Alengrin (4439) - BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2014
Rocs’ fruit beer with off-white, creamy head and darkish ’dirty’ purple colour with ruby hue. Lots of blackcurrant jam and crème de cassis in the nose, but complex, with hints of fig, brambleberry, yoghurt, liqueur and caramel. Fruity taste dominated by the blackcurrant, sweetish and spicy, fresh acidity but subtle, not sugary, honest and refreshing. I’m not the greatest fan of fruit beers but when this brewery does it, it turns out quite good - and I hadn’t expected anything less.

Deep red amber colour, white head. Aroma of malts, quite herbal, light liquorice, white wine. Sweet flavour, herbal, mint, light sour white wine, blackcurrent skins. Finish white wine, sour notes, malts, liquorice, aged notes. Nice, held up quite well.

sebletitje (9073) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 19, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de et partagée avec Tderoeck. Anno 2010. Cuivrée, col blanc fin. Arôme est fruité oscillant entre pêche, abricot et qcq notes surettes sur un bouquet lactique avec ce côté cassis. Palais est léger pointe surette voire aigrelet, fruité est épais avec un fini levure. Le tout restitue ce côté cassis et une bière agréable malgré son age sans pour cela apparaitre comme infectée. A un petite côté Orval’esque qu niveau de la levure.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2013 One of the few non-lambic fruit beers that isn’t detestingly sweet. Body is a witbier, with black and red fruits. Nice sour notes.

Pinball (11918) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 18, 2011
bottle from beerplanet.eu clear brown, smooth large offwhite head. boozy and fruity aroma. fruits are blackurrant. The rather high alc. percentage makes the fruit aroma come out as bittersweet. Flavor is very fruity bitter, with a red fruity and rather fresh background, alc. and malts. very fruity brew. alc. can be tasted. The fruity bitterness and fresh fruity almost citrussy notes help a lot, but still i don’t really like the beer. too bittersweet.

RichardGretton (4627) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2010
Bottle. Muddy brown beer with a strong head. The aroma is fruity and musty, and the flavour is strongly black currant with a sour, burn’t to a degree and bitter finish. Overall an average beer.

Bottle 330ml.
Clear medium red purple amber color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white light red - purple head. Aroma is moderate to light light heavy malty, toasted, berry, cassis, moderate yeasty, light soapy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate acidic with a average to long duration, rebena and a dry finish. Body is light to medium, texture is watery to oily, carbonation is soft. Becomes better and better the you drink off it. [20091002]

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2009
Muddy amber to brown color; generous head. Minty and fruity aroma. Ordinary average beer (average malt and sugars), with citrusy fruits, some sourness. Difficult to find a point here.
