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.

draft@Chez Moeder Lambic: looks like & smells like strawberry jam & syrup, taste follows the smell, sweet but not artificial mashed wild strawberries plus jam & syrup, the basis appears to be a wheat beer but the fruits really dominate, strucure is a bit jam-like but not thick, bit too sweat to drink to much, nice if you like jam or forest fruits but can quickly get too much

Bottle from Foreign Bar, Luton Beer Festival ’11. Red. Faint sweet fruity aroma and taste. Watery and disappointing. Nothing more to say.

Leighton (10466) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2011
Tap at the Evening Star, Brighton. Pours a deep, hazy maroon with a foamy, white head. Holds a sweet, fresh berry aroma. Sweet flavor but not too cloying or syrupy, lots of berries with very faint bitterness. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Has a sweet, lingering berry finish with just a touch of crispness. Quite refreshing. Nice.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2010
On tap at L’Imaige de Notre Dame. Dark red body with a pink head. Nose of cherries. Taste also of sweet cherries. Wagtery texture. Quite sweet. Like Cassis but light. Nice balance, I thought.

Vaiz (3261) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2010
Bottle. Hazy purple pour with a small white head that laces. Aroma of grainy malts, fruits and some sour berries. Flavor is fruity sweet with berries, somewhat artificial. Quite simple yet easy drinkable brew.

wimpie133 (380) - Brugge, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2010
Can, 25 cl. Red beer with medium white head disappearing in the end. Aroma of artificial wood fruits, but also too sweet and a bit skunky. Taste are also artificial wood fruits, far too sweet and unnice to drink. Another sweet and bad fruit beer.
