yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 29, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden red with a pink head. Dense almond cherry dry aroma. Citric and sweet flavoured and quite artificial. Sweet and sulphorish finish. Simple and somewhat artificial.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2004
A red beer with a small collapsing pink head. The aroma is sweet with notes of cherries. The flavor is also sweet with strong flavors of cherries, but only hints of sourness, before a slightly dry finish sets in.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2007
(Bottle 25 cl) Clear, reddish amber colour with a creamy, pink head leaving laces. The initial tartness in the aroma is accompanied by cherries and marzipan. Light body with sweet cherry notes and a fairly distinct tartness. Comes with both artificial sweeteners and flavourings but manages to present itself as a pretty decent fruit lambic. 260107

oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 7, 2008
Bottled (3.2%). Clear red colour with pink fluffy head. Some lacing. Aroma is cherry, some sugar and also mild nuttyness. Flavour is very sweet cherry. Also some quite sour cherries in it lurking. Quite nice, and very refreshing.

omhper (19308) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2005
Bottled. Deep red, pink head. Balsamic sweet cherry aroma. Very sweet with sticky mouthfeel and concentrated juicy cherry flavour. Light bodied without a trace of acidity. I like the cherry flavour, but hate the excessive sweetness.

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2006
Bottle, 3.2%. Clear dark red colour, big, stable pink head. Very sweet cherry aroma. Very sweet cherry flavour, a little acidic. Clearly balanced towards sweetness.

harrisoni (13564) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2006
375ml bottle from Sainsbury. Blood red with pink head. Even before I take a taste of this, I know that this is going to be too sweet for me, and it is. Sweet cherries dominate. Some sourness on finish, but the rest is just too much. Like drinking cherry syrup.
