pintbypint (2882) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JUL 24, 2004
Sampled from 500ml brown bottle. This beer had a very light sugary aroma of red fruit (strawbery and raspberry). It was copper coloured with a white head. It had a brief sweet start (again red fruit) and then gets into some light malt flavour and ends kind of bitter. I let it warm up a bit and a bit more malt and fruit flavouring came through. The label shows a variety of field berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries and strawberries) but I really don’t detect very much fruit at all. In fact the ingredients list "fruit flavouring". Overall, a touch to much bitterness and not enough fruit character.

0,5L bottle. Pours clear amber-copper with off-white head. Aroma is sweet some British hops, caramel. Flavor is very sweet, caramel, fruit syrup, and some British hops. Overall: not as awful as I expected to be, but still not great.

suurjuust (1713) - ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2015
Amber beer, beige head. Starchy and candy sweet nose, hints of malt. Flavor is messy malt with toasty and caramel notes, intense sweetness. Like someone steeped fruit caramels in cheap beer. Drinkable, but not much else.

VDuquerroux (606) - Airvault, FRANCE - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle, 500mL. Home. A sparkling brown orange beer with a medium white foam. Thin bubbles. Good persistence. Fruity aroma (red berries, blackcurrant, blackberry), herbs. Medium dry bitterness : refreshing. Light body, thin watery texture, average carbonation, dry bitter finish. Overall, a bit light but refreshing with red berries aroma.

thirstyrabbit (1410) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle. Light copper body, small head. Aroma has "Forest Fruit" flavoured tea and strawberry jam. A light bitter with some added fruitiness, mostly raspberries and blackcurrant. Quite watery and more jammy than fruity. Resembles jam jar washing water.

Amber Farbe, kaum Schaum. Geruch ausschließlich nach Waldbeeren. Geschmack wässrig fruchtig nach Waldbeeren. Im Abgang dann ganz minimale herbe Noten vorhanden.

thellgren (422) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2013
0.5 l bottle from local supermarket. Small head, copper colour. Well, it tastes like an ale flavoured with fruits. Just as promised on the label. Quite refreshing in the summer. Not for those who expect more beerlike experience.

reebtogi (4739) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
500ml bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is light raspberries with some floral notes. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a light tartness some floral hop bitterness perhaps. I found this very refreshing and recommend to others who like a fruit beer where the fruit presence is subtle.

Lagerboy (1534) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
500 ml clear bottle plus no stale date, equates to heightened mistrust. Clear orange copper, creamy white head fades. Berry fruity malty aroma. Taste is bready malty and berry fruity with a faint bitterness. Soft carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. More of a fruit beer than a bitter, I reckon. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
