BBE 14/09/2018. Punertavan musta väri, olematon vaahto. Hedelmäisän kirsikkainen maku, suht aidon oloinen, hapan, raikas, simppeli, hyvä.

Bottle @ Cesenatico, Italy (2017)
Objętość: 375 ml
Data ważności: 14.09.2018
Dodatki : Kriek z dodatkiem 15% wiśni.
Piwo ma kolor bardzo ciemnej czerwieni. Jest dość czyste pod światło. Piana biało-różowa, lekka. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Przez umiarkowany czas wisi nad piwem. Według informacji na etykiecie piwo leżakowało w dębowych beczkach. Aromat jest winny, raczej słodki, zero kwaśnych sugestii. W dużej mierze zdominowany przez wiśnie. W tle może minimalna dzikość. W smaku kompot z wiśni, dżem owocowy, słodki likier wiśniowy. Jest także sporo cukru. Piwo bliższe raczej jakiemuś Fruit Ale. Beczki nie czuć zupełnie. Piwo jest bardzo słodkie w smaku, mało ma wspólnego z Kriekiem. Niemniej jednak w kategorii soczku pije się świetnie ;)

evannell (1136) - Kraków, POLAND - MAR 26, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2017 Piwo wygląda bardzo ładnie.Głęboki malinowo-wiśniowy kolor; różowawa, dość obfita, w miarę gęsta piana. Zapach wiśni i marcepanu, trochę pralinkowy, lekko kwasowo-octowy. W smaku wiśniowa bomba. Słodycz na umiarkowanym poziomie, kwaśność również. Naprawdę wyważone piwo. Myślę, że dość łatwe do wypicia dla każdego.

czar (9059) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2017
on tap at le saint-bock, mtl. unclear medium dark copper-red pour with a nice reviving pink head offering some retention and lacing. sweet cherries, mulled wine, other sweetness - berry jam sweetened with white refined sugar; cloves, cinnamon, pepper et al., very light tartness - not only citric acidity. moderate carbonation, light body - oily; faintly tart and sweet woodsy finish. sweet and linear but inoffensive.

ianwelby (1384) - SCOTLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Clear red beer, thin white head. Distinct cherry aroma and flavour. Some maltiness to it as well. The fruit is sharp and tangy but refreshing and not sickly at all. Nice, tangy aftertaste. A good beer anyway but it’d be a great summer beer.
