A: More a dark amber colour than red, small beige head

S: Just cherries but not a lot and not overly sweet

T: cherries but once again not a lot of it, a bitter touch and even sourness in the aftertaste

M: very thin, too much fine carbonation

O: I was expecting worse but it's fine certainly not among the best cherry beers i have drunk already, but it's okay

Got this can across the way from the train station in Schaerbeek, Brussels, Belgium yesterday. Kinda had high hopes for this especially after I poured and took a whif. Looks great with a big pink foamy, frothy, textured head and loads of lace. Aroma was apparent immediately upon opening the can of pie cherries. Closer sniff gave up some floral qualities too. Flavor was not so good; body either. Taste was very shallow; only of the aroma and barely any beer. Body was super thin. Tawdry. Somebody's trying to get by on the cheap. I call you out sir! Think I'm being a little over kind in the ratings actually.
