Yves (2073) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - MAR 29, 2009
Red coloured beer with small reddish coloured head and no carbonation visible. Sour fruity aroma. Full palate bit sweet. Finish is sour, less near the end. Good one.

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2009
Tap at Ginger Man. Deep ruby red beer with no head at all. Aroma is a little bit sweet with loads of cherry sweetness. Light fruitiness with a touch of tannic fruit skin character. A bit of cherry pit/almondy flavour. The flavour is nice with a touch of soft cherry character. Fruity with a soft sweetness. Quite thin-bodied though. Light tartness on the back. There are some nice components but it needs to be amped up.

thewolf (10792) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2009
Bottle. [thank you, harrisoni]
Pours deep red with a very fizzy, pink head. The head is gone before the entire bottle is poured. Aroma has toffee, almonds and sweet cherries. High carbonation, fair dryness, but quite thin mouthfeel. Flavour is light tart (thankfully), cherries, caramel and marzipan in the finish. Okay but not very special.

hopscotch (8552) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2009
Draft… Pre-C&P’sLYFO Throwdown… Clear blood-red ale with a small, creamy, pink head. The nose is subtle; just a pinch fruity and a smidge spicy. Extremely restrained; too much work pulling any aroma at all out of the glass. Light-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Perfectly-balanced. Very lightly acidic and just a touch fruity. Much like the aroma, the flavor is ultra subtle and thin. Crisp, clean finish. Not much too it. Six percent alcohol? It’s well-hidden… not always an asset. Belgian table beer, I think.

FatPhil (8636) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 22, 2009
330ml bottle (One Pint Pub, Helsinki, Belgian Beer Weeks 2009)
Cherry and pipparkakku aroma. Packed full of cherry - not sweet but sharp real cherries with the skins included. Crisp and dry, but alas a little thin. Covers 6% perfectly. Tasty - worth having again in summer when there isn’t snow on the ground outside.

Ungstrup (28463) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2009
Bottled. A hazy deep red beer with a thin pink head. The aroma is sweet with good notes of cherries. The flavor is lightly tart with notes of cherries, and light notes of nuts and wood.

diabel (1590) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - MAR 17, 2009
At BLES Bierhappening 2008, Zottegem, Belgium
Deep, red body. Off-white to pink head. Strong, intense aroma of cherries. Lightly sweet, quite balanced flavour. Flavour is not too sweet, quite dry instead. Good fruit beer. Quite simple but full flavour of cherries.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2009
On tap at Oldsmar Tap House. Dark reddish pink pour, fluffy creamy white head and a huge amount of lacing. Tart nose, cherries and some dry cereal with slight sweet sugary notes. Nice subtle tart profile in the flavor, with a fair amount of sweet notes, caramel and cherries. Drinkable, balanced and has a oily mouthfeel.

MiP (13055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2009
Bottle. Good aroma of sour cherries. Sweet and acidic. Very dark red colour, might be a little hazy. Very small pink head. The flavour has a good level of cherry, quite fad and ripe. Not really sweet, but slightly acidic and finishing rather dry. A good thirst-quencher.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAR 14, 2009
Tap at OTH. Pours a deep red/ruby with thin white head. Aroma had a light cherry tartness and was very enjoyable. Taste, plenty of tart cherry and most of it seemed to be off-set by a mild sugary sweetness. Light in body, this one was easy to drink, not too complex but damn tasty. For the style, it might have been a little too sweet with not much sourness.
