EtTuCthulhu (1070) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2014
This beer pours a opaque dark red color with a small pink head that fades quickly to a ring, and the aroma is reminiscent of vinegar and sour cherries with a hint of yeast. The taste is quite sweet, mildly sour, and a touch umami with a strong cherry flavor alongside a hint of vinegar making up the aftertaste. The palate fuses a thick and slick texture, medium-full body, and a soft carbonation.

Emeister84 (1037) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2014
Heavy cherry aromas, subtle paint thinner. Clear ruby with a mostly fading head. Sweet, potent cherry flavor, paint thinner is more prominent. Medium bodied. Like juicy cherry soda with a weird aftertaste, not unlike paint thinner.

bierkoning (10377) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle. Label says 7.7%. Ruby brown color. Cherry juice and lots of marzipan in the aroma and flavor. Sugary sweet, but also some welcome sourness. I am happy with this dessert beer.

tomer (1746) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - SEP 21, 2014
Draught sample, smallish head, very cloudy dark red colour, aroma of artificial and sour cherrie and some candy, frutiy, artificial cherry flavour, quite swet and nearly cloying, with a suprisingly strong berry sourness. Drinkable but still feels too much like an alcopop.

zvikar (3492) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - SEP 15, 2014

DSG (6105) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 14, 2014
Draught sample at Beers 2014 expo. Nice deep red color with a pink head. Sugary aroma of cherry Hubba Bubba bubblegum, some marzipan and a bit of alcohol. Sweet sugary flavor with cherry Hubba Bubba and a bit of alcohol. Really sweet, but still OK and not too boozy for 8.5%.

zvsn (632) - ISRAEL - SEP 14, 2014
At Beers 2014. Hazy red-ruby with a nice pink-reddish head. Aroma of cherries . Sweet, a bit artificial cherries flavors, light tart notes in aftertaste. Light-medium bodied, syrupy, quite drinkable, though a bit too sweet.

Travlr (12260) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Ruby color (duh), white edge head. Aroma of Vicks cough drops. Taste is more like Dimetapp.

Aroma of candy like cherry and sweet malt. Rate beer has this as a fruit beer, it is actually a light sour... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ik drink graag fruitbieren, maar dit was toch een van de slechtste dat ik al geprobeerd heb...
