4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at CBFZ 2016. Rather soft aroma of cherries and a bit of barrel. Intense fruit flavour of cherries, tart, bitter, sweet and sour all at the same time. Fizzy carbonation, juicy. Dry kirsch palate. Great balance between components. A beer that deserves to be on the top list of Swiss beers.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Vienna tasting February 2016. Many thanks! Ruby-brown colour. Quite clean fermentation-wise. There is lots of dark cherry in both aroma and flavour. The roasted malts are present, but in a very restrained, carefully balanced amount. Moderate sourness, but easy drinking with a full complex mouthfeel. Very good.
