maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2005
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. An atrtractive bright red coloured beer with a nice white head. The aroma is wheaty and the taste is quite bitter. A nice enough beer but if it were not for the colour you would just assume this is a bog standard wheat beer. The alleged fruit doesnít come through in the aroma nor the taste.

Fin (7701) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2007
Bottle, from the Little Beer Shop, Ludlow, Salop, 10-03-07. Poured a wonderful pinky red colour with a large white head. Nice fruity nose, taste was a really good, crisp, and with a slightly sour taste, quite pleased to find that it wasnít artificially sweet, tasted like a good wheat beer, really enjoyed this.

Sigmund (5325) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 29, 2005
Cask conditioned at the 32nd Cambridge Beer Festival, gravity dispense. ABV was listed as 4%, but brewery website says 4.1%. Intensely clear red (and I mean RED - like a cranberry soda) colour. Minimal carbonation. Moderate cranberry aroma. Very thin mouthfeel - like water with artificial red colouring added. The colour makes you expect something very sweet, but it is not. Not sour either. Relatively dry, actually, with just a very moderate flavour of cranberries and some faint hops. Not much wheat character. Did I mention a thin and watery mouthfeel? Yes, I know itís not a fruit lambic, but I feel entitled to expect something better than this. Better leave brewing fruit beers to the Belgians, I guess ....

RichardGretton (4296) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2007
Bottle. Still pale tomato juice looking beer with a light head. The aroma is cheesey and fruity (if this is what cranberry is like it does not smell nice), the flavour is sour fruit and slightly dry. Overall a very sour beer, quite weird.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2005
Pink and with a definite fruit taste.This surprised me as I am not a great fan of fruit beers. Very refreshing and would make an ideal summers drink. Strong mouthfeel with a lasting aftertaste of fruit.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2009
Cask, gravity, at Northamptonshire Beer Festival í09. Bright red with a nasty pinkish head which looked as if it was composed of soap bubbles. Oddly the aroma I picked up was heavy old fashioned malt and yeast. Rather a thin taste: some wheatiness perhaps. Mid bitter finish. No sign of cranberry, except in the lurid colour.

DanielBrown (3927) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2004
Hand pulled at the Anchor, Birmingham during their "Wheat Weekend". Pink colouring, but not technicolour, well not in this light anyway. Frilly lacing. Hops to start, then some sweetness that doesnít linger, with a fairly bitter finish. Deliciously balanced - fruity bitter crispness.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 27, 2007
Tasted at the Luton Beer Festival, clear and very pink with a white filmy head. A sweet fruit aroma of boiled sweets. A light mouthfeel, a bit bland in flavour, like watered down cranberry juice.
