marv3mania (185) - 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 (1474) - 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 (3046) - 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.

markextrae (959) - NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2014
Bottle at home. Poured a ruby Brown colour with a off white head. Over ripe cherries, sugar, caramel, weird murky flavour, sweet stinky aftertaste. Cant even finish it

mutz (597) - NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2014
Donker roodbruin, plakkerige kraag. Aroma is kersen, marsepein en iets muffigs. Smaakt idem maar heeft ook iets zoetzurigs. De nasmaak is een beetje raar. Ik moet zeggen het bier onaangenamer wordt naarmate het glas leger raakt en de temperatuur van het bier stijgt.

yngwie (13558) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle, 75cl corked. A more or less red beer, topped by a light beige head of moderate size. The aroma has lots of laquer at first, then cherries, cherry pits and marzipan kicks in. Gets quite pleasant after a while. The flavor has a little sweetness, but it’s mostly quite sourish. Some oaked notes, with marzipan, almond and cherries. Some alcohol too. Full body, dryish and quite pleasantly carbonated. Well, it’s very nice in a way, still far from a favorite of mine. 140418

Bottle 750ml @ yngwie
Pours clear deep amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, cherries, lacquer, marzipan and sugar. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light bitter with a long cherry and sweet marzipan finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Douberd (2289) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a tulip. ABV 8.5%. From the local Jan Linders Deep red ruby colour on the body, tall off-white head, good density, good retention. Heavy lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma of cherries and candy sugar. Nice but every now and then seems a bit artificial. Nice taste, sweet. with lots of cherries, contrary to the aroma the cherries here seem more natural and "real". Notes of sugar. The alcohol very well hidden for an 8.5% beer. Medium body, average carbonation. Overall a good beer.
