Dark copper, very hazy, massive beige head. Smell of fruity esters, light malts, hints of cherries, some spices. Medium sweet, fruity, some cherries, a bit too sweet, malty. Moderate bitter. Too boring
(Bottle) Brownish red colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, slightly sourish nose with cherries, raspberries, roasted almonds, vanilla and some grassy/herbal aromas. Malty, slightly tart taste with notes of cherries, red fruit, vanilla, almonds and a sweet and slightly sour finish with low bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. I was a bit sceptical to this idea, but it actually works quite well with both cherries, vanilla and almonds coming through. Nice one. alex_leit (5316) - Minsk, BELARUS - AUG 29, 2016
Bottle. Reddish-amber color. Aroma: cherries, wine, plums, almonds, candies. Taste: cherries, light sourness, sweet fruits, berries, good dessert. Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2016
A dark burgundy red ale with a very thin off white head, quickly dissipating. In aroma, nice sweet fruity malt with light corky notes, light ground cherry, light Brett, nice. In mouth, a dead beer, lactic notes, acrid mouth feel, watery bodied. Bottle is about 3years old but tastes taste like it was 10 years old. OminouSC2 (972) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2016
Red color. Aromas of fruit, cherry, rice and almonds. Slight bitter taste from the almonds. Lactose and cherries. A bit artificial tasting. Cool concept but the result isn’t great. MelvinKalksma (1833) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 28, 2016
Slight aroma of malts, fruit, cherry and acidity.
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with a slight/medium off-white white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, fruit and cherry; ends slightly sour with acidity.
This beer is very interesting and has loads of character. The flavour is rather intense and complex, but the aroma is almost not there at all.
