smells pretty, looks pretty. candy, cherries, sweet tarts. but yuck, this is NOT what beer is all about. entirely too sticky sweet. but hey, if you want a wine cooler, have this instead.

ciocanelu (838) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 1, 2016
Red color with pinkish head. Aroma has intense sour cherry juice and sweet cherry candy. Taste is sweet but also tart, like cherry candy, not really artificial but sweetened. Body is quite light with good carbonation, really easy to drink. One of the best sweetened lambics, even of the best sweet fruit beers.

PhilosophyGuy (239) - Wroclaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2016
---Pisane na podstawie notatek--- Słodkie, kwaśne, wiśniowe. Barwy wiśniowej, piękna różowata piana. Aromaty kwaskowo-wiśniowe. Czuć również dziki charakter, ale jest go nieco za mało. Taki sobie balans. Mimo tych mankamentów - bardzo pijalne.

pitch992 (73) - SLOVENIA - APR 16, 2016
Aroma: cherry, sweetness, some gentle acidity, not much else. Quite artificial. Appearance: red, clear, minimal reddish head that dissipates quickly. Taste: medium sweet, very light sourness, cherries. light body, thin feel, fizzy, very long artificial sweet finish. Overall: Made to appeal to the masses, does exactly that and nothing else.

cagou007 (819) - FRANCE - APR 11, 2016
Pours deep ruby with a pink thin head that quickly vanishes. Nose is cherry. Aromas are mainly cherry, with sweet malt and candi as well. Taste is mainly sweet and a bit sour. Low carbonation, full body, oily texture. Long sweet cherry finish, with a tart note. Really tastes more like a cherry soda than a beer!

p5ychol (406) - Poznań, POLAND - APR 9, 2016
Barwa czerwona, wiśniowa, piwo jest klarowne. Piana jest różowa-jasnoczerwona, dosyć obfita, zbita, puszysta, drobnooczkowa, oblebia ścianki, jest dość trwała. W aromacie wiśniowa nuta winna, trochę słodyczy kojarzącej się z kompotem z wiśni, i właściwie tyle. W smaku raczej delikatna wiśniowa kwaśność, ale szybko kontrowana owocową słodyczą. Na finiszu jak najbardziej kojarząca się z wiśniami lekko pestkowa cierpkość Piwo jest dość intensywnie i drobno musująco nasycone. Ogólnie charakter piwa jest słodki, a kwaśność, choć wyraźna, stanowi tylko uzupełnienie, nie odwrotnie. Piwo dobrze pijalne, orzeźwiające.

Cloudy purple red pour. Pink head. Chery fruit juice aroma. Taste is sweet without much of the funk. Fruit juice.

datrael (75) - Kraków, POLAND - APR 7, 2016
Bardzo ładny wygląd, rubinowy kolor z czerwoną czapą piany. Aromat wiśniowy, w tle wino musujące, przyjemne. Smak kwaśny, wiśniowy, bardziej winny niż piwny. Lekkie, gaszące pragnienie, pijalne. Dobre do wypicia z żoną; ) bardzo przyjemne piwko, o zupełnie innym niż większość piw charakterze.

Melcor (5) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 31, 2016 does not count
Kolor czerwony, mętny. Piana drobno pęcherzykowa, dosyć obfita na początku, potem zanikająca prawie całkowicie. W smaku wiśnie, słodycz, kwaśność. Goryczki brak. Wysycenie niskie.

nathanvc (166) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2016
Pours cloudy and dark red with a medium pink head, very much like the Lindemans Framboise. Very inviting. The aroma contains cherries, sugar, marzipan, It tastes heavy sweet and light sour with a long finish. Oily texture and soft carbonation. Nice, although this one seems less complex than the Framboise.
