UPDATED: JUN 26, 2003 Bottled. Chocolate brown, very muddy with creamy head. Looks like hot chocolate with whipped cream and a fruit drink poured into it. Big black currant aroma. Sweet and fatty, completely dominated by sugary black currant. Just bizarre.

yngwie (13346) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2008
Bottle. A dark brown beer with a beige head. Cola, roasted malt, berries and sweetness in the aroma. Pleasant, but nothing more. The same goes for the flavor, but the sweetness is not as evident. Berries, some cola and roasted malt. Sugary, medium body. Nice in a way, but I wonít miss it. (080215)

Beer4000 (4434) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2008
Bottle. Hazy red/brown body with a big and fast disappearing red/brown head. Aroma is sweet fruity, acid and Cola actually. Flavor has also this weird Cola taste with sweet slightly roasted malt and a fruity acidity. A bit weird, but I also enjoyed this strange brew.

ghawener (1457) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - JAN 18, 2009
Bottle: Positively surprised. well balanced fruit & sweetness lasts until last sip. Starts strong with fresh red berries and ends dry almost wine-like.

mullet (849) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2005
Nice darkish red-purple colour, clear with bad head retention. The cap had a weird grey-yellow deposit where the liquid had touched it. Did not look good. Aroma of grainy chocolate, sour cream, diacetyl, vague Ribena. Something is wrong - my guess is a phenolic infection but itís unlike anything Iíve known. Itís kind of like wood-plastic-hair I guess. Thereís something like a megalager in there too. Tastes sweet, like dark grape juice with an acrid roastiness, bandaids and astringency. At least itís good to know itís not just Aussie micros that have QC issues.

HughConway (786) - Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Drunk at brewery. Very sweet, like the other El Bolson fruit beers. Sweeter than the cherry or the raspberry, so be expecting. Not horrible, just different.

Linc (737) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2002
Well, hell this is a sweet little number! They make it with bulk amounts of fruit pulp, so much that it is a deep purple colour with a pinkish head. Overwhewlming taste of cassis, the hops and malt are completely lost. The only beer like qualities are the head and the excellent, full body.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2007
Bottle drunk at Santiago airport, thanks CristiŠn and David! Doesnít look too bad and smells fruity, but itís basically a load of syrup poured into a beer which gets totally swamped by all the sugary-sweet fruitiness. Yeuch!!!!

davidpl (435) - Santiago, CHILE - MAY 23, 2007
Appearance: Color dark ruby. Medium head, slightly consistent and low persistence. Aroma: sweet tone of red wild fruits, yeast and something piquant. Low presence of hop and of the malts. Flavor: beer or fizzy juice?. Acid touch of cassis and of other red wild fruits. Excessive presence of yeast, piquant tone. Low presence of hop and malts. Palate: light body and low carbonation. Not advisable. (sorry for my english)
