Great look, mild aroma. Tastes good, but Iacks depth in taste in some way. Still, good for not having artificial flavour.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Carringtons, Chorlton. Ruby red colour with a good sized pinkish head. Wood tinged aroma with plenty of cherry in there and a bit of funk. . Flavour has reasonable amount of tartness and sourness, with the expected cherry, though not overwhelmingly sweet. Detected an ever so slight metallic edge towards the finish. Really good balance on the whole and I enjoyed this.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, sun-dried red color with orange hues. Intense carbonation, lively pinkish white head leaves very fluffy lace on the flute glass. One dimensional aroma of sugary, sweet cherries and marzipan. Light, watery, slightly overcarbonated sour mouthfeel with cherry flavor profile. Short fruity, slightly tart finish. Commercial, industrial example of the style. Good thirst quencher, nothing more.

Of course a lot of cherries both in aroma and flavor. The cherry flavor did not feel quite genuine. High carbonation. Not that sour. Aftertaste was dry. Refreshing and easy to drink.

I adore Mort Subite. Such a nice beer to have on the off occasion. This one is laced with cherries. Aroma is very subtle but you can detect cherry and fruit. Taste is an explosion of taste. Cherry with the dry bitterness of cranberry with the bite of alcohol. Just a fantastic mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 mL Bottle. Amber / ruby red body with a rocky pale pink head that laces the glass generously. Cherry with hints of raspberry and cranberry dominate the aroma with an almost candy-like sweetness to it. Grains, yeast, citrus, and earthy notes are there too. Cherries with a lemon-like sourness and orange pekoe tea-like bitterness dominate the flavor, lemon and grapefruit peel stand out in the aftertaste, and cherries with a subtle candy sweetness linger in the finish.

375 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a slightly hazy reddish gold with nice lacey pink head. Sweet cherry nose, alightly candyish but not in a sickly way. Flavour is very fruity with cherry dominating but some hints of raspberry and cranberry. Finish is somewhat dry with a bit of oakiness. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fruity but not sweet aroma, slightly complex air of berries and barley but not too much. Has a nice head, and an attractive red-amber colour. I can taste cranberries, grapes, cherry, other fruits and then a dry finish. Really enjoyed this one.
