3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
250 ml bottle. Ruby red pour with a nice pink head. Aroma was a wonderful cherry pie filling. The flavor was a bit too sweet however. Lots of cherry and not much else. I was expecting a bit of tartness, but it really didn’t come through. Still tasty as a desert beer.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Dark translucent red pour....fluffy pink head. Sweetish fruity, maybe cherry, aroma. Big sour twany on first sip, then some sugary sweet cherry syrup flavor. A little thin bodied...moderately carbonated. Finishes pretty tart...almost nasty sour. Not one of my favorites.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Deep, ruby red pour with a respectable pink head. Smells of cherry candy. Sweer and sour, too much of each with seemingly no attempt at balance. I find this less artificial than their "premium," but not entirely free of syrupy and medicinal demons. Really, way too much sweetener, it affects detrimentally the palate as well as the taste, and the whole thing falls apart.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep dark red color, medium pink head. Cherry, bubble gum and sourness in aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Sweet start in flavor, ends with mildly sour, dry and bubble gum in aftertaste. Easy to drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark pink-redish colour, average pink head. Sweet-sour aroma, little malty. Smouth palate, full, finish is again sour-sweet, where the sweetness is not overwhelming; rather good one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Bottled. Compact and enough creamy head, not much long-lasting one. Lightly hazy red color, good fizz. Pleasant even if slightly uncertain scent. Notes of sour black cherry, cherry and must. Lightly acidulous. Winy and not too much prickly taste, tendency to extinguish itself on the end. Harmonious, sweet, and much pleasant body. Medium final.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle: Reddish to brown coloured with a rose-coloured fluffy foam; cherries, almonds, some malts in the aroma, but shoe-polish also, kind of perfumed, artificial; cloying fruity taste; artificial ("chemical") finish, only very shy tart fruitiness in the aftertaste. Liquid bubble-gum, pretty sweet, pretty repulsive..........

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Dark red colour with a medium pink head. Sort of an artificial cherry aroma. Very sweet taste of cherries with some cough syrup in there. Not offensive, but I wont bother again.
