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

jawlo (195) - Katowice, POLAND - OCT 5, 2015
Aromat: intensywna wiśnia, trochę karmel i rodzynki. Barwa: czerwona, piana średnia. Smak: sporo słodyczy, głównie wiśnie, może trochę rodzynki w tle, goryczka zbyt niska jak na słodycz. Tekstura: średnio pełne, wysycenie niskie. Ogólne wrażnie: zbyt jedno wymiarowe - zbyt wiele wiśni, za słodkie, brak kontry goryczkowej, alkohol ładnie ukryty. Dla fanów słodkich piw smakowych.

Very disappointing. A very artificial flavour with a tangy sour aftertaste. Low carbonation. Served at room temperature which may be some of the problem.

Countbeer (5503) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 8, 2015
Bottled as La Bouffonne Rouge: Tumbler: Dark ruby with a beige head. Aromas of red fruit, artificial red fruit... Flavour is red fruit with bitters, malts, more artificial red fruit... Aftertaste is red fruit with a glow and some bitters... Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Fucking hell, sweet unbalanced crap! Obviously I don’t like it!

Strykzone (5816) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Sampled at ESBLS. Red in color. Three words: Ludens Cough Drops. That was the taste to me. I used to eat those as candy and not for a cough. No alcohol tasted.

Pours a deep red, almost opaque with a thin pinkish head. Very nice aroma of sour cherries. This is the best of the beers that I sampled tonight. The balance of sweet and sour and texture and flavor was perfect. Nice lingering flavor with no harsh aftertaste or alcohol burn. I enjoyed this a lot and so did the others with me. Definitely on my shopping list next time I go looking.
