3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish orange with small head of foam. Cherry scents dominate the aroma. Light malt presence with heavy sour sweet cherry flavour. Although sweet and sour, the balance is nice. Manifestly produced using cherry extract or syrup in my view but, the taste is not artificial at all. Great level of carbonation. Light bodied and very refreshing. Hardly any spice element, which is fine by me. The hop complexion is low and the brew is hardly bitter. However, I think the level of hoppiness is appropriate for this style of beer. Leaves a good impression despite slightly dry finish.
Sampler at Brewerkz. Hazy orange colour, thin white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Flavour is light sweet, grain, hint of sweet cherry and almonds. Grainy finish. Light bodied. Bad stuff. nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2009
Draught at Brewerkz, Singapore. Appears ruby with a medium white head. Aroma and flavour of sweet cherry candy. A very artificial taste and presence. It’s fizzy on the palate too. A touch of sourness in the finish. fiulijn (20992) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 16, 2007
Draught at the brewpubhighlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2006
Hazy amber color. Smells a bit like a beer left from the previois day. It tastes like a dry but pleasant Ale, with some good hops; the fruitness is almost impossible to detect, and unfortunately there is too much tannic bitterness. Unbalanced flavors.
Fruit beers are a regular fixture at this Singaporean brewpub but I can’t say this impressed. It tastes like the wheat beer laced with cherry essence but I’m happy to be corrected if that’s wrong. In the glass it’s a hazy unfiltered copper with a tawny glint. The aroma is very similar to the Wheat Beer with very little cherry presence. It’s not particularly fruity and remained muddy and ill-defined as it warmed. Thin body, moderate carbonation. There are clove notes, similar to the Wheat, and a thin chemical cherry note. Acidic finish. (Draught at brewpub)
