Draft. Poured a deep red ruby body with thin head. Aroma is cherries. Flavor is slightly sweet but very tart, cherries, a little bit of sourness to it.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2008
750ml -2007 - Aroma is real cherries, artificial cherry candy and some maltiness to hold it down. Pours deep red with a medium quickly fading pink head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is sweet and sour. Feels forced, like they added the "cherry juice" to completely remove and subtlety and nuance. Too much IMO. Went well with the dark chocolate I was eating.

Clear dark red with tiny short lasting pinkish head. Sweet aroma with notes of sweet cherries and marzipan. Sweet flavor with strong cherry notes. Ends sweet.

FatPhil (9507) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 6, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2010 330ml bottle (One Pint, Helsinki)
Rich red, fizzy head. Aroma of maraschino and black cherries. Taste matches that - black cherries all over. 1-dimensional, but it’s great to have something non-sweet as the fruity hook. Those cherries are dark and bitter, and very tasty. Where’s the 8%?
Rerate: Bottle (Hell Hunt, Tallinn) 7:4:7:4:15
Less 1-dimensional, cherries more integrated into a fullsome beer. Finish shows that this is no gimick, again, great balance and even poise. Bumped up the score on aroma, palate, and overall. I really am liking everything about every sip. Thanks Anna for buying the second and the third...

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 6, 2008
The Fonefan/Brugmansia Cnudde tasting. Courtesy of Fonefan/Brugmansia. It’s an incredibly nice, dark, red beer with a pink head and a nice aroma of cherries and marzipan. The flavour has sweetness, but also a nice berry acidity that balances the brew nicely. It has notes of cherries, marzipan, almonds and it’s a very nice kriek!

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 1, 2008
Pours dark red, like a dark cherry, pink head. Big cherry taste, dark and sweet, if you are looking for subtlety look the other way, this is rich and sweet. This kinda tastes just like cherry soda, good if you are looking for that, bad if you are looking for any wild yeast or earthy character.

DocLock (8002) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 31, 2008
750 ml corked caged bottle. Pours deep magenta with 1-finger of pink head. Nose is Jolly Ranchery cherry, earthy malt, some cobwebby yeast. Tastes somewhat sweet at first, but gets tarter as it warms up and the palate normalizes, with a natural tasting tart cherry flavor coupled with some earthy and yeasty notes. Solid.

Pours ruby red with good carbination. Sour cherries, sweet fruits, and very easy to drink. Not your average beer, but very tasty.
