550 ml bottle into imperial pint glass, bottled on 9/20/2013. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby red color with a 1-2 finger dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of sweet and tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of authentic cherry notes and moderate bready malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big sweet and tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness. Slight earthy herbal bitterness and a fair amount of tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of sweet/tart cherry, cherry skin, apple, light caramel, toast, bread, light herbal, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic robustness and balance of big authentic fruit flavor with moderate bready malt sweetness; with a good sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and lightly creamy/syrupy mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome fruit beer. All around great robustness and balance of authentic cherry flavor and moderate bready malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

from Bier-Bienne - clear reddish-brown beer with a little foam left; solid aroma of sour cherries; sweet and medium-bodied, a light herbal tartness; quite lot of residual sweetness and long notes of cherry in the finish - a bit heavy yet ok

Smell is definitely all cherry. Tastes kind of like a Ludenís cough drop, cherry juice, cherry soda, cherry candy, etc. Aftertaste is medium to long length and the same. Texture is like lightly carbonated soda.

Bottle kindly shared by Dominique. A red beer with low pink head. Nose is so intense that it seems artificial ? Aroma is more pleasant than the nose, sweet malty, dry cherry touch, low acidity, drinkable but unfortunately mono-dimensional.

A slightly hazy garnet tinged mahogany color with a pink to tinted head with decent lacing. Aroma is dominated by a bing cherry flavor and sweetness. Taste is also predominately cherry that starts off sweet and artificial tasting but becomes more natural with some tannic cherry skin flavor and a hint of tartness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Very one note with cherry flavor and not much beer character, but it doesnít become cloying and is drinkable.

MayumiH (300) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2014
Pours clear red. Very attractive looking. Fruit beer is good to when you feel like it, and it was good when I had this because I felt like it. Fairly sweet with a definite cherry flavour. Good carbonation. Enjoyable fun drink.

UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 Bottle shared by my brother. Reddish amber pour with a nice large pink head. Smells a little like a Ludenís cough drop. Nice juicy cherry taste. Very flavorful.

Overall, surprisingly good! Long hot alcohol finish offputting. Nice carbonation - cherries, tart cranberry, strawberry. Looks like cranberry juice, with a fluffy nice head.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a super nice two and a half fingered white to a tint of reddishness in the head. The head must have lasted for at least a good three minutes before it even decided to dissipate. Once it did, there was a super thick amount of lacing gracing the sides of the glass very nicely. The smell was tart cherries. The taste was tart, sweet and has a touch of sourness but in a good way to complement the flavoring. With a slight refreshing yet crisp cherry aftertaste, the finish ends up being quick and refreshing. On the palate, this one sits about a medium on the body with a superb sessionability about this one. Wow, I feel like I could pound this all day! Overall, I didnít expect this one to be so sessionable. This is an exceptionally well done beer and should be the benchmark for Cherry beers.
