nuplastikk (4123) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2014
750ml flip top bottle. Opens with a nice pop. Pours a dulled purple amber body. Thin, soda like head. The fruit taste is nice, but the background beer is so mild it almost doesn’t register. Mild and easy going, utilizes simple clean brown malts that the French excel at. A great picnic beer or dinner beer, very smooth and easy on the palate, refreshing.

mansquito (3105) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2013
New Beer Distributors, NY 750ml ($7): Pours a red that is just read enough that you know there are berries and shit in there. Head is pink, so yeah. Aroma reminds me of a combination of pale lager and the raspberry syrup I used to put into seltzer as a kid. Taste is fruity and fortunately not too sweet. The fruity side is fine, but the beer side is sort of lacking. I purchased this on a whim, but the price tag should have steered me away.

Aroma is what I assume to be bilberries (like a mix of grapes and cherries) and an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is berries, malts and a mix of sweetness and tartness in the finish. Kind of one-dimensional but not bad.

Cloudy purple toned beer with a frothy pink head! Light palate, a little crispy and semi dry. Odd burned cotton starts off! Pleasant tangy blackberry follows. Mild creamy malt before the dry finish. Okay fruit but the burned cotton is pretty off putting.

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 4, 2013
330ml bottle shared by Finn. Reddish-amber body, unclear. White head, nice artwork to the glass. Plain sweet berries to the nose. Taste of strawberry mingled with raspberry as well as a few hints of earthy malts. Dry and sweet ending. Unvaried, but drinkable (at Finns in Tromsø, 02.01.2013).

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Flaske 0,33l fra Brune Rousse Houblon, Nice. Brygg 91. Delt med Rune under rateseanse i H9 2 Jan 13. Dyp rødbrun. Middels luftig skum med mye lacing. Kjempesterk jordbæraroma. Silkemyk tungefølelse. Smaken glir i retning av bringebær. Blir ikke for søt. Bra - men litt kjedelig.

Lubiere (9427) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
A reddish copper ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a smooth sweet myrtle berry with light chalky notes, cherries, quite nice. In mouth, a refreshing lightly acidic cranberry like spritzer, not bad. Bottle at Mondial 2012, June 9 2012.
