Bottle shared. Very hazy red with a medium thick pink head. Aroma of big artificial chemical red fruit. Flavour is heavy sweet. Above light bodied with soft carbonation. Seems like horrible sweet chemical nastiness, but bought in a bio store so assume it’s not actually chemical.

Poured at basement temperature. Rather natural taste though a little bland. Doesn’t feel like a beer. Dominant raspberry aroma and taste.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bière fruité, au goût de sirop. Elle n’as rien d’une bière. Mais reste acceptable dans sa catégorie "bière pour ados qui aime pas la bière "

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fast mounting and equally fast gone pinkish head, over veiled ruby-red beer. Nose of (red) fruitjam, sweet, tad vegetable, some disparate malts. Jam, mainly. Faintly sweet, faintly sourish flavour. The sweetness is red fruitjam, the acidity, I’m afraid, is mainly CO². It’s not bad, but nowhere enticing. Way too fizzy carbonation, ultra light body. Bof.

Ambrée rouge, col rose fin, effervescence moyenne. Les fruits rouges et des bois sont bien présents mais goûtent surtout le sirop trop sucré et la chimie, aqueuse, on s’en passe.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
33cl bottle. Dark red color with pink, medium head.
NOSE : strong aroma of fruit syrup made of raspberries. I could add some more fruity aromas but raspberry and cherry are surely a dominating note. Tart. It is a sweet nose overall.
SIP : it is really oily and well carbonated. Quite thick. This beer is hugely sweet. I mean cloying sweet. It has a very strange taste of medicine and fruits. It becomes a bit sour with fruit and dried fruit in the end. It has almost no bitterness what so ever but it does finish on a fruit tea like something that could lead to more dry notes but ...someone put too much sugar in it. And cough syrup.
OVERALL : it’s going to be the last time I drink this fruit beer. Off balance and funky.
