2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. As others are noting, this had an explosive head - I poured 4/5 into a 12oz bulb glass and over half of it was head, I might have done a sloppy pour but it spilled all over my counter. Slightly hazy orange color. Soft, somewhat thick carbonation. Cherry aroma is there, but a bit too much apple aroma as well for my tastes. I might just not enjoy cherry in beverage form. Interesting, but I wasn’t a fan of this beer that trolls you with excessive head.

Infected? HUGE head. Lots of carbonation. Very thin. Slight sour, tart flavor. Refreshing. Not really bad, but I didn’t particularly care for it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer starts with an aroma of light wheat, tartness, and a hint of cherry. It pours an amber with a touch of red, and a gigantic white head. There’s a visible cascade of carbonation in the glass. The cherry flavor is subdued, and comes across more as a tartness. Fairly full mouthfeel for a summer beer, but not bad.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber, clear, large but thin foamy head -- lots of carbonation. Tart cherry aroma with wheat. Taste is a little sour. Palate is light to medium with the carbonation. Overall decent but the palate takes away -- may be something with this bottle?

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour, cloudy with sediment. Frothy white head. Fruity, tart nose with citrus, sour cherries and lemon. Fruity, sourish taste with notes of citrus, cherries, wheat biscuits and a slightly citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, rather dry and slightly tart. Interesting and definitely drinkable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear pink coloured body with a dense, thick, HUGE pale pink head and tons of bubbles coming from everywhere. Aroma of sour cherries, metal, malt, wheat and a touch of light grain. Light-bodied; Very mild wheat and yeast flavour with a pungent kick of metallic notes and a very bitter cherry juice taste. Aftertaste is strong and potent - a lot of bitter tastes throughout with some cherry sweetness and tastes and a long bittering metallic note. Overall, an interesting beer - not much wheat going here, but the cherry notes are noticeable, but not so much in a good way. I sampled this twelve ounce stubby bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 30-July-2010 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 25-January-2011.
