3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From tap @ UBF13. Thanks for sharing Abijen! Pours murky light brown/reddish with a small white head. Aroma is red fruits, can’t really identify what kind of fruit, and a bit tart. Taste is also red fruits, slightly tart and dry. Medium carbonation and a light to medium body. Another nice surprise from De Leckere.

Tap @ UBF13. Cloudy reddish purple color, short head. Soft fruity aroma, dark fruit, mostly berries of some kind. Soft fruity taste, bit sweet, slight sour. All not really outspoken, but easy to drink. Nice to see they are experimenting with a lot of different styles and ingredients.
