330 ml bottle poured into a teku.

A- Dark ruby, with some decent clarity. Mildly cloudy. Head tan and dense due to effervescence. Almost creamy. Great lacing.

S- Tart cherry, slight sweetness. Oaky, classic barrel aged aroma. Not much in the depth, but enough to really please the nose.

T- Cherry up front. Sweet almost caramel, backbone of malt. Sweetness overrides the tartness in this one.

M- Body is medium-light. Carbonation tingles the senses nicely. Faint dry-tannin finish.

O- Wonderful. Sweet, tangy, and a textbook example of a wood-aged beer.

Drank this when I was quite thirsty, and it was quite refreshing. Not very beer like but still good. Strong tart cherry flavor.

Pours a strong, >1 finger head of light pink foam, topping a shockingly deep red body.

Very sweet aroma, primarily cherries and raspberries. Light tartness.

Flavor follows: intensely sweet, only slightly tart. Cherries at first, but yielding to raspberries. Overly sweet and syrupy.

Lively and active.

This is a tasty brew, but there's little depth or complexity, no oak, and no funk. It's almost more of a wine cooler than a beer.

Alright beer, more brownish red than red. But had a source cherry cola flavor. Reminded me back in the day when I was a kid and the waitress would tell me they didn't have cherry coke but instead took grenadine and marishano cherries with coke and made a cherry coke except these marishano cherries were more tart. But for a beer it's not exactly something I want.

The beer is extremely dark red/brown, thin head but it was lasting. The smell was all cherries. The taste was also strongly cherry. It almost had a cherry cola type of flavor to it but instead of being sweet it was sour. The beer is overall good just struck me a little strong at first.

Great cherry nose, but authentic cherry not cherry flavored. The finish raw cherry and refreshing. Not very sour, but a great mix of sour and fruity. Rich dark cherry-brown color and decent lacing. Almost no foam when poured. Relatively low abv, easy drinking and very pleasant.

Pours a clear red color. 5/4 inch head of an off-pink color. Great retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong cherry, Belgian yeast, sweet malt, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of a Flanders Oud Bruin. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level and slight dryness. Tastes of strong cherry, Belgian yeast, sweet malt, slight alcohol, and a hint of hop. Overall, cherry overwhelms, lacking in complexity, and average at best.

I couldn't find any Delirium Red, so I thought I might give this one a try.

Poured with a 1/4-1/2in. head, beautifully deep red-brown. At the usual serving temperature, you're greeted by an extremely complex--almost dissonant--flavor. Cherry, some sort of licorice flavor, mild sour notes, molasses, and massively malty. Slows you down like magic with all the flavors and the 8.5%ABV. The aftertaste lingers pleasantly, like after taking a shot of what a bachelorette party had dialed up. Warm, sweet, numb, light.

Try it on a sunny holiday afternoon.

I had picked this up an apparently did not look at it carefully. I not much into sours, and though not a true sour it does help with getting into the style...

A very nice rich, red mahogany color that produces a thin reddish foam with little staying power but decent lacing. The smell is rich in cherries with a lightly tart tang to the nose. Mouthfeel was heavy on the carbonation and somewhere between medium- and light-bodied. I enjoyed it from a pure drinking experience, but I was not necessarily impressed from a purist sense - it tasted more like a sour Cherry Coke. But then again, from the overall, it was definitely different, unique, and kinda fun to drink.

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. Playing Verde Station. Lots of cherries here, in nose & mouth, not much dubbel character. Good body. Fine but seems more a refreshment than a beer. Abv well hidden
