Why are these fruit beers always so sweet? It’s like drinking lemonade. Beh.

HammerTroll (410) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 22, 2014
Extremely cloudy, dark red color, pinky head. Cherry aroma. Weird sourness, not not so pleasant. Medium body, creamy, lively carbonation. Long fruity sour finish.

The beer taste is different, kind of lambic but very far from it. Dark red color, foam disappears easily. It is an unique selection. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Really kind of gross, soapy lather kind of mouthfeel, cherry sour body but overly saccharine sweet.

DocJitsu (902) - Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a hazy plum color with a short, perpetual purplish-white thin foam. Smashed berry nose. Thick, smooth, yet juicy texture. Blackberry, cherry, and raspberry flavors. Perfectly balanced sweetness against the tartness. Very natural berry flavors.

hackobock (1300) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2014
On tap at Deliruim. Pours dark red with a pinkish head. Light aroma of cherries, oak, almond and hay. Taste us medium sweet, light tart. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, soft carbonation.

Finn (4134) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
Flaske 330ml fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Dyprød med et middels høyt lyserødt skum. Skummet daler raskt og etterlater litt lacing. God kirsebæraroma. Smaken er godt modne kirsebær. Så vidt litt syrlig i avslutningen. Blir ensformig.

Pours a dark red body with a pink thin head. Strong funky aroma and a nice fresh taste of cherries and fruit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daknole (9044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Deep red color, pink head. Very sweet. Cherries and berries. Ludens cough drops. Lots of the Belgian goodness is lost. Flavor is ok but the sweetness it a bit much.

Alengrin (1023) - BELGIUM - AUG 11, 2014
Heavy top-fermented kriek since 2010, in a new trend of heavy sweet krieks, popular in especially Wallonia and northern France. Light pink, loose, thin but stable head, colour a darkish bright red. Sweet aroma, cherries, red apple, cider but also an artificial lemonade-like quality, raspberry jam and grenadine, lemon juice, bread, hay, sweet honey. Explicitly sweet taste, apply and sugary, grenadine-like, bit syrupy, on a soft caramel malt base, slight grassy hoppiness in the finish, alcohol well-hidden, bit cloying. Not even that bad in its specific style, a style I will never learn to appreciate to the fullest, I’m afraid.

Ik drink graag fruitbieren af en toe, maar dit was niet echt mijn smaak, een tegenvaller
