(Bottle @ Delerium cafe, Brussels, Belgium): Pours a cherry red color, smallish whitish red-pink head. Tart cherry aroma. Syrupy cherry taste, sweet. Very tart cherry taste. Almost like a cough drop. Good sweet desert drink.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a ridiculous shade of red. Candy red with a whiff of maraschino cherries. Very sweet and pretty tart, but there is no beer in here. This tastes like cherry pop (good cherry pop, mind you, but still cherry pop). Definitely not the traditional bitter beer with sour cherries I was expecting.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, Dovetail, Clerkenwell, London. Continuing my mini one-man pubcrawl, I decided to go for some new Belgians. Very glace cherry, sweet aroma about this one. Amazing red deep colour, thin pink head. Nose and mouth remind me of sweets (cherry drops). Flavour is sweet cherry, but easy drinking, wheaty. Palate is slightly sour, sweet. Little bit too gassy. Quite nice, if not a little bit straightforward.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 mL bottle from Lubiere. App.: INTENSE red colour with a pinkish, foamy head. Aroma: lots of cherry, almost medicinal, like a cherry Halls. A little bit of malty beer tries to come through.... Palate: fairly low carbonation, med. body. Flav.: wow, does that cherry cough medicine come through! A decent balance of sweet and tart, but not the style for me. Too much like a cooler!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
Overpowering sweet cherries in the nose. Opaque red body is topped by a decent pink head that recedes to a lasting cover and sticks to the sides of the glass. Very sweet flavour is like a cherry syrup. Light tartness way at the end of the aftertaste. Medium body with silky smooth texture and soft bubbled effervescence that is very enjoyable. It’s too bad these are so overpoweringly sweet as they are obviously otherwise well-made. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BB Dec-07, Bièropholie, Aug-06).

as said before favourite of the floris but still i think tooo sweet, when poured out of the bottle it is a wonderful presentation of colour, and the nose is amazing as well.

330 ml. Ok, it’s not a lambic and it doesn’t call itself a lambic so not fair to judge it as more than a cherry beer. In that sense it is a pretty good beer, not great but good. It pours an intense red color with a frothy pink head that fades quickly. Deep, almost sharp lactic-berry nose with a sour candy-like intensity. Cherry flavour up front but fades very fast, clearly no real fruit in here to add depth to flavour. Ends on sweet side with a wee bit of a tingly lingering effervescence. Kinda thin. Has some sourness but could do with more. Made with juice so lacking the pits and skins that would give a refreshing tanic acidity. If initial inviting flavour persisted the beer would be much better. Goes down quickly because of simple profile and very low alcohol. A good starter beer for the kids.

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy ruby body with a small white head. Aroma of Dots candies or Gummi Bears. Flavor of black cherries and sugar. Quite refreshing after a humid day in Beijing.
