jsporrer (806) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours a cloudy deep ruby red with a thin pink ring. Aroma is strong cherry similar to Twizzlers cherry licorice nibs. Taste is very strong, sweet and tart cherry which coats the tongue and last for awhile. Texture is lightly syrupy with a creamy body. Smooth finish with a nice lingering aftertaste. Might be a tad too sweet to drink often but very flavorful and enjoyable.

hopscotch (10708) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle... Treasure Coast Beer Festival 2016... Pours clear and dark ruby with a small off-white head. The aroma features a big-time cherry component. Medium-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor features tons of cherries and malty sweetness, but isnt at all cloying. Delicious.

Livendadream (202) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Btl, pours a deep dark auburn color with ruby highlights. Pink head is huge and billowing with small tight bubbles that linger yet leaves strands of thick lace on glass. Aromas of cherries, vinegar and laffy taffy.Tastes of sweet black cherries and tart choke cherries. Medium body, effervescent like carbonation, smooth,syrup like mouthfeel and a tongue tingling finish. I find this ale very sweet, but the sourness rounds it out nicely. The cherry flavor seems very natural to me. This is probably why I find it very refreshing. I have know idea why this gets such low scores. As usual another beautiful Belgian ale!

PorterPounder (7544) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl - Market Square Liquors - 330 ml bottle. Deep, dark, ruby red pour, sticky bone colored head that has a nice remnant of lacing. Heavy fragrant aroma of sour cherries, light vinegar sourness. Bold flavor, solid wild cherry sourness, some Sweet Tarts candy, a brief hint of vinegar. Good puckering sourness. Pleasantly textured mouthfeel. Pretty solid in my opinion, sits just right,

rayaron (1489) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - SEP 24, 2016
Draught sample at BEERS 2016. Deep red with reddish head. The aroma has notes of cherry, artificial and syrupy. Very sweet flavor with notes of artificial cherry syrup, paint, vinegar and lemon, sour finish. Light to medium-bodied.

thewolf (12189) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle, [email protected] Pours deep opaque red with a brownish undertone. Fine, staying, beige-pink head. Aroma has lots of cherry, kinda sweet, quite a bit of almonds, softly vinious. Medium, lively carbonation, fine light dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour has good sweet cherries, almonds, soft fruity tartness, sugars, softly warming finish. Actually alright and feels very fresh.

gingertipple (16) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 4, 2016
I am a great fan of Verhaeghes beers and was excited about tasting this one. The look was great. The smell had a clearly sweet cherry overtone. The conflicting flavors of the sour brown base with sweet cherry did not come together. I experienced a similar problem when making my ginger kriek.

JefVerstraete (3009) - Oosterzele, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2016
Bottle @ Den Hert, Vichte. Pink red colour, pink foam. Overwelming aroma of cherry candy, sugar and artificial sweeteners. Very very sweet, sugar is burning in your teeth. Not good at all.

Shag (2848) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - AUG 7, 2016
Poured a brown color with a white head. The aroma is sweet cherries. The flavor is OMG sweet cherries. There is some caramel in there but mostly OMG cherries. Its not too sour or sweet. Its just wait for it OMG cherries. Kidding aside I love this beer! I dont get the low-ish ratings its about perfect between a fruit beer and an oud bruin.
