Marduk (3206) - Tallinn, - FEB 2, 2013
375ml bottle. Hazy deep deep red color. Pink creamy head sits on top like a worlds most delicious dessert. Fresh cherries, malty, juicy aroma. Sweet, sour, cherry stone flavor. Crisp sourness, and sweet mellowness mix well in this one. First beer in a morning? Not a problem.

25cl Bottle. Appearance: . a dark ruby with a frothy pink head. Aroma: sweet cherries and yogurt. Taste sweet Cherries with a little sourness and some tanine in the back. Dominant sweet Cherries, a bit too sweet, but still good. medium, syrupy body, average carbonation.. Allthough too sweet there is enough quality there.

Bottle at home. Pours dark ruby with frothy pink head. Aroma of sweet cherries and yogurt. Taste sweet with a little sourness, cherries dominating. Too sweet aftertaste.

37.5cl bottle. 08 Sep 2016. I was trying to think of how I would describe the colour and the obvious answer is that it’s cherry coloured. Tall, frothy pink head which lasted well and left some lovely Brussels lace. Powerful aroma of black and sour cherries. Reminds me of a cherry starburst. Medium sweetness and a pleasant tartness. Medium-full bodied, smooth, spritzy, sticky and a lip-smacking tart finish. Delicious. 9.

Aroma: what else to expect than cherry? As cherry has intense aroma nothing else comes through for me. Appearance: red, hazy, minimal head, taste: medium sweetness, heavily sour. Palate: light body, thin feel, lively, abrupt finish.

355 mL foilded bottle poured. Pours a dark red color with a huge foamy pink head. Sweet wet cherry aroma. I don’t know. I guess I’m a suckered for these super sweet, cherry pie filling flavored beers. I love them. So easy to drink, and so full of fruit flavor. Enjoyed this like all the others. Good beer.

Not really my glass of beer, but this is a pretty decent oddity of the brewing world, and one I would serve to friends for a change of pace. Note to hop-heads... "the presence of cherries (or raspberries) predates the almost universal use of hops as a flavoring in beer". So perhaps we have the Ur-Beer here? Too bad they add the sugar, though (or the stevia, I believe). Still attempting to master pouring beer into a thistle glass, which all too often results in a glass full of foam!

Un vrai goût de cerise dans votre verre c'est ce que promet cette splendide lambic. Avec la pécheresse ma bière fruitée préférée. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pink-red colour with a small head. Smells of cherry chewing gum. Slick texture, medium body and pretty sweet mainly tasting of cherry and sugar. Finish is short-medium.

Really good cherry aroma. I like this brand as it isn’t syrup like some fruits. Nice light carbonation with some wood in background.
