2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
#2200 (yeah I know not the fanciest choice – I will do something cooler latter on :) BBF 01/2014. Dark red, pinkish head which is quickly gone. Nose reminds me of Cherry Coke, super artificial sweetener heavy, sweet, better than taste, very fake,… Taste is crazily cloying, cough syrup, very artificial, too much added artificial flavours, artificial bitterness, crazily artificial,… Even body is like a soda, touch too light. This is a soda & not a beer. This has more in common with soda than with any beer. Like Lindemans Kriek with too many spoon artificial stuff thrown in there. Rediculous – would much, much rather have a Cherry Coke than this which is what this aims for – or at least that is how this feels like.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Pibar, Lausanne
Hazy bright red color with pinkish head, not persistent. Nice aroma of cherry syrup with light cherry pits. It had some residual sweetness, some cherry syrup fruitiness, and light acidity; therefore, quite balanced.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Pink with a white head. The aroma and flavor are very straightforward, with a ton of cherries and sugary notes. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Somewhat pale pinkish red colour, firm pink head. Aroma of cherries and cherry syrup. Light beer tones. Sweet flavour, sweeteners, cherry syrup and cherry candy. Cloying sweet finish, cherry candy, sweets, cherry coke. Leaves a lingering artificial flavour.
Too unbalanced sweet for my liking. More lemonade than beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilburs Fort Collins. Pours a murky, plum purple appearance with a pinkish head. Medicinal, artificial cherry, spritzy, cough syrup, champagne aroma. Kind of tastes like a melted popsicle that was carbonated like an Italian soda. Quite sweet and medicinal flavor. Kind of like Lindemann’s Kriek but not as good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy pink with small frothy off white head leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is strong cherry and rubber. Medium mouthfeel with light sour cherry and tart finish. Easy to drink a very good fruit beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: less red color, small unstable head.
Nose: almost like pure sugar, grenadine, "poepkes" (a kind of cherry flavored candy).
Taste: tastes like cherry extract, no sourness, way to much sugar, this isn’t really a beer in my opinion, but it is refreshing, but then you better drink a lemonade...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Head quickly dissipates. Head has a red tinge and the beer has a golden-red hue.
Aroma is almost completely of cherries, as is the taste. The mouthfeel is thick, with a lingering sweetness. Slight bitterness at the end of the finish.
From research: They do not use sour cherries as is traditional, but instead simply add cherry juice. None of the additional fruit sugar seems to have fermented. My mouth feels like I just took a sip from an Icee.
