Tap at Congregation. Cherry aroma. No head. Red body with attractive translucence. Taste is cherry and not too vinous (I donít like vinous) but a little. Thin body like wine with good carbonation like champagne.

ryecatcher (1064) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2015
Bottle. Reddish amber pour, pink tinted frothy head. Nose is cherries, fruity funk, minerals, cider, some diacetyl notes. Mouth is medium bodied, tart up front, fruit forward, then sweetens up mid-range. Balsamic, woody, cherries, mildly medicinal, band aids. Finished a little too sweet for my taste.

suprchunk (2684) - Crestview, Florida, USA - AUG 21, 2015
My wife loves this one. Cherry brown pour. Small tannish head. Little lacing. Aroma of something resembling cherries. Taste is a sweetly sour type of deal. Some fruity notes kind of like cherries.

ChtiBreizh (258) - Rennes, FRANCE - AUG 10, 2015
Pinkish with a small frothy head. Cherries, prunes, vinegar, light wood. Medium sweet and light tart. Not as sour as an oude kriek, lots of fruit, quenching and well made.

Bottle shared by Brian - thanks! Pours clear burnt umber with a reddish tint, small beige head, good lacing. Aroma is oaky, hint of nail polish, cherries. Flavor is light sweet, light tart, very lightly funky, some nail polish remover here, along with cherries. Medium body, high carbonation. Not bad; easy to drink.

TET (2206) - Kaarina, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2015
A beautiful, dark red colour, a head is almost medium and pink. Aroma has strong cherries, sourness, some balsamico and barrel. Taste has natural cherries, some raspberries and barrel, medium sourness is balancing and thus the beer isnít too sweet. Medium bodied, sparkling carbonation. Good beer, natural cherries.

Foffern (1468) - BodÝ, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle at home. One year old bottle. Pours a clear, deep wine red color with a light pink head. Sweet aroma of cherries, sweet vinegum, oak, forest berries, earth and some barnyard. Sweet is also the flavor with lots of sweet berries, sweet and sour cherries, some vinegar and hay in the end. Has a soft and slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. Without a doubt a cherry beer, pretty sweet, but not much else.
