3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark Red Coloring. No Head. Cherry Aroma..Musty Cherries.... and the Flavor is Those SAME Cherries After Sitting on the Table for a YEAR....Almost Like a Burnt Old Cherry Taste. Crisp At the End... Not Quite My Favorite....

This is not the beer for me.
pours out a cherry "koolaid" red with a fast fading head.Smells like sherry and nuts.
Not a bad taste,but not for me.Starts with a sort of metallic stale taste,then tart cherries and wood.buried in there is a band-aid sort of unpleasant flavour,like the beer is "off"The beer is thin.
Strangely this beer tastes better guzzled!!!?

Pours a pink/mahogany colour with a thin pink head. Aromas of cherries, pipe tobbacco, cinnamon. Tastes of cinnamon, cherries, red wine, has a nice sourness to it and none of the flavours were to overbearing. Quite nice I belive Iíll need more for christmas.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful ruby-purple beer with a frothy pink head. Prominent cherry aroma, warm spices (nutmeg, clove, cinnamon). Tannic and lactic acidic aroma. Flavour is nicely structured, a bit of lactic and acetic acid. Vineous quality. Cherry flavour, spice, with a nice tart and fruity finish.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sparkling clear ruby body topped by a foamy small pink head. The aroma is sour cherries and light nuty malt. Sour cherry with a fakish cherry flavor, cherry syrup I guess. Really not very good, tastes kind of off to me, a bad funk rather than the good funk that I enjoy so much. Very stringent finish. Not very good. I am dissapointed as the others from this brewery are quite good.

One of a six-different-beers-present, normally I would only buy one of those cherry-beers for using in some cooking-recipe. This one tastes like cassis-lemonade, only the pink head reminds me that this is beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
In a bottle labelled "Echt Kreikenbier" but it seems to be the same stuff. Deep dark red with a sour cherry aroma and a bit of balsamic vinegar. Flavour is more of the same and quite a bit more simple then I would of expected, by the end of the bottle I was a bit dissapointed.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Looks raspberry red pouring out of the bottle. In the glass itís somewhat darker with a pinkish purple head. The nose here is interesting with a bit of cherries (of course) along with some sort of unidentifiable funk thatís not the normal horseblanket thing you expect in sour beers--not really bad but interesting. Flavorwise this comes across a bit mild but with hints of cask wood, clove, nutmeg and raisin. Slightly sweet and just a little bit tart. Slightly watery on the palate. Not bad but thereís cherry beers Iíd rather drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a beautiful ruby hue with a small rapbery colored head. Aromas of yeast and cherries. MOuthfeel is medium bodied with flavors of ummm.... cherries not as tart as many sour ale tend to be. A little dry, with little aftertaste.
