(bottle - 330 ml) Red pour with a thin head. Sweet cherry aroma with a light dryness underneath. Sweet cherries up front with a definite dry almond middle and a slightly tart but still sweet cherry finish. Really nice.

StilleStorm (716) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2014
DAA; Bottle 0, 33l. Pours hazy, murky reddish brown with a average, frothy, lacing, lasting off-white head. Nose is intense chemical cherries, malt, caramel, almond, red berries, light citrus and spice. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet, light citrus, warming and somewhat artificial lasting. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. I love cherries, artificial or not..

chinchill (1871) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 13, 2014
On tap at the Thirsty Monk (AVL). Dark red-amber body with a very good head. Loads of dark cherry aroma; hints of almonds and light spicing. Alcohol esters. Flavor. Medium tartness wins out over a noticeable sweetness and mild bitterness. Strong but appealing and balanced flavor.

Draft. Poured cloudy red color with moderate fizzy white color head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Good sour berry aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate sour berry flavor with a moderate tart fruit bite finish of medium duration. Interesting beer.

"from notes: another one I went into with high expectations that just didn’t deliver. i don’t care for the sickly sweet cherry combined with light almond, in the aroma or flavor. otherwise average. "

stevoj (2157) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 11, 2014
A nice kriek, but very close to bordering on cough syrup sweetness. Pours out a hazy pink, with velvety soft pink head., some sticky lacing. Aroma is straight up cherries, and some plum. Taste is the same as the aroma, very sweet. Short finish with some sticky hard candy lingering on the palate.

Bule (756) - California, USA - SEP 11, 2014
On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a pinky red color with a bit of head. Mildly sweet cherry, though a little bitter harshness.

Pours like a cherry soft drink. Notes of club soda, cherry cough syrup, and plastic. A truly unpleasant little experience of a beer. I recommend having it with a family member you hate but have to put up with. Use this beer to tell your friends you will no longer brook their unapologetic casual racism. Use this beer to tell your high school boyfriend it’s over. Use this beer to tell your Senator he sucks. Use this beer to quit drinking.

DrSilverworm (6372) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 8, 2014
4oz on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Nearly totally hazy dark red color, kind of raspberry colored. Off-white, kind of pinkish head. Looks nice. Leaves good ridge of lace. Big cherry fruitiness in the nose. Kind of a mildly sour tart cherry. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Slick texture. Cherry dominates the flavor, mild spice. A little cough medicine-y (as far as flavor, not taste), but I like it. Tasty, fun stuff to try.

One of the best fruit beer I’ve tasted. Delirium bitterness is somehow connected with the taste of cherries that make a wellbalance fruitful drink
