Clear amber liquid with a definite red tint. Slightly pinkish head, which is small and goes away quickly. Minimal lacing. Definite fresh cherry smell, though not overpowering. Sweet malts behind it. Uncooked bread dough. Light sweet malt taste is out front. Nice light cherry follows. I hoped that the cherry flavor would be more pronounced. This is very mild. Mouthfeel is good. Crisp, yet somehow a little creamy, at the same time. Interesting. Very good and easily drinkable. Id want more of it if the cherry flavor were more dominant

Tasted at Sunfest 2008. Flavorful beer manages to include both roasted malt and cherry flavors. The hops linger a long time; this is a very substantial beer and a tasty treat.

12 oz bottle. The aroma is a bit stale...then again I have had it in the fridge for a few months. The flavor has a bit of cherry in it but I really have to pay attention to get it. (I am not expecting La Folie). Not too bad but nothing to write home about. Ten minutes of pleasure? Yes.

What a let down. To go from La Folie to this, seems as if it wasnt the same brewery. There is a dull cherry flavor, but it isnt sweet or sour. It is flat or stale. Not the best.

yespr (40447) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2009
12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild malty, a bit oldish and a vague cherry aroma. Creamy malty flavour and texture. Mild berry fruity note, yet distinct malt flavoured. Ends mild sweet and roasted malty with a vague cherry citric touch into the finish.

Ungstrup (34334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2009
Bottled. A pale amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of cherries and light notes of almonds. The flavor is sweet with notes of bread and caramel as well as lighter notes of cherries, leading to a dry bready finish.

Draft at brewery Aug 08: Poured a reddish color. The aroma was sweet malts and cherries. The flavor was cherry, sweet malts and finishes nicely with tart cherries. Overall, not a fan, but glad I tried it.
