3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle of 250 ml at home.One finger pinkish head, dark ruby colour, quite an activity in the glass in the form of bubbles rising to the top. The head quickly became a half finger thin line on the surface of the beer, so retention is quite good.
Aroma is of course of cherries but is a bit too strong, thus appearing artificial. I can smell something else too, but I cannot tell what exactly, the smell is not pleasant though.
Taste is slighty better, sweet as expected but leaves a slighty sour aftertaste. I think that afterall, the smell I was getting is from sour cherries, and you can trace them on the taste too.
On the body is thick above average for a fruit beer, with medium carbonation. Is nice to actually feel that youy don’t drink a cherry juice.

25 cl bottle (4,0%) @ home. Rated on 28.02.2010
Aroma has sweetish cherry juice and sugary notes. Flavour has juicy cherries, fruit sugar and almost nothing else. Way too sweet stuff.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A red beer with a nice pink/red head. The aroma is the sour aroma that must have a kriek. The flavor is sweet with notes of cherry, and a sour dry finish. A nice one.

Bottled, thanks to Eva who gives me a sample. Dark reddish colour with an off-white head, quickly dissapearing. Aroma is fresh, fruity, cherry notes. Flavor has cherry notes with a chemical sensation. Dry and bittery final.

Bottle 25cl. Pours like red wine or juice with no head. Interesting and fruity smell with strong cherry. Taste is some what too acidic but good fruity with cherry and marzipan. Would be a good dessert beer with cake or something. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Piros szín. Rózsaszín hab. Cukros, érett meggy illat. A gyümölcs dominál a sörben, ami enyhe édesből egészen fanyarba megy át. Csak az íz legvégén villant gyenge édeskés maláta aromát. Könnyű frissítő.
