DraftDodger (1855) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2018
Copenhagen 14/2-2018. 75 cl bottle from Meny. Usual label with a bilding that looks more like a house than a Castle. Pours - not surprisingly - very dark red with small pink head. Very bubbly. Settles as very thin, unsteady, patchy layer of foam. No lacing. Aroma is practically like a dessert. It practically reeks of sweet, sugary cherry. Vanilla, marzipan and some very subdued sour notes. Strong carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is heavy sweet. Followed by medium tart sourness. Almost drown in the sweet cherry ocean. Aftertaste is sugar sweet with some tart notes. Finish is pure cherry. Kind of strange concept to mix a perfectly decent Belgian Brown Ale with Cherry Liquor. I would prefer to drink it straight - and forget about the Cherry Liquor. But if you are in need of a Boozy dessert it really is not so bad.

Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep ruby pour, thin off-white layer on top. Good lacing. Very pleasant nose, refreshing combination of sour cherry, caramel and candy. Thin body, medium at best. Medium but lively carbonation, light texture. Refreshingly sour taste with very subtle bitternes towards the finish. Aroma of sour cherries, sugar, candy and caramel. Simple but nicely executed. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Short to medium finish, sour and mildly bitter. Overall, pretty good. Tasty and refreshing. Also quite deceiving - 8% ABV is hardly noticeable. Very good fruit beer.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2018 Biere très bonne. Beaucoup de goût , certain trouveraient même qu'elle en a un gout trop médicamenteux. Mais elle est juste délicieuse. En pression c'est un must, la bouteille perd un peu ...

Bottle - Darkish red with large pink head. Strong cherry and berry aroma - just not to my liking. Ok mouthfeel. Taste - very sweet lots of cherries again just not to my liking. Wrong type of beer for me.

UPDATED: FEB 1, 2018 Pivo u flaši. To je jedino Voćno pivo koje sam do sada pio i baš mi je fino. Miris višnje sa istim okusom, dosta kiselkast i osvježavajuć. Fino pivo za ljeto. Samo oprez 8% alkohola nije malo!

Benters (155) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2018
Pours a clear cherry colour with no real head and a very gentle carbonation sparkle. Aroma is of sweet and sour cherries, some almonds. Taste is dominated by cherries, very rich and sweet with a slight tartness at the finish and gently warming thanks to the high alcohol content. The carbonation sparkle helps add refreshment, so even though it’s very sweet it’s not cloying. Pleasant fruit beer.

It is a very good beer. If you are in the mood for something sweet & cherry this is the best! I am not a fan of this types of beer, but I reccoment it. Nice cherry-colored body and very carbonated, almost no head. All of aroma you can feel is cherry. It hides very well the 8% ABV, you cannot feel it. Medium aftertaste, quite refreshing beer.

Édes mint a kurvaélet. Megjelenésre a többi tecsós cucc között kimagasló. Meglepődtem, hogy ízesített valami, mert nem olvastam el a címkét ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
