Not bad. Almost a milkier lamer version of Rodenbach with a passionfuit callipo dipped in there. A bit lame.

i'm a bit insulted that duff can compare this to my homebrew cherry beer but i guess there aren't too many other australian cherry beers to use as a point of reference. deep red colour with some lactic sourness. finish reminds me of cherry yoghurt

Duff must have read my notes. Cherry cordial nose, good colour. Cherry flavour dominates as it should but the body is too thin. Sweet dry finish. Nothing outstanding but quite ok.

Reminded me of Motelpogos cherry beer, but perhaps not as good. Tart at first with a dry finish, the cherries are there, but watered down a bit. A bit simple and thin, i tasted some cardboard or something aswell.
