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.

Köpt i öl- automat på ett hostel någonstans utanför Brugge. Mörkt, vinröd med lätt smutsvit skumkrona. Doft av söt, mustig hallon. Smak detsamma.

Heldere amber-roodbruin bier met een roze schuimkraag. Aroma: zoete taart framboos, tarwe, licht mout, azijn. Smaak: matig zoet, matig scherp, licht bitter. Mondgevoel: gemiddeld met gematigde koolzuur en verrassende afdronk. Zalig bier!

Bottle thanks to Gibson. Pours a dark brown with medium off white head that lasts. The aroma is berry jam, funk, oak. Thick, jammy, nice tartness, low acidity, good.

beer-yum (1263) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 18, 2016
Restrained cherry candy aroma in a red tinted black pour. Lovely balance between the tart and the sweet makes this an excellent example of the style (and shows why the Belgians are considered the masters).

Mesjasz (873) - Lodz, POLAND - APR 20, 2016
Butelka. Miedziano czerwony kolor, spora piana koloru écru. Aromat słodkich malin, wręcz dżemu. Smak słodki, lekko kwaśny i wytrawny. W smaku maliny, trochę wiśni. Piwo jest dosyć płytkie, jednostajne, z męcząca słodyczą. Raczej do ominięcia.

LazyPyro (484) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 375ml bottle, nicely wrapped and presented. Pours a clear deep red-brown colour, with a small rapidly disappearing pinkish head. Aroma is sweet and of real raspberries. Likewise the taste is also sweet raspberries, some malt, light sourness, with an acidic tart finish. Not too sweet either. Really nice.
