Bottle: Poured a deep pink color beer with a medium bubbly pink head with average retention. Aroma of cheery syrup is totally dominating but not overly gross and doesn’t have any of the cough medicine flavour that I really hate. Taste is also dominated by the sweetness of the cherry syrup but again doesn’t get to gross and is actually refreshing. While this beer is closer to an alcohol pop then anything else, it is still better then many other gross fruit beer form Belgium.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is very sweet and has a ton of syrupy cherry notes. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of sweet cherries with no real other notes coming through. Very straight forward, but not too bad. Medium mouthfeel and low carbonation. If you like cherries, you may like this beer. If you don't, you won't.

330ml Bottle

Appearance - The beer pours a hazy burgundy/purple colour with a large frothy pink coloured head. I can't tell how much carbonation there is and there is some good lacing running in stages down the sides of the glass. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it began to dissipate.

Smell - Cherries, breads/grains, wheat

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation and it has a slightly syrupy feel to it. It is very sweet tasting and there is a lot of cherry flavour. There are also notes of breads/grains and a bit of a clove flavour. It finishes with a very sweet and tart cherry aftertaste.

Drink - It was worth a try; but it's not my type of thing. I don't think many people would want more than one of these at a sitting, they are very sweet.

On-tap served in a Belgian Kriek chalice at Wine Connection, Bangkok.

The showcase is good by a deep ruby purple hue with decent slight pinkish head crowning enduringly before leaving plenty of splendid lacing patch and spot along the way down. Cherries are all the way round in both aroma and flavor, syrupy sweet, tartly sourish yet same time with some hint of malt. The body is medium and the carbonation is crisp enough to carry all the things well.

This beer is pink, with a pink tanned head.
Smells of cherries, nothing else but cherries, and it tastes like cherries, way to sweet. A littlebit of "beertaste" in it, but i really don't get much past the cherries. It tastes pretty good, kind of like cherry coke, but after a few sips, no matter how good i think it is, it makes me feel like throwing up, and i have a hard time swallowing it.
