3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12.7 oz. bottle. Pours a deep red - almost looks like a claret, with a thin, fizzy pinkish head. Lively carbonation. Very nice aroma of cherries. Cherry is also by far the dominant flavor. Initially very sweet. After a couple of seconds sourness overtakes the sweetness. The sourness actually lingers for a while after the swallow. A fun beer Iíd love to try in the summer on warm evening.

Nice dark red-brownish colour wth a short fizzy head. Aroma of sweet cherries indeed. Refreshing sweet flavour of cherries, bit wheaty, nice sour touch.

On tap at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Dark red with a faintly rosy head. Looks a cracker. Attractive cherry stone aroma. Taste has some sourness and bitterness, but itís a bit too sweet for me. A crowd-pleaser: nearly very good.

Okay, hereís a real treat. This stuff...served HOT...with an apple wedge in it! No shit, they come up with the craziest things in random bars 30 minutes outside of Tokyo. Reddish-amber, cherry Fanta looking head that breaks up quickly. It took me a while to figure out what I wrote down there, since this was beer #4 and the word "Fanta" doesnít come up a lot in ratings. On an unrelated note, my bro has this friend from Philadelphia named Fanta that he was once afraid to introduce me to, for fear that I would say something stupid. Imagine that, my own bro thought that I was a social liability! Or maybe her name was Fresca. But I digress. For this beer, I was very interested based on the strong cherry-apple aroma with some cinnamon; the heat really brought out some mad aromas. But then the whole damn thing falls apart in the flavor into a mess of cough syruppy blah. And since it was so hot, it seemed like I had drank half the glass when I had barely put a dent in it.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Almost no head at all, except for some cloud at the top. The beer has a "funny-red" colour; almost brown. Thereís an extremely strong chrry flavour, almost fake. Or fresh. Quite sweet and tart aroma. The taste has some uncleanlyness, or then itís so dry I canít appreciate it. Foul finish.

Bottle. Clear red beer with a big pink head. Very sweet aroma with cherry and a hint of sourness in the background. Sugar-sweet flavor with cherries. Thin body and a finish with sweet cherries.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big creamy pink head with holes from larger bubbles. Deep red body. Soft aroma of cherry and yoghurt. Taste is tart, bitterish cherry with notes of raspberry, yoghurt, and metal. No real aftertaste. Decent, but by no means great. (0.25l bottle.)
