Jesterdeal (1655) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Aroma of black cherry soda. Pours dark red with almost no head. Tastes like the best black cherry soda I’ve ever had. Shame it’s a beer.

Bottle:   Deep burgundy, reddish hues, moderate to large foamy tannish head, with a bit of a pinkish hue, nice lacing.   Holy smokes, smells like Cherry Cola.   Sweet cherry juice up front.   Very faint tartness or barrel aging.   Pretty damn sweet, and fairly artificial.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Really, this seems like the New Glarus of Cherry beers in some way.   I was expecting a Sour Red/Brown, not a Cherry Fruit Beer.   In that right its decent, a little artificial but enjoyable, but nothing about this really is sour.   Call it a Kriek Fruit Beer and I would give it a great score, but as a Sour, nope.

330ml bottle (Tuulensuu, Tampere)
Lovely cherry aroma. Some sweet red/bruin notes. Beautiful smooth palate, gentle carbonation - succulent. Marascino everywhere, all the way to the late finish. Lovely full sweet malty base. No sign of 8.5% at all. This is pure indulgence. It’s desert. Anna wrote "tastes of shit", so can’t have any of the next bottle that I buy. Hahahah, joke’s on you.

cbfobes (2153) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at Dexters, pours a dark brownish red with an off white head, the aroma was way more sweet than I was expecting, more cherry medicine like, the flavor was also way sweeter than I was expecting, not a ton of funk or sourness, the cherries are nice, but I was hoping for some more tartness mixed in, ok.

Mittenator (1093) - Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Draft at crunchy's. bright crimson and garnet when held to the light. Dry red berry aroma. Great cherry flavor that is the right amount of sweet and tart.

Beergeek23322 (2030) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - AUG 14, 2013
750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours redbrown with a thin tan head. Aromas of malt, rasberry, cherries. Rasberry and cherry flavors, a bit tart, but really not that sour. Nice balance.

tommann (2488) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours deep reddy brown with a small pink head. Aroma is slightly sour cherries. Taste is sweet cherry juice to start and a sweet and sour cherry finish.

Prufrockstar (682) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle dark ruby red, offwhite head. Aroma: tart cherry-cranberry cough syrup. Taste: follows nose. Way sweet, with medicinal and tannic notes to boot. Syrupy texture, full body, average carbonation. Overall: too syrupy sweet for my tastes, but I have friends who absolutely love this, so perhaps it's just a personal palate thing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SPDickerman (881) - Texas, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours deep ruby with a small pink beige head. Smells of tart cherries. Taste is strong cherries, mostly sweet, mild tartness. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Petrus Aged Red finishes with a subtle tartness.

Looks more ruby red. no head. smells like cherry pie. taste is oaky and tannic, sour for sure but very weird overall. Has a cough syrup finish.
