nuplastikk (5253) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2015
500ml bottle at Brasserie V. Very cool label that has drawings of all the fruits used. In most ways a pretty straight forward fruit beer. Deep fruity red-amber body. Not mindblowing at all, but has a great body and a unique fruity depth. Some dry pitty aspirin tones. Cherry, currant are the dominant tones, but no fruit really jumps out at you. A little dry and pitty after awhile. OK.

Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 20). Bottle 50 cl - Batch 562. AROMA: pleasant fruit blend aroma and not artificial. no hop aromas and no deffects. APPEARANCE: light reddish color with a bit of an orange tint, with a lot of material in suspension. light pink head with good retention. TASTE: medium-low intensity flavour somewhat reflecting the aroma but it is not artificial. some bitterness is present and finishes dry with a bit of astringency. PALATE: light body maybe due to the fruit fermentables, medium-low carbonation. OVERALL: this fruit beer is made with fruits not available in our country so the aromas and flavours are a bit of an unknown. neverthless, it does not have an artificial profile nor defects. overall, a different fruit beer.

Hazy amber beer, small pink tinged cream head. Palate is light and dry, modest carbonation. Dry seltzer and dry floralness. Light floral generic fruits, little fruit acid. Dry finish. A big disappointment, instead of the big berry fruit burst I was hoping for we get a flaccid apologetic berry. Bah!

Inbreak (3337) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - FEB 21, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 14.02.2014, 0,5l bottle shared with Palme @ Håndverkerstuene:
Small creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is very mild and balanced, almost a little neutral, heather, grass, small hints of berries - mostly red currants. Taste is slightly harsh grassy, almost a little metallic, berry skin, heather, weeds, hay, grass, hints of crowberries. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough, still miss a solid berry touch.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle:   Very reddish in color, big foamy faint pinkish head, nice lacing.   A faint fruity example, a little shrubby, a little tart.   Fairly non-deScript in the type of berries.   Not artificial, but also not very big.   Moderate example, clean, and like so many other of the Scandinavian berry beers, a bit shrubby.

ClubGonzo (4896) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle @ Cardinal, Stavanger.. Pours a coppery red body with a large creamy off-white head. Nose is red berries, straw, red berries, hints of citrus and crowberries. Taste is sour red berries, straw, tart crowberries, hints of citric peel. Medium to light body and carbonation. OK, but not very impressive.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle served in snifter: Deep amber hue with some pinkish highlights topped by a fading fizzy head and not much lace. The aroma is pure berry field heaven, twangy, slightly tart, slight earthy and some caramel to back it up. The taste is rather straight forward however, fruity sure but not a lot of other things to peak my interest. A light handed spice tone towards the finish did help ever so little. The mouth feel is a tad watery and grainy but works well enough within the framework of the flavor profile. It is a quaffable brew, pretty tasty fruit beer, nothing mind blowing but solid never the less.

Botella de 5o cl en Cimeria 30-12-13 lote 562 de 16-01-13. Color rojizo turbio con bastante espuma blanca también algo rojiza que va disipándose quedando ligera capa y corona final. Presenta pequeños posos. Cuerpo ligero medio algo pastoso, fácil de beber. Aroma caramelo de cereza y bayas silvestres. Sabor dulce de caramelo y de cereza amarga seguido de bayas silvestres, frutas del bosque. Amargo final muy suave. Bonita etiqueta con todas las bayas que la condimentan: grosella, baya de cuervo o camarina negra, cereza, espino amarillo y arándano. Buena, toques dulces y silvestres bien combinados.

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle at Haand Festival. A pinkish-orange beer, unclear, and topped by a small, white head. The aroma is mostly on the berry side, with a little touch of cellar in the back. Redcurrant, blueberry and raspberry. Some bitterness in the flavor, and also some acidity, as well as the berries found in the aroma. Medium body, dry, and a tad lot on carbonation. Some bitterness in the very end. A refreshing and easy drinkable one. 130524
