(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.

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

tommann (2485) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange pink with a medium head. Aroma is sweet and slightly tart cherry stones. Taste is sweet cherry throughout. A little one sided but perfectly drinkable.

Bottle, 330ml from M&S’s in Banbury. Ruby red with pink head. Not having had great experiences with cherry beers in the past I was prepared to pass this one over quickly to Sandra, but no, it is certainly initially sweet and sticky but a tart, souring cherry battles through giving a very pleasant sweet & sour effect. Fresh fruit, biting, lasting, I was impressed.
