15/XI/12 - 75cl bottle from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: XI/13 (2012-1274)

Little cloudy orange to pink beer, big solid creamy head, stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, red forest fruits, bit sweet. MF: lots of carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity start, red forest fruits, raspberries, other fruits, very fresh, bit of citrus, bitter hops. Aftertaste: still fruity, little bitter, hoppy touch, citrus, red fruits, lemon drops. Really well balanced! I bet a lot of girls who now drink the overly sweetened kriek beers, would like this better.

Light, refreshing, slightly fruity. I like the taste of this yeast. Cloudy pour, color of pink grapefruit. I’d drink it again.

JorisPPattyn (7940) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 21, 2012
Towering, very light pink and variably bubbled head over fully hazy pinkish amber beer. Very demure nose. Bit spicy, maybe some green (unripe) berries. Faintly fruity with fruitacidity. Impossible to say which fruit. Wheat seems to come forward. Quite slick, velvety and very carbonated. Trials @ Cantillon decades ago showed that blackberries have little to deliver aroma- or flavourwise, even little colour. Proven again.

sebletitje (6711) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2012
75cl bottle from Hopduvel shared with Tomaz. Orangée/ambrée, col épais blanc. Arôme est fruité avec ce bouquet de baies/mûres rappelant le jus pressé. Palais présente une fine amertume fruitée, terreuse et baies/mûres. Brève amertume houblonnée complète le tout et un malt léger. Malheureusement la mûre ne procure pas un changement radical en fin de ouche, ce qui est ok pour le niveau d’alcool de cette bière. Au final, sympa sans vraiment changer le style, ais a au moins le mérite de ne pas être fruité aux extraits faux de fruits.

Hazy darker amber coloured beer with small white head and no carbonation visible. Fruited (red fruit) aroma. Medium creamed and sparkling palate. Finish is fruited sour hinted.

Martinus (2860) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2014
Hazy pinkish salmon colour, white head. Light aroma, quite fruity, canned strawberries. Light sweet, fruity flavour. Quite dry. Finish fruity, canned strawberry, rhubarb. Starts out quite fresh and decent, but a full 75cL bottle is too much, it could do with a bit more body imho.
(75cL bottle @ home)
