Poured from 50cl can, dark read with a white head tinged with reddish hue. Sweet fruity nose, tastes somewhat like cherry Coke. Not my style at all, too sweet to be refreshing.

Tasted in Namur. Artificially sweetened, fruity beer. Rather for women, not for a beer geek.

Bright red with thin white head. Little carbonation. Little like strawberry cream soda or fizzy ribena. Slight fizz on tongue and mouth - too sweet, not very enjoyable as a beer.

Once upon a time fashion made it for sweet fruity beverages. So beer global players started to mix fruit sirup with beer. An awful mess. If you want fruits, go for lambic!

SarkyNorthener (3018) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2015
Can from carrefour@soissons, france. Pink beer with light pink bubbly head. Aroma is faint cherry drops. Taste is lemonade, light lager malts and stale cherry drops. Not great.

TedE (498) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2015
On tap, some sports bar in Paris. Sweet acidic nose. Dark red beer with thin head. Tastes like fizzy Ribena. Only hint of beer is a slight malt undercurrent to the blackcurrant aftertaste. Nice but not beer.

Według notatek z przeszłości. Kolor czrewony ciemny, piana różowa. Piwo słodke, nuty czerwonych owoców.

puredelusion (135) - Lviv, UKRAINE - MAR 3, 2015
0,33 bottle. Pours hazy ruby colour with minimal white head, that is quickly diminishing. Aroma is strictly artificial and sugary, some redberries, bubblegum, raisins. Taste is medium sweet, almost without bitterness. Raisins, strawbery, cranberry are present. Aftertaste is abrupt and something sour, nothing to said about. Hazy liquid, medium carbonation, medium body. Boring beer, if it can be called so.

Paris 2/9 2014. 50 cl from can. Pours high clear red with white head which only slowly subsides. Aroma like strawberry lemonade - not much like a beer. Slightly prickly mouthfeel. Sweet synthetic taste which does not last long. Slightly sweet aftertaste. In the description they promise a combination of berries and autentic abbey beer. Not much of the beer around. Too much berries - too little beer.

Dostało mi się coś takie dziwne, ale butelka ładna i kapsel ładny, no to pomyślałem że spróbuję. Jest to radler w dodatku zrobione przez Carlsberga Barwa czerwona, klarowne, coś tam pracuje, ale piany brak. Aromat truskawkowy, coś jak połączenie herbaty owocowej i winiacza, taki lekki kwach. W smaku aż się boję co to będzie. Płaskie, owocowe, ze wskazaniem na truskawki, kwaskowe. Wytrawne, wysoko wysycone, goryczki jak to w radlerach nie ma co szukać.
