2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled) Very nice, deep, clear red color with a small, fading, pink head. Strong, a bit artificial and very sweet aroma of cherries. Extremely sugary-sweet cherry flavor with no sourness at all. Light to medium-bodied, very sugary palate. A straightforward, ultra-sweet dessert kriek for teenage girlsí taste. Lambic fans steer clear from this one.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very sweet, sugary, syrupy cherry aroma. Almost opaque red wine like colour with a generous pink head that recedes slowly with excellent lacing. Sugary, sweet, fruit syrup-like concentrated flavour is lightly medicinal and has some tea-like tannins that are more apparent in the finish. Light body with very aggressive, prickly carbonation and a very sticky texture. I canít say this is bad, but I equally cannot say Iíd like another glass. Sampled at Mondial de la BiŤre 2005.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear pink color, with a medium pink head. Smells like cherry, cherry, oh and cherry. Sweet and slightly sour flavor of cherry. Sticky palate. When i ordered this at the Beerpassion Festival in Antwerp, the brewer said to me: "Quite nice beer for your girlfriend". And so it is...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught sample from the McAusland booth at the Mondial. Dark purplish red with a lasting touch of pink foam and some lacing, nearly opaque....sweet, simple fruity nose is pleasant enough if more like sweetened juice than beer...very, very sugary body with barely a hint of tartness, much like cough syrup without the alcohol burn...reminiscent of Lindemans, but even more unbalanced. Candy in a glass; I donít know that I could drink more than four ounces of this, and why would I want to?

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2005 Bottle: Poured a bright pink color liquid with a huge bubbly head with very little retention. Aroma is totally dominated by the cherry syrup and nothing else can be distinguished. Taste is also dominated by the cherry syrup that I didnít particularly enjoyed since it was way too sweet for my liking. I wasnít expecting something earth shattering but I wasnít expecting something similar to this.

Bottle. Dark red beer with a light head. The aroma is deeply sweet cherries and the flavour is very sweet cherries. Overall a nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep, clear ruby into a tumbler. Bright pink head with medium retention recedes with scant spiders to hug rim. Cherry bomb aromas. Musty, sweet candied cherries turning to a cherry biscuit finish. Sweet, but well made.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
On draught at Mondial, June 2005. Good pink head, well-retained with lacing, atop a cherry-juice red body, quite hazy. Aroma of cherry ludens (cough drop/candies) with light raspberries. Notes of tartness, some light powdery yeast and sugar. Cherry licorice, perhaps. Flavor is all out chewy sweet-tarts. Some very light souring on the end. So much candy itís hard to believe. Body is all sugar, not watery, of course, but there is little, or probably no beer here. Low carbonation, slightly powdery mouthfeel. Full sugared body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet dark cherry, like a Hostess Fruit Pie or cherry Lifesaver type sweetness. Blood red clear with thin pink lacing head. Medium watery body with high carbonation. Starts with nice cherry tartness, like homemade sour cherry pie. Induces a little saliva. Medium acidity, but not harsh. Sweet cherry finish, just a bit of hops. Pleasant sweet cherry after. Not very deep, more like a good tart cherry soda, but better than some other fruit beers or cherry lambics Iíve tried.

Excellent beer, I do not know whay is so underrated, but the taste is very sweet, almost like eating the cherries.
