2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, 330ml from Hopduvel Warehouse, Ghent. Slightly pink amber with white head. Well I thought that I was drinking a fruit beer here, the aroma is sweet raspberry and the flavour hints at strawberry and particularly sweet. A sweet maltiness pervades and blocks any attempt at hops, very strange.

why the H, E, double hockey sticks did i buy this, i avoided it for almost half a decade, did i do wrong, lets see?? .. .. expired on 2008/10/27 ... . quite alot of musk even before i put my nose in the glass, when i do i get lots of honey and fox ass .. . great 9mm white covering head, lacing is pretty good too .. . pours a very murky dark tan ... . some dusty and sour notes to go along with the muddled honey sweetness, axel f pre drop tartness .. . past its prime but i know a fresh sample would fit this example anyways ..nice spritz.. . i avoided for years, ..my esp was working, never again... i will get the runs from this .. .

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Orange-peach colored hazy body with a nice foamy white head. The appearance is ok, but the continuation. Artifical fruity aroma of raspberries and must, some aceton in the nose(i’ve tasted character like this in bad spirits-palinkas). Disharmonic flavor with fruity esters and unpleasant hop. Dry, unbalanced aftertaste. I do not understand this beer...The problem might be at the boiling and with the conditions of fermentation(temperature is too high but the running is too slow). I do not know...

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear orange amber. Smells abundantly of artificial raspberries. Sugary and cloyingly sweet. Finishes pretty much the same with a lot more sugar. Not the worst of the day, but up there.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Orange pour topped by a white film. Very sweet aroma- oxidized watered down framboise with medicinal character. Light spongy feel- old papery flavor with medicinal sweetness. Tastes like a watered down, cheap, overly sweet framboise. Quite weird and unpleasant.
