Ruby color. Med carbonation. Smells like cherries and booze. No hop aroma. Very sweet start. Tart finish. Some caramel malt flavor. Rich. Cherry tartness grounds it, keeps it from being too sweet. Med+ body. Ok in the right circumstances, but theres no elegance to this cherry bomb.

Blueshawk (465) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- dunkle braun-rote Farbe mit guter, schnell zerfallender Schaumbildung - Aromen nach Sauerkirsch, Holunder, Marzipan und etwas Holz - die Carbonisierung ist mir eine Idee zu hoch - der Antrunk ist extrem suerlich, allerdings ohne ins Unangenehme abzugleiten - eine leichte Knstlichkeit kann das Getrnk allerdings nicht verleugnen - der Abgang fgt dann noch eine leichte Bitterkeit hinzu Fazit: Ein gutes Kirschbier. Zu einem sehr guten fehlt allerdings eine gewisse Natrlichkeit

Red. No head. Smells and tastes like glace cherries, plastic and perfume. Awful.

In Darma Bar in northern Israel. Pour from bottle. A cherry bomb on the nose. Taste is also slightly sour cherry. Can't see myself having more than one at a time, but kinda like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bue 1 an et demi avant DLC en Dorfogne avec JM, Manou et Thomas. Biere rougeatre, brune a tres forte carbo. Pas de col de mousse. Arome cerise tres fort. Enbiuche, cremeuse, sucree. Final cerise, caramel sans amertume. Tres ressembkante a une kriek mais sans lacidite. Bien aime !

cervmagpt (736) - PORTUGAL - AUG 17, 2016
Review based on the BJCP2015 style guidelines (style 29A/26D). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 1029A. AROMA: predominant with medium-high intensity aroma of artifical cherry syrup. APPEARANCE: dark ruby color and clear. medium pink head with low retention. TASTE: high cherry syrup flavor with an artificial character, masking the underlying base beer. medium sweet background. finishes semi-dry. PALATE: medium-low body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a beer that resembles cherry syrup.

UPDATED: AUG 24, 2016 A classic that has lost nothing of its old glory. Cherry aroma, lovely taste, good mouthfeel and great aftertaste. Maybe a bit too cherry-ish for me, but for now and then: great.

MPA (983) - Amager (form. Nrrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 12, 2016
Bottle. Reddish brown with a quite large off white head which has a slight pink colouring. Not a long living head though. Cherry aroma with notes of marzipan. Sweet cherry flavour with a nice tart finish. For fans of cherry this is pretty good.

ulrikolsen (566) - DENMARK - AUG 10, 2016
Bottle. Pours deep red brown with beige head. This is a cherry beer with aroma of cherries and only slightly malty, and taste... cherries! Notes of malt comes through in the end though. Balance is very pleasant sour and sweet and dry.

Quite a different taste from your normal beers. Fruity is an understatement. Nevertheless, it has a good mix of beer and cherry liquer.
