Scopey (6136) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2013
Consumed at Breakfast time in a hotel in Brussels... It pours clear red with a thick light pink head. The nose is sweet cherry, artificial notes, sugar and Cherry Tunes. The taste is sweet cherry...... faint tanginess, Cherry Drops, cherryade, sugar and light metallic notes. Light-medium body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. A one-dimensional sweet cherry beer, but definitely not the worst out there!

brokensail (10527) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Bright red pour with a pink head. Sweet cherry candies on the nose. Very sweet and sugary, a hint of cough syrup, and Ludens cough drops. Tastes like cherry Lifesavers with a hint of sourness. Candy sweetness, mild cough syrup, and tons of sugar.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUN 19, 2012
From the bottle. Deep cherry red, reddish, foamy head, cherries dominate the taste and smell, sweetness and a touch of sourness/bitterness. Not bad, not especially great. My wife loved it, me less so.

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2012
On tap @ local pub Antwerpen. This is a dark pink one with a bright pink head. It smells as sweet as it looks; sugar syrup blended with almond extract and artificial cherries added some sour herbal additions. It has a soft carbonation level and a really sticky texture in the mouth. Flavors is just as sweet as expected. Lots of sugar added some cherries and almonds. There is also a faint sourness in the background, but it does not balance the sweetens in any way. More like an infection sourness really. Guess it’s drinkable, but not very good. 29.05.2012

SaintMatty (5078) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2012
Bottle - Red with a pinkish white head. Cherries and almonds in the aroma. Sweet taste with cherries dominating, followed by a slightly bitter and fruity finish. Refreshing, but not to be taken too seriously.
