Craft Clerkenwell. Bottle tasting. Thanks to Paul for this one. Almost clear pink tinted red beer, small but bright pink head. Palate is light, mildly crisp and semi dry. Nice cherry, not too sour and just a little tart, Whisper of marzipan. Trace of tangy lemon. Light crisp finish. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting at Matt’s; 5.9% ABV
Bright blood and ruby color with pinkish color. Very nice aroma, lively, some cherry, but the mild acidity creates a berry impression. Dry, tart, light cherry flavor, but weak; light final astringency.
Simpler than expected; very nice aroma, but lacking in flavor.

Light sweet flavor with tart, quenching cherries, moderate acidity, some grass, salt. Light bodied with average, sprtzy carbonation. Refreshing finish with more tart cherries, mild tannins, slight bitter grass. Lovely stuff. Supremely drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, pours a pinkish ruby red with a small pink head. Aroma brings out heaps of potent tart cherries, wheat, and a little funk – this is a cherry bomb. Flavour is quite potent on the fruit as well, with lightly tart cherries, wheat, and a very small touch of funk. Hugely cherry-dominated. Doesn’t strike me as a Berliner, but this is exquisite nonetheless. Excellent stuff, but I do prefer the framboise.

Draught, 5.8% at the brewpub. Subtle cherry sauce aroma. Hazy deep red colour. Very small white head. The flavour is nicely citric, does not taste much of fruit, but is balanced well by it. Dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle picked up at BrewDog Clapham. It pours crazy bright red with a medium pink head. The nose is earthy, barnyard, mild sweetness, cherry, berry skin and candy cane. The taste is crisp, tart, dry, juicy cherry, sherbet, almond, marzipan undertones and light mouth-pucker with a dry finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Simple, tart and easy-going. Super drinkable stuff.
