tmrmwel (1156) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark red, with a light, airy head. Aroma is sweet malts, fruit and vanilla. Flavour is very sweet, with lots of cherries. Easy drinking, but a bit too alcopop-ish.

superspak (3115) - Michigan, USA - JUL 16, 2012
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, 2011 release. Pours lightly hazy reddish orange color with a nice 2-3 finger dense cream colored head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Some decent spotty lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of cherry skin, cherry juice, toast, biscuit, caramel, earth, nuttiness, herbal, and light yeast spiciness. Pretty nice and pleasant aromas, but they are a bit weak. Taste of cherry juice, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, caramel, herbal, earth, pepper, and yeast spiciness. Light fruity tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of cherry, toast, biscuit, nuttiness, earth, herbal, pepper, and light yeast spiciness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance of malty fruit flavors with peppery spiciness. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly slick, syrupy, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian style fruit beer. Nice balance and complexity; and very smooth to sip on. Very pleasant and enjoyable offering.

DocLock (8311) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft at Railroad Street. Pours hazy brownish ruby with off-khaki head. Nose is yeasty spice, earthy cherry, backup hops. Tastes fruity, with a tart cherry flavor complexed by some funky yeasty and earthy notes, and even a tad of cinnamon late.

sulawang (687) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2012
pours cloudy reddish-brown with a small foamy head, dispersed slow moving CO2 streams. A bit of fruity malt on the nose but rather muted. Sweetness (8/10) hits first, and then the pleasantly sour (5/10) tartness (3/10) kicks in, flavours of sweet red cherries, cream, which then transitions smoothly into almonds, vanilla, and medium malts. Finishes lingering soft bittersweet (6/10). Med-high complexity, med-high depth, great transitions, great carry, great drinkability. Excellent balance of sweet, malty, and nutty cream.

gramity (1530) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours with a hazed pink hued body with a large and foamy white head. Aroma of fruit, cherries mostly, vanilla, a light bready malt structure and a lot of sugary notes. Flavors are pretty straight forward, cherry, light milk sugar. Fruity, pretty sweet. Maybe a bit nutty? Slightly oily/slick mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Kind of one dimensional fruit beer.

radarsock (1096) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Pours pinkish-crimson with a diminishing tannish head. Smells of baked rye, pistachios, martini cherries and leather. Tastes of trail-mix, caramel, cherries, and DXM. Good but perhaps a bit too sweet for the style and my tastes.

jkwood04 (4422) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 25, 2012
500ml bottle in a flute. Pours reddish amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of cherries, caramel malts, and a good amount of floral hops. Flavor about the same, with the almond lacking a little. Average texture. A pretty good fruit beer.

DiarmaidBHK (3616) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle from AJ’s Fine foods. Pours muddy with an inch of white foam. They use artificial corks which are a real pain to remove. Hints of almond on the nose. The almond is much bigger on the tongue than the cherry. The one who compared it to marzipan is pretty close. The cherry is much more prominent on the finish. Interesting but not my favorite Mikkeller.

Bendrixian (1255) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 12, 2012
cloudy brew, with a pink/orange colour. Bock like aroma, with a cherry /almond mix. tastes of sugar and cherry, fresh fruit and wine like tannins, sweetness is balanced by cherry sourness, reminds me of marzapan. balanced but different.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 6, 2012
375mL bottle: Pours a slightly hazy dark amber ruby with a thin covering of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet fruity cherry and toasted caramel malty nose. Starts with some light malty sweetness, earthy cherry skin and tart fruity notes and a hint of buttered nuttiness before a drier bittersweet finish. Could be a little cleaner, but an interesting concept nonetheless.
