Draught at Friends of Ham. I like almost all fruit beers but this one was sickening. It was like drinking kool aid filled with excess sugar and spiked with alcohol. It was refreshing but Would have happily traded this for my husbands Kernel.

The worst Belgian Ive ever had. At least drinking cough syrup makes you trip.

Cantabrian (1102) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 15, 2017
Not should I would call this a dessert beer. It feels more like a pre-sunday lunch cider. Ocre-red colour, with a loose, bubbly pink head. Fruity sour aroma and flavour of cheeries, sweet and sour. Cider. The palate is thin but sparkly and sharp, perfect for what the beer gives you. Not my pint of beer.

hauxe (629) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - APR 7, 2017
Pours dark red with a pink head. The aroma is cherry soda. Taste is quite fruity, sweet with sour undertones. Has a lively palate with lots of carbonation. Not much else to say, really. Okay, but not my style of beer. Was happy to share the bottle.

Thick dark red body with a sweet desert cherries, ripe fruit and vinous alcohol. Flavor is sweet cherry, cherry stone/almond, hint of wood, some alcohol and slightly harsh bitterness. Well balanced body and aftertaste of sweet cherries, some red wine and bitter cherry stone. I love this beer!!

Draught 500ml not bottled in the Delirium bar in Brussels. A big surprise in taste because I thought I would taste more alcohol being at 8 degrees. Super

GuideDogSaint (1319) - Xiamen, CHINA - MAR 10, 2017
330ml bottle at OnLYou, Jimei. Pours hazy ruby red with a pinkish head. Aroma of cherry. Not really sweet, not really sour. Drinkable but no excitement.

Beer5000 (6328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 6, 2017
330 ml bottle @ Becks Brasserie & Bar Tnsberg. Unclear dark red body with a small film of pink head that fades quickly. Aroma of sweet desert cherries, ripe fruit and vinous alcohol. Flavor is sweet cherry, cherry stone/almond, hint of wood, some alcohol and slightly harsh bitterness. Well balanced body and aftertaste of sweet cherries, some red wine and bitter cherry stone. Not bad for a sweet fruit beer, but feels a bit messy. Might be better with some kind of food pairing.
