1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 Another ’witbier’-based sweet fruit beer, when are these abominations finally going extinct? Frothy, almost rocky, lacing, off-pinkish head over a misty ruby beer with somewhat ochre hue... Strong, simple aroma of cherry candy (’Mon Chéri’), overpowering (much) more subtle hints of artificial lemon juice, caramel, wheat, bubblegum, soap, cake and a vague sulphuric hint (burning rubber) gaining strength as it warms up - thus making it even less pleasant. Very sweet, sugary onset of the same cherry candy and cherry ’jenever’ without the alcohol, slight sourish touch not unlike a soda pop, with medium carbonation and obviously thin mouthfeel. Some caramelly malt sweetness and sourish (wheat) grains lie underneath, but the sweet and sugary cherry effect dominates the entire palate. Finish, if any, consists of lingering cherry sugar sweetness, cloying a bit along with the ascorbic acid effect of lemonade; no hops are discernible. Sweet in a sugary way and sourish in a lemonade-like way, but mostly sweet, and very straightforward. I now vividly remember how I grew to hate this type of ’beers’. Please do not consider this a gateway to ’real’ beers: this particular substyle is a dead end, nothing comes to any good after you have started to like this. Drain pour!

Troebel rose rood bier zonder schuim. Smaak en geur is overduidelijk kers, echter wel chemisch. Iets te zoet voor mij.

Ziet er heel lekker uit en ruikt heel lekker, maar qua smaak een van de minste kriekenbieren dat ik al geprobeerd heb

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from the supermarket .
Pours fuzzy red-ish/pink-ish/white-ish . Just like a hoegaarden rosee ( shivers ) . foam is white and ok, but fades imidiatly .
Scent is candy ( poepegattekes ) and very intense
Taste is sugarsyrup, with sugar and sweeteners . Candy ( based on sugar ) , poepegattekes . this doesnt even taste like cherries ... The body is good though, as well as the carbonation . Its just such a chemical mess ... Drinkable thing . Certainly not respectable ( how chemical can a beer be ) but not an immidiate drainpour per-se . I just kinda fear for my health if I were to drink this whole glass ... Not sure if a body can take that much sugar ...

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2014 Bottle. Pours hazy red with a huge pink foamy head. Aroma of cherries and soap. Taste - even worse, very artificial flavors, very sweet with some cherries and almonds presence, detergents aftertaste. Pretty bad.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught @ BBW 2013.
Fruity aroma of cherries, sweet, candy.
Red pink beer with a pink head. Lacing.
Enough beer taste for a fruit beer. Cherries, but not my cup of tea. Too sweet.
Aftertaste is fruity yoghurt.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, fluffy creamy pink head, very hazy and a touch deep red colour, aroma of cherries and flowers, flavour of cherries and almond with a light bitterness, quite sweet but not cloying. Quite drinkable but not much of a beer.
