3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from AJ’s Fine foods. Pours muddy with an inch of white foam. They use artificial corks which are a real pain to remove. Hints of almond on the nose. The almond is much bigger on the tongue than the cherry. The one who compared it to marzipan is pretty close. The cherry is much more prominent on the finish. Interesting but not my favorite Mikkeller.

cloudy brew, with a pink/orange colour. Bock like aroma, with a cherry /almond mix. tastes of sugar and cherry, fresh fruit and wine like tannins, sweetness is balanced by cherry sourness, reminds me of marzapan. balanced but different.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375mL bottle: Pours a slightly hazy dark amber ruby with a thin covering of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet fruity cherry and toasted caramel malty nose. Starts with some light malty sweetness, earthy cherry skin and tart fruity notes and a hint of buttered nuttiness before a drier bittersweet finish. Could be a little cleaner, but an interesting concept nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at the Porter in little five points, atlanta. I assume this is the correct vintage. Nice clear reddish pour with ring of offwhite head. Nose doesn’t offer much, a little fake sugary cherry syrup aroma. However, I REALLY like the flavor, it was not ’fake’ or too ’candy’ Instead, it had genuine red cherry and plum pudding and cakey quality. I thought it was quite tasty.

Pours a clear and reddish beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, spices and almond. The flavor follows the nose with additional alcohol. The palate is sweetness. Overall this beer is below average.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy pink/orange with pinkish head. Lots of cherry with a lagery overtone, nutty, sweet. Oddness on the palate. Sweet and tart with cherries and marzipan. Interesting, but I don’t think I’d go for a second bottle.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark amber with a nice head. Aroma of milk chocolate and maraschino cherries kind of like a Cherry Blossom chocolate. Tastes like a Cherry Blossom more than a beer. Too much candy not enough beer. Hard to even pick up the alcohol. Interesting though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I think that this beer has the same colour as the other bottles of this same beer. The nose is certainly unique with a very soft vanilla aroma that seems like it has a cheese cake crust flavouring as a base for that. The fruit borders on strawberry, a light forest foliage in the fall note and a touch of jägermiester herb on the back end. Interesting and subdued. The taste is mellow and well balanced. Light cherry / berry thing with a very hard bitter finish that is quite tannic, maybe more like pits. Early mild spice fades in and out - how hilarious is midget porn? Like midget on midget - that’s the best. Odd sweetness that ties into the tannic quality. Not a big fan of this beer at all as the tannic side ruins it for me. Soft teeth, very low carbonation. Definetly not worth that amount of pesos.

Courtesy vertical bacon strips again. Murky burnt orange with thin head. Suspended particulates. Smells like candy. Raspberry tartness but mostly cherry. Quite sweet taste. Tingles my tongue nicely. Subtle sour cherry. Weird... Just got a nutty taste.
