Boutip (5950) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2005
Bottle: Poured a medium dark red with a medium pink color head with average retention. Aroma of cherries is overpowering and mostly comprised of syrup but some classic Rodenbach sourness is also noticeable. Taste is at first very similar to some of the other Belgian syrupy beer around with a not so enjoyable chemical aftertaste but I did noticed that toward the ends there is some of the Rodenbach taste I have been accustomed to. Overall, I believe this to be a classic Rodenbach with some added chemical syrup which render the experience more or less enjoyable.

Tap at white horse---Wow.....II really enjoyed this brew. Poursa hazy red/brownish hue with a small pink head. Aromas of caramel, a little funk, and oak. Flavors of the same, but with a finish that isn’t over-cloying.

Hazy dark red color, small pink head. Light aroma of cherry jam. Light taste, with some cherry jam, cherry candies, not particularly interesting.

Ernest (7362) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Head is initially average sized, frothy, pink, mostly diminishing. Body is murky purple. Aroma is lightly malty (caramel), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of cherry syrup and cask wood. Flavor is heavily sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. As a fruit beer (which this comes off as, despite being "based" on a sour ale), it’s still a bit too overpowering in the nose with cherry...it’s uncomfortably close to cherry soda. Quite sweet.

This one is another sweet cherry beer. The taste is really chemical, but there is worse on the market, it just isn’t my thing.

Indeed.. aroma of artificial cherries. That’s all in it. Hazy, dark-red coloured with a lasting pink head. Sweet taste. Sparkling, fresh mouthfeel. Artificial cherries. I must agree with dirkbreedveld; it’s not too sweet and for commercial purposes well brewed.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2004
Cloudy red beer wtih a small head. The aroma is rather synthetic cherry. The taste is very sweet witch reminds me more of a soft drink than beer. Rodenbach is one of my favourite beers so I am now a bit disappointed with the company. Why?

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 2, 2004
this new cherrieflavoured beer biy the rodenbachbrwery is not bad at all. It’s very commercial because it’s well designed, well balanced in sweetness and sourness, and not siruppy at all. Not the best "kriek" I know of, but acceptable.

omhper (23724) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2004
Bottled. Hazy dark red, small pink head. Ripe cherry aroma. Sweet and lightly balsamic with only a light tuch of acidity. Refreshing, but I would certainly like to have it drier.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2004
(Bottled) Nice, deep red color with small head. Quite clean and fresh, pleasant cherry aroma. Sweet cherry flavor with some sourness and sticky, sugary finish. Medium-bodied palate with low carbonation and well-balanced sweetness/sourness. A balanced, fruity and refreshing brew.
