carlb (107) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Pours mahogany-red. Brilliantly clear. Tan 1.5 inch head that quickly dissipates to 1/8 inch. tan. The nose has distinct sweet-cherry notes. Moderate-to-light carbonation. Very modest Belgian lace. Medium-light body. Nicely restrained fruit with bitter notes (hops and cherry pits?). The ABV is not evident on the palate. Well-balanced, delicious ale. Lingers pleasantly. Bitter, palate cleansing notes are evident in the finish.

Benters (143) - 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

V skupinovej terapii. Nadherna visnova vona. Krasna tmavo cervena farba. Ruzovkasta pena. A vynikajuca sladkasta visnova chut.

Jabic (735) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Ar: Sugary cherry candy; caramel and juicy fruit; red licorice. Ap: Deep ruby; clear; small, flimsy light tan head with a tinge of pink; subsides into a webby ring of foam. T: Cherry candy; medium-light sweetness; becomes fairly medicinal quickly, particularly when coupled with the alcohol notes; very, very low bitterness and no hop flavor; a bit of artificial vanilla. P: Light body with very high carbonation; dry finish. O: Great smell, but flavor-wise it comes across as very artificial and medicinal.

AtronSeige (1788) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 19, 2017
Aroma: Medium cherries. Light woody Appearance: Brilliant dark red body. Small, reddish-brown head with low retention. Flavour: Medium cherries, Light maltiness. Dry finish with lingering cherries. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Slight astringency. Overall: The cherries have a slight artificial aroma/taste, but it is still a happy flavour/memory. The beer is lost in the cherries and shows in minimal ways. Not a bad beer 330 ml bottle, poured. 29A. Fruit Beer. 26C. Belgian Tripel

Аромат приятный, как будто нюхаешь свежий сок черешни. Цвет очень приятный, темно-красный. Во вкусе чувствуется сок вишни и немного солода. Несмотря на то что это фруктовое пиво ощущается сильная крепость. Послевкусие слишком концентрированное. А также не навязчивый привкус косточки вишни.

tmdaines (187) - Stretford, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2017
A lovely winter drink. Very fruity, delicious cherry, almost like a cordial. Very quaffable for the ABV. Great.
