COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously brewed at De Smedt/Affligem. Scintillating, fresh and delicately flavoured, Grisette Fruits des Bois is a light, refreshing beer that is brewed with the best malt and wheat. This blend creates a riot of sweet yet slightly bitter tastes redolent of wild berries and other exquisite fruits of the forest.

Hazy ruby pink, light contrasting white ringed head. Tart, earthy and acidic juice cordial. Initial taste is richly sweet, off balanced and uninitiated fruitiness. Drying, decent carbonation. Weird pacey sweet fruit finish and dry sticky sweet linger. Brassy bitter. 25cl bottle.

NosirIwont (2044) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. 3.5%. Best before 16.07.14; 7 months past. Pours a hazy dark amber, with a pinkish head. Aroma is a blend of berries and cooked vegetables. Horrendous. Cereals in the background. Flavour is overly sweet, almost sugary, with berries and more cooked vegetables. Quite bad. Dryish finish. Overall quite bad, due to the cooked vegetables, otherwise it might be drinkable. 28.02.15.

Deep red colour. Aroma has a bit of cardboard, dust and sweet red fruits. Sweet taste of dark berries.

Icedwarf (533) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JAN 3, 2015
Rood bier met schuim. Smaak is licht zoet en weinig vrucht. kan eigenlijk geen bosvruchten smaak ontdekken. Niet bijzonder.

pinky foamy head with distinct black berry flavors and bitter hints. hazy light ruby colored body. tastes like juice with little carbonation and surprisingly no bitterness. not too sweet either.

Alengrin (2815) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Fruit beer aromatized with ’forest fruit’ extracts, not very original as Timmermans and Anker, among others, already did that too. Lilac foam, deep purplish red colour, sweet and artificial aroma of blueberry, raspberry and strawberry extracts, lemonade-like, grenadine, few other things. Very sweet and artificial taste, sugary, light mouthfeel, slight tartness. Again a horrible witbier-based soda pop.

Een lekker verfrissend fruitbier voor op warme dagen te drinken. Een aanrader

JefVerstraete (1856) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2014
Red colour, pink foam. Medium carbonation. Very sweet fruit beer, artificial sweeteners, sugar and red candy. Not very well balanced. Some sour hints and light bitterness in the finish.

bartlebier (2366) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 27, 2014
25cl bb03/2015. Basically a decent quality supermarket-level cassis, strawberry and raspberry jam poured into a generic wit. Fluffy, yet bogged down by artificial sweeteners before it departs into a refreshing direction, perfumed rather than tasteful. Nothing offensively bad, mother’s favourite over many a syrup beer concoction.
