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.

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.

Bottle - Cherries and some grains. Hazy gold with a light white head. Sweet cherry and a light bitterness with some grain. I donít get or like this at all.

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.

For those who donít have time to rate they put all the beers in one bottle. Light cherry scent but no yeast or hops. Sweet, heavy, crushes the cherries, hides the hops and pushes aside any Belgian note. Might have been cool but no delicacy.
