Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 30, 2011
Fruchtiger, etwas modriger Antrunk. Wenig alkoholisch, dezent herb und auch hopfig. Süßlich-modriger Mittelteil, hefig, herb-alkoholisch. Die Fruchtigkeit ist eher gering und in weiten Teilen nur hintergründig erkennbar. Süßlich-herber Abgang. 10/9/10/9/10/9

MoritzF (8402) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 9, 2007
(bottle, traded with DerDoppelbock) Hazy, red coloured hue with loads of floaties swimming around and a big pinkish foamy head. Dusty, moderately sweet and fruity, slightly artificial cherry-like aroma. Sweet flavour with a bitter edge in the finish, medium bodied, crispy mouthfeel. The cherry notes are not extremely intense; finishes quite bitter with a slightly sour, cherry fruity aftertaste. The alcohol presence is obvious and a little bit harsh. Mediocre Fruit-beer.

JorisPPattyn (7807) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2009
Huge, dense head with a yellowish or pinkish shine, over reddish-orange beer. Mildly sweet, fruity-aromatic nose. Fruit could be indifferently cherry, raspberry or even redcurrant. Harsh, spicy flaovur, starting very shortly as bitter, then mainly sweet, with a faint threat for cloying. Fruitiness all but gone, just a faint aromatic finish left. Medium bodied, cloying not setting through. Bit watery, even. Rather unassuming, and also uninteresting fruitbeer. Get some serious cherries, will ya!

Benzai (7287) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014
Bottle shared @ weekly tasting. Very hazy unclear red color, small beige head. Can’t smell anything (could be because of my extreme hayfever allergy) except sweetness and a touch of red fruits. Taste sweetness, some red fruit, a bit artificial. Average body and carbonation.

thebeertourist (4761) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2009
On tap at Moeder de Gans, Teuven. Made with Abbesse de Mouland cherries from Voeren. Deep red orange with a nice pinkish head. Complex yeasty and fruity aroma. Surprisingly dry, though with some fruity sweetness. A bit perfumey. Quite good.

skortila (4433) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2007
Strong aroma of berries, not artificial, some caramel malt in it. Hazy, dark red coloured with a large reddish-beige head. Taste is sweet, fruity (cherry) with some caramel malts. Some carbonation in it. Some bitterness. Thanks to my parents who found this one at a beer festival somewhere near Hasselt I believe.

DutchDrebus (3863) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2014
Bottle @home shared by benzai. Hazy pink to red colour with a small pinkish head. Smells sweet, unfresh, red fruits. Tastes very sweet, lollipop, cherry candy, artificial. Medium body, soft to medium carbo.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 7, 2008
Bottle: Dirty ruby red pour with a pink off white head. The aroma is sweet fruit and malt. Taste is a sweet fruit, that subsides to a caramel malt. Very interesting fruit beer, almost like a US instead of a Belgium.

Shared this one w/ SkyCop32. Pours a clear golden brownish color. Aromas of mild berries, wheat bread, and a touch of hops. Flavor is a nice balance of soft fruit flavor with malts and a crisp dry finish. I’m not big on fruit beers, but this one has a subdued flavor, not over the top.
