1.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
40 cl bottle @ VastActiv
Aroma has fruit juice, lemomade and grapefruit juice. Flavour has grapefruit lemonade, some fruit candy and harsh bitter notes. This is too bitter for a lemonade and too lemony bitter for a beer. Useless.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
(Bottle, 0.4 l, courtesy of FatPhil, 20141122) The beer poured red and clear. Its head wasn’t there. Aroma had strawberry soda and chilli sauce. Palate was light bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruit juice, citricness, sweetness and more sweetness. Aftertaste was sweet. A pointless brew.

Pours red with a smooth head. Aroma of artificial flavors, spices and sweet lemonade. Taste is sweet, stuffy and artificial with notes of berries and lemonade. Finish is sweet and sugary with artificial lemonade notes. Baaaaad.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
New version of the infamous Desperados, with not just tequila flavour added, but also cachaça (Brazilian rhum) and guarana (a caffeine-producing South American plant popular in energy drinks and the like), as well as industrial citric acid - and the expected tons of sugar. Poured from a 50 cl can, it displays a pure but misty copper colour and a medium thick, off-white head with pinkish hue, sticky and more or less stable, though reduced to a lace and ’islands’ in the middle after a while. The nose gets industrial lemon juice from a bottle, ice tea, energy drink, orange lemonade, grenadine, brown rhum and a lot of white sugar, but nothing in the aroma even remotely says ’beer’. The taste is a lot like some Coca Cola Company soda pop: artificial sugary citrus combined with ascorbid acid. Strong carbo with minerally effect further adds to this effect. Energy drink (Red Bull style - a drink I have detested ever since it came onto the market) is apparent too, as a result of the guarana; in the finish, faint hints of rhum and perhaps vague tequila appear with a bitterish, artificial, chemical, somewhat wry effect which is only tempered by an awfully cloying sugary sweetness; the artifical acidity further dries the mouth. Again: almost no actual beer taste, just a weak hint of pale malts far away in the background. Of all the beer styles around, flavoured pale lagers from transparent longneck bottles or showy cans are by far my least favourite; I had expected this to be the worst beer I was ever going to taste, but it disgusted me just a little bit less than the regular version (I hasten to stress "a little bit"). Still: ghastly and only appealing to people who don’t actually like the taste of real beer. Very obnoxious too, the sweetness stuck to my teeth and palate for a very long time, blocking my abilities to taste real beers. One point off for ruining my evening!

Can @ RBBSG, 2014. Clear red, artificial color. Aroma of chemical lemonade. Same goes for the taste. Sucks big time.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Wait, is this really beer? It tastes more like a soda pop. As a soda I’d give this a 3.3. As a beer? Not so much.

Oranżada podszywająca się pod piwo. Da się pić, smak niezgorszy, ale po co to pić?

Een bier dat het midden houdt tussen redbull en bier. Als je van redbull houdt is dit wel lekker
