Bottle, shared with friends at game night. Lovely deep red with a purple hue and a pink bubbly head. Ripe cherry aroma and flavour, a bit syrupy, but balanced somewhat by a tartness in the finish. A tad sweet for my preference, but nice.

I'm not sure if I was being fair , but it's not one of my favorite from the wonderful selection from Samuel Smith's wonderful brewery.

Bottle from the Melborn Bros Brewery in Sptamford. Ruby colour with an almost punk head. Aroma pack the cherry fruit. The taste has cherry, is a touch sour, this makes it a very refreshing drink.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Birra alle cilegie rossa torbida con scarsa schiuma bianca. Al naso note di caramello alla ciliegia. In bocca corpo medio e sbilanciata verso una dolcezza che la rende stomacante. Sapore di amarene sciroppate con finale lungo e persistente. Questa ale è una delusione per me! Mi aspettavo molto di più di questo buon birrificio. Il mio consiglio da chef è abbinarla ad un dessert con cioccolato amaro o crema pasticcera.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
550 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 9/20/2013. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby red color with a 1-2 finger dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of sweet and tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of authentic cherry notes and moderate bready malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big sweet and tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy herbal bitterness and a fair amount of tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of sweet/tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic robustness and balance of big authentic fruit flavor with moderate bready malt sweetness; with a good sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly creamy/syrupy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome fruit beer. All around great robustness and balance of authentic cherry flavor and moderate bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
