Soured cherries over very pastry dough in the nose. Hazy brown body is topped by a fizzy, fully diminishing head. Flavour is very sour with a sugar-like, juicy sweetness in the aftertaste. Strong hard pointy carbonation yet body is pretty lifeless. I guess this one just didn’t last well at all. Oh well. Better luck next time. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle (Gift, Jul-07). Thanks, CapFlu. mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2007
Pours a dark red/amber with a brief ring of foam. Yeasty, dark fruit aroma - not bad. Tastes of tart cherries, yeasty, slightly chocolatey and roasty. There’s a bit of unobtrusive hopping in here, too. Decent carbonation in the body, but thin. Nice warming aftertaste. This is an interesting beer, probably the same base as the other two fruit beers but less artificial tasting. Enniskillen (2060) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Dark ruby, no head. Heavy cherry, chocolate, brown sugar, very light alcohol. Taste has a very light hoppiness, cherries, brown sugar, spice, and a oatmeal note. CapFlu (5129) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 7, 2007
(650ml bottle) Purchased at the brewpub for $10. Pours a thin, dissipating tan head with a orange copper body. Nose of alcohol, iodine, cherry pits and yeast. Its somewhat similar to a malty lambic. I’m fairly impressed. Nice.
