A pink-ish golden colour is a clear sign that this is something different. A refreshing fruity taste with only the bitterness to remind us that it's a beer. Must be perfect on as an after work beer on a hot day, but not something I would drink a lot of. I do think it's great that Carlsberg dares make such a beer though.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2003 I think it's a fine beer for a summerday. With ice?? Has a aroma of fruit, strawberry?, and the same flavor. Give Carlsberg some credit for trying something new.

No head, brown red color (comes from added elderberries). Light taste of fruit and sweetness but without complexity no hints of that this beer holds 7.7% (beware).
Not as good as the Semper Ardens beers, but definetly better than most of the mainstream beer we get from Carlsberg!

Very much fruit in the red color as well as in flavor. Not much body, but still a good beer on a warm day (I guess this go's for nearly any beer)

A very watery taste, and there is to much carbondioxide in the beer. A fairly OK taste, though it doesn´t last long

Fruity and champagne like. High carbination and alomost no malt and hops

Pink. Very carbonated. Spiced with elder berries, i think they are called. Why do they launch a beer like this during winter?
Decent refreshing summer beer and an OK attempt to make something out of the ordinary. That deserves some credit.

It's OK but uninteresting. A gimmick more than anything else. Heavy and partly well-balanced, but could as well have been some alco-fizz. Give me a good Kriek instead.

I like the taste of this one. The head dissapears too quickly, 30 sec. after pouring it looks like something at a child's birthday.
Very light for a 7,7% beer.

Red with very fast diminishing head. Weak aroma of elderberry. Due to quite high carbonation the flavour is very Summer like and refreshing, but it lacks complexity.
