UPDATED: AUG 18, 2005 This is probably my favorite beer, this one or the Frambroise. Itís an excellent after dinner or dessert beer. I could drink this every day. It smells fruity, it tastes a little sweet, but thatís why you wouldnít want to drink it with a meal. Itís a nice color. Itís just an all around excellent beer.

Bottle. Rich purple-red color with a big pink head. Sour cherry aroma with yeast. Sour cherry flavor - sweet, tart, refreshing. Better than the Framboise.

Bottle. Oh man, the sweetness. The sweet flavor overwhelms anything else in this beer, rather cloying. The aroma is mostly of cherries, little room for yeastyness or tartness. Unfortunately I drank this without a meal, which is silly. The appearance is wonderfuly, a rich cherry red with great head retention. Iíd use this for a palate cleanser between courses or with a rich chocolate desert. Not my favorite style, but interesting nonetheless.

Palidor19 (3076) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2005
Like drinking a cherry candy. Love the way it looks too, fruit punch red. First siop is very tart, fasdes quick after second. Malty and refreshing, like punch with sorbet in it.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2005
UPDATED: APR 20, 2006 Pours a nice cherry red with a pink frothy head. Aroma is wonderfully tart, and the flavour is sweet and prickly. Most delicious and right up my alley.

Cherry soda! This beer was a reddish color with a huge smell of cherries. So hugely yummy!

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2005
Pours a deephazy cherry red with a big frothy pink head. Lots of persistent lace. Smells of sour cherries and yeasty. Hints of the wheat malt. Taste is very sweet. Some tartness from the cherries but mostly itís cherry sweetness. Some sour yeastiness. Sticky sweet mouth. I prefer Lindemans Framboise instead of this, more balanced and understated sweetness. But this is a pretty good dessert/after-dinner beer. Wife loves it by the way...

madsberg (10805) - SÝborg, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2005
Bottled: Clear red coloured. On top a fantastic white head with a distinct red gleam. Distinct cherry aroma with a marzipan like sweetness. There is an apple undertone. Flavour is dry and light sour on top of the fruitsweetness. A bit sweet lambic, but well balanced. Dry and refreshing fruity end. Has good lasting. A bit too sweet for my likings, but still a very good beer.
