GoufCustom (1533) - HONG KONG - APR 5, 2014

330 ml bottle bought at Craftissmo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.

Translucent dull ruby red colour with faint trace of yeast particles; Three-quarter finger head and off-pink foam which lasts for about 90 seconds; Very good sticky lacing with near zero carbonation; Quite fragrant aroma of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, sugar, malt and light yeast; Close to light sweet taste of light malt, with raspberry juice, strawberry, cherry, carbonated soda, light molasses, light yeast, and faint sparkling wine; Light body, thin palate; Mouth feel is largely raspberry, cherry and strawberry juice - light and refreshing - with barely a touch of sweetness. Malt and winey taste can be felt but really doesn’t feel like a beer, more like a berry fruit cocktail… Hoppiness is only very faint grass aroma. No bitterness, just light malty fruit juice finish; Slightly dry after taste, extremely easy to mouth.

Comments: So, is beer brewed with coulis (mixed fruit puree) a good idea? I think this one is rather poorly-executed: the fruit juice part is pretty nice, fruity, refreshing and very low sweetness, but the light beer base just can’t pick it up to impress. Should a Lambic-base was used, the result could be pretty exciting. For now, this is just an inoffensive ‘Meh’.

thanatosti (1436) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - MAR 14, 2014
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Red with a large pink head. Red fruits in the aroma: cherries, strawberries, raspberries. Taste is sweetish but with a sour aftertaste. Not as sweet as kriek lambieks and the like. More of a Belgian white with fruits. Not bad for a fruit beer.

Interesting aftertaste of fruit and a little grass. There is slight sour note which lifts this beer marginally above others. Definitely a beer I would finish, but still a little too artificial.

Nice head, tastes a little sour. Smells like fruit soda but not a nice color.
