2006 Bottle- consumed May 2008
Highly carnonated, it poured a rich garnet color with a healthy head, and a brilliant lace of bubbles on the glass.
Aroma is that of cherry cola, no hop nose whatsoever. Right on the money for the style.
Taste of cherries, currants, raisins. Almost rummy. Rich, but not overbearing. Malty ayet well balanced.
Very smooth medium bodied beer that has aged well. Not so chewy but very warming.
It's highly drinkable, but not something to over indulge in!

355ml Bottle from BeersOfEurope.co.uk (£5.39):
Amber with brownish red tinges throughout the body and topped with a decent sized, foamy beige head that is nice considering the abv. but sadly is doesn't hold all that well, turning to a single patch in the centre of the surface after a little under a minute.
Sweet with a solid fruity aroma that is dominated by cherries yet doesn't overpower the senses. There is some spice with lots of darker, ripe fruits. Dates and some figs feature and there is plenty of sugary sweetness & the alcohol is very well hidden too.
Sweet with the lambic style cherries & some spice, a little sugar and various other sweet fruits and malts plus a touch of yeast. The alcohol comes through a little stronger here but again it doesn't overpower or spoil the taste.
Sweet & very well balanced with the alcohol hidden quite well, coming through just enough to give the beer a nice feel to it. The finish is dry but not overly whilst carbonation is good and the beer is smooth, creamy and frighteningly easy to drink.
Very nice beer that starts off excellent and seems to get better and better after it's had a little time to settle and open up. It's smooth, well balanced and bursting with flavour. An incredible beer.
