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

tmoreau (2431) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Shared crockery-look, coated 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters, showing a fairly clear, coppery red color, with a finger’s width of soft white head foam, and light spots of lacing. The nose was expressive cherry that was on the artificial side, but by no means medicinal, as many fruit beers with this aroma tend to be, some syrupy sweetness, and a touch of tartness. The taste was similar, medium bodied, with lively, fizzy carbonation, and continued tartness into the finish. Not as part of a steady diet, but a nice, dessert-like change of pace to our tasting session.

minutemat (1656) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2014
330ml bottle from Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. Pours a deep red with similarly pink head. Taste is super sweet, tangy, sticky and tart getting a little sickly in places. Not as well-balanced as the likes of Kasteel Rouge.

jaghana (3926) - Strasbourg (France), FRANCE - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle 33cl, a red beer with huge pink head. Nose is on red fruit and strawberries cream. Aroma is very very sweet, barley sugar, strawberries and raspberries touch, creamy body, less drinkable, aspartame finish.

zach8270 (3476) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2014
(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 (719) - 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 (1889) - 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.

Tmoney99 (10681) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 13, 2014
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 (2167) - 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.

On tap at Taps in Petaluma. Pours a pinky red color with a bit of head. Mildly sweet cherry, though a little bitter harshness.
