draft@ZBF 2011: very sweet cherry juice, heavy on sweetness, with a lot of white sugar & a bit of artificial sweetener, enjoyable but a bit too much sugar, candy like

Tastes like candy and has been ’enhanced’ to taste even more like candy. Far too sweet to be enjoyable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle from beer planet, 3.5% acc. to bottle (looks like the picture)
aroma of cocktail-cherries, kids "cherry" eraser rubber, faint almonds. sort of artificial but not decidedly bad, just pretty extreme.
flavor ismuch better. cherry juice, fresh cherries, very faint sourness, that is more sour towards the end.

My wife scored this one, she really likes it. Well its a sour cherry beer, the aftertaste is a little chemical layover, but really it does taste just like real dark cherry. Its crisp, refreshing and pretty nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
25 cl bottle with an abv of 3.5% listed. Poured to my 1/2 pint sampler glass displaying a clear, deep, "robitussin" red color, with abundant, pink, bubbles & rocky foam, and thick, clingy, ribbons and spots of lacing. The aroma was very "cherry pie", with a slight, cherry cough drop scent on the back. The flavor was syrupy sweet, light tartness to the cherry, no bitterness, and a medium to light body. I also detected a little silkiness to the mouthfeel as the head and lacing persisted. Fruit juicy, and not too complex, but then again, not a huge Lambic fan. Although it can be a nice dessert blend with chocolate Stout.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear ruby body and a bright pink head of a modestly sizeable disposition. Aroma of cherries, fake cherries, very fake syrupy cherries. Taste is carbonated cherry syrup, wet and sugary finish. Picture ocean spray with more sugar and carbonation. Totally not working.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Gift from a friend. Nice colour, decent aroma of cherries (surprise surprise) that didn’t prepare me for the chemical aftertaste. First taste on the tongue is sweetness, but then a little sour comes before the chemical flavour kinda takes over and then that dissipates until you’re left with the sweetness lingering. I can’t recommend it, nor would I buy it again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(250 ml bottle. Rated @ 7.8.2010.)
Red colour, pink head. Very sweet aroma with notes of cherries of course. Sweet flavour, which (artificial) cherry concentration surprised me a bit. Only mild sourness. Light bodied with a dry finish. Not bad for a non-true lambic.
