3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Paper wrapped 375ml bottle. Pours a very murky & dark ruby red grapefruit colour. Large pinky white head settles down to a fine lace. Aromas of cherry, ruby red grapefruit, almond, hint of woody vanilla. Flavour is mostly sweet cherry fruit, with a touch of acidic tartness. A little too sticky sweet for me; almost like sucking on a cherry drop. Finish is slightly acidic but it quickly loses the battle with the ever present sweetness. Alcohol is hidden very well. Not sure what to make of this beer; too sweet for my tastes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Paper wrapped 375ml green bottle. "Holdbar til 31/08/14". Red colour, some haze and floaties. Big whitish head with a pink tinge to it, full and fluffy, good creamy lacing. Nose has some cherry fruit, a trace of tartness but mostly sweet fruit. In the mouth the beer has some bright cherry notes, some tart and acidic notes from the fruit, almost wheaty in the middle, but looking at the ingredients on the label I’m guessing its rice or almond. Some hop flavour toward the end and a little bitterness. Medium body, decent strength to the carbonation, 8% alv stays well hidden. I thought the intention might have been to make a cherry-sundae beer, but I’m not sure. I liked this beer, whatever it was.
