3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gusher. Coarse pink busy head shrinks quickly with a crackling
noise. Deep dark purple body with carbonation. Vinuous cherries
and almonds aroma with waxy fruity notes. Dry-sweet-acidic
earthy cherry and almonds taste with metallic waxy notes.
Mid-bodied. Very fizzy mouthfeel, which makes it harder to pick
up the flavours. Dryish-acidic waxy earthy almonds aftertaste
with cherry and musty cellar cherry stone notes. Lingering earth
cellar and cherry concentrate finish. Interesting and unusual.
I quite like it, but I don’t see why this couldn’t be 6% instead
of 8%. Yes, it would be less sweet and full-bodied, but this
doesn’t really justify the extra alcohol. (0.75l bottle, from
wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

Bottle courtesy of Kermis at Mr Hangover’s 2014 Nieuwjaarsborrel, Den Haag. Poured a hazy dark cherry red with a frothy pink head. The aroma is weak yeast and acid cherry. The flavour is medium sour with a smooth yeast cherry fruit palate with some hints of vinegar. Medium to light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Nice and refreshing but not as good as expected.

Well balanced, missing some complexity though. Highly carbonated though. Nice beer.
