3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une bière très fruitée à la robe brillante et à la fine mousse mais l’ensemble est un peu trop écoeurant à mon goût

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, shared with Sandra in Gronigan. Murky purplish-pink, bubbly pink head-- looks great! Aroma and flavour of straight-up cherry juice, very sweet. Maybe a bit of yeasty undertones, but waaaay to sweet for me to enjoy. Almost like a cherry version of Fruili. Blech.

Sample at beer bloggers conference, Brussels 2015
super sweet to the extent that base beer obscured, not a fan but daisy enjoyed. Bright scarlet, pinkish head, rich cherry nose, sweet, a little thin, no tartness, a little sharp and acrid, swwet but not cloying just OTT

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 11.2 oz. bottle poured to small snifters, displaying a hazed, reddish copper hue, with a modest layer of white head foam that reduced quickly to a bubbly ring and light film, and spots & strands of lacing. The nose was pronounced cherry, somewhat maraschino-like, and tartness. The taste was similar and just as expressive, with a nice creaminess to the mouthfeel, not overly sweet, medium bodied, and lively, but non-fizzy carbonation. Thoroughly enjoyed it for what it was, a tasty, dessert/aperitif-like fruit beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very fruity. I don’t get the artificial flavors so strongly as some. Pours pink with foamy head and lacing. Light tang in finish but very sweet. I’ve had a lot of fruit beers worse than this. Bottle.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml Bottle - Pinky red in colour. Cherries (tastes artificial) and almonds dominate in both the aroma and the very sweet taste. Refreshing but a bit too sweet to drink more than a bottle of.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33 cL single bottle from Molly’s Spirits. Purple appearance with a small white head, diminishing to a ring. Aroma of sweet, artificial cherry juice. Similar flavor, very sweet, fruity, juicy and lightly tart. Light body with a heavily sweet finish. Not very fun and hard to drink. The label is also deceiving and the price is high ($5)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Felle kersen ontzettend zoet aroma. Licht troebel met een redelijke schuimkraag. Overzoet van smaak met een mooi kersensmaak dat wel, mierenzoet zelfs. Komt redelijk felletjes binnen, drinkt zich makkelijk. Niets bijzonders voor een kriek.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour on tap at Happy Gnome, deep reddish pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of cherry, cherry juice, lots of medicine, some cherry pie, slight bread and lots of sweet sugary notes, some slight lemon. Taste was basically all cherry, some caramelized sugars, vanilla, some slight pie notes with medicine, finishing sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Reddish orange in color with a firm off-white head on top. Sweet aromas of cherry juice, vanilla, grenadine and candy. Strong cherry flavors are the main theme there. Personally, I thought these flavors were on the sweet and syrupy side, but genuine. Not very tart at all, lots of residual sugar here. Lingering juice and taffy notes in the finish. I can see how a lot of people wouldn’t like this, but I actually thought it was pretty good.
