Courtesy vertical bacon strips again. Murky burnt orange with thin head. Suspended particulates. Smells like candy. Raspberry tartness but mostly cherry. Quite sweet taste. Tingles my tongue nicely. Subtle sour cherry. Weird... Just got a nutty taste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled @ home. Slight hazy glowy red orange color, medium lasting off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of sweet cherry, bit marzipan (almonds), slight flowery hop, hint of vanilla, hint of spicy yeast. All quite in balance. Pretty sweet taste, hint of sour, slightly bitter. Kind of belgian touch to it. Decent stuff.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really unique brew. Pours out a amberish brown with a red glow throughout the body. The head is thick foamy light beige with a slight pink tinge. Tons of big lacing rings. The nose is sweet and rich smelling with a light hop and tart cherries. Not too much of a distinct roast of grainy malt, just sweet brown sugary malts. Sipping this one, I first get a thick molasses and brown sugar richness with an obvious creamy lactose presence. A bit of fruit, but not a huge amount by any means. The finish is a bit dry and astringent, but not hugely complex. I’m also not noticing the 8% ABV at all. A really nice rich and smooth beer with some sweet and tart cherries.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden brown with a glowing red light a soft creamy cap produced during pour floats on the top, tons of lacing left on every sip. Aroma is mild and soft, Belgian style yeast, very mild Disaronno liquor, I’m trying to smell cherry but I think I’m fooling my self....it might be there but I’m not sure. Thick soft mouth feel, very creamy. Big whiff of bulk almonds just hit me. Just poured the rest of the bottle into the glass and small floaties are every where. Belgian yeast profile, leathery earth that I’m associating with hop bitterness, cherry port in the finish and after taste. I WANT MORE CHERRY!!! Every third sip I get hints of vanilla but its faint. Man is this easy to drink. Picking up sour notes the warmer it gets. Good beer glad I drank it.....This kick-ass mouth feel has made the marks to high, but it is what it is.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Paper wrapped 375ml bottle. Pours a very murky & dark ruby red grapefruit colour. Large pinky white head settles down to a fine lace. Aromas of cherry, ruby red grapefruit, almond, hint of woody vanilla. Flavour is mostly sweet cherry fruit, with a touch of acidic tartness. A little too sticky sweet for me; almost like sucking on a cherry drop. Finish is slightly acidic but it quickly loses the battle with the ever present sweetness. Alcohol is hidden very well. Not sure what to make of this beer; too sweet for my tastes.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Paper wrapped 375ml green bottle. "Holdbar til 31/08/14". Red colour, some haze and floaties. Big whitish head with a pink tinge to it, full and fluffy, good creamy lacing. Nose has some cherry fruit, a trace of tartness but mostly sweet fruit. In the mouth the beer has some bright cherry notes, some tart and acidic notes from the fruit, almost wheaty in the middle, but looking at the ingredients on the label I’m guessing its rice or almond. Some hop flavour toward the end and a little bitterness. Medium body, decent strength to the carbonation, 8% alv stays well hidden. I thought the intention might have been to make a cherry-sundae beer, but I’m not sure. I liked this beer, whatever it was.
