3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught . Deep red colour with a pink head. The aroma is cherry candy and some cherry stones. Flavour is very sweet. Chrry candy again. This is not bad in small amounts, but it is way too sweet to drink much of it.

(Bottle @ Delerium cafe, Brussels, Belgium): Pours a cherry red color, smallish whitish red-pink head. Tart cherry aroma. Syrupy cherry taste, sweet. Very tart cherry taste. Almost like a cough drop. Good sweet desert drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a ridiculous shade of red. Candy red with a whiff of maraschino cherries. Very sweet and pretty tart, but there is no beer in here. This tastes like cherry pop (good cherry pop, mind you, but still cherry pop). Definitely not the traditional bitter beer with sour cherries I was expecting.

Bottle, Dovetail, Clerkenwell, London. Continuing my mini one-man pubcrawl, I decided to go for some new Belgians. Very glace cherry, sweet aroma about this one. Amazing red deep colour, thin pink head. Nose and mouth remind me of sweets (cherry drops). Flavour is sweet cherry, but easy drinking, wheaty. Palate is slightly sour, sweet. Little bit too gassy. Quite nice, if not a little bit straightforward.
