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.

2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33 cl. bottle @ home. Procured from Het Natuurhuis in Antwerp. No BBF. Pours a dark raspberry with a brown shade & fading dark pink head. Smells like spoiled milk (uh oh!), raspberry grenadine with mould, pretty appalling. Taste luckily only like raspberry grenadine with touch cassis, very sugary, fake despite what the label with all the organic & natural certificates might tell me, those seem almost like an insult when I taste this. Behind all the sweetness, lots of sugar here, white sugar & cane sugar tastes are heavy, there is a faint lemon juice extract note in the back. Body is grenadine & pits. Sigh another all sweetened fruit beer with a label carrying so much nonsense about natural ingredients etc. it almost feels like a direct insult this time around. While the taste is of the drinkable variety, there is clearly an issue with the smell.
