Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent mahogany with off-white/light beige lacing. Smells of sweet cherry juice. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright, but a little cloying for my taste.

MegaMouth (2) - USA - JUN 1, 2013 does not count
Big cherry nose with a hint of almond (almost like Marzipan). Reddish brown color, Fast bing cherry on the tongue and finish disappears. Not a lambic and not trying to be one. Worth trying if you like fruit beers.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a deep brown/red. Nose has a strong cherry nose, fresh and sweet. Candied, low lacto. On tasting, taste is cherry dominant and sweet. Not artificial at all. Clean with low tartness. Reminiscent of a bigger sweeter NG Belgian Red. Good stuff overall.

Aroma: Cherries. Apperance: Deep ruby red, moderate white head. Taste: Mostly sweet, some tarntness but not really sour. Palate: Medium bodied Overall: Easy to drink, a better sell as fruit beer, than for one looking for a sour.

DavidWoodruff (390) - Windsor, California, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Aroma: Cherries Appearance: Mahogany with a thin beige/red head. Flavor: Sour cherries, kirsch liquor and a hint of raw almond. Palate: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a short finish. Overall: Pleasant, not overly sweet, but lacking the layers of flavor and funk in found in fruit lambics, reminds me of echt kriekenbier.

zizzybalubba (1395) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2013
750 mL bottle from Bruisin’ Ales, Asheville, NC. Dark red pour with a frothy off-white head. Pleasant aroma of tart cherry and oak that showcases the fruit but does not appear to be overwhelmingly tart. OK, so the aroma is deceptive. The taste is plenty tart but is met on the back end by oak and Earth that mellow this one out a bit. Along with the fruit, unfortunately there is a bit of artificial sweetener aftertaste. A good sour/fruit beer.

JaBier (4834) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Bottle at Winking Lizard Crosswoods on 4/7/13. Deep red color with a medium pink and tan head. Aroma of tart cherry and Belgian esters. Malty flavor with sweet cherry character before a mildly tart finish. Petrus continues to impress.

beastiefan2k (2368) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - MAY 26, 2013
750mL. Quick rate: not authentic, cheap, sweet, and artificial cherry with no actual sourness. For the Lindemans Kriek crowd more than anything else. Pretty beer though.

JefVerstraete (1219) - BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2013
Red colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. A bit sour, but also a chemical sweetness. Aroma of sweet cherry and candy. Too sweet for me
