3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle purchase at Georgio’s Liquors for $8.95. With the ABV marked at 10.6. Dark cloudy amber color with thin lace in the snifter. Aroma is black cherries covered in candy sugar and plums .
The flavor has mild cherry upfront leading into dark fruits and Belgian candi sugar. The alcohol is well hidden with a softer carbonation level. Overall it is about what it should be, I would drink it again if presented but not ever going out of my way to get another bottle.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle thanks to Mark (@Mg228). The pour is a strange dark ruby red with a big white head and minimal lace. The aroma is typically Belgian with a nice addition of strong cherry. I think it might be a little lore sour than anything, but it's not bad. The flavor is a little more barnyard-y with a solid sour hit. The cherry is really hidden here. The mouth feel is a touch thin and nicely carbonated. The aftertaste is a little sour and lightly fruity. Not too bad

Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber-red with a good-sized off-white head. Malty aroma, with wood, berries, yeast, vanilla. The cherries come through more in the taste, starts very tart, then picks up malt toastyness, with some caramel and wood. Lingering sour cherry malt notes. Nice!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy brown with tall, long-lasting, foamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of barnyard yeast, cherries, bready malt and spices. Body is full and crisp. Spicy hops, funky yeast, bready malt, brown sugar, minerals and sour cherries fill the mouth. Finish is long and spicy. Enjoyable brew.

Bomber. Medium/dark brown with an average off-white head.
Malty aroma. No cherry anywhere.
The flavor is that of a dark Belgian Ale. I didn’t get any cherry here at all.

12oz Bottle, 6th July 2014, gift from a friend. Pours hazy reddish brown with virtually no head or lacing. Rich malty and fruity aroma with cherry and plum notes. Intense cherry and nutty malts in-mouth with earthy pungency and subtle spiciness. Finish is fruity with rich cherry and citric tanginess. Pleasant zingy texture and full body. Lush.

Bottle at Paul’s May 2014 tasting. Pours a copper amber body with white fizzy lacing. Aroma is light cherry and lots of grain. Mouthfeel is super boozy with alcohol coming over the palate in full force; followed by notes of grain, cherry cough syrup and watered down booze. No.

You must really like cherry to get at this. It has a mild cherry flavour, and a lighter mouthfeel Belgium brown base. And I like cherry.

Dark brown pour. Some ruby highlights. Small off-white almost tan head. Not much in the way of lacing. Slight sourness in the malty aroma. Fruit. Taste is a tart sour cherry. Finishes tart and sweet.

Bottle. God damn this thing was fucking rough. The only bottle at the tasting that I saw that had a good 70 percent left in it. Smoke and acid was my take from this bottle. Not a hint of real cherry to be found. Ill pass on this if offered in the future.
