kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, - MAR 30, 2013
Deep red color, fluffy head. Smells cherries. Taste is over the top sweet, which somehow had artificial clang, e.g., plain sugar. Usual sourness of lambic is missing, pity. Minding these faults this is roughly ok beer, but nothing more. The only reason to have the belgian cherry is that there ain’t much similar beers in supermarkets at London.

Pours ruby, fizzy, with a small pink head and sticky lacing. Aroma of cherry syrup. Taste... well it tastes good as a cherry drink, cherry syrup and fresh cherry, but I can’t really find any beer character in it. Not overly sweet, light body, creamy, fizzy, long finish. Drinkable.

Bottle from Marks and Spencer. Pinky purple with a tight pink head. The scent is of cherry soda, grape juice, sangria. Mild sweet taste with a little bit of a fruity twang. Touch of soap. Inoffensive palate. Not very carbonated. It’s ok but doesn’t really do it for me I am afraid. I want more... something.

Bottle from M&S. Medium quickly disappearing reddish head, cherry/red colour, lightly hazy. Aroma of cherries, just like kriek. Tart/sour taste with sweet aftertaste. Light body, fizzy. Just like kriek.

Bottle. Cherry Red in colour. Cherry aroma. Very Fruity; very cherry fruity; hint of zesty orange. Sweet with fizzy carbonation. Slight fruity sourness. Refreshing. Light. Easy to drink. (2010-02)

Bottle at home in London - picked up at the M&S in Paddington, I think, coincidentally enough. Pours a luscious, deep pink-purple with a creamy white head. Lots of cherry juice in the aroma, and little else. Medium sweet flavor, with lots of liquefied cherry Jolly Ranchers, a little tartness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet with just a vague hint of cherry skin bitterness, lots more sugary cherry candy, concentrated cherry juice. This is pretty much just cherry soda. I do enjoy it, though, and hate myself a little bit for that.

Next time I want a sour cherry juice with a healthy dash of beer I know where to come. It tastes good but it’s dominated by the cherry juice. Not sure it’s a beer at all.

2.8
rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Bottle at Chris and Ruth’s place in London. Clear reddish beer with a small offwhite head. Sweet cherry aroma, cherry seeds, sugary, some grapes. Sugary cherry flavor, very sweet and not that refreshing.

2.9
yespr (45412) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 11, 2015
33 cl bottle. Pours red with a fully gone head. Aroma is cherry, almondish. Citric, smooth almondish and sweet to citric cherry. Candy. Sweet finish.

3.3
Johnstledger8 (1190) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours pinkish red with a pink non lasting bubbly white head. Aroma of sweet cherries, taste is the same not much else going on but very enjoyable. Not overpowering at all, really refreshing.
