3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a pale pink with a paler pink head with decent retention. Light sweet artificial cherry smell. Tastes like cherry pop, watery, drinkable though, rather inoffensive. Ok carb, thin body. Quaffable, bland.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lovely dark pink, hazy. Black cherries dominate the aroma and flavour, with a slightly lactic and musty edge to add character. A nice summertime sipper.

Redish pour with a thick lacey head. Cherry and hops scent. Not that sweet, actually kind of tart. Rather nice for a fruit beer (not usually a fan).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Noel Cuveliers, Abele. Red/pink, just off white head with a decent amount of stick. Buttery raw sugar aroma, strawberry jam. Simple airy sweetness, a fairly thin cherry acidity, buttery finish with a linger sense that there is quite a lot of sugar in this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Looks like BB4 some time in 2010. Very red, almost a very dark ruby-pink. Light foamy white head. Lightly sour cherry nose. Tame sourness. Lght cherry notes. Sourness picks up in spots balancing a fair sweetness. Seems a bit more like a commercial fruit beer than I woud expect. Juicy and enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light cloudy pinkish red colour with pink-white foam - beautiful! Aroma from almonds, marzipan, little cherry stone and the slightest of vanilla. Flavour is laid back cherries and not awfully sweet but there are probably added sugars. Very good balance and easy drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (25 cl), thanks rickgordon. Ruby red with a creamy pink head. Fresh cherry aroma with some tart cidery grapefruit, and wooden notes. Soft carbonation. Well balanced with a light sweetness, gentle acidity and some vague grapefruit bitterness interplaying.
