4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Bottle. The aroma (should say WOW) was overwhelming with the scent of cherries, but did have mild notes of a light bread malt and a nice sweet doughy yeast.
It tasted sweet and malty with a very strong note of cherries from the start to finish with a light sourness appearing at the end. The flavor lingered on the taste buds for a nice long while allowing full enjoyment of the fruity nectar.
Mouthfeel was medium in body and a little watery yet nice and creamy in texture with the carbonation being somewhere between medium to moderate.
Overall an extremely tasty Fruit Ale, although it is more like a Lambic than an ale. This is the perfect beer to enjoy at the end of the day with a nice creamy dessert.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into a tulip. Pours a deep red, with a small pink head. Nose is cherries, and the taste follows. A little tart at the beginning, but yields to slight sweetness in the middle and finish. Very nice-not cloying.

Beaucoup de cerises au nez et en bouche. C’est sucré, mais aussi citronné. Bouche sur la cerise. Pas trop sucrée en bouche. Longueur moyenne, un peu trop d’alcool sur la fin.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Dark red. No head. Smells cherry juice. More juice in the taste, some alcohol and juice-like sourness. Nice drink, but hardly a beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Pinkish brown, clear, with a notable pinkish white head. Ripe cherry scent. Taste is a bit one-dimensionally fruity sweet, and finish is unfortunately short. However it’s an enjoyable beer which bravely tempers the intensity of Kasteel Donker. Good stuff.
