RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Pours dark red with a small pink-beige head. Aroma is dominated by sweet cherries and cough medicine with some earth, leaves, and a slightly mustardy yeast note (which I was cut through the fruit more). Flavor begins very sweet as well with a fruitiness that just seems like Cherry flavored Dimetapp to me, along with a little bit of yeast character and earth attempting to balance things. Fairly light bodied and spritzy, but the flavor is potent. Eh, I’m not a fan and am uninspired to type more.

awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2009
Tap at FFF. Pours clear dark ruby with bubbly pink head (how cute, now someone pass me an I.S.). Sweet, clean refreshing cheer jollyrancher taste with very slight sour backing. Interesting, seems like a dessert. Light and drinkable.

Dark, almost blood, red. Hints of red in the head. VERY heavy on the cherry. I liked it at first, but as it got close to the end I thought I was drinking cherry Nyquil. I wish they had focused more on the sour quality of cherries rather than their sweetness.

Bottle poured into a tulip. Dark cranberry color with small pink frothy head that dissipates fully. Aroma of strong dark cherries, syrup. Taste is slightly tart, mostly sweet and syrupy, with slight alcohol finish. Smooth and soft carbonation. Pretty good!

jjuf1853 (1302) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2009
Bottle pours a dark reddish brown color with a thin head. Aroma is dominated by cherries with just a touch of woodiness. Flavor is sweet at first but then followed by nice contrasting sour notes. Taste reminds me of Ludens cherry cough drops. Slight warmth from the alcohol, but otherwise you’d never guess it was 8%.

3.2
Bontus (800) - Flanders, BELGIUM - OCT 18, 2009
Bottle. Pours dark red, near brownish. Not lasting pink head. Very cherry aroma. Sweet sourish flavor but predominantly sweet. Finish was a bit short. Still very drinkable, ABV well hidden.

3.7
Parket (586) - Bruges, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2009
bottle, dark reddish colour with pink and unstable head. Sweet and cherry smell, also a smell from oak wood. Taste: real krieken as you would eat them freshly and ripe picked from a tree, very sweet, alcohol, wood. Totally not my style of beer but in its style a real topper!

3.2
rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2009
330ml bottle, dark mahogany, ruby color,with a pinkyish head, sweet fruity cherryish cough syrup nose, with a marzipan, almondy paste accent, with a hint of blackberries and brown sugar sweetness in the aroma follows thorugh on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet black cherry, cough syrup character with a kind of artificial sweetness, with a faint black chocolate and cherry candy lolipop flavor, leading towards a sweet candyish cherry fruity finish.

3.9
madvike (3260) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2009
Tap @ The Malt House - Pours a beautiful ruby red with a light pink head. Smells like a mix of real cherries and cherry cough drops. Just a little too artificial, but still smells tasty. The taste is more authentic. It’s all deep, dark black cherries that taste almost like they’re fermenting. They’re overripe with deep sourness and brandy sweetness intermingling on the finish. It’s way too sweet to be anything more than a desserty sipper, but the richness makes it almost like a dessert unto itself. A fantastic, unexpected experience, and one I’d like to have again.
