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.

Foffern (1291) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 7, 2012
On tap at Moeder Lambic, Brussels. The colour is hazy deep red with a small light pink head. Lots of berries and fruits in the aroma along with lemonade, raspberries, bubble gum and vinegums. The flavours is very sweet like melted raspberry candy or raspberry soda. Soft mouthfeel and not even a bit bitter. A very sweet beer with an okay aroma but the taste is in my opinion way to sweet and sticky.

Svesse (6285) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2012
(Draught at Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels, 22 July 2012) Red colour with fluffy, pink head. Fruity nose with notes of red berries, mainly raspberries. Fruity taste with red berries (raspberries, cherries), a touch of vanilla and a light tartness in the finish. Light body, with a certain sweetness. Decent, quite refreshing on a sunny summer day.

Draft @ Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours an unnatural deep purple color with a small white head. The nose is big blackberry and raspberry jam. Some artificial pick ’n mix candy. Hints of mineral. The taste s surgarry jammy fruits, chalky mineral. Little else. Not complex, but perhaps worth a punt on a hot day OK.

CanIHave4Beers (3350) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2012
On draught at Moeder Lambic (Fontainas), for some reason the Menu accredited this beer to St. Feuillien, odd... but whatever.

Pours a pinkish purple with a huge pink head that leaves lots of lacing on the glass.

Aroma is raw raspberry, lightly floral, and not overly sweet smelling.

The flavor is plenty tart and fruity, lots of raspberry, plenty of jammy sweetness. I like the Raspberry flavor but I’m not sure that he 25cl glass was finished by me, I think it was split between my wife and I... this seemed to get more cloying as it warmed. Started strong though.

Hazy dark red beer, pale pink head! Lagerish malt and fruit sweets for a nose. Light semi soft palate, semi dry too. Watery syrupy sweet red berry fruits with a touch of honey. I like sweet fruit beers but this is all over the place and artificial tasting.

Bottle. Pours purple with pink head. Nose/taste of raspberry, blueberry and dietary sugar. Artificial fruit flavorings. Nose seems less artificial than the taste. Light to medium body.
