(bottled) Drank from my De Dolle goblet this looked pretty in pink ,with vibrant purple base. I found this nice(basically). Im usually skeptical about this kinda thing(non lambic-fruitbeer), but I was happy i got both sweet ,then tart cherry and notes of yougut ....wheat is subtle. This was way way refreshing . I wish i’d picked up six bottles -rather than just the solaitary one, as it worked with me.

Very deceptive for a 3.5% beer. Quite sweet and lacked with cherry flavours and aroma. But not at all sour and thin like some fruit beers. In fact this is dangerously drinkable. Just a bit expensive for what it is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

500ml bottle (M&S)
Lovely black cherry aroma. Pink, and a small head. Lovely fleshy black cherry flavour. Wheat is pretty low in the mix. Sharp palate, and crips. Very tasty, good thirst quencher.

johndoughty (3974) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2010
Bottle. Purple appearance which was a different start. Cherry flavours dominate and quite a lot of body. Definitely above average for this style. Quite adventurous for Marks ans Spencer to commission this one. Worth a try.

Bottle from M&S, Bicester consumed 12.06.11 Pours dark red with barbie pink head. Plenty of ripe fruity cherry flavour’s however it is a bit too heavy on the sweetness, though I did like it and would happily have another. A6 A5 T7 P4 Ov13 3.5
