Bottle cotteridge pissup. Wow!!! Red thin head aroma is cherry jam taste same cherry drops some steawberry raspberry so sweet with great tartness to balance out. Great sticky body with good carbonation to break it up. Beer of the night for me sensational stuff good easily have drunk the bottle to myself. I wish I could buy it from my local gas station!

Colour is burgundy red and it pours with a pink thick-set head that stays. Aroma is cherries and hay? Taste is cough drops (in a good way) then tart cherry and a sweet semi-dry finish. The flavour lingers around on the palate for a while, teasing your brain.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle share at Cotteridge Wines. Thanks to Leighton. Cloudy red / brown, small ring of white head. Aroma is cherries, berries, plasticine and jam. Body is medium, slightly foamy, medium carbonation. Taste is juicy fruits, soft malt backbone, jammy sweet, dark cherry compote. For me this was the best beer on the day - complex yet very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
24th Jan 2015: Cotteridge Wine meet, shared bottle. ’Cherry B’ was/is a cherry wine in the UK and this had the same aroma. Sweet cherries abound in this brew from the colour right through to the slightly souring finish. Not really my thing but an interesting take on the more traditional Belgian style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled, sampled at The Cotteridge Convention, many thanks to Beersiveknown for this one. Hazy reddish amber with slight head. Sweet cherries from the off in this one, cherryade then a hint of sourness. Next to no subtlety around this. Too over the top for my taste.

Pours a cloudy reddish brown from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big sweet cherries, malt, and sweet fruit. Taste is big on the fresh fruit, cherry amazing, like cherry ice cream, wow. This is one of the best fruit beers I have ever had.
