2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 l bottle. Dark red colour with pink head. Well, this has an artificial cherry flavour, but it was better than I exptected. Not quite extremely sweet. Palate has something from the beer. It is like eating a muffin with cherry flavours. This could go as a liquid dessert.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle. Pours red with a large pink head. Sweet cherry syrup aroma. Artificial cherry flavour. Too sweet and too artificial.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Many thanks to Finn for a 500ml bottle of this. Bubbly pink head, spotty lacing, clear dark red body. Dry cherries on the nose. Taste of cherry, candi sweetness, and a touch of almond. Soft carbonated. Monotonous (shared with djoeye, Tromsø 20.04.2015).

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Flaske 500ml fra Alko Muonio. Dyprød/amber. Bra skum med litt rødfarge. Markert lacing. Forsiktig bæraroma. Smaken er litt ubestemmelig bær - men i ettersmaken blir en helt sikker: Kirsebær. Gikk til nød som drikke til middag men vil bli for tynn som stand-alone.

Slightly hazy deep ruby red color, small light pink dense creamy head, good retention and lacing; fruity aroma, sour cherries, kriek; taste heavy sweet, cherry; light body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, aftertaste sweet, slightly bitter notes, artificial feel; unfortunately no sour touch, makes it too sweet, like lemonade.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very fruity flavor. Nice red color. Thick head, lively, medium sweetness. Drinkable but not very beer like.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a garnet color with moderate retentive pink head. Aromas of sulphury cherries and wet malts. Flavors of thin sugary cherry juice with warming carbonation. Not my cup of tea.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear ruby, bit sparkling, thin pinkish creamy head, bit sticky lacing patches. Grainy dry aroma with surprisingly litlle cherry, bit hay. Disappointing actually. Medium body, soft, semisweet, like aroma bit diluted cherry. Not bad palate but aroma and flavors stand out as disappointingly antural and Mild. Just had Liefmans Cuvee and this practically dies in comparison.
