Bottle: Small fluffy light pink creamy head on top of a clear ruby pink colored beer. Smell cherry, dust, cherry sweets. Taste cherries, sweets, red fruit, light candy sweet, light light hint of something sour. Cherry fruity aftertaste. Low to medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture.

25 cl bottle. Deep red color with medium pink head. It is sweet and a bit sour. Drinkable when it’s cold. Aroma has cherries and almonds in it. Pretty durable aftertaste. Reminds more lemonade than beer... Label is saying that it has 25% cherries in it, but it does not feel so...

Bottle at Dahlbergs. Helsingborg, March 2012.
Thanks to PeaceRich for sharing these. Aroma of artificial cherries, almost smells like Dr. Pepper. Very sweet. Light dusty body without any texture. Flavours of sweet cherries. Reminds me more of soda than beer.

Bright and clear pinkish purple, medium pink head, delicate lacing. Aroma of sweet and intense fruit. Taste is very sweet. Definitely a drink for teenagers and small children.

A little balance would have gone a long way with this beer. For how sweet this beer is, its still surprisingly drinkable, but a bit of tartness or sourness would’ve helped its drinability. Ruby red with a pink head. Tried in Maastricht in 2012.

Benzai (12187) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2012
25 cl bottle @ home. Slightly unclear ruby red color, small pink head. Smell pure sweetness mixed with cherries. Especially those warm cherries. Tastes the same: an incredible amount of cherries and sweetness. I guess it’s ok, but just not my thing. Decent carbonation, decent body for a 4%ABV beer.

Plovmand (7476) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle. Pours dark reddish with a pink fluffy head. The aroma is loads of cherry gum. The flavour is loads of sweet cherry and and distinct sour touch. Ok balance. Proofs that a fruit beer doesnt need to be all that sour to be quaffable.
