Out of curiosity, I think corresponds to the proposal, but I saw no difference with a champagne cooler or cheaper... Appearance: inviting bottle with paper wrapper; in translucent red glass with little foam, but persistent. Aroma: here I remembered some beer, because the malt appears slightly. Taste: sweet, actually has cherry leaves an aftertaste of malt and sweet; said despite the 6% alcohol, did not find them.

Pours dark brown (dark ruby into the light), small pinkish head that goes very thin very fast, leaves just some lacing.
Balsamic vinegar in the smell from afar, closer in a lot more dark cherry, some blueberry, raspberry, a big sugary sweetness creeps up, some faint hay, some faint wood barrel notes. Nice sweet/sour balance, somewhat tilting towards the first.
Aaand taste is very sweet. Starts with heavily sugared pitless cherries (exactly like the ones prepared for making jam), with the sourness in the back, gaining ground bit by bit, with a nice dark cherry flavour. Some blueberries, faint raspberries. A touch of vinegar and cider apples. Alcohol and some wood notes, creating something extremely similar to homemade cherry brandy. Some vanilla and marzipan. Very low green hay. Finishes as it starts, sweet.
Medium body, medium carbonation, almost smooth actually.
It's refreshing, it's tasty, but it's way too sweet for my taste. I know it's not a full-on sour beer, so the rating will be given considering usual Belgian fruit beers.
