2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml clear glass bottle (Koht Birthday Auction, Tallinn)
Sickly sweet cherry, dirty other aromas, wet dog. Sharpish palate, but watery. Does have cherry, and other berries, in abundance, but the beer is weak. Unsatisfying in almost every way. Shame, as it seems to be quite cherry-ey. Pink, small frothy head.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Léhűtő, Budapest, on June 19, 2014.
As "Star Meggy".
Clear reddish color, pink head. Sweet, cherry, pips, almond paste scent. Sweet, sugary, cherry candy taste. Medium mouthfeel, very low bitterness. Sweet and sour candy like aftertaste. Not bad for a few sips, but not something I want to drink a whole lot of.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Birra interessante, dominata da una presenza di ciliegie che conquistano completamente il palato lasciandosi dietro una scia acidula e dolce. Nè una kriek né uno sciroppo, l’ho trovata piacevole ma una pinta intera può stomacare sul finale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deliciouslooking red with a white almost non-appearent head. Aroma of sour cherrys candy, limes and sweet malts. Taste is suprisingly sweet, and low in bitterness. Good aftertaste and a crisp light body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Skanzenclub, Budapest. Nice, fun pinkish head on ruddy reddish body. Full ’Jolly Ranchers’ candy nose, but more mild, only the slightest bit sour. Red cherry sweet body. A nice surprise for dessert! Very ripe fruit and quite alright.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle. Stari Meggysör is a good fruit beer with some fault. It has nice sour aroma, some yeast, and malt and hop at the end. A little bit thin and citric for me. And costly. :)
