12 oz into flute. Nice raspberry red/purple; clear with little visible carbonation and a great, very light pink head. Tart and sweet cherries and sugar (like cherry candy) and earth aroma. Flavor is like a sour jolly rancher with just a hint of alcohol and earthyness. Good and refreshing, although a bit too sweet to have more than 1 in a row. Smooth and brief on the palate with little carbonation and little to no finish. Overall: great refreshing sweet and sour fruity brew.

Strong cherry aroma as the bottle is opened. This is a strong flavored sipping beer. Of course, its flavor is a strong cherry. A nice sipping after dinner type of beer.

Poured a beautiful Ruby red with thick, reddish head. Nice aroma of cherries. Flavour was nice and sweet but balanced. A superior brew.

35.5 cL bottle. Pours dark redish towards murky with a lacing faint pink head. Light sulphorish dry cherry aroma. Flavour starts extremely sweet cherry flavoured and gains a solid acidic to citric touch along the way. Solid cherry flavour with a mild cripsy mouthfeel. Ends with a lingering cherry aroma reaching the back of the nose. Nice for what it is.

pours dark red with a nice one finger fluffy purple head. aroma is sweet and tart cherries with a little malt. has a medium body with descent lacing and good carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma but stronger. it has a little beer taste to it at the end and in the aftertaste. i think it is good and better than what the percentile is at.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - APR 2, 2008
Smells very sweet, almost un-inviting. Cherry and sugar cane. Pours literally the colour of plump ripe cherries, got that spot on. A blast of sugar indeed, almost too much for a beer. I wanted more pure cherry flavour instead. The malt does add a nice backdrop.
Light and not to thick in the mouth, despite the sugary profile.

Foam Rangers tasting. Red pour with nice head. Nose of cherry, cherry and cherry. Taste is tart cherry with nice finish and good carbonation.

Very surprizing. I tohught I was good to hate this. Thought it was going to taste like cough syrup. I was wrong. Dark reddish hue with an exceptional cherry aroma. Flavor ais unmatched but acl is low....loses points for that.

Not bad for a cherry lambic. sweet and tart wtih a nice head. Enjoyable at the end of a dinner or night of drinking.

3.4
pintbypint (3864) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 21, 2008
355ml brown bottle. Cherry red pour with a small pink head which recedes quickly. Cherry is up front in the aroma, not detecting much else, though the scent is pleasant, if not a little sweet. Flavour has some immediate cherry fruit sweetness. Finish is slightly sour, acidic with a bit of funkiness lingering. Medium sticky body.
