androman (565) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 23, 2014
Sample @ Léhűtő, Budapest. Body is hazy, deep red, Head is medium, off-white, creamy, mostly lasting, good lacing. Nose is cherry, Aroma is cherry bubble gum, molasses. Taste is heavy sweet, medium sour, Finish is medium sweet, light bitter, average duration. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Interesting, not bad, just not my style.

330ml clear glass bottle (Koht Birthday Auction, Tallinn)
Sickly sweet cherry, dirty other aromas, wet dog. Sharpish palate, but watery. Does have cherry, and other berries, in abundance, but the beer is weak. Unsatisfying in almost every way. Shame, as it seems to be quite cherry-ey. Pink, small frothy head.

gnoff (8005) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - JUN 22, 2014
Draught at Léhűtő, Budapest, on June 19, 2014.
As "Star Meggy".
Clear reddish color, pink head. Sweet, cherry, pips, almond paste scent. Sweet, sugary, cherry candy taste. Medium mouthfeel, very low bitterness. Sweet and sour candy like aftertaste. Not bad for a few sips, but not something I want to drink a whole lot of.

Buongiorgio00 (917) - - MAR 25, 2014
Birra interessante, dominata da una presenza di ciliegie che conquistano completamente il palato lasciandosi dietro una scia acidula e dolce. Nè una kriek né uno sciroppo, l’ho trovata piacevole ma una pinta intera può stomacare sul finale.

aronvarga (300) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 17, 2013
Draft @ Élesztő. Clear, artificial red colour, short-life pinkish small white head, sour cherry aroma, light body, smooth fizziness, sour cherry and slight sweet malty taste, vegetal bitter palate with hoppy notes.

Uhlen (251) - Trondheim, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2013
Pours a deliciouslooking red with a white almost non-appearent head. Aroma of sour cherrys candy, limes and sweet malts. Taste is suprisingly sweet, and low in bitterness. Good aftertaste and a crisp light body.

Lore (1267) - Budapest, HUNGARY - APR 27, 2013
hazy red colour, some minimal pinkish head;aroma is fully dominated by sour cherry; taste of sour cherry with some malty sweetness (with can’t ballance the souris taste) and bitter aftertaste; I like it

inbirraveritas (1269) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 17, 2012
Draught. Opalesquent ruby red colour, fine pored off-white/pink head. Tart, cherry fruity nose and aroma escorted by sugar, dough and hops in the background. Slick mouthfeel. Tart and dry finish with citrusses underpainted by a mild hoppy bitterness. Really good one.

luttonm (2545) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Draft at Skanzenclub, Budapest. Nice, fun pinkish head on ruddy reddish body. Full ’Jolly Ranchers’ candy nose, but more mild, only the slightest bit sour. Red cherry sweet body. A nice surprise for dessert! Very ripe fruit and quite alright.

dr.dod (343) - Szeged, HUNGARY - NOV 9, 2012
33cl bottle. Stari Meggysör is a good fruit beer with some fault. It has nice sour aroma, some yeast, and malt and hop at the end. A little bit thin and citric for me. And costly. :)
