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.

One of the best beers I’ve had in a very long time, the Grisette is a beautifully-composed blend of airy carbonated lightness, the blowing wind pushing a sailboat of zesty berry fruitiness atop a dark sea of solid Belgian malt.

Leighton (11355) - 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.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Tap. A’ite, everyone else bashes this stuff, but I liked it. Maybe I’m just so burned out on horridly unbalanced stuff here that this tastes comparatively decent? Violet, small head. Rich aroma of strawberries and raspberries, and chuck in a few cherries for the flavor. Thick, sweet mouthfeel. Most prominently raspberry. I feel like I’m going to bite in a little seed that will get stuck between my teeth.

Deep hazy rosy red coloured body with a thinnish white head. Aroma of sweet raspberries and strawberries with wheat. Light-bodied; Super sweet flavour of caster sugar, fruits and a bit of yeast - very nice & sweet. Aftertaste shows more sweetness with some pale malt coming through. Overall, a great beer - very sweet but definitely showing character! I sampled this beer on draught at Chez Moeder Lambic in Bruxelles, Belgium on 28-December-2007.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - SEP 16, 2004
Draft @ Ølbaren, Copenhagen. Unclear red, almost flourescent body, small pink head. Very fruity aroma of berries, strawberry, raspberry, cherry and some slight sourness. The flavor has a very gentle sour touch and then all the different kind of berries. Very thin bodied, but easy drinkable. I really liked this one, its light body is very pleasant. Like a fruit lambic, without the lambic.

77ships (4135) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2011
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

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2006 Top-fermented, raspberry-hued fruit beer with a rocky pink head. Yes, pink. Raspberry and sugar dominate, but there’s just enough sharpness and acidity in the finish to make this a refreshing summer quencher, as opposed to cloyingly sticky. Raspberry in the nose, of course. But hats off to the pinkness.
