tomer (1707) - 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.

DSG (5827) - 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 (605) - 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.

Mr_Hops (76) - Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2014
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...

Alengrin (1743) - BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2014
Sweet cherry beer based on the Barbe d’Or and a typical representative of the new trend of heavy, sweet cherry beers based on top-fermented Belgians, as is popular in especially Wallonia and France nowadays. Dirty pink, stable, mousse-like foam, colour a dark ruby red, darker than for example their Echt Kriekenbier. Aroma of cherry and blueberry jam, bit artificial, elderberry syrup, raisins, sour cream, hint of nutty malt. Taste sugary sweet, cherry candy, round and mellow, all built on a bready maltiness and more or less balanced out by a sourish, lemon-like hint, finish reveals some mild grassy hops. Never been a fan of this genre but this one is better than average.

Csouye (37) - OLNE, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2014
Surtout ne pas confondre avec la Leffe Ruby, mélange artificiel d'arômes avec une bière banale... Celle-ci est une vraie bière aux cerises, avec une belle pointe d'acidité et une amertume assez fugace qui vient équilibrer le tout...
