Sampled at ESBLS. Red in color. Three words: Ludens Cough Drops. That was the taste to me. I used to eat those as candy and not for a cough. No alcohol tasted.

Pours a deep red, almost opaque with a thin pinkish head. Very nice aroma of sour cherries. This is the best of the beers that I sampled tonight. The balance of sweet and sour and texture and flavor was perfect. Nice lingering flavor with no harsh aftertaste or alcohol burn. I enjoyed this a lot and so did the others with me. Definitely on my shopping list next time I go looking.

Taster at the cafe. 2.5€ 8% It poured deep red with a pinkish head. It has a sweet cherry juice aroma. Light bodied, sweet cherry and caramel flavor. While candyish it’s not terrible.

Pours cloudy red. Smells very sweet and slightly rotten. Tastes good tho! Kinda meaty. Like the framboise lambic but a little more malty.

Acid303 (496) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - AUG 16, 2015
2 33cl bottles, shared with friends. Pours red/garnet with small pinkish head. Good lacing. Smells like a strawberry icecream with some sour. The flavour is candy and cherries. Slightly sour on the palate, a bit too cloying regarding sweetness. Medium body, good carbonation. Drinkable, not the kind of beer I’d usually have though.

Slight bitter taste, sweet-sour cherries. Nice red colour, smell is sweet. Not too carbonated, tingely on the toungue, bit sticky to the mouth.

Paladares (102) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 10, 2015
Botella. Marrón rojiza. Muy poca espuma. Aroma muy frutal, a cereza..., o más bien clavado a la clásica piruleta corazón Fiesta. Dulce, como no podía ser de otra manera pero enseguida se mezcla con un toque más alcohólico. Para postres puede funcionar bien. Curiosa.
