Bottle from World of Beer as a carryout. Pours dark, deep red colored with a finger of pink head that recedes quickly. Cherry boquet off the top of this one , slightly tart but mostly black sweet ones, a bit of cranberry note, very fruity and not much else going on, though itís nice if youíre a fan of cherries. Flavor is a big punch of black cherries, not much in the way of hops or malt or yeast or sourness here. Basically black cherry juice with some carbonation. Nevertheless, this isnít extremely overly sweet and is somewhat pleasant as a dessert beer. Medium bodied with plus carbonation that keeps things from being super syrupy. Overall worth having if in the mood for cherries. The thing that sticks out to me here is that it comes with huge black cherry flavor, but without the medicinal cough syrup notes that can often be associated with that.

Iíve fallen in love with this beer. The cherry flavour isnít overpowering it just complements the beer perfectly. Tried this in Bucharest and will now be looking for it back in England.

This is definitely one of the most tasty beer that Iíve tried. Cherry is well ballanced with beer and because of the low bitterness girls can drink it too :)

if you believe your beer should taste like fruit lollipops, then this is the beer for you. okay, that is underselling it. the cherry flavour here is really quite unbelievable, and a first for any beer iíve tasted. that might make me biased in favour of it, but still - this is absurdly unique. delicious.
