sdriessen (320) - Dunedin, - DEC 31, 2010
Hint of metal in the aroma, lots of cherry and berry. Lovely colour. Teensy bit of hops. Smell of crisp, sweet malt.
The flavours are quite sweet, and very full of cherry! Flavours remind me of a lot of other fruit also.
Clean and refreshing, but possibly too sweet. Some nice tangy acidity in there also, I like it.

Dark reddish color, off-white head with medium retention. Aroma has notes of cherries, some wood and leather. Flavor is slightly sweet, cherry juice notes are highly present with some hints of pomegranate juice, light sirupy mouthfeel.

Fules (1338) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - SEP 20, 2017
Mélybordó szín, közepes, rendkívül tömör, tartós rózsaszín hab. Meggylé illata, némi karamellel keveredve. Meggyes, karamelles ízvilág, némi vaníliás, hordós felhanggal. Közepesen testes, enyhén szénsavas és kesernyés, kissé fanyar. Kellemes, picit édeskés, picit savanykás, jó arányokkal rendelkező sör.

Příjemné a dobré sladké pivo s ovocnou vůní, silnějším řízem, dobrou sladkokyselou chutí a jemnou pěnou.

nihtila (3869) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 10, 2017
Bottle from Tesco. Deep red, pinkish head. Nose is sweet cherry, juicy, raspberries. Tastes similar. Sweet cherry, light underlying sourness.

fantastic deep red cherry colour and amazing taste - in regards to the fact that this tastes far, far more like cherries than it does beer (and then in comes that beer aftertaste!). took me a long while to finish; a nice sipping beer with a deep flavour. absolutely glad i tried this, as it is beautifully crafted and presented. would i repeat though? probably not.

Bottle @home (rating backlog). Pours bright red, pink head. Nose is cherries, almonds, marzipan, it smells sweet. Taste is as the nose way too sweet for me.

Jultsu (1185) - TAMPERE, FINLAND - JUL 14, 2017
BBE 14/09/2018. Punertavan musta väri, olematon vaahto. Hedelmäisän kirsikkainen maku, suht aidon oloinen, hapan, raikas, simppeli, hyvä.

Biroholik (1531) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JUL 2, 2017
Bottle @ Cesenatico, Italy (2017)
Objętość: 375 ml
Data ważności: 14.09.2018
Dodatki : Kriek z dodatkiem 15% wiśni.
Piwo ma kolor bardzo ciemnej czerwieni. Jest dość czyste pod światło. Piana biało-różowa, lekka. Ładnie oblepia szkło. Przez umiarkowany czas wisi nad piwem. Według informacji na etykiecie piwo leżakowało w dębowych beczkach. Aromat jest winny, raczej słodki, zero kwaśnych sugestii. W dużej mierze zdominowany przez wiśnie. W tle może minimalna dzikość. W smaku kompot z wiśni, dżem owocowy, słodki likier wiśniowy. Jest także sporo cukru. Piwo bliższe raczej jakiemuś Fruit Ale. Beczki nie czuć zupełnie. Piwo jest bardzo słodkie w smaku, mało ma wspólnego z Kriekiem. Niemniej jednak w kategorii soczku pije się świetnie ;)

faroeviking (11119) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - JUN 17, 2017
Botella. Nice red-brown colour, off-white head, small and bubbly. Sweet pleasantly fruity cherry tart aroma. Flavour: Fruity cherry tart, very nice, long lasting tart fruity finish. Yum!
