Red coloured beer. Medium carbonation. The cherries really come to you in the nose. In the taste as well together with a dryness and woodiness. Taste tends to go towards a soda like artificialness. wich is a shame. Not my favourite but I can imagine fruit beer lovers will like this one a lot.

Pours ruby red with long lasting creamy head. Immediately a heavy aroma of cherry syrup. fizzy mouthfeel. Cherry syrup, red wine vinegar, red fruit bitterness. its too stringent for me.

Not bad but not for me. Compared to kriek lambics this is too sweet and syrupy. It is a nice dark heavy beer with a very outspoken cherrie flavor. It has some tartness and flavor of cherry syrup and marzipan. Luiquid candy.

nuplastikk (4698) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 19, 2014
750ml bottle. Pours a deep, thick cherry red-brown. Foamy beige head. Big cherry aroma, thick, sweet, unmistakeable. Cool beer, in some ways like Rodenbach Grand Cru, but less tart. Has thick cherry tones that remind me of Gluhkriek, Chelque de Chose, Kasteel Rouge. Their is some faint wine like alcohol tones, but overall a smooth, sweet cherry brown. Mild port tones. The cherry is nice, but a little artificial at times, like a Lindemans. Cherry tootsie pop indeed.

hopscotch (9493) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Bottle... Pour clear and fairly dark with glimmers of ruby and a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is both stoopid fruity and lightly malty – bigtime black cherries with an undercurrent of caramel. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. Finishes boozy and lightly tart. Very enjoyable.

RW80 (775) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
330 ml bottle Appearance: Dark reddish brown pour with a slight tan head of 1 finger, which leaves no lacing. Aroma: sweet cherries, malt, and a hint of oak. Taste: Sweet (syrupy) cherries with a hint of sourness and a touch of tanine int he finnish. Aftertaste are cheriess with soime tanine, which is nice and not as sweet as the initial taste. thin body,average cabonation. Too sweet for the main part, a bit more tartness would have made this so much better.

Tap @ the Answer. How many licks does it take til you get you the middle of a... Cherry tootsie pop.
