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

Pours a deep ruby color, almost brown, topped with a white head with pink undertone. Pleasant fruity aroma, cherry, with quite some soury notes, cider-like. Taste is a nice combination of sweet and soury, with some yeasty notes in the finish. Nice.

Keg at friends of ham, Leeds. Deep red with a pink head. Flavours are all cherry and almond. Taste is sweet and a bit sour, very slight bitterness afterwards. Densely carbonated with a sticky medium body. Tasty stuff.

The aroma has malt, yeast, cherry, and what may be raspberry as well. As I sip, I get some honey notes as well. The taste is sweet, but not cloying. Very enjoyable beer to drink, if you like fruit beers.

BirraBirrae (21) - BARCELONA, SPAIN - FEB 11, 2015
Color precioso, rojo oscuro. Aromas de saúco que se anteponen a los de cereza que quedan muy escondidos. Sabor totalmente artificial a edulcorante que mata los sabores de fruta que en algún momento le hayan puesto a la cerveza. Deja la boca raspada, como una lija. Es posiblemente la peor cerveza que he tomado nunca, con diferencia. Me esperaba algo mejor viniendo de Huyghe...

Bottle to stem. Deep red with bare white head. A: rotting cherries, sugar, yeast. T: candied grapefruit and cherry. Yuck. Fuck.

MiP (13912) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle, 8%. Marzipan and red berry aroma. Clear deep red colour. Small light pink head. The flavour is very sweet, even sugary. The flavour is mostly raspberry, but the finish might be more of cherry. Without the fat oily cherry flavour, though.

Clear dark red, frothy offwhite head. Aroma has raspberries and cherries. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Sweet raspberry and sour cherries. Finish is lightly boozy and a little rough.

jbruner (2699) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Pours a deep brownish red from the bottle with thin ring of off-white head. Aroma of sweet cherry, hint of sour, but lots of sweet. Taste follows, sweet definitely a desert beer, light carbonation. Better than I thought it would be, honestly.

Bottle. Pours a amber-hued pink body with a small white head. Nose is almond essence, sweet cherries, mild sour lemony tones and hints of marzipan and sugar. Taste is sweet cherries, sugar, red berries, alcohol and hints of marzipan. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Not quite for me; I prefer the sweet fruit beers with less almond essence factor and/or more tartness.
