2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml bottle shared by Gurthnar, thanks!
Deep red body, with a small, creamy, white head.
Very sweet aroma of cherry, lemonade and not much else.
Taste is quite light and sticky, with sweet cherries.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes light, sweet, with cherries.
All I get from this is sweet cherry lemonade with 5.1% ABV. Not my cup of tea at all.

Bottle. Strong manually operated cherry aroma, handcrafted notes. Organically grown colour, double fermented head. Distinctive organic taste, notes of extended maturation. Now come on, really. Overpowering cherry flavouring in both aroma and taste. Slight spurish tartness in taste. Deep red colour. Eh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quiet good, I think, and underrated. The cherry is strong in the nose and pure cherry permeates the flavor. It is not a sour cherry beer but neither is it candied or cloying. For me, it was a very pleasant, slightly sweet cherry beer with a pleasant spritziness and well-captured the fruit essence.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful clear almost cherry red. Outstanding head volume and retention, below normal lacing.
Rich nose of sweet cherries and tart cherries with a hint of biscuit.
Heavy medium body with an almost creamy texture. Expertly carbonated yielding effervescence from the middle on and really making the sweet cherry pop in the middle and tart cherry in the finish. Brew master perfection.
The flavor profile is World Class - this is the best fruit ale I’ve ever had. It has intense cherry flavor, both sweet and tart, reasonable complexity and is perfectly balanced for a cherry forward ale. It begins with a burst of sweet cherry flavor that effervesces into a tart middle. Underneath the tartness is a light biscuit and a hint of sour cherry. The finish is a slow fade of sweet cherry that also has a prominent tartness and a hint of sour cherry that yields a subtle pucker.
