3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is very similar to cherry cough syrup. Color is clear ruby red, if it weren’t for the light pink head it would look like wine. The taste as a very cherry nose, with an almost apple cider finish. Not as good as the Peche.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose of sweet alcoholic cherry candy! Huge pink head. Great taste with HUGE up front tart. Mellows out around half way through, then picks up its sour habits right before the end. Some what complex but the sweet and sour are almost over the top. Very good though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle purchased from Armanetti’s, Mundelein, IL. Hazy red hued having small white diminishing head with spare lacing. Black cherry aroma. Full bodied that starts and finishes with tart sweet black cherry flavor with no discernable bitterness. The flavor reminds me of RC black cherry cola that I drank as a kid and a bit like cherry-flavored cough syrup. Though not my cup of tea, but it would make a drinkable aperitif or dessert beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
As I pop the cork from this beer a strong note of sticky, sweet cherry hits my nose. The beer pours with a thickish dirty pink colored head. The beer is a red color with a pinkish tinge to it. The aroma has nothing but a sweet cherry drop candy note. The cherry is rich smelling but is missing the cherry pit note that is in good Krieks.
The taste has an over the top sweetness to it that really just dominates this beer in both palate and flavor. There is a strong cherry note as well, and perhaps a bit of cherry skin complexity thrown in as well, but overall this does not even have the fruit character that the Lindemans Framboise has. Simplistic and straight forward, it is perhaps a bit easier to drink than the Framboise, but I do like cherries better than raspberries. There is also a bit of tartness in the finish here, but this wisp of a flavor is all that says that this might be something that is Lambic base.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very deep red to the point of garnet coloured. The taste is unmistakably cherry but not obscenely so. Has a nice aroma and lasting taste that I enjoyed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a somewhat cloudy garnet, with very minimal tan head, weird. Aroma is lots of yeast and cherries, quite nice actually. Taste is yeast and cherries as well, with a nice malt backbone to it. The cherries are not overdone, and do not seem artificial. Very juicy.
