Draught at Friends of Ham. I like almost all fruit beers but this one was sickening. It was like drinking kool aid filled with excess sugar and spiked with alcohol. It was refreshing but Would have happily traded this for my husband’s Kernel.

A strong beer that SHOULD be very nice, but the strange mixture of strong tasting ingredients all combine to fight, rather than blend, into a cocophany of badly matched tastes. Dissapointing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALIBALI (777) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2016
Duftet nach Waschmittel und Beeren. Auch die beim Trunk heftig einsetzende sirupartige Süße, läßt sich hier schon gut erschnuppern. Das Mundgefühl ist belgientypisch, schäumend samtig und fast schon ein bisschen klebrig. Unter dem Strich viel zu dominant zuckersüß. Probierschluck von Baby in Bamberg. Aus der Flasche.

abirres (69) - Salamanca, SPAIN - OCT 4, 2016
Cobriza intensa de tonalidad granate y reflejos rubíes, velada. Espuma cremosa color fresa, de retención media-alta y cierto encaje belga. En nariz, dulzona con notas a cereza y guindas, ligeramente floral y algo licorosa. Sabor a frutos rojos (cerezas), gusto agridulce con un final ligeramente amargo, alcohol muy bien integrado, suave y algo seca. De cuerpo y carbónico medio.

kaserov (215) - Oviedo, SPAIN - SEP 21, 2016
Color rojo oscuro, prácticamente granate, con capa de espuma rosa claro de un dedo de grosor (no mucha retención). No se percibe carbonatación. El aroma es cereza (y alcohol cuando atempera). El sabor es dulzón, dominado por la cereza, con final alcohólico notable. No hay acidez. Y sí, funciona bien como postre alcohólico. Pero no mucho más.

UXO (1522) - CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Appearance: clear ruby with one fat finger of loose light purple head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: red berries, tart cherry, candi sugar. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, mild tart, light bitter. (5/10) Medium-light body, lively carbonation, off-dry tart finish. (3/5) Sweet - really sweet. To the point where the cherry starts to achieve the dreaded cough syrup character, and it’s hard to tell whether it’s fake or not. I swear, it looked and tasted better on tap at Delirium Cafe… or maybe that was just the whole ambiance? Definitely not an authentic kriek, by a long shot, but OK for what it is. (12/20)

Ysok02 (1037) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2016
Robe rubis, mousse abondante et crémeuse. Nez assez chimique...qui rappelle les antibiotiques que l’on nous forçait ŕ prendre quand on était petit...évolue vers la cerise, et un coté balsamiqe. En bouche le coté antibiotique revient, l’amertume domine et l’ensemble est plutôt déplaisant. Pas du tout mon style.
