uckelman (363) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2015 Cloudy, red. Small pink head. Looks like cherry NyQuil. Smells like cherry NyQuil mixed with a packet of bread yeast. Flavor is mostly cherry, quite tart. Medium-heavy oily palate. Finish is syrupy. The aroma is rather off-putting, but otherwise is quite good.

Cloudy cherry red with no head. Smells of NyQuil -- extremely offputting. Taste starts off with a punch of cherry, nice and tart, and ends with the flavor of canned cherry pie filling with a hint of cinnamon. Odd for a beer, but not bad. Medium body, lively. Pretty tasty if you don’t smell it while drinking!

330ml bottle bought at M&S Food Store in SoHo, Central.

Cloudy, hazy ruby pinkish red colour with a thick hard rim of yeast sediementsThree-quarter finger head with pink foam which last for 1 minute; Excellent sticky lacing and zero carbonation; Fragrant aroma of light malt, with strong cherry juice and fruit, red wine, light rhubarb, sugar, faint coriander and faint grass; Medium sweet taste of light malt, with moderate wheatyness, strong sour cherry, light sugar, coriander, yeast, light spices, lemon and very light grassy hops; Mid to light body, slightly slick and juicy palate; Mouth feel is overwhelming sour cherry onto a moderate Belgian white beer base - wheaty tartness can’t be felt, but fleshy and juicy Belgian sour cherry is everywhere. Natural sans-sugar sweetness gives some good balance to cherry sourness. Light coriander, yeast and lemony hops round up the taste. Pretty good for a fruit beer…Hoppiness is faint grass in nose, lemon and very light grass in taste. No bitterness, just sour and sweet fruity cherry finish; Slightly dry after taste. Very easy and fruity to mouth.

Comments: Lots of nice Kriek-type cherry in this one, and its fruity taste is natural with nice sweet balance. Thick yet refreshing, I like this Belgian White cum fruit beer a lot. Will buy again!

edsspoon (714) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle - hazy cerise with a foamy pink head that eventually fades to a ring. Aroma of wheat, coriander seed, grass and sour cherry. Taste of sherbet, sour cherry, a little hay and yeast and a touch of sourness. Medium body, low carbonation. Pleasant.

allmyvinyl (5692) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2014
330ml bottle from M&S at the Gyle, Edinburgh. Pours like beetroot juice, cloudy pink-purple, pink frothy head. Big sour cherry aromas, light sherbet note. Taste is light black-cherry-yoghurt sour, than a massive chalky sweet kick. Not bad body for the strength.

330ml bottle from M&S - Pink to Purple body, frothy pink head, loads of carbonation. Nose has the cherry in abundance, a bit plastic mind you. Taste is sour cherries, but nothing much else. All a bit confectionery for me, nice enough, but missing something.
