20110617 Home (25 cl bottle from brewery): The clear, ruby-red beer had a pink-red head. The aroma is sweet, cherries, almond, some sour and notes of wood and vanille. The taste is sweet (sticky), cherry, some sour (light dry) and almond. The finisch is fruity, sweet and sour.Drikable at low temperature?

Koelschtrinker (15589) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Erfrischender Kirschantrunk, das Bier ist zwar gesüßt, aber äußerst geschickt, eine leicht saure Note sorgt doch noch dafür, dass das Kriek nicht künstlich wirkt. Der Mittelteil ist ebenfalls kirschig und erfrischend, die säuerliche Note hingegen ist verschwunden, leider rutscht hier kein hintergründiges Aroma nach und eine leichte Wässrigkeit macht sich breit. Süßer werdender Nachgeschmack, etwas klebrig. Angenehm leichtes Lambic. Test vom 6.12.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,11,11,11,6,11 - 10,25

Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - APR 26, 2011
Bottle from Beer Planet. Pours clear red with a pink/red head. Aroma is mainly sweet cherries and marzipan with a acidic hint. When chilled the flavour is sweet with some tartness as well. It has notes of sweet cherries, marzipan, and lime. Its quite hop bitter in the end, compared to other lambics.

Eructoblaster (3605) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle - 250ml. Nice ruby body with an average pink foamy head. Aroma is dominated by cherry and carries malty hints. Cherry taste carries some hoppy notes and ends with a short sour finish.

draft@ZBF 2011: very sweet cherry juice, heavy on sweetness, with a lot of white sugar & a bit of artificial sweetener, enjoyable but a bit too much sugar, candy like

txspartan (1007) - Berchem, BELGIUM - MAR 5, 2011
Tastes like candy and has been ’enhanced’ to taste even more like candy. Far too sweet to be enjoyable.

Pinball (11790) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2011
bottle from beer planet, 3.5% acc. to bottle (looks like the picture) aroma of cocktail-cherries, kids "cherry" eraser rubber, faint almonds. sort of artificial but not decidedly bad, just pretty extreme. flavor ismuch better. cherry juice, fresh cherries, very faint sourness, that is more sour towards the end.

My wife scored this one, she really likes it. Well its a sour cherry beer, the aftertaste is a little chemical layover, but really it does taste just like real dark cherry. Its crisp, refreshing and pretty nice.
