TChrome (1431) - Bedford, Texas, USA - JUN 10, 2003
Very intersting brew. Pours up looking more like wine than beer. Aroma is dominant cherry as is flavor which is a little sour. Pretty yummy.

The Etruscan (554) - Tuscany, ITALY - JUN 2, 2003
Pale pink weak head. Bright deep red color. Aroma is fruity, cherry and slighly acidic. Flavor is cherry too and slightly sour, ending in a sweet and moderately acidic long finish. Medium bodied.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2003
Deep red colour with a thick and foamy but mostly diminishing pink tinted head. Sour cherry aroma. Flavour of tart and sweet cherries. Palate is flat and light but refreshing.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 The cherry aroma is the best thing about this beer. The appearance reminded me of brandy but more cloudy. Sour fruit taste. Also some taste of brandy, possibly from oak barrels. Maybe something was lost due to the green bottle.

Cherry aroma, sour taste. Very nice on a warm day. Not sweet. Light red colour in the glass.

I wouldn't recommend this beer warm, but it is very nice when it's very cold. Mainly because it isn't as sickly sweet when it is cold. A dark cherry colour for a dark cherry flavouring. No terrible aftertaste and not at all bitter. Almost too fruity to be a beer, and much too heavy to be a wine.

madsberg (10592) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2003
Bottled at the Danish Beerfestival 2003: Dark red couled. Perfumed nose. Cherry and vinegar. Loads of cherry in the flavour. Vague sourness. Reminds me a little of "hubba bubba" chewing gum. Not bad at all.

argo0 (11823) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 9, 2003
Plum-colored body with small light purple head. Aroma is cherry, slightly tart but more sweet, definite element of cough syrup. Taste is soft cherry, medium sweetness, medium tartness. Finishes slightly medicinal.

GreatDane (101) - Skævinge, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2003
OK, this is the 3rd time I have tasted a fruit beer. The first, the last and only time ever. What a horrible experience!!

iam (369) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2003
Red-brown colour with apinkish rapidly diminishing bubbly head. Aromas of ripe cherry (duh). Lighter than what I expected. Reminded me of a cheap rose wine.
