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.

BKHansen (55) - Praestø, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2016
50 cl. dåse. Rødbrun med lille hvidlig skumkrone. Smagen er sødlig og frugtagtig. Medium fylde og let bitterhed men en okay øl.

Very sweet and fruity with dominant fruit juice flavors. Works well as an aperitif.

Bamsen78 (4810) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 8, 2016
Can. Pours reddish amber with airy pinkish off-white head. Clear aroma of some cheap fruit juice, with notes of yeast. Sweetish flavour of cheap juice and inferior yeast, with notes of metal and touches of hops and malt. Bitter, metallic and estery aftertaste. Poor. Now, here’s the important part. Years ago, when I was half my present age, a teacher of mine warmly recommended this beer to me. I lived in Poland at that time and paid what was a small fortune to me to get this beer. Deeply impressed, I genuinely thought the beer was delicious. So much so that when I first visited Denmark a few years later, I asked for this beer in a variety of shops but it was nowhere to be found. Finally, one evening in a drowsy 7-11 in Copenhagen, a young sales assistant kindly explained to me that the beer could not be sold in Denmark because it contained detergent. Well, she may not have known the first thing about beer, or just her English was not good enough, but... it tastes as if she was damn right.

Kosmokrator (803) - ITALY - NOV 17, 2015
Limpido color rosso con sottile schiuma bianca. Aroma e gusto dolciastri, debolmente maltati, con una punta di amarognolo. Corpo lieve, effervescenza media. Birra piuttosto "chimica" ma non eccessivamente spiacevole.

I found this one in my cellar, which was bought at least 8 or 9 years ago. The date on the bottle states : "26.07.2008" It’s not that bad actually. It has a light smell that says that it’s old, but still drinkable. Red fruits, sweet, alcohol seems higher Not much co2 left

(5) Average at best. So the memories of this beer goes back to (I have had it since) but it is one of the earliest beers that I have tried.

En billig men alligevel rimelig øl. Der er en stærk smag af alkoholen men ellers er der ikke det store over den.

Desverger (7027) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2015
Can from Brugsen, Copenhagen - Amber pour with off white head. Sweet malty aroma and taste, vague hints of caramel, toffee, fruity, with metallic notes on the palate, artificial chemical nuances, rather unpleasant.
