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

33 cL bottle@fonefan/Brugmansia’s Cnudde tasting. Pours dark red, clear and golden. Aroma is cherry sweet with notes of marzipan. Flavour is sweet cherry fruity with a dry note following. Marzipan sweet flavour before the finish. Ends quite dry. Slight artificial flavour yet not unpleasant.

Pours dark red with a light frothy head. Aroma of sweet cherries and yeast. Initially sweet taste moves slowly into a sour finish. Notes of chocolate and flowers. Nice balance of sweet and sour.

kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 29, 2008
Pours a light rad cherry with no head. Aroma is strong sour cherry, yeasty and a bit cheesy. Flavor is cherry that’s moderately sweet and fairly limited sour, some yeast and dried fruits. Finishes slightly astringent and a nice sour chery. Medium body, light carbonation.

SB (333) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2008
Pours ruby red with a nice foamy ruby head, that lingered all the way to the end. Aroma of oak and cherry. Flavor of cherries, no doubt with a hint of oak and chocolate. Nice lingering aftertaste of cherry/oak. Nice medium body. Not syrupy at all. Nice beer to drink on a rainy spring night. Smooth mouthfeel. Very nice beer

At Three cellars tasting. Life is like a bowl of cherries, and you know exactly what you are getting inside when you take a sip of this fruit beer. Cherry from the word go! Cherry in color, cherry in aroma and cherry in taste. I’ll admit I’m not a big fan of cherries but this beer may make me rethink that, it’s that solid. Somewhat tart but overall smooth, I really enjoyed!

Hugely sweet cherry aroma,some vanilla coming out,you can tell its going to be hugely cherry sweet tasting.like a Lindemanns, Wow sure enough,sweet as cherry wine,medium carbonation doesn’t have nearly rhe sour barreling taste that other fruit lambics have. this was a great brew to have after 3 pilsners. The sweetness really hits a different spot of the tongue and rejuvenates it. Women who hate beer would really love this. I refuse to dock this simply because its sweet. It is most excellently made

hotstuff (4284) - Indiana, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Draft at BadaBoomz in downtown Indianapolis, IN. Small pinkish head, no lacing and a burgunday-dark red hue. Nose was sweet, full of cherries, sour, and tart. Flavor was very sweet, a lot of cherries, sour, and tart. Tingly mouthfeel and medium in body. Quite true to style, but way too sweet and fruity tasting for my liking. Those who enjoy this beer style, will probably enjoy way more than I did.

750 ml green corked and caged bottle poured a clear garnet with a lasting pink head. Aromas of sour pie cherries, light vanilla and a hint of spice. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of sour pie cherries, pie crust and hints of vanilla and spice with a crisp lingering cherry finish.
