2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ewwwwwww!! This beerís main quality reside in itís look. Lovely copper - almost pink colour mounted by a nice looking head, wich disapears quite rapidly. No body and no hops either on the nose. Reminds me the cherry flavoured medecine my mom use to give me when I was 5 years old. The only aromas I get from the beer side of his liquid is grain and alcohol. Taste is honey, artificial sugar, a bit of cane maybe, but the nose didnít lie: no hops in this. Palate is very thin as well. carbonation like you sometimes find in summer sour beers and thatís almost everything I can say about this beer. It ended down in the sink.

Didnít write too much in the beer journal for this one. Pours a artificial esque red and amber. The nose is fruity and lightly grainy. No hops to see in the flavour with a fake maraschino cherry flavour. Sweet and fruity but no IPA!

Almost pink in color, with a bready aroma with hints of almost artificial cherries. Taste was okay, subtle cherry that was a little sweet for my taste and it lacked the distinctive bitterness of an IPA. It was with trying, but not worth writing home about.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour with a thin white head. The nose is loaded with sweet cherry juice. Has a bit of fruity hops but itís hard to differentiate them from the cherry juice. Sweet palate with a lingering fruitiness. Meh - not really my bag.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
I was suuuuper excites to try this because it was the first ever cherry IPA I have seen. As a fan of cherry lambics and IPAs this is a sweet dream of mine.
And my dreams were crushed. Funky color with some white/pink foam. Very clunky execution. Absolutely no hop flavours and a very heavy, cloying cherry flavour. Yech.

355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild cherries and not much else. Taste is cherry and malt sweetness with a little tartness with a mild grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with modest carbonation. Tastes more like a typical fruit beer, no Belgian or IPA qualities at all.
