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.

A pesar de que reconozco que parece excesivamente adulcorada, me puse púo de esta cerveza en el delirium café de Bruselas y quizás gracias a lo bien que me lo pasé tengo tan buen recuerdo de esta cerveza. Es roja oscuro, con espuma también con tonos rosados, muy dulce y sabor a cereza. Parece un refresco, pero cuidado, porque tiene 8° de alcohol.

drowland (7774) - Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2016
5/23/16. 750mL bottle from Warehouse. Murky dark red pour under a very small khaki head. Whooaaaaa, sniff and a sip, I’m not sure what I was expecting, but it wasn’t this. When I looked it up when I bought it I just looked if I had it or not and didn’t look into what the beer was. Some sort of crappy sweet sour attempt? Anyway, here goes. Won’t judge from first sip. Gotta get through a whole bottle, though. Should have saved this for a night Mrs. Owl is home. Not because she’d like it, but because we could split it. Actually, if she didn’t like it, she’d just make me drink it, so I guess I’m back where I started. Oh right, the beer. Huuuuuuge metallic aroma, like a handful of pennies, some cherry aspect, loads of sweetness. Sweet flavor, cherries, cherry candy, mild tartness, marzipan, table sugar, a big mouthful of pennies. Less sweet, less metal, and more sour would make this much better.

PenultimaRonda (8) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 23, 2016 does not count
(Cas)- Esta cerveza/ refresco alcohólico tiene aroma suave pero dulzón (normal debido a la cereza que tiene), con un aspecto turbio oscuro pero con reflejos rojizos muy elegantes, aunque el sabor... es otro tema, ya que parece más un refreco al estilo de la "Cherry Coke" (Dios los años 90, me acabo de poner nostálgico) pero no es tan empalagosa (en comparación con otras de este estilo). (Gal)- Esta cervexa/ refresco alcohólico ten aroma suave pero dulzón (normal por mor da cereixa que ten), cun aspeto turbio escuro pero con reflexos avermellados moi elegantes, aindaque o sabor... é outro tema, xa que parece mais un refresco ó estilo da "Cherry Coke" (meu Deus os anos 90, acábome de por nostálxico) mais non é tan empalagosa (en comparación con outras deste estilo).

beerbaaron (1926) - Arizona, USA - MAY 19, 2016
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 Draft at delirium cafe. Red ber with frothy pink head. Fruity syrup dominates. Moderately cloying. A hint of Belgian yeast. Medicine. Ugh.

gallaghermurph (49) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Pours as red as it’s name - like a deep cherry with a big pink cream head. Aroma remains yeast and sourish fruits but with a hint of punch. Flavor is sugary fruit with a bread back. Light carbonation as if someone poured cherry-heavy fruit punch into a beer. A slight sour aftertaste. Honestly a good alternative to a sangria. Really can only drink one, but on a hot evening (like tonight) and having had too much white wine lately, this is a great alternative.

Tomada en el Kraken. Correcta cerveza con sabor a cereza. Potente, bastante decente. Del estilo de la Kastel Rogue.

bb (8270) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Bottle. Reddish-brown beer with a pinkish head. Yeast and light malt aroma with light fruitiness. Big cherry flavor with yeast and light malt. Medium bodied. Cherry lingers with yeast and light spice.

Gurthnar (4553) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 12, 2016
Bottle from Drinkshop. Aroma some lactic acid, sour cherries, general fruitiness. Inviting. Head quickly drops off, hazy deep ruby colour. Taste is lightly sour and moderately sweet, almost no bitterness or hops flavour present. Mostly cherry and lightly lactic. Feels natural though, quite good even though a bit singledimensional. Enjoyable, drinkable.
