12oz bottle. Pours ruby red with minimal head. Smells sour cherry. Taste follows with something dry in the middle...nice sour finish. Pretty good but feels like they missed a little on this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle @ Grassroots Natural Market / Jacksonville FL --- Clear very dark ruby amber, ruby-white head cover, dots and blobs of lace. Taste is somewhat sour cherry that grows substantially into the palate, becoming sweeter and more fizzy. Malt shows in a lingering tart finish. A surprisingly solid fruit beer.

Nice beer with a powerfull cherry taste, as the Kasteel red for those who know it.
Aroma overhelmed by the sweet dark cherries, great purple appearance with a creamy rose head.
Try it, love it !

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours dirty red-purple with a tall and almost creamy purplish head, reviving and leaving nice lacing. fragrant and strong cherries, cheap canned maraschino cherries - too red to be true-like, woodsy if not woody - feoders i’m guessing - gently acetic; astringent wood, some sweetness - cherry meat, phenolic esters-plenty. average to light carbonation, light body - oily; sweet, gently tart/tannic grassy-cpisy finish. intense, but wood treatment helps to balance it a bit. and adding extra character. o-k.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a deep ruby-hued pink body with a small pink-hued white head. Nose is marzipan, cherry pits, almond essence, tart red berries and hints of herbs. Taste is sweet cherries, almond essence, red berries, hints of herbs and white sugar. Medium body, high carbonation. Fair enough for the sweet fruit beer that it is, but no winner.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, Delirium Café, Brussels, 26 Oct 2014) Dark ruby colour with frothy, pinkish beige head. Fruity sourish nose with caramel, cherries and red fruit. Fruity, slightly tart taste with notes of cherries, almond, caramel, red fruit and a sweet and sour finish with a balanced bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and fruity with a balanced acidity making it fairly complex. Quite nice.
