0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Een paar slokken waren voldoende om te weten dat dit niets voor mij is. Eerder een kersenfrisdrank dan bier, in mijn ogen. Aroma is een overdaad aan kersen en suikers. De roze schuimkraag maakt het af.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sour initially with funk & lots of cherries, very lambic like & definitely Belgian in style. Sweet with plenty of sugar & tart with a candy like aroma at the end.
Cherry colored with 1cm, light pink head that holds well given the abv. Eventually halves in size.
A lot of cherries & tart with a sour taste plus lots of sugar as well, adding to the sweetness. Some light alcohol in the taste but it’s not overpowering & the cherries mask it for the most part.
Smooth, light-medium body that is sour initially with some sweetness not far behind. Carbonation is about medium but there is a slight fizz to the beer with touches of dryness right at the end.
Quite a nice beer although both Delirium Tremens or Nocturnam are a lot better. Enjoyable with a sweet taste that is almost like a lambic and some pleasant touches of alcohol as well that are unusual in fruit beers.

Cherry, almonds, and earth aroma. Dark red/pink color almost artificial?.. Taste is cherry all the way. Sour, sweet, almost a fruit wine. I do like it, I can see most people not though.

I really liked this. Pours a deep crimson . aromas are over ripe cherries and almond. Flavors follow suit. Sweet cherries with a slightly bitter finish. Don’t understand the low score

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.33L bottle. Pours deep red with a frothy, light red head. Aromas of cherry, cough drop, and bubblegum. Very sweet up front, with flavors of cherry and raspberry. Mid-flavors bring out more of the sour as well as alcohol, so it begins to be more reminiscent of cough syrup. Finish is decently sour and balances the sweetness, with warm alcohol left in the chest and throat. Medium to full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and mild, but sharp carbonation. Overall, a sweet/sour beer that is the most like cough syrup of any beer I’ve had. A decent enough desert beer, but others are better.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Pours a deep dark red with a thick and long lasting pinkish khaki colored head. Aroma is surprisingly neutral with just a hint of cherries, but pretty bland and more akin to a pencil eraser. Flavor is pretty solid with some nice cherry sourness, some burnt accents, some red licorice sugary sweetness. Nice carbonation in the mouthfeel. Looking at the ratings, I wasn’t supposed to like this, Oh well!
