1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Slightly chemical looking orange red with medium pink head. A: cherry sweets, borderline fabricated, light tartness, hint of sour ale. T: sweetness of added sugar hits the palate first. Soft drink cherry taste with dito mouthfeel. Sugary development which reminds of dextrose. Aftertaste is sligthly acidic, sour, with unpleasant chemical sourness (additive?).

Draught @ Rattle&Hum. Dark red with small foamy whitish head, sharp cherry liqeur aroma, sweet cherry taste over caramel background, long sweetish finish. Nice except for the medicinal feeling of its aroma.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une bière très fruitée à la robe brillante et à la fine mousse mais l’ensemble est un peu trop écoeurant à mon goût

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, shared with Sandra in Gronigan. Murky purplish-pink, bubbly pink head-- looks great! Aroma and flavour of straight-up cherry juice, very sweet. Maybe a bit of yeasty undertones, but waaaay to sweet for me to enjoy. Almost like a cherry version of Fruili. Blech.

Sample at beer bloggers conference, Brussels 2015
super sweet to the extent that base beer obscured, not a fan but daisy enjoyed. Bright scarlet, pinkish head, rich cherry nose, sweet, a little thin, no tartness, a little sharp and acrid, swwet but not cloying just OTT

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle poured to small snifters, displaying a hazed, reddish copper hue, with a modest layer of white head foam that reduced quickly to a bubbly ring and light film, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was pronounced cherry, somewhat maraschino-like, and tartness. The taste was similar and just as expressive, with a nice creaminess to the mouthfeel, not overly sweet, medium bodied, and lively, but non-fizzy carbonation. Thoroughly enjoyed it for what it was, a tasty, dessert/aperitif-like fruit beer.
