3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Deep burgundy, reddish hues, moderate to large foamy tannish head, with a bit of a pinkish hue, nice
lacing.   Holy smokes, smells like Cherry Cola.   Sweet cherry juice up front.   Very faint tartness or barrel
aging.   Pretty damn sweet, and fairly artificial.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Really, this seems like
the New Glarus of Cherry beers in some way.   I was expecting a Sour Red/Brown, not a Cherry Fruit Beer.   In that
right its decent, a little artificial but enjoyable, but nothing about this really is sour.   Call it a Kriek Fruit
Beer and I would give it a great score, but as a Sour, nope.

330ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
Lovely cherry aroma. Some sweet red/bruin notes. Beautiful smooth palate, gentle carbonation - succulent. Marascino everywhere, all the way to the late finish. Lovely full sweet malty base. No sign of 8.5% at all. This is pure indulgence. Itís desert. Anna wrote "tastes of shit", so canít have any of the next bottle that I buy. Hahahah, jokeís on you.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Dexters, pours a dark brownish red with an off white head, the aroma was way more sweet than I was expecting, more cherry medicine like, the flavor was also way sweeter than I was expecting, not a ton of funk or sourness, the cherries are nice, but I was hoping for some more tartness mixed in, ok.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle dark ruby red, offwhite head. Aroma: tart cherry-cranberry cough syrup. Taste: follows nose. Way sweet, with medicinal and tannic notes to boot. Syrupy texture, full body, average carbonation. Overall: too syrupy sweet for my tastes, but I have friends who absolutely love this, so perhaps it's just a personal palate thing.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear dark ruby pour with garnet highlights and good ring of khaki head with a slightly pinkish twinge. AMAZING aroma of dark red cherry turnovers. Doesnít even remotely come off as fake or medicinal. Very authentic. Very excellent sweettart cherry juice with lots of carbonation. Just a little bit of syrupy sweetness that I donít quite care for, but other than that... And I juat Canít believe this even has 5% alcohol much less 8! Very fantastic!
