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.

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.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2012
Bottle @ home. Hazy yellow blond coloured beer with some medium carbonation and a small white head. Rather strange fruity hinted aroma with some hoppy notes. Berries comming forward, with a hint of cranberry. Medium to full palate. Finish is rather soft, fruity, cherry hinted with a sweeter fruity ending. Alternative fruit beer, not bad, but not overwhelming either, little to sweet for me.

Spiced fruit nose with with some bubblegum and some sweet and sour notes. It has the herbaceous qualities you get in a lot of Belgians, particularly the lighter abbey ales like Chimay Red. Pours a strange muddy orange colour. Flavour is muddled and cloying with muddy fruit and sour yeast coming through too strongly. Not a successful fruit beer really as it’s too sweet and unbalanced for a beer fan and too sharp and yeasty for a fruit beer drinker.
