JeffroDH (18) - - DEC 5, 2013
A light, bubbly, ruby red pour. Aroma smells strongly of tart cherry, a bit monochromatic. That quality permeates the entire experience of this beer: cherries are up front in the flavor, and the sour follows quickly. The finish won't decide between bitter and sour, and the ale never really presents itself. Despite the criticism, it is a well-made beer with complexities that begin to present themselves toward the bottom of the bottle. Worth trying.

Bij lonneke met kerst, roodbruin met een witte kraag. Geur en smaak erg zoet met duidelijk de kersen. Volle zoete afdronk. Voor mij te zoet, al zijn dr ergere zoete kriek bieren.

AWS9 (506) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2014
Tap. Quite nice deep, red pour with a lasting head. Inviting wood, cherry, and malt notes in the aroma. Malts, sugars, fruit. Mild alcohol burn. Didn’t blow me away flavour-wise, but nice touches on this one.

Eructoblaster (3120) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
On tap at Bier Markt (Ottawa, ON). Pours a dark copper body with ruby glints and an average, lasting, beige creamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with oaky and fruity hints. Its well balanced taste carries oaky, nutty, brown sugar, and fruity notes. Ends with a decent sour finish.

Petkus331 (282) - Redford, Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Aroma of a cherry tart. Appears copperish brown, lots of lace, thin white foam. Tastes of sour cherries flowed by mild hay like european hop bitterness. Overall, nice, but m’ waifu thinks it tastes like robotusim.

firstsip (508) - Michigan, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Tap. Dark, dark ruby. Some nice lace. Nose is very cherry cough medicine, raisin. Smooth body. Tastes straight up like the Tus--syrupy cough medicine cherry sweetness. Even leaves the same film in your mouth that you get from a cough drop.

SlimHabib (233) - California, USA - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle pour. Dark red with a medium tan head. Aroma is cherries, sugar, and dark malts. Smooth full body. Sugary with fruity malts, cherries, and a light sour finish.

chromeotaphor (54) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 10, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 Zoetig kersen aroma hinten van glühwein en kersen. Fel Donker rood van kleur. Zoet zuur in balans en licht droog in de mond. Vrij dik en smeuïg qua consistentie in smaak. Niet al teveel diepgang. Kers(glühwein)-tachtig.

Draft. A nice medium reddish brown, not dirty looking. Cherry pie. Oak. Rich cherry. Some alcohol. Great aroma. Delicious and super drinkable. Sweet but not sugary or cloying. plain on the palate.
