19th Aug 2015: shared bottle at the Aug Shrewsbury bottle exchange meeting, cheers Mike. Glad Iíve drank it, glad I did not buy it. Uber Cherry aroma and flavour, red beer with a Bakewell Tart nose and taste. not my thing at all. Scored objectively.

Aroma is sweet cherry, a slight earthiness, and sweet malts. Taste is an excellent balance of cherry and sweet malts. The cherry flavor tastes natural and very organic. Appearance is a clear red with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Pours a rather dark red color with a short lived pink head. It has the aroma of cherry candy. It taste like cherry soda. The body was medium with a bitter sour aftertaste. Overall itís not to bad. I kinda like it. One of the better fruit beers for sure.

Pour is a dark red with a large pink head looks like grenadine. Aroma is of course cherry. Flavor is again cherry and sweetness. All of these Sam Smith fruit beers have a decent flavor and again these taste so fresh itís hard for me to believe there is no artificial flavoring in them. Still for a $1.99 clearance they are worth a pick up.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a deep red with a pink head. Itís nice to look at. The aroma is tart cherries. The taste is cherries with a hint of grain. It smells and tastes natural. The carbonation almost gives the feel of cherry soda. It was different and a nice change of pace.

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.
