Hamirubi (370) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - NOV 22, 2015
15cl sample at the Ghent Beer Festival VI (22 VIII 2015), as "Het Anker Boscoli". This two weeks lagered fruit beer of 3.5% volume is made with a white ale basis and enriched with natural fruit juice. A pink-purple-red brew, with lots of gloom and a swift colourful collar. The nose is full of blue berries and forest fruits, raspberries and rose hips. The taste is not that bad: Sweet and with medium carbonation. It makes me think of a fruity soda water - yet the base for this brew is a wheat beer - or an artificial lemonade beer.

33 cl bottle @ Cambrinus, Bruges as "Anker Boscoli." BBE 11.12.2015. Aroma is musty with cherry juice and fruit sugar. Also mild gastric acid tones. Flavour has sweet berry juice, mild malty notes and sugar. Also mild grapefruit juice. Sweet all the way.

Martinus (4285) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
Ruby red colour, amber hue, pinkish head. Fruity aroma, raspberry, sweet cherry, strawberry, bread dough. Sweet flavour, fruit syrup, ranja, cherry lemonade. Sweet fruity finish, cherry lemonade, light raspberry, some citric acid. One of the better cherry lemonades I have tasted recently. Truth be told, probably the only cherry lemonade I have drunk in the last five years or more. But it did make me think I should buy some cherry lemonade again, I loved that shit as a child.
(from 33cL bottle @ home)

PapaVillum (738) - Valby, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2015
33 cl/330 ml, flaske, 3,5 % ABV, BB 14/11/14, købt i Den Belgiske Ølbutik i Vanløse, 21. februar 2015. Rødlig ufiltreret belgisk frugtøl med 5 cm stor sart rosa skumtop, som svinder til gardiner og knap en cm efter en halv snes minutter. Frugtrig aroma af hindbær og eventuelt andre bær. Smagen er meget mild af søde bær, men som følgesvend er der også en særegen bitterhed tilstede. Medium sødme og let bitterhed samt en anelse sur smag. Let krop med en medium karbonering og en tynd til olieret konsistens. Udmærket frugtøl med ganske fin smag.

@Mechelen, @Brouwerij het Anker, proeverij met nu de carolus, Het voordeel van zo’n proeverij met meerdere bieren is dat je ze héél mooi met elkaar kunt vergelijken, Hoe kan het ook anders maar dit biertje scoort een 10 op aroma, heerlijk die fruitigheid van framboos en kers. echter bleef deze hoge score alleen wat bij het aroma, de snaken zijn gebaseerd op een witbier en dan flink wat vruchtensappen.....dat val even tegen zeg,. Aardig vrouwenbiertje zeg ik zo, die van mij vond het iig wel aardig, niet één van de beteren maar aardig. nou dat krijgt het ook een aardig cijfer denk ik zo.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle @ Le Trappiste, Altrincham. Very deep raspberry-red, clear with an active carbonation. This Belgian beer is extremely fruity, with both the blackcurrant and raspberry sharing equal prominence in both aroma and taste. It’s very berry sweet because of this dominance but superb for it and lingers in the palate. Has a slightly sour aftertaste.

Lekker fruitig biertje, te vergelijken met Liefmans. Echt een aanrader voor in de zomer eens te drinken
