2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Organic multi-fruit beer with medium thick, lightly lacing, snow white head and hazy deep fuchsia colour with slight amberish hue. Aroma heavily laden with classic sweet fruit: red raspberry but most of all raspberry jam or sugary raspberry yoghurt, sugared cassis, eldeberry syrup, the blueberry being less evident, otherwise a light lemony touch, pure sugar again and a vague tea-like presence (maybe the hops). Very sweet raspberry and blueberry jam flavor, heavily sugared, cloying with hints of honey and apple sauce, sharpish carbo, some thin lemony sourishness but in a faint and simple way yet luckily providing some balance against the red fruit candy sweetness, soft bready malt base, very vague and brief hop bitterish accent far away in the background but the sugar keeps lingering. Way too sweet to be enjoyable to the more experienced palate, but I can imagine some less ’beery’ people will like this and technically there is nothing wrong with it. At least not as bad as that Rosé des Remparts I remember from Binchoise.

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.
