NosirIwont (2006) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. 8.0%. Best before 14.11.15. Pours a clear, deep and dark red/brown with a diminishing tan head. Distinct but mellow cherry aroma, with a malt note in the background. Sweet cherry flavour with a light malt note in the background. Finish is a tart ch/berry bitterness, with dark fruits and a bit of alcohol. Overall good; all about the cherries, but is well-balanced and doesn’t become cloying. Also, the cherries doesn’t have that artificial feel as it often found in cherry beers. 23.12.14.

puboflyons (2228) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 23, 2014
From the 330 ml. bottle dated 2013/10/09. Attractive mahogany-red pour with a quick lasting off-white head. Aroma exudes cherry and fruit for the most part but it also brings out a lovely toasted malt note. Unlike other beers of this style that smell too fruity. This one still has a "beer" element. The body is medium. The taste is alive with cherry flavors but at the same time I still get that distant Belgian biscuit malt character. 8%? You’d hardly know it. Booze is buried. If all fruit beers could be like this one I would drink many more fruit beers.

MADpalace (211) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2014
Ruby red color with vast disappearing thin chemical Cherry color head. Smell of Amarena cherries, very attractieve but alsof a bit unreal. Taste of an acid ?kriek? style beer. Geuze/lambic style beer bitterness nut with soms warm beer flavor in the back.

rayaron (357) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle sample. Clear deep red with small pinkish head. Strong aroma of cherry with some maltiness. Intense cherry flavor, very sweet with light sourness, very alcoholic. Lively carbonation, medium-bodied.

Kauge (358) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle. Dark ruby. Head light greyish beige. Nose fresh cherry yoghurt, not much else but a note of malts in the background. Taste is somewhat subtler and darker with some roastiness and moderate bitterness, but still very cherry-dominated, with a hint of alcohol. Body medium, carbonation average, finish somewhat dry. Not a fan of cherry beers, can’t really enjoy it much. But not bad.

Excalibur123 (190) - Soria, SPAIN - DEC 19, 2014
Vierte rojo oscuro con media corona de espuma perdurando una fina capa en la copa; en nariz aromas a cerezas, jarabe y piruleta. En boca entrada media y refrescante con cierta acidez y notas dulces; cuerpo ligero y carbónico moderado; pos gusto largo y fresco pero con final bastante artificial como a jarabe; cerveza fácil de beber pero no apta para todos los gustos.

Travlr (13411) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle. Clear reddish maroon color, off white head. Huge black cherry aroma. More cherries in the flavor with a bit of brownies, not overly sweet. Decent.

degbert (1200) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark garnet with a light, fine-grained, pink-cream-tan head. Nose is cherry liqueur, caraway rye bread, smoke, and malt. Big burst of cherry and booziness up front, followed by a longer, bitter, roastier, darker tone in the middle; the cherry carries through it, but that bitterness keeps it from being one-dimensional and it stays warm without being overly hot. There’s also skin and tannic elements to it that manage to keep it off the slippery slope of candied over-sweetness. The finish is long, aromatic, and cherry-liqueur-filled chocolate-like. Really, really pleasant.

Jow (2264) - New York, USA - NOV 30, 2014
Draft at City Beer Hall. Flat ruby pour with a nose of cherry cough syrup. Tastes mostly of robitussin, cherry, sage, wood, and marzipan. Could use a bitterness kick to liven it up. Unusual brew.
