Taste: sweet start, very fruity, not as sugary as you might expect though, very artificial flavouring.

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2014
At source, 01V2014, unwittingly mixed in with my meal-accompanying draught sampler. Strawberry Sunday, vanilleijsje van de car met aardbeisiroop: long time no see. I hear you have become a beer, alas I have grown up to gain a grownup palate. Farewell, Strawberry Sunday down the boscoli & bocht drain. Que les années ’80 à Mariembourg vous bénissent.

JorisPPattyn (8800) - Ursel, BELGIUM - OCT 29, 2009
Bit soapy-cramy yellowish head over foxy-copper beer. Appaling sweet-perfumed reek, as something made for the toilet of British female teenagers. Or a Cadbury filling. Scorched caramel with the worst artificial fruit flavours. Rather well-carbonated, very faint burning MF, backthroat syrupy slickness. Des Fagnes - there’s one thing I have to admit about them - they never let you down. Just as you thought it couldn’t get worse...

Ungstrup (31475) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of Lipton tea with forrest fruits - not bad - but just not very beer-like. The flavor is very sweet with strong notes of forrest fruits as well as light notes of wood, leading ot an artificially sweet finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

Christian (11983) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2009
Cloudy amber with a small white head. Strong and perfumed-sweet aroma of berries. Sweet berry flavour

BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - APR 18, 2009
75cl, exclusive brew, from De Hopduvel Gent, complex fruit brew, too heavy, not balanced, clear, small head, nothing special, too sweet

fonefan (40503) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2008
Bottle 75cl. @ TFODRBSG 2008, Ulfborg, Denmark
Clear medium amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy forest berry, fruit tea. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. (230808)

Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2008
(Bottle 75 cl) Courtesy of fonefan. Hazy amber golden with tiny floating impurities and a small off-white head. Distinct berry notes - blueberries - are showing in the nose. Medium body, very sweet berry accents, so intense that I bet they cannot be pure fruit alone. No real hop bitterness. 230808

yngwie (15764) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle, 75cl corked, shared by fonefan. A deep golden, more or less clear beer with a decent beige head. There’s just some micro-sized floaties disturbing the view. Very berryish aroma, blueberries very evident, with generic forest-berries as well. The same goes for the flavor, which also has some menthol notes and sweetness, and finishes berryish. Medium to full body and a little carbonation. A really special one, nice though, but I doubt I would finish a bottle on my own. (080823)

faroeviking (10284) - FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 25, 2008
Botella. Courtesy of brugmansiafonefan. Unclear amber. Aroma of forest fruit tea. Sweet very fruity tea currant flavour. Sweet fruity finish. Bustling with sweet fruit, bit too much.
