Bottle into tumbler, deep reddish hued brown color with foamy tan head. Aroma of candy cherries, liquorice and some red wine. Taste adds notes of caramel, tart sweet cherries, slight nuttiness and tannic oak. Light body, moderate carbonation, sour, sweet, dry with malty tart finish. Nice fruity sour, somewhat on the candy sweet side.

nuplastikk (4568) - 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 (9242) - 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 (645) - 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.

Stuedmaster (226) - Vista, California, USA - SEP 28, 2014
750 ml. bottle, dark reddish brown pour with a slight tan head, no lacing. Aroma of sweet cherries, malt, slight oak. Taste is overly sweet cherry, kind of syrupy which dominates the flavor, light sour and no bitterness. Was expecting more tartness, I prefer Rodenbach or Monk’s Cafe. Low carbonation, sticky texture, medium body, and sweet finish.

dark cherry and woody notes. Dark blood-red clear with thin light-pink head. Medium-thick body with medium carbonation with some fizz. Starts sweet with cherries and brown sugar sweetness. Underlying bitterness and tannic quality at the finish. A little too sweet for my tastes.
