COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for www.pijubeer.com with Goji berries (aka "Wolfberries"). Our Goji berries are found in still very remote unpolluted valleys of Himalaya where the soil is loved and respected. After a very strict selection, our Master Brewer is extracting the essence of the fruit in order to create the finest and most tastefull beer. Goji Beer offers a totally new flavor with notes of cranberry, cherry and plum but you will also feel its extraordinary nurturing vitality.

Cloudy orange - amber beer. Big pale apricot coloured head that dissolves with a loud snap, crackle and pop! Crispy and semi dry palate. Sharp minerals with a little seltzer. Nice fruits - tangy Goji with a little orange. Semi dry finish. The nice Goji flavour is a little out muscled by the seltzer minerals but overall a good beer and I do like the Ecaussinnes experimentation.

Leighton (9874) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. Pours cloudy pink with a light, white foam head. Light to medium sweet with faint, tangy fruits. Light to medium bodied with averag to high carbonation. Clean finish, pretty sweet. Actually the beer is pretty OK.

JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011
Off-white, small head, gone in seconds. Hazed orange beer. Sweetish-fruity nose, berries (as to which...?), suggesting fruitacids. Fruity-floral. Hints at citrus, but more sweet than sour. End of bottle, containing the yeast, gets markedly more fruity, and slightly sweeter. Too shy, fruit ought to explode more. Definitely refreshing, quite carbonated, light body (acidthinning?). OK, but nowhere great.

Benzai (6436) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 21, 2012
33cl bottle thanks to Dutchdrebus. Gusher. Hazy, murky yellow-orange color, huge fizzy white head that diminishes instantly. Smell malts, sourish, rubber. Taste malts, lightly fruity and sweetish. Very low bodied with a bit fizzy carbonation. Easy to drink fruitbeer with a mediocre aroma. Could have been worse though.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 15, 2011
33cl bottle. Dorée, col blanc. Arôme de levure belge qui domine un peu avec le profile de baies de Goji laissant des notes fruitées. En bouche, levure et houblon citronné, le tout ayant une pointe de fruit acidulés et sec de baies de Goji. Seule fois que j’ai pu les gouter étant avec ne bière de Cigar City au Goji Berries. Le palais est assez fiable offrant un léger picotement de carbonation qui se dissipe assez vite laissant un aspect pétillant faible. Le tout se rapproche du raisin offrant à la fois ce profile aigre-doux. Pas mauvais, mais le côté de baie reste trop en retrait.

33cl, new exclusive brew Anno 2011, with Goji berries, from De Hopduvel Gent, not complex fruit brew, fruity/spicy and slightly sweet, yet balanced, cloudy, small head, nothing special, yet original brew!

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2012
(Bottled) Very hazy yellow-golden with a small, firm head. Aroma of dryish red currants, unidentified berries, and surprisingly (considering the ABV) also alcohol and yeast. Flavor is berryish and neutral with notes of raspberry stones and yeast. Medium body, somewhat foamy CO2. Not bad; quite balanced and not too sweet, but lacks flavor. 3335
