3.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
11.2 fl oz bottle into Petrus goblit. Color is red brown, very clear and medium to high carbonation. Head is small and offwhite color, dissapated quickly. Nose is maraschino cherry, liquorice, and tart rasberry or blackberry. Maybe some esters. Palate is very astringent and dry with the cherry aroma shinning through. Not as sour as I expected and definately nothing sweet. Finish is short and very dry, not crisp or quenching.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark and strong for the style. Rich, sour cherry flavor. Almost syrupy and maybe a little bit overdone. This is more of a sipping beer than, say, a Rodenbach which I think of as a more light and refreshing type of beer. Solid but I’ve had better sours.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I think this is a bit underrated. Perhaps the thin filmy head distracts a bit but the deep ruby color is lovely, and the spritzy nose of cherry is very nice. The flavor is well balanced. The dry sourness of petrus comes through, as does the cherry. This would be a near perfect beer but it has just a touch too much sweetness, although it’s not artificial or candy-ish. Very good stuff.

33cl bottle. Clear reddish colour with a nice off-white head. Fruit, tart and yeast in the aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is sweet and sour with some bitterness in the finish. Overall, a nice beer but... Not much my preferred style.

The combined taste of dark beer and cherries is quite extraordinary. Might be a bit too sour.

Had this at a fantastic tasting and had such a great time with great people and great beers! This reminded me of cheap grocery store brand black cherry soda.
