Colour is fantastic at least for postioning and marketing purposes. Pink foam is attractive, too. Wildberry notes, somehow fruity. It’s sweet. Bitterness is low. I think the packaging desing is really appealing.

DraftDodger (327) - - APR 23, 2015
Copenhagen 23/4 2015. 50 cl can from Fakta with drawing of grumpy viking on the label. Pours red brown with pinkish head probably from the fruit juice. Head settles to a thin layer fairly quickly. Aroma is rather sweet and malty. Medium carbonation. Taste is also sweet and a little lemonadelike. Quite watery despite holding 6,5 %. A red beer with fruit juice and pink head seems a bit girlish for a beer inspired by the brutal vikings. But too much lemonade for my taste in any case.

MarkoNm (1107) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - APR 2, 2015
Pours a clear red color, topped with an average off-white frothy head that soon settles. Malty aroma, sweet caramel and slightly fruity. Taste follows the nose - sweet, some fruity notes and caramel. No real bitterness. A bit of a weird one, not really likeable.

330 ml bottle. Pours a clear red colour with a small off-white head that laces. Malt aroma with acidic fruit and straw. Sweet malty flavour with acidic fruit and a dry, hoppy, bitter finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

nulla di eccezionale. L’inizio liquoroso rende la birra decisamente dolce, anche se la carica alcolica non è imponente. Direi che è una birra da bevuta discreta.
