4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
37.5cL bottle from 2002. Orange/red color and more carbonation than expected. Amazing aroma of grapefruit and cherry. Simply intense. Flavor is more sour than a bottle drunk about 2 years ago. The cherry still comes through. Wow, this has matured into something really special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375mL bottle, pours a cloudy dark burgundy with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out sugary cherries and light funk. Flavour is very sweet, with sugary cherries drowning out everything else. No funk or depth. It’s a pleasant sweet fruit beer, but nothing else.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep ruby colour with a thin head. Aroma of cherry candy or cherry cough syrup. Tastes equally sweet, with very little carbonation. Interesting flavours and texture, too sweet for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep red, purply colour. Not much head. The aroma is cherry, and the palate is this sweet, cherry character. Sort of heavy body. And quite candyish.Well, it ends up as passable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours deep purple with a small pink head. The aroma has rich pie filling cherry, mild tartness (way more sweet) and vanilla. It has a medium crisp body with some smoothness too and light carbonation. The taste has a lot of cherries, light spice, hint of sourness and is pretty refreshing. Nice

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle. Pours a dark red with a pinkish/purplish head. Aroma of red wine and cherries. Taste is both tart and sweet, but not overly so. More cherries, red wine, and oak notes. Decent, but not quite as good as the non-export version.
