Sucrets... if you’ve had the cough drops, you know what this beer tastes like. To be honest I don’t mind the flavor, but not for a beer. It’s smooth, but the cough syrupy flavor overtakes this beer.

Red whine colour with pink head fast disapearing. I love the cherry aroma - not perfumed...very natural. Nice carbonoation with cherry taste. It is crazy this one hides 8% ABV! Not heavy at all! Very drinkable. Have 10 of these in an ice bucked next to a swimming pool would made me nuts!

The cheery aroma is dominant. Nice colour. The pinkish head just fades away immediately. Not my stile but a nice blend between the two drinks. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall too sweet.

A candied cheery aroma dominates from the first sniff while the garrnet hued pour with a short lived pinkish head, continues the cheery theme. Tastes like a Big Red on steroids. Sweet cheery and sour cheery flavors blend. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, similar to a Kriek but not as sour - more sweet.

Tmavší červená barva, lehce zakalená. Pěna načervenalá a nízká, ale držící. Ve vůni dominují višně. Pivo spíše středně, až méně plné. Říz nižší. Velmi sladké, v chuti opět dominují višně a mírná tříslovinová nakyslost, dojezd sušší. Dobré, ale celý večer bych to pít nedokýzal.

agent_persik (430) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 26, 2014
Dark red color, lightly rose head. Aroma and taste of cherry and spices. Medium body and average carbonation. I’m not a fan of fruit beer, but this one is quite enjoyable.

Awesome beer! Massive cherry aroma. Deep reddish colour. Distinct cherry flavour.

Bottle (330 ml). Deep red with a small reddish-beige head and little lacing. Aroma is completely dominated by sweet cherries with light alcohol and spices notes. Taste is sweet and the cherries, while still being there, are far less present than in the aroma. There’s also light spices and a touch of alcohol as well as hints of caramel. Medium body (light for the abv). Moderate carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Bland finish. The aroma is quite interesting, but the other features of the beers are artifical and boring. The Kasteel Donker characterics aren’t really present in that one (I don’t know what are the proportions of the blend). Not very tasty and not easily drinkable either.

I’m certain I’ve had this before, but I apparently never rated it. Jolly rancher cherry aroma. Dark ruby, thin pinkish tan head, good lace. Jolly rancher or airheads cherry flavor. Cripes that is sweet. Light body. Enjoyable, but not terribly beery, and perhaps a little over the top with the sweetness.

12oz bottle - pours deep red almost brown . Sweet cherry juice aroma . Nice light cherry flavor with a hint of vanilla. Desert beer but really nice . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
