500ml can, 6%. An interesting blend of abbey beer with fruit beer. Pours red with small white head. Lightly carbonated. Light and fruity, refreshing and quite sweet. Strawberry and possibly other fruit tones going on, which is the dominant flavour. Not bad but definitely a once off for me.

Fin (7701) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Keg at Bar Basque, Toulouse, Sunday 16th November 2014 Pours reddy amber with a pinkish head. Fuck me this is a shocker, a solid gold (but actually red) sweet, fruity, artificial, syrupy shocker. The best thing about this is that I asked for a small beer. A5 A4 T3 P2 Ov8 2.2

Vighals (1417) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2014
Mørk rød klar med lavt rosa skum. Litt kunstig jordbær og bringebærlukt. Gelepulver. Smaker overraskende bittert ut fra lukten, litt druesten, vind smak. Kort lett bitter.

Draught at Le Glacier, Limoges on 24 August. Poured a clear pink, with a dense pink head. Aroma of strawberry, apricot and bread. Fruit sweetness dominates the flavour, with blackcurrant, raisins and underlying maltiness. Finish was grain, cooked fruit and notes of cough syrup.
