Pours very dark ruby, shiny only towards the light, with one finger white-pinkish head, quick to a frothy.
Lots of cherry in the smell, a bit of unwanted sweetener too, a faint sourness, some amaretto, ok.
Lots of sweet cherry, a bit syrupy at first, then a bit crisp, then a tiny bit sour in the finish. Some cherry pit and marzipan spices in there too. A bit of sweet fluffy maltiness, wheaty, reminding of sponge cake. Finishes sweet, with a very faint green bitter note.
Medium body and carbonation. Lingering sugars in the aftertaste and the obvious cherry.
Better than other Belgian cherry beers (the artificially enhanced ones), but nothing as fancy as the bottle is.

Belgian cherry beer, classic, covered in a fancy paper, looks posh. Really dark pinky reflects, doesn't smell much a bit of fruits, lots of foam, that's good. Very tasty, cherries, strawberries, raspberries... So fruity and juicy. Sticky and acid in the mouthfeel. It was a good experience to try it, I would recomend it, a very good flavoured brew.

Slightly cloudy red colour. Small off white head. Good head retention.

Clearly artificial sweetener on the nose followed by jammy cherry. Slightly tart. Not bad.

Again the flavour is artificial but it works. Sweet cherry with some tartness and touches of funk. Quite simple but enjoyable.

Medium body with moderate carbonation.

A good but unexceptional beer. Nice tartness but the obvious artificial character detracts.

Intense red color with an offwhite pink and thick head with good retention and leaving laces.
Strong sour and cherry aroma.
Surprisingly nice, elegant sweet and sour taste with a decent amount of cherries. Mildly bitter, fruity and dry aftertaste.
Light body with good carbonation, a bit salty.
Interestingly it has all main taste sensations, salt, sweet, sour and bitter. Good for a change and if your soul mate does not dig beer, this is an easy entry opportunity.

Deep raspberry red colour topped with a pinkish white head that is part foamy, part bubbly in texture and with average retention.

A sweet cherry and raspberry smell to it straight away followed by a fair amount of sugar but nothing excessive.

Huge amount of cherry flavour to begin with and to be honest, not a whole lot more than that. The cherry dominates the taste department without coming across as too sickening.

Smooth with a lot of carbonation and as a result a bit of fizz to the drink as well. It is light to medium bodied with a very sweet, sugary feel to it.

Nice and sweet with a huge amount of cherries both in the taste and the smell without overdoing it too much. I found this one a lot more enjoyable an some of the other fruit beers I have rated previously.
