Maria (10169) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 11, 2009
The color is beautiful, slightly hazy, ruby red and the small head is pink. The aroma has notes of sourish cherries, marzipan and almonds. The flavour has notes of sour cherries, slightly bitter almonds and a little fruity sweetness. The body is rather thin.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2009
Draft at Rattle N Hum. Pours a bronze body with a white head. Fruity fresh pear with hints of banana’s. Drinking this beer is like biting into one of the most lush pears fresh and absolutely delicious. Pear skins and nectar with a dry tart finish. Awesome brew!

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 8, 2009
Bottle bonus from fiver29, thanks John! Pours a cloudy cherry red with zero head. Nose of sweet, dried cherries. Flavor is of tart cherries, not much more to this brew than that.

JoeinDahlem (1329) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 1, 2009
Bottle at Pre-ZBF. Nice ruby color with pinkish-white head. Nose like cherry pie, including that buttery crust. Flavor is not quite tart but more soft and floral, like a French wine instead of California zin. Pretty clean and refreshing. Really enjoyed it, actually.

Yves (2271) - 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 (8510) - 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 (11191) - 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 (9233) - 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.
