UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Bottle. The aroma (should say WOW) was overwhelming with the scent of cherries, but did have mild notes of a light bread malt and a nice sweet doughy yeast. It tasted sweet and malty with a very strong note of cherries from the start to finish with a light sourness appearing at the end. The flavor lingered on the taste buds for a nice long while allowing full enjoyment of the fruity nectar. Mouthfeel was medium in body and a little watery yet nice and creamy in texture with the carbonation being somewhere between medium to moderate. Overall an extremely tasty Fruit Ale, although it is more like a Lambic than an ale. This is the perfect beer to enjoy at the end of the day with a nice creamy dessert.

Dard red beer with no head, fizzy in the glass. Uber black cherry on the nose. Massive black cherry taste, black cherry, black cherry, black cherry!

Zlotta (316) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 30, 2015
0,33 l bottle from EDEKA Mohr, bottled in May 2014 (one year old). Clear, deep red with a medium large, fluffy, rather quickly diminishing, white head with a brownish touch. Very sweet, fruity aroma dominated by (artificial) cherry juice and accompanied by hints of almond and oak. Sweetish-sourish, fruity taste again with lots of cherry juice but also with some oak, resulting in a sourish, tart and slightly alcoholic finish that balances the sweetness. Medium body, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Interesting but not totally convincing. Very sweet and rather artificial, but with a nice tart finish making it quite drinkable. Okay.

Derek881 (1079) - Bucharest, ROMANIA - JUL 25, 2015
Poured from a 0.33L bottle bought in Romania into a short glass to drink. The beer a deep, dark ruby color with a lot of initial bubbles and a small foamy off-white head that almost instantly disappeared, with practically no cling or lacing. The aroma featured a strong presence of cherries along with some other fruity and floral tones, and a bit of licorice and some malt. It had a strong cherry and fruity taste with a subtle sweetness, but also had a stronger sour fruit effect with a slight alcohol presence and a bit of grainy taste. The beer had a wet and watery mouthfeel with low to average carbonation and a very dry finish and after taste, which was a bit thin in the end. Interesting beer, different, but enjoyable.

Bier met kersensmaak. Enorm veel aroma en ruikt lekker zoet maar dat is ook meteen het nadeel. In mijn ogen smaakt hij te zoet en zelfs een beetje zuur.

MarkoNm (1510) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 1, 2015
Pours a clear amber/red color, topped with a small off-white head. Aroma is nice and fruity, cherry-like, but with some yeasty notes in the back. Taste is what you would expect - sweet and fruity start, followed by some cherry sourness in the finish. A bit stronger, but still managable. Decent.

Nee, deze vind ik absoluut niet lekker. Kunstmatige kersensmaak en -geur te dominant aanwezig.
