2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml clear glass bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
Sweet jammy buttery aroma. Some grains makes me connfuse this for toast for breakfast. Adequate beeriness, and not spoilt too much by the juicy fruitiness. A touch of karpalo (cranberry) and black grape. Even some roastiness in laces. Simple and smooth, and a bit emasculated, but not as bad as I expected from the Greede Kerching stable. Looked good, but I fined them for the clear glass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (500ml, £1.12 from Tesco):
Pale amber with a 2 finger white fluffy head that lasts throughout.
A mix of sweet butterscotc, summer fruits (raspberry, cherry) & faint floral hops aroma at the end.
Spicy hops & the fruit from the nose make up the taste. More of a bitter than fruit beer. There is also a malty, biscuit like taste around the middle & the finish is moderately bitter.
A smooth beer but the body was a little thin if anything & too light. The finish quite dry & bitter but not overly disappointing.
Not what I was expecting at all from this beer judging by the label, I naturally thought I’d be getting a fruit beer but at least this one was drinkable, if not good.rather than a bitter going by the name but I’m actually glad as some of the fruit beers I’ve tried in the past have been downright awful, this was at least drinkable.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml bottle. Finland.
Clear deep golden colour with tiny off-white head.
Mild fruit and berry aroma with malt. It’s like müsli with red berries.
Some hoppy bitterness, sweet berry/fruity juice and grainy malt in flavour. Berries get just annoying.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours amber with a lot of bubbles inside and a large, white head. Aroma is strongly caramel, a hint of floral hops. Taste is caramel with some floral hops on the finish. Hints of strawberry and raspberry in the aftertaste. Palate is very carbonated and not too light. Alright, but nothing special. Surprisingly enjoyable and sessionable. Can’t really find the fruits of the name or the berries of the label in the aroma or taste though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Rated @ 25.6.2011.
Pours a copper colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of raspberries, blackcurrant, hay and some malts. Flavour of malts, caramel, sweet raspberries, blackcurrant and cardboard. Medium bodied with rough carbonation and a finish of dry malts and some grass. Summery and it would be neat to try the cask version.
