1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle acquired via a Christmas care package of beer from an aunt. Kind of a murky, hazy reddish brown color with initial head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is medicinal cherry and is not doing much to make me excited to drink this one. Almost a rubber cement quality as well. Taste is just...wow...cherry. Strong fake cherry...like what cough drops tasted like when you were a kid before you grew up and realized cough drops didn’t to taste like bad fake cherry. It’s a lot of flavor at the onset but quickly disappears. A very abrupt end. More sweetness than tart. Hard to imagine drinking more than the one bottle in...well, a lifetime. This is not my style but even if it was the score would not be favorable. Avoid.

330 ml bottle. Deep, ruby red body with a big, pink head. Strong aroma of synthetic cherry, almond and marzipan. Flavor is too much for me, very sweet and tastes like synthetic cherry essence. No complexity, just cherry. Only driinkable in very small amounts.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2016 Bottle at home. Deep ruby colored, almost brown, with weird looking light reddish brown head. Massive cherry jam, marzipan, bitter almonds, very sugary, some sour fruits, cooked raspberries, bitter leaves, Amaretto, vanilla cake. Very sweet, under medium bitter and light sour. Almost full bodied. Bit weird and very sweet but not as bad as I expected.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Donkerrood bier met schuim. Smaak is fruitig, kersen en ietwat friszuur, een erg goed fruitbier zoals er niet veel zijn. Diepe volle smaak.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark cherry aroma with slight sourness, syrupy cherry with bread.
Pours a garnet color with small wispy pinkish head
Sweet syrupy sour cherry flavor with bready malts and slight earthy hop
Light bodied with high co2, lingering cherry sweetness.
Very sweet beer but also very pleasant. A nice treat

Swietne piwo kawaskowo slodkie. Niczym lambick kriek. Wytrawna i mocna koncowka. Aromat owocowy czeresnie i wisnie. Piekna barwa bardzo czerwono bordowa, metna z drobinkami osadu czy resztek wisni. Piana spora trwala i rozowym zabarwieniu. Piwo smaczne owocowe mocno wisniowe. Kwaskowe i rozgrzewajace. Taka owocowosc miedzy Sour Wild Ale a Kriekiem. Do twardego dojrzewajacego sera w sam raz. Polecam

11.2 oz bottle, thanks Poisoneddwarf- Pours very murky dark cherry red with a light pink head that reduces leaving a collar and a thin blanket. Aroma is fresh pureed cherries, wow, honestly that’s about it, but very fresh and real fruit, not syrupy fake stuff. The taste is cherry again, fleshy, nice kriek here, medium to almost high tartness, full mouthfeel, fairly high carbonation. Yum, lip smacking.
