1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very rich dark colouring with red tinges and no head. Smells a little sour. Very fizzy in the mouth. Hardly any really notable taste. A little bonfire toffee after-taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the Whistle Stop in Saltburn. Deep red with a fading tan head. Subtle slightly chocolate cherry aroma. Sour cherry flavour over quite an earthy taste from the beer. Not a sweet fruit beer at all. Full mouthfeel from the high carbonation thatís almost champagne-like. This is an interesting beer. Quite Belgian in style really. Reminisent of a sour with a touch of cherry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dense and dark brown, redwood head and tartish nose. Smooth and firmly malty initial taste, backhands of cherry secreted in rather than breaking down the palate doors upfront. Nice mix of juicy sweetness and a tarty tang finish. A steadily drinkable fruitbeer?
Bottle, House Of Trembling Madness, York

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy of the wonderful Peter Fowler of Shoulder of Mutton fame Wantage, consumed in the field at Cropredy Fairport festival Friday 9th August 2013 Pours hazy dark brown, touch red maybe no head. Cherry comes across very nicely, combining well with the base beer. Nicely sour, fruity and tangy, really enjoyable. Soft in mouth, nice tartness about this. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle at The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Deep ruby with a lasting pinkish beige head. A limited fruity cherry aroma. Yes it has some cherry fruit over an ok malty beer with not huge character or complexity. Some dryness on finish is interesting. Itís ok. A slightly fruity beer. Fine, but I was OK.

330ml bottle from the Cheese & Wine Shop, Darlington. Ruby brown colour, pink tinged foam beige head and aroma of roasted malt & dark fruits. Taste is roast malt & dark chocolate with fruity sour cherry and some biscuity bitterness. Tangy, foamy mouth feel, medium bodied, well carbonated, dry finish. Quite drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Trembling Madness. Tries to creep out of the bottle. Pours dark brown with a slightly pinkish head. Aroma is rather cherry. Med body. Flavor is malty cherry. Itís decent, but itís not a kriek, itís not a sour, itís not very bitter. Basically it seems to be a tasty fruit beer. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark brown pour with purple tinge with tiny off white head, fruity aroma, quite heavy carbonation which doesnít quite sit right with this style of beer, I prefer a more mellow bubble, the taste for me has dried fruits marzipan. Adequate.
