3.8    AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 16/20 Batch 2 of Cherry Flora, 375ML Bottle although this is technically batch 1 as a commercial release. It’s not fair to compare both batches but I might do it anyway because batch 1 was truly a flawless beer, very kriek-like in many ways. 2015 Flora Cherry was limit 1, released earlier this month.
