Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2011
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours a cloudy pale red with a tiny off-white head. Minerally aroma with dry red berry notes - not really distinctly cherry. Medium body, carbonation is a little low, slightly sweet berry fruitiness with a little yeast and phenols. The alcohol is fairly subdued. Not really that interesting, but at least genuine fruit. 190511

GT2 (7899) - Carlsbad, California, USA - APR 14, 2011
Tap at Bir&Fud in Rome. Listed as 6.5% abv. Maybe a newer batch? The pour is a hazed, near opaque, dirty, deep red with a giant, yellowish head. Nice retention and webby lace. Aroma is sweet cherry juice box, light vinegar, spice. Taste is tart cherry, juice, cherry pie, cooked/baked red cherries, light alcohol, lemon, key lime tart. Palate is thin, watery. Easy enough to drink, fairly malt heavy and tangy. A surefire chick beer.

(Bottled, 2007 vintage, thanks colonna!) Hazy red-amber with a smallish head. Very fruity, mildly tart-red-wineous nose with strawberries and cherry. Flavor is also extremely fruity with mild tartness and acidity, strawberry jam, floweriness, notes of cherry, faint bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. An excellently balanced fruit beer.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
Batch G 2007, 9% ABV
Cloudy orange-amber color; big frothy head; indeed there is a lot of carbonation in the bottle. Strange aroma, fruity flowery and soapy, strong. Good body, good Strong Ale, with some sugars; there is a light fruity character, soapy too; at the end, in the low bitterness, there is a light impression of liquorice. It’s a very good beer, but the soap touch puts me off (6-4-7-3-13=33)

Give it some times, the soap aroma goes away, and leaves the place to a hint of honey and herbs. Still solid mouthfeel and flavor, but not enough bitterness (7-4-7-3-14=35).

JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 9, 2008
Head soon gone; red-hazy amber beer. Very fruity, sour cherries, and old cognac. Serious point of acidity. Fruity, lactic-sour, laurel leaf, very dry finish. Dry, dry-out effect, rather light impression because of the acids; Liked it at least as much as the Barriquée version, even when that makes it more spectacular, short of better.
