BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2010
25.4 oz. bottle. To my nose, aroma was almost exclusively of cherries, with a little alcohol thrown in. Looked gorgeous in the glass, a fine red/brown color with a haziness that spoke of the tartness that awaited. Small pinkish head that disappeared almost as quickly as it formed. Taste was somewhat one dimensional (tart cherries of course); however, I did detect the distinct taste of fig. Dry on the palate. I took my time drinking the bottle so as to not overwhelm myself with the cherry taste. Overall, I liked it and would recommend it for splitting with another person after dinner.

adster (158) - HUNGARY - JUL 20, 2014
Sötétvörös színű, rózsaszín habkoronájú főzet, illata igazán magával ragadó, nem teljesen váratlanul intenzív meggy aroma árad belőle, mely természetesen uralja az ízvilágot is, amiben egyébként egy jó adag kandiscukor és egy különleges mandulás, marcipános karakter is felbukkan. Erőteljes a kezdés, a cukorszirupos jellemvonások már-már elharapózni látszanak, a meggy jótékony hatású savanykás jellege azonban remekül lecsendesíti az összhatást, így egy igazán kiegyenlített ízvilág körvonalazódik, melyben az alkohol egyébként határozott mértékű jelenléte sem válik súlyossá, remekül kisimulnak az ízek. Igazi nyári csemege ez is.

0,33L bottle, BB 04.2016. Pours dark red with pink head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is cherries, sweet and sour. Taste is sweet, cherries, caramel, and malt. Finish is cherries with hint of bitterness and alcohol. Overall: very nice brew, goes down really well.

Bottle, 330 ml at Tituš, Zagreb. Pours dark red with pinkish head. Cherry aroma. Sweet and sour cherry flavor. Seems a bit artificial.

jmcgavin12 (473) - Madison, USA - JUL 10, 2014
A medium dark, red pour with a frothy lacing head. Aroma is dominated with cherries, hints of alcohol, and a slight malt backbone. Taste is very cherry and sweet with an oily slightly boozy finish. Cherry sweetness can be a bit overpowering at points but still delicious

sdg (23) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Dark, ruby color; quickly dissipating, minimal head - Very intensive cherry aroma, reminds of italian amarena cherries. Hints of other red fruits - despite sweetness very balanced taste - soft carbonation, medium body, rather slick texture - short finish, cherry.

July 8, 2014 - on tap at Benelux. Brownish red pour with nice head that lasted. Aroma and taste were tart cherry, sweet sugar and touch of cinnamon. Smooth and easy to drink.

Eingelegte Kirschen ind er Nase, süßlich, etwas eindimensional, aber intensiv. Tolle dunkelrote Farbe, Traubensaft. Geschmack süßlich, stark nach Kirschen, leicht säuerlich, alkoholisch am Abgang mit leichter Bitterkeit. Anständige Balance und gut trinkbar.
