It pours hazy mahogany with ruby highlights; the head is pink and mousse-like. The aroma has notes of: black cherry, leather, and cough syrup. The taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter; there are notes of: sour cherries, strawberries, and cherry pits. The palate is medium bodied, has medium carbonation; has light astringency, and a long finish. Overall, I donít know why it gets such a bad rep - stylistically flawed, but damn tasty.

Piwo ciemnoczerwone, nieprzejrzyste. Piana słaba, szybko opada, nie lepi szkła. Aromat słodowy, owocowy. W smaku słodkie, z lekką kwaskowością. Pełne, daleko od ulepka. Wysycenie średnie, fajne odczucie w ustach.

PapaVillum (630) - Valby, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2015
33 cl, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, BB: 11/2016, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 22. juni 2015. Rødbrun, klar og rolig frugt-øl/Radler med lille gammelrosa skumtop på knap 1 cm. Denne svinder til gardiner samt kant og overflade efter kort tid. Aromaen, der møder næsen, er tyggegummi og svagere noter af kirsebær. Smagen er frisk og sødlig, men der sniger sig en balancerende bitterhed ind, som ligger fint bagerst i svælget. En lille let syrlighed spiller en mindre rolle. Den høje alkoholprocent er i smagen nærmest umærkelig. Opsummering: medium sødme, meget let syrlighed og let bitterhed. Kroppen er mellem fyldig, og karboneringen frisk og behagelig på et middel niveau. Rar mundfølelse og en olieret konsistens. Afslutningen er bittersød med overvægt på sidstnævnte og middel lang. Ganske fin, og stærk i volumen, sommerøl med masser af smag, som ikke kammer over i sødme. Den giver associationer i retning af Founders Rübæus, og er, som jeg husker den, mindst ligeså god.

Guilty pleasure! Low head, dusty brown red colour. Fruit and currants, sweet and sour, winey cidery abit like a slurr wine drink. Taste is all cherry fruit and sour sweet with a light spice aftertaste. I enjoyed drinking this.

Location: 750 ml bottle from Sparrow-Uptown, 6/12/15

Aroma: The aroma is pretty sweet, plenty of frutiness/cherry juice, raspberry, not a whole lot else
Appearance: Purple-reddish, with a thin ring of off-white head with a hint of pink, and mild, spotty lace
Flavor: Tastes extremely sweet, overly so, with the fruity sweetness allowing nothing else through
Palate: The mouthfeel is decent, it is somewhat cloying, but otherwise, not a bad feel
Overall Impression: Much closer to drinking a juice than a beer. Just way too sweet. If I wanted to drink a glass of juice Iíd be much happier with this flavor then if I was looking for something even remotely approaching a beer. I feel like itís closer to a vodka-cranberry (from a competition standpoint at least) than it is to a beer. I didnít dislike this, I purchase some Ocean Spray occasionally, but it isnít beer, and there isnít any nearly enough of the tart/sour notes that the description promises to balance out the sweetness. I actually had quite a difficult time rating this. It isnít crazy flawed, and it isnít bad, but it is way too sweet. I donít know. I settled here.

Tap - virtually no head, dark red/plum color, tart cherry aroma but extremely sweet cherry taste - too sweet for my taste, they aren't kidding when they say it's a good dessert beer, reminds me of alcoholic cherry punch a little, not the best, definitely expected better ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from a 12 oz glass. Aroma is almost all tart cherry with a little sweet almond. Taste is tart cherry with a little bit of sweetness on the back end. Nice dry finish, tasty beer.
