Anker (723) - Hillerød, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy orange-red with a huge off white head with a pink glow. Aroma is raspberries and peach with notes of cherries, blackberries and strawberries. Flavour is like thin fruit syrup, but also a little sour and dry, ending in a tart aftertaste. Even though it has a huge head, it feels flat on the palate.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle at Chaucer’s Pub in London, ON- Hazy rusty red pour unleashes a frothy pink cap. Good retention, leaves good lace. On the nose, fresh strawberry, blackberry, some currant, and funky yeast. Tastes of sweet berries, sour,funky yeast, a bit of straw. Strange, but enjoyable in moderation. Medium body. Finishes sweet, a bit tart, with no trace of the ABV. Good.

Amber beer with huge creamy head. The aroma is full of berries The flavor is also very fruity with a bit of dry finish, but very sweet beer.

heavy (2773) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 28, 2008
21/11 0.33 l bottle @ Hopdevil, Zagreb. This poured red, murky body with medium head. fine wildberries aroma, a bit cheesy though. Flavor is quite similar, sweet to sourish berries, plums and other fruits, but no real beer felt. Pleasant and definitely refreshing, alcohol is not felt at all, maybe just a little bit in aroma in some medicinal way, but simply I can’t like fruit beers when they don’t have any beer character. Like drinking a good fruit juice.

surprised this has such bad ratings, not the best fruit beer ive had but not the worst by farkinda an orange color, sweet fruity smell almost like fruit punch, flavor is similar with a bit of a tart finish, kinda "jammy" i actually kinda like it.
