This is a flemish sour with cherries, but somehow the sourness got lost. What’s left is a malty beer with sweet cherries, like a fruit beer. Bummer.

PorterPounder (5367) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Tallahassee, Fl. - Market Square Liquors - 750 ml cage corked bottle. Chestnut brown pour, soft khaki colored frothy head. Succulent aroma of sour cherries. Flavor is candy sweet with an emphasis on the cherries with just enough sour to keep it interesting. Some chocolate covered cherries in the back end. Thicj, rich nicely textured mouthfeel. Nice Memorial Day treat while cooking burgers on the grill.

Countbeer (4317) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle: Served in a shaker: Sour red/brown my ass! This is another overly sweet fruit beer. What a waste of money! Couldn’t even finish a 33cl bottle. Fake shit! Artificial sweet red fruits and nasty bitter. Fucked up fruit beer. Bad! NEXT!

Nos, új gyümölcsös etalon született számomra. Amit először megláttam benne, azok a meggy darab foszlányok és már itt levett a lábamról. Aztán a csodásas sötét meggypiros szín, mely sokkal inkább sötétbordó, mint a szokásosos pirosas megysör átlag, aztán azaz illat ls az íz. És itt már az extázis határára érhet az, kinek van affinitása az ilyesmi orgia irányába ! Ráadásként az alkoholfokkal sem spóroltak ezúttal a derék belgák. Verhetelennek tűnik a fruit beer vonalon.

Deep red colour, with pink head. Smell is intense, cherry but also some fake note, maybe syrup. Also in the taste. Quite sweet, with little acidity.

BVery (5979) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 13, 2014
Tap. Reddish orange pour - more on the red side. Small pink frothy head. Syrupy cherries all over this. Slightly tart. Not bad.

cloudy red color; tart cherry aroma; great, tart cherry flavor with hints of oak

marv3mania (178) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Red-brown color with little head. Aroma is some caramel malts, a bit of yeast and funk, and a hint of cherries. Taste is big on the cherries with a nice malt backbone that isn’t overwhelming. Great all-around beer.

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2014
Bottle@Home. Not really bad but way too sweet and the ’schwarzwalder kitsch torte’ character and feeling is too much for me.

JulienHuxley (2947) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2014
33cl bottle. Murky deep red pour with pink head. Aroma of syrupy and artificial cherries, pretty much crushes anything including any sour brown character. Taste is distinctly medicinal, cherry cough syrup flavor. Palate is slick, sweet with low carbonation. Bleh.
