a slick of froth that contrasts with it’s pearly white color. It really does look like those alcopop nightmares...
Strong, fruity acidity that reminded of raspberry flavored vinegar or a dry rosé wine, it had a floral-like sweetness that didn’t come out at all in the taste, sort of like eau-de-rose or those flowery essences they use to make some mediterranian desserts.
Whoh, this stuff is tang-tastic! Lip-smacking, like pure, unsweetened cranberry juice. May not be for everyone, but I seriously believe that it’s impossible to make a Beer more refreshing than this. Light, wheaty body, and a dry mead aftertaste. This stuff is kick ass.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish hue, with a frothy red pinkish head, with a sour fruitiness nose of tart cherries, even an hint of tart raspberry, in an agressive acidity aroma follows through on a medium-bodied and sour cherry palate with a cherry tartness and sourness flavor leading to an agessive sour fruitiness finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful clouded pale ruby. Mostly lasting white 1cm cover, fully carbonated. Juicy, ripe fruit aroma, fleshy and lactic. Tart mouthfeel, though not as astringent as the raspberry one was. A most classy end of summer refresher, but not a personnal favorite. The carbonation was intense, but not as engaging and crisp, the wheat less like a cracker you want to chew on, with lesser leafy bitterness. More simple than an amourette and kinda diluted. Highly competent as a fruit beer and very easy to drink nonetheless.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Orange-cherry hue with moderate carbonation but no head. Big cider vinegar nose. Cherry peel flavor plus some more acetic acid. Tart and sticky. Not so good in my book, although I'm still trying to figure out this style. This was hands-down the least popular beer among the group at my table.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Red body topped with a quick-fading pink bubbly head. Relatively weak cherry aroma typical from underaged beers. Taste is a bit aciditic and maybe oversweetened. Good and long sour/bitter final. I like sour fruitbeers and Berliner but I think that one could gain a lot by aging a little bit more and being served in an appropriate glass at DDC.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(#400) Sour cherry and a touch of vinegar in the aroma. Very red with thin, white head that diminishes to ring. Initial short burst of sweetness and cherries overwhelmed by one dimensional vinegar sourness. Flavour builds throughout the tasting. Body is light and quite still. Perhaps this one did not benefit from aging? On tap (aged one year).
