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.

TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 8, 2009
Bottled 25 cl (BB 08/2009).
From oh6gdx, tu Pat. Hazy, deep cherry red color, small pinky head. Slightly tart, mainly sweetish aroma of blackberry jam and cherry stones. Medium-bodied. Sweetish flavor of rasberry/blackberry. Quite fizzy carbonation. Low on alcohol or bitterness, so much like drinking rasberry and strawberry juice.

Apple & Pear on the nose, cloudy blonde to look at. Taste-wise sickly sweet with banana and apple on the tongue. Not my cup of tea at all.

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 17, 2009
Bottled (from lahoublonniere.be). Ruby red colour with big long lasting pink head. Aroma is raspberries, blueberries, some mild sourish notes. Flavour is red currant, raspberry, black currant, blackberry and some sour wooden notes as well. Rather sweet, which makes it best while cold.

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle. A cloudy deep red beer with a huge, quite persistent, pink head. The aroma is sweet and sugary with notes of raspberries and blueberries, but also sourish, medicinal and skunky. Very cloying nose. The flavour is, no surprise, very sweet and sugary with a medium acidity and hints of berries. Medium body, lively carbonation, quite long finish with no bitterness. Excessively sweet and syrupy, nice appearence, but totally cloying and unpleasant for me.
