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 (3652) - 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 (6554) - 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.

Countbeer (5953) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2012
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.

no2Pencil (58) - ESTONIA - MAR 16, 2012
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...

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2012
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.

Travlr (20242) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 2, 2012
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.

ads135 (4011) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 19, 2012
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 (12571) - 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.

Kavu (3809) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 6, 2012
Pours deep red with a low pink head. Aroma is cherries. Flavor is sour cherry with some malts. Quite decent.
