trevor211 (1338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Sampled at Seattle International Beer Fest 2014 (delayed rate). Super-fruity, with tons of raspberry and cherry -- almost too much. And it’s artificial, almost like Robitussin. Very low carbonation... like a super-imperial Lindeman’s Framboise. Meh.

kraddel (3630) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle Pours very deep and dark red . Good white foam . Smell is superintense and sharp cherry-extract ( think of lindemans, but even more extreme ) . Taste is very sharp cherrys . Cherry to the extreme , candy-like . Touch of sourness. rather dry .Sweet , Feels very sugary . Ok tastewise ( for 2 sips ) but the scent is something hard to pass by for me ...

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Sourish, biotic, wild cherry aroma. Foggy merlot pour with a pinky-tan head. Clipart label. Sour, overly fruity, sweet, some chemical tones. Medium heavy body, tangy/tinny aftertaste. Drinking this reminded me of cheap kosher blackberry wine. Part of the Christmas pack from this brewery. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Tobiasoe (64) - NORWAY - NOV 16, 2014
Dense purple with small pinkish foam, cool-looking. Aromatically intense of cherry consentrate, not persuasive of all-natural ingredients. Thick on the palate, less than hoped carbonation, highly consentrated thick fruit with a decent acidic tartness in brief appearance, but much too little to balance the steadily increasing sweetness. Sticky finish, exciting sweet and feeling artificial. Probably a beer for someone but not me.

EtTuCthulhu (1141) - 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 (1129) - 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 (10563) - 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 (1806) - 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.

Draught sample at Beers 2014 Israel, Pours red with a pinky head, aroma of cherries, cherry candy, flavor of cherries and malt, sweet, medium bodied
