3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A light, bubbly, ruby red pour. Aroma smells strongly of tart cherry, a bit monochromatic. That quality permeates the entire experience of this beer: cherries are up front in the flavor, and the sour follows quickly. The finish won't decide between bitter and sour, and the ale never really presents itself. Despite the criticism, it is a well-made beer with complexities that begin to present themselves toward the bottom of the bottle. Worth trying.

Tasted on 14.09.15. Intensive aroma of cherry wine. Small head disappearing to ring. Clear dark ruby colour. Sweet cherry taste with delicate acidity. Malty caramel backbone almost unnoticeable. Sweetness, sourness and a bit of well-hidden alcoholic bitterness in aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (11.2 fl.oz). Clear dark red-brown with a medium pink-white head that stabilises to a firm film. Nose offers plenty of fresh cherries with background marzipan, candy floss and faint red wine vinegary notes. Taste is candied cherry sweetness with those subtle sour notes at coming through mid palate before a sweet finish. ABV is well hidden. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation. Needs more sourness for me - blend it with Petrus Aged Pale to achieve this.
