3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Clear, dark red pour, quite pretty. Aroma of cinnamon, clove, sweet candied cherry, a touch of cough syrup. Taste is very sweet, concentrated cherry juice and clove. Tastes a bit like Unibroue Quelque chose actually, but much thinner; I’d be curious to try it warm. There is no acidity, so definitely more of a fruit beer. Palate is good, light carbonation and not too syrupy for a beer that is pretty sweet. Not what I was expecting but enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale rose-pink aroma with some sweet cherry and cherry pit aroma. Lots of spicy cherry and a little bit of light yeasty soice. There is a nice compexity to thencherry flavour, again despite the beer being too sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep but bright red. Very spicy cinnamon and clove aroma with sugary cherry. Spicy, cherryish - a fairly candyish quality but more interesting because of the spices.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft @ brewpub. Rich bright strawberry red. Fairly stable, tight but small head. Aroma is candied, spiced cherries. Sweet and spicy with lots of cinnamon. Soft palate. Nice, smooth body. Very very sweet. Sugary. But is still nice. The spices tame the sugars just enough but it can become cloying. Goes well with the salty bar foods.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy pale purple, small pink head. Aroma of ripe cherries. Sweet and medium bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Lots of cherries. Pleasant tasting cherries, but needs to be backed with some acidity, now it is too sweet for my liking.
