Nice fruity beer. Actually not a big fan of them, but this one goes down nicely. Although i liked the cherry version even more from Bacchus.

Trappist1 (558) - Diest, BELGIUM - DEC 15, 2014
Brown reddish color with a beige head, disappearing. Nose:fruity nose, cherries, wood. Taste:cherry, bit if wood. Lacks some punch, sweet finish, candy. Feels more like a sweetish Kriek than an old bruin. Still decent, ok

VamboladeTolly (227) - Tartu, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Pours hazy reddish brown almost no head. Aroma is sweet like rassberry gem. Taste is sour and sweet, with some spicyness, dry, rassberry scnaps. Interesting but not mine kind of beer.

Hanoi (457) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2014
From notes. Nose is raspberry and sugar, slight back note from the sour base beer. Taste is raspberry juice, leading to sugar and then green apple from the sour beer. The interesting base beer makes it a step up from an Alcopop, but it’s still a beer for people who don’t have a palate.
