2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Belle robe rubis, mousse crémeuse, peu persistante. Nez sur le bonbon anglais, la la cerise haribo, un coté chimique. Bouche assez banale, légèrement fruitée, courte sur une finale médicamenteuse. Sans intérêt.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle from my Belgian father-in-law. Pours a deep blood red with a pinkish tinge to the creamy white head. Aroma is vibrant cherry. Taste is rich, flavoursome with a big cherry boiled sweet presence and a light tangy bite. Nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle in t’pannepotje, De Panne. Not sure it’s as bad as the other raters would suggest, but quite how a beer that is 14% cherry juice still manages an abv of 8.7% must mean it was pretty grim beforehand. Would also explain all the sugar and sweeteners. It actually tastes like a Dr Pepper alcopop, not that bad. At the risk of insulting my own gender - one for the ladies.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Cherry cough drop nose, very sweet. Deep reddish, and a medium-sized pink head. Cherries, but really over-sweet and artificial tasting. Mid gets harsh with the alcohol and perhaps some bittering. Final goes back to the sick, sweet cherry. Candy drink. Nah!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, 33cL. Home. A red garnet opaque beer with a medium off-red head ; medium retention. Cherry syrup, candy, alcohol. Medium to heavy sweet, sugary, light dry, warming background. Medium body, average texture, sticky, average carbonation, fruity syrupy light dry finish. Overall, a 8.7% liquid candy ; definitely drinkable, but not my thing.

Bottle from Terre de Boissons Calais and drunk at home. Vivid clear red, lasting pink head. It’s like an alcopop. Kiddie sweet artificial cherry with a touch of chalk. Not good. Way way too sweet.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier - dark and murky red-brown beer under a big light pinkish head; strong cherryish aroma with notes of caramel and candy sugar; hugely sweet, full-bodied and sticky; light herbal, some residual sweetness and long cloying cherry-bubblegum finish - nothing for me here
