pours a nice reddish brown with a quickly dissipating average tan head. This beer tastes mostly like sweet and sour cherries with a slight bit of chocolate. This beer tastes a lot like wine.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Aroma of a cherry Tossie Roll. SWEET/SOUR CHERRY! A thin head quickly dissipates leaving a white ring with moderate lacing upon a solid cherry coke hued pour. The taste is (thankfully) just short of surpy sweet; there are enough sour elements to balance sweetness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Overall, I liked the beer. The taste, while sweet, is balanced and very enjoyable. I think this brew will pare well with a numbers of foods.

On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear dark ruby color with a tan/pink head. Cherry juice aroma. Cherry and caramel malt flavor. Vinous character with a bit of tartness. Very good.

If you like cherries this beer is for you. I thought the cheery flavor was fake but it isn’t this beer is aged in cherries. Smells like cherries and tastes like a woodsy cherry elf brew.

33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Hetty. Ruby brown with a beige head. Cherry aroma and taste. The sourness is pushed a bit to the background due to the cherries. While I absolutely love all Flemish Oud Bruins the addition of cherries, thus creating a sort of kriek lambiek, just isn’t my cup of tea. In that aspect it’s a disappointment; on the other hand: I had lots of krieks that were worse.

Lore (1218) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 8, 2014
dark ruby colour, half inch of pinkish beige head, which disappears relatively quickly, leaving back some lacing; aroma of cherry, some marzipan, maybe some raspberry; taste of cherry again with significant bitterness and hints of marzipan; surprisingly dry beer; not bad

Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a small off white head. Aroma is mostly cherry with a slight bit of malt. Flavor starts out with cherry sweetness that finishes with a fair amount of tartness. Not as sour as I hoped. I prefer their Our Bruins and Aged Pale more.

Benzai (8986) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle @ home shared by Thompson. Clear deep dark mahogany red color, small off-white to beige head that diminishes almost instantly. Aroma is mostly artificial cherries. Taste sweetness, slightly sour cherries, cherries, slightly vineous. On the other hand, it could also pass as a fruit lemonade. Average body, a bit fizzy carbonation.
