Just plain disgusting from the first sip, and it didn’t get any better along the way. Thin and fizzy, like cola without carbonation.

While in Europe I am disappointed by fluids. The Wines are astringent except for the German Auslese. The Beers are either too carbonated or have bad aftertastes. Water seems like a cop out. The sweet oude bruins are a wonderful drink with street foods. A great replacement for Soda and yummy in their own right. 2nd Best choice Leffe Brune.

0.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle, bought in some Dutch supermarket. Pours a clear dark mahogany with a very fizzy head. Am I pouring Coca-cola, now? Aroma is dark caramel. Thin, fizzy mouthfeel. Sweet and quite vomit-inducingly so. Some caramel - might as well drink a bottle of "kulør"... yuk!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear dark caramel coloured, fading off-white head. A fine children’s drink. Blueberry and cherry flavours containing a soda-pop character. A fruitier root beer with strong, overwhelming sweetness. Thin bodied enough to be drinkable though.

it’s difficult to remain neutral while reviewing something you don’t like .... and this brew is definitely not to my personal liking ...
while pouring I actually had quite some expectations, the color is very dark black, almost opaque, the head was firm and steady ... the smell was not very spectacular, which I explained for myself to be a result of the chill (I poured it at 6 degrees Celsius) ... the taste ... well, best described by "Dry Pepsi Light with a hint of malt" ... says it all I guess ...
again, I am not saying this is a bad beer, I am just stating I don’t like it ...

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Looks like cola. Almost no aroma detectable, only a slight sweetness is apparent in the smell. The texture is thin and fizzy (just like cola). Flavour is bland and sweet (just like cola). There’s no trace of hop or malt only a sticky sugary sweetness. It may be somewhat refreshing, but so is tap water...
