Dark pink colour, pinky head. Heavy sweet cherry aroma. in the beginning a smouth and soft cherry taste, then a heavy cherry flavor to end with a long bitter sweet finish, little bit sticky as well. Low alcohol, little bit to sweet limonade-like.

Big dark parfait pink head on a cloudy dark strawberry liquid. Aroma all cherry reminiscent of cherry pie filling. Flavour is very sweet and cherry although there is a sour tint to the finish. If a soda company made cherry-pie this would be it. I think they hit the mark that they were aiming for but this is not a beer for frequent repetition.

Sweet cherry smell, not much else in the aroma. Almost no head. Bubbly. Slightly cloudy. Reddish brown colour. Tastes more like a cherry cola, or a cooler, than a beer. Sweet and syrupy. Tastes ok but give it to the kids, I'll take a beer.

This brewery has nearly 80 dierent beers listed here. A bit of a shotgun approach in trying to brew somthing for everyone or an attitude that is a bit like a small child’s attention span. Also the integrity of the process needs to be challenged as this one merely tastes like a poorly brewed beer with the addtion of some cheery cordial. Generally poorwith a cloying aftertaste that does not offer any real enjoyment. Faux lambics are all a bit of a bore.

On draught at Delirium Café, Göteborg.
Cherry red colour, with a light pink-ish head. Dewy cherry nose, very fresh feel to it. Good mouthfeel. Fresh cherry flavour, still with artificial hints. Beer?

Predictable ruby red liquid, with a small head that disappeared faster than you could say "quick, turn on the cricket". Also predictable maraschino cherry aroma, with a slightly milky tilt. The flavour is sour, thanks to the cherries, with also some cloying sweetness. The palate is pretty light, and the aftertaste does not last very long at all. Drunk as a digestif after a hearty meal, it seemed to fit it’s place well.

Beautiful clear cherry red, good red head. Sourish and sweet cherry nose. Candy-like cherry flavor, some sourness in the finish. Otherwise overwhelming essance cherry flavors.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich rose color, darker than a rose wine anyway. Pinkish head that dissapears quickly, leaving behind some lace. The smell is cherry, dew, some wet and dank, and glue - all of which in a positive sense. The taste is sweet but not overpoweringly so. Some honey, wheat, cherry, and some balancing sourness. The palate also does well to counteract the sweetness.

Ruby red color and pink head. Sweet aroma of Morello cherries and sweet caramel. Sweetness and again sweetness, with some artificial fruitness. Children’s syrup.

Drinkable but simple fruit beer that lacks the complexity of a good kriek. Pours a cloudy cherry colour with a moderate white head. The nose is sour-sweet with strong glace cherry notes. Light, quenching palate, fine for the style. Sweet-sour cherries dominate the flavour. Way too sweet for my taste. (Bottle)
