2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A clear dark red/amber colored beer, with a beige head. It disappears rather quickly. The aroma is very fruity, cherries. Sweet with notes of malt. The taste is thin watery, touches of fruit, sweet, a bit bitter and dry. The aftertaste bittersweet is quickly gone.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
If I would have known this is a fruit beer I would not have bought it. Looked like an abbey dubbel style to me from the looks of the bottle (mine was in a brown bottle and a red label with everything written in Czech). Light amber colour, no head, almost completely flat. Aroma of artificial sweet cherry and candy (zuurtjes). Flavour is also candy cherry, and some wateriness. Body is very thin. Bad stuff.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled(330ml). -Light hazy mahagony coloured, like Castulus also no head, perfumey acidic cherry nose. Artificial and industrial cherry taste like cherry shampoo. Again no hops. Quite unpleasant cherry beer, Purkmistr Višnove is much better.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Another strange beer from Klášterní Pivovar Želiv. This beer also have no head and low carbonation. The aroma contains cinnemon and some hops. There is some hops in the taste also but overall this is like a Dr.Pepper softdrink combined with some hops.

courtesy of Pascal Sauser - clear reddish-brown colour with a poor head retention; charming aroma of black cherries, tea and herbs; low carbonation and sweet, moderate malt body; short aftertaste of cherries - well-made and very interesting

(6/24/08) Bottle at Pivovarsky Klub in Prague. Amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma of cherries, malt and caramel. Sweetish fruity flavor (some cherries and berries), caramel, malt and some weird taste I can’t put my finger on. Medium-bodied.

Dark amber color, small white head. Perfumic cherry aroma. Light cherry flavor in the watery palate. Like overriped cherries. No good.
