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 Iíve had. A decent enough desert beer, but others are better.

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 wasnít supposed to like this, Oh well!

Bottle. Light reddish brown with a pinkish finger-thick white head. Itís pretty cherryish on the nose, in an artificial way, with almond and white sugar. The flavor has raspberry, cherry, some almond and lots of sweetness. It also has that pleasant touch of cigar, cellar and dark sugars I appreciate about some Belgian beers. Medium to full body, almost sticky on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Lasting artificial and sweet berry finish. Sort of good, but way, way to artificial and sweet. 140713

RW80 (544) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2014
33cl bottle Appearance: red body, with a pink foamy head of 1 finger which has ok retention, good amount of lacing. Aroma: Little sweet, sour cherry candy sweetness on top of some malts. Taste: Sweet articicial candy red fruit with a bit of sourness and some malts. Sweetness is artificial, Just enough bitterness in the finish to say itís a beer medium body, above average carbonation. Well not my beer, too artificial sweet. Allthough itís just a beer not a alcopop allthough comming dangerously close to that. Vrijdag- Tjah is dit bedoelt als tegenhanger van de dessertwijn ? Drinkbaarder als kasteel. Maar er zit iets kunstmatigs aan de smaak. Dat heeft kasteel ook wel iets kunstmatigs, maar die is toch in evenwicht met zijn snoepjeskersen. Deze met meer rode vruchten is wat dubieus. Wel lekker qua koolzuur. Maar de zoetstof staat mij tegen. Duidelijk zoetstof toegevoegd. Als gewoon biertje een 4. Als dessertwijn vervanger een 6.5. Probleem blijft bij mij de kunstmatige zoetstof.

the aroma is fruity and malty with notes of lollipop... cherry juice is prevailing in taste, also some shades of sweet wine... rather strong beer... dry sweet aftertaste...

Bottle. Pours deep red brown with a small, off-white film head. Aroma has sweet cherries, vinious, light almonds. Medium carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of sugary sweetness, cherries, dry and dusty. Vinious and warming finish. Okay.
