Nice pink color with light pink head. Sweet, kind of artificial cherry aroma. Taste starts with artificial cherry sweetness and gets worse with some weird, stale note. Pretty light body with good carbonation. Not really my type, wouldn’t buy it again. (253 characters)

Small brown bottle (25cl), glad it wasn't a bigger one, nearly couldn't finish this titchy one.

Poured into my La Chouffe tulip glass it looked OK, a reddy brown, clear and bright body with a big, light pink foaming head. The head fell to a wispy covering a bit to quickly for my likeing, but first impressions were fine.

The aroma was of sweet cherries and almonds, in fact a Bakewell Tart sort of smell, interesting if not overaly beery.

Oh dear, it tasted like it smelled, a sweet cherry alco-pop. It was a thin watered down syrup and one for the kids or ladies who like a sicky drink.

The beer got worse as it warmed, I started to look for excuses to lower my original scores. It was almost undrinkable towards the end. It did however look and smell worth the effort, so my scores didn't alter, many on here wouldn't be so kind, I feel. (844 characters)

Colored grenadine beer aroma of cherry juice box marked sickening limit, which suggest by their saturation, biscuit and almond. Although slightly sweet and slightly tart, the attack is also very powerful in cherry juice and taste for beer is almost nonexistent. While refreshing, this beer is nevertheless very disgusting. (322 characters)

BB 06-06-06. Nice pink head and a clear redbrown beer. Nose is very much cherries and sweet. Not much else to detect. Taste is also cherrie and a lot of sweetness. This has nothing to do with beer but is actually better then most other examples I tasted. Can imagine some people liking this and I could even drink this on a warm day in the sun icecold. (352 characters)

Presentation: Sampled at the Super Des Fagnes Brewpub in Mariembourg on April 16th during the recent Easter Trip to Belgium. Served from the tap into a Super Des Fagnes glass goblet. Listed as “Aux Griottes 4.8%”, cost €2.

Appearance: Dark purple red body with a nicely laced pink head. High levels of carbonation. Looks good in the glass.

Smell: Medicinal cherries with some feint whiffs of SuperGlue. Sweet but not sickly, the cherries have a lot of cough syrup traits to the odors.

Taste: Awful sour cherry start, aluminium middle and a dry, yet sweet finish. Very artificial and incredibly unpleasant. Drinks like a poorly brewed blonde ale with a small amount of old cherry juice added.

Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy with lots of metallic twists. Watery body with a hint of cherries to at least add something to the experience.

Drinkability: Managed to finish it, but I was quite thirsty by the time we got here.

Overall: Just Awful. *Avoid* (964 characters)
