HuskerTan (1160) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Bottle. A- Cherry pie filling. A- Dark brown reddish color, dark liquid, brownish pink head. T- Cherries, cherry syrup, slightly sweet. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, fruity finish. O- Very good. Smells just like canned cherry pie filling. The taste is pretty well in line with that too. Not artificial or medicinal tasting. Could use a tad bit of tartness or a hint of sourness but overall it’s quite fine.

Beachmaster (269) - Oklahoma, USA - AUG 7, 2015
On draught. .Pours a clear deep red, with a small pink head that quickly fades. Nose is cherries and dark fruit, and the taste follows the nose. Very nice cherry flavor with just a touch of sour. A little sweet, but very refreshing.

hrabren (386) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 7, 2015
On tap at #Belgiek - Beffa Bar. Brownish red with medium off-white head. Cherry jam aroma, cherry liquor. Sour cherry aroma, like those fruits that lay in the cherry brandy. Like you wanted make brandy, but stopped at 7.7%

Fujimo2000 (29) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Pours plum with a rich smell of cherry. Very tart cherry taste with a lingering tart finish. There is no mistaking it. It just would not replace a cherry pie or cobbler so what’s the point.

Nsanders (833) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Tap at Tap House Grill. Ripe cherry, white board marker, sour grapes and sugar. Tastes a lot like it smells, sour and fruity. Body is medium with a clingy feel that is broken by fizziness.

On bottle from Vinmonopolet Norway, on order. Deep purple color, good pink foam. High aroma intensity; cherries!! Medium body & complexity. Immediately sweet, balances ok, but ends up a bit sweet. Enjoyable

Pours a dark ruby with a fizzy pink head. Aroma is cherry. Flavor is tart cherry. Not a lot of depth. I enjoyed it.

deyholla (8884) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle. Pours a cloudy deep purple red with a white/pink head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma combines tart cherries with pie cherries and a has a hint of a syrup note. Flavor is much more of a syrupy cherry note with a good amount of sweetness and a growing tartness through the finish.

wlajwl (4926) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Aroma is very sweet cherries. The flavor is sweet cherries, mild fruit, malts and a slightly vinueos finish

unclemike (2679) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Pours an opaque dark ruby with a creamy pink-tan head. Big sweet soda pop nose, very synthetic and reconstituted-smelling. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Tangy, sticky, cloying sweet fruity mid palate, like a soda pop. Definitely backsweetened, definitely from syrup.
