Bottle shared by NickTheElder. Looks too pretty to drink. Pours a clear crimson color with a pink film. Wow, black cherry pie filling sums this beer up perfectly. Its abundant in both flavor and aroma. Super thick, syrupy, and sweet. A great dessert beer to sip on, and it would probably be great with a scoop of ice cream. Doesn’t really taste anything like beer, but it’s still damn tasty.

Aroma is totally cherry cough medicine. Not for me. Taste is sweet burnt cherry cough medicine. I did not enjoy this.

Bottle from NicktheElder. Pretty beer, dark ruby red with a pink head. Cherry cough syrup aroma, like the 44D. Sweet cherry flavor, like black cherry kool-aid. Very tasty.

Gyönyörű bíborvörös színű ital,rózsaszínű habbal.Illata olyan mint a nagymama rumos meggy befőtjének.Íze is túláradóan meggyes,édes,alkoholos,de a enyhén érezni benne a komlót is.Utóíze édes,aszalt gyümölcsös.Az alkohol tartalom kellemesen melegít.Szép sűrű,testes itóka.Egy üveggel egy szelet Feketeerdő torta mellé vagy egy darab minőségi fekete csokoládé mellé.Jólesik mellé egy tömet édes,burley keverék pipadohány is.Az eddigi legjobb gyümölcsös sör,amit ittam!

Thin pink head, sparkling, cherry bomb nose. Sweet and crisp, nice tart acidity balances this beer out from just beer fruity. Solid Belgian yeasty finish.

Sampled at Pizza Port Belgian Beer Party and liked it. Was able to pick up a couple bottles at the Pizza Port bottle shop right after the event. Pours a deep and almost opaque red. Thin layer of pinkish head which quickly disappears. Love the aroma -- rich mature cherry smell. Dark cherries dominate the flavor which is predominately sweet but there is a nice tartness as well. There is also a hint of alcohol, but the 8% is generally well disguised. Finishes sweet and slightly dry, like champagne. Not something to drink so regularly, but surprisingly good. A good one to try to get your girlfriend turned on to beer!

Drake (11499) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 30, 2009
11.2 ounce bottle from In Vino Veritas in Keswick, VA. Pours a dark, clear ruby color with a thin fizzy head. Poor retention and lacing. Aroma is sweet cherries, candylike and reminding me of Luden’s cough drops. Taste is tart, sweet cherries along with some other berries. Medium bodied. Fairly one dimensional and more like a soda than a beer.

Overpowering sweet. Poured ruby red with a pink head. Aroma and flavor of nothing but cherries.

Jsawyer (297) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Pours dark earthy maroon-garnet with a rose colored head. Redolent of white grapes, apple, cherry cola, sweet-sour vinegar, and slightly honeyish. Flavor is sweet cherry with raspberry undertones, cola, sharp woodyness, apple cider, slightly sour dry tartness, woody and citric finish. Overall reminiscent of cherry cola mixed with wine. A good dinner beer although I got the feeling this was a little more sweetened than a traditional kriek.

Cherry cola reddish color. Smells like fresh cherry jam that was just opened. Had this at the Belgium Beer Party down at Pizza Port Carlsbad. Very tasty sweet beer with champagne like carbonation. Kind of reminds me of cherry 7-up that has been fermented and carbonated. Definitely a sipper beer to have after a good dinner.
