Big, lovely cherry & yeast smell (as you'd expect). Sweet tasting start till your draw air across your tongue then you get slapped on the mouth by equally big tartness. Like a light, effervescent cherry wine - this is a delightful beverage.

Bottle. Pours deep red, head disappears quickly. Aroma is cherry / vinegary. The taste is a nice cherry both sweet and tangy. Thought this wouldn’t be very nice, but was very wrong.

On tap at North Bar, Leeds. Nice deep reddish copper colour, virtually no head. Tart cherries and berries in the odour, with lambic-style funkiness as well. Taste is very interesting - sweet cherries towards the start, giving way to a really nice refreshing tartness on the way out. Carbonation is nice, too. Sweet giving way to sour is very nice indeed - this seems like a nicely accomplished fruit beer.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2004 Smells like fine wine. Tastes a little wine like as well. All in all very good but I wish the cherries used were the sweet rather than sour. It has a tart almost cranberry like taste. I have to agree it is very refreshing and light with comlex flavoring. If you like wine this may become a fave. For me I think it is excellent but lindemans is notably better

Pours a dark ruby red. Has a sweet cherry taste with a mild funkiness to it. A nice mild fruit punch aftertaste.

I dunno whether to describe this...everyone knows what it looks like it’s almost an icon so i’m not going to bother, the main thing for me is the lovely nutty almond flavour to it that reminds me of sucking cherry stones.

Wow! This is a liquid sweet tart. Beautiful deep red-brown color small head that shrinks into a ring around the glass. Taste is a great blend of an overly sweet lambic like Lindeman’s and a sour gueze. Very well balnced and easy to drink. Aroma is nicely funky with stinky cheese, sweet tart candy, and a touch of caramel or toffe like sweetness. The aroma induced a flashback of Cuvee de Tomme. Mouthfeel is explosive with fine fizzy carbonation. I’m a big fan.

Pours a dark red color with a small pink head. I should have suspected this beforehand but the nose and the taste was just a little too much like cough syrup for my liking. Basically you smell and taste malt and cherry. Cherry cough syrup finish. Not anywhere near a drain pour but I won’t be buying this one again.
