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.
(From 33cL bottle @ home)

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep, hazy rose-pink with a high pale pink head. Nose is intensely cherry in the pie and spice spectrum. Good acid, some bitterness on the finish to balance the sweetness, and finishes clean and bright. The fruit is excellent. This is pretty darn good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bright reddish-pinkish with an off-white/pinkish head. Aroma of cherry flavors and candy. Taste is cherry candy and some weird off flavors. Medium bodied; slightly dry. Ok, kind of obnoxious though.

Pours hazy red with a bright pink head. Aroma of sweet cherry and strawberry. Taste is very sweet with a touch of sour keeping it from being too cloying.
