Bottle from 2 be. Pours dark murky red with a pink tinged head. Aroma of cherries and other red berries. Near med body. Flavor has lots of cherry and berry. There’s a hint towards sour, but hardly any. It’s fairly good berry all the way to the finish. Certainly not dry, but there’s a little berry seed astringency. Certainly different and interesting.

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.

Bottiglia da 33, di un bel colore rosso scuro con un piccolo cappello di schiuma color rosa, all’odore risalta subito la ciliegia, sapore molto dolce con una nota alcolica ben presente

Red-Amber pour with a white head. Cherry aroma but not a great deal of fruit in the flavour.

330ml bottle bought at Belgian Beer Internatioal in Tsuen Wan..

Translucent deep ruby red colour with traces of yeast sediments; Three-quarter finger head and off rose pink foam which fades in 40 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing and minimal carbonation; Fragrant, sweet and tart aroma of cherry, with cherry juice, light perfume, light malt, wheaty tartness, very light yoghurt, sugar, light alcohol, yeast and faint grass; Medium sweet taste of malt, with ripe dark cherry, strong cherry liquor, cherry juice, sugar, light yeast, sharp bitter hops and grass; Medium body. Slick palate; Mouth feel is dominated by a thick body with cherry liquor and nice ripe dark cherry; Very strong cherry liquor indeed. Unlike Kasteel Rouge, this one doesn’t have much yoghurty lambic or winey taste to boost. Also very hoppy for a wheaty fruit beer. Interesting… Hoppiness is faint grass nose and sharp, moderate grassy hops taste; Bitterness is light but Pils-like, quite expressive for a long, grassy, low astringent finish; Slightly dry after taste. Sweet boozy and hoppy to mouth.

Comments: For a cherry liquor-like fruit beer, this one is inferior than the accomplished Kasteel Rouge. The liquor taste is very standoff-ish and doesn’t quite blend into the wheaty beer base; Luckily the strong hoppiness was able to counter its booziness. Quite decent, but it can do better than being a liquor bomb.

Dark red color, with a pink persistent foam. Sour fruits like cherries and toasted almonds. The taste is full of cherries and red fruits.

Butelka 0.33 L.
Wygląd: Rubinowo-miedziane, mętne. Piana jasnoróżowa, drobna, średnioobfita z dobrym lacingiem.
Aromat: Sporo czerwonych owoców: maliny - jak syrop malinowy, wiśnie, jeżyny. W tle wyczuwalne aromaty piwa, drożdże belgijskie i odrobina jasnych słodów. Całość sprawia wrażenie lekko sztucznego, jak zagęszczany syrop.
Smak: Kwaśne wiśnie, posmak borówek, lekko cierpki. Na finiszu pojawia się goryczka, jakby pestki wiśni z minimalnym alkoholem. Również lekko sztuczne.
Odczucie: Nasycenie CO2 wysokie, faktura dziwna bo lekko ściągająca, sucha, taninowa - chyba od owoców.
Całość: Mocno owocowe, lekko za słodkie ale też z kwaskowatością i lekką goryczką. Niestety wiśnie w tym piwie zdają się być sztuczne. Wolę zwykłe delirium tremens ale warto raz spróbować.
