Not often do I get a chance to have fruit beers, so I decided to give it a go. Found this out in dirty Surrey so I snapped it up. There were a bunch of flavors to choose from so I opted for the cherry because I like cherries and it seemed like the hardest one to fuck up. It’s hard to make cherry taste bad, unless you like, dip it in gasoline or something. It would take an extreme amount of fuckery to make a cherry taste bad, is what I’m getting at.
The bottle itself is a smallish wine bottle with an oversized cap that had a cork underneath. Was not expecting that. The label itself is pretty old looking, like the it was brewed in the late 70s or some shit. Also notable, nowhere on the bottle does it display the alcoholic content. I have no idea how powerful this is, although I suspect it’s around the 4% mark.
It pours a deep purple with no head and a good size purple collar… I’m sensing a trend here.
It smells like cherries.
It tastes like cherry, is tart as fuck and sweet as all hell. Notes of cherry over a cherry background with a giant cherry aftertaste. Fucking cherry bruh.
The mouthfeel is light, sparkling and sticky.
It’s hard to go in depth with this, because it’s all cherry. I enjoyed it, because I like cherry, but this isn’t really a beer. The only thing beer about this is the fact that it was made with wheat and yeast, but you can’t taste it because MUTHAFUKIN CHERRIES.
4/5 Ranking as a delicious cooler. If you like cherry, you’ll like this.
0.5/5 Ranking as a beer, because it is not.
“She’s my cherry pie
Put a smile on your face
Ten miles wide
Looks so good, make a grown man cry
She’s my cherry pieeeeee” – Warrant ‘Cherry pie’
Now this wretched song is stuck in my head for the rest of the day. Great.
