Rob_D_UK (1026) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Pours a clear red/brown with a white head. Cherry aroma with a sweet cherry taste. It’s no delirium red but it’s a fruit beer I’d return to.

MarkoNm (917) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 22, 2015
Pours a clear ruby color, topped with an average off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma, strawberry and other berries. Taste is quite sweet, some brady and soury notes also present. Not bad for a fruit beer, although perhaps a bit too sweet.

200ml bottle. Ruby color with slightly tinted head. Smells like syrup raspberry and strawberry. Taste is sweet artificial fruit. Not a fan.

Woc (17) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 10, 2015
Didn’t want to buy a "framboise" and bought this by accident. Very strong raspberry aroma, pink head. The bear itself is completely red - maybe good idea for Xmas special but I didn’t appreciate it. Taste very neutral - cannot say if sweet or bitter, more like nothing... Ending is a bit bitter on the back of the tongue but nothing special. Hmm, not going to buy this one again. If I want kriek or other fruit beer, I will choose something proper and not this.

rayaron (417) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - JAN 10, 2015
Bottle sample. Thanks beerandbeyond for this prize from the Agnes Pub end of 2014 party! A bit hazy amber-orange with no head. Sweet aroma, very fruity (mostly strawberry and cherry), a bit nutty. Very sweet flavor, fruity (strawberry, cherry and some pear), light citrus sourness, a bit syrupy. Moderate carbonation, light-bodied.

boto (1898) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JAN 9, 2015
50cl can from French food store: This one pours a fairly clear ruby color. There was a bit of a pinkish head on it that leaves some lacing. An interesting aroma. Getting mainly sweeter raspberries and strawberries as the main component. Also getting a bit of a caramel malt in the background. Interesting taste. Getting some red berries, but just a bit of sweetness some them. Tasting a bit of a abbey beer behind it. Have they taken their abbey beer and added some fruit flavor to it? My guess is probably. It rates just an OK. I’d rather have a real lambic than this.

zvsn (755) - ISRAEL - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle sample. Thanks rayaron. Clear red with a small off-white head. Aroma of yeast, strawberries, a bit funky. Sweet artificial flavors of berries, sugary, cough syrup, bubblegum, sticky finish.

MatthijsE (907) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle @ home. Clear light red color with a nice white head and thick lacing. Aroma is sweet fruit. Flavor very sweet at first but mellows.

Marcius (231) - Geneva, SWITZERLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Appearance with ruby color and medium head. Aroma of bubblegum, vanilla and caramel. Taste: heavy sweet. On the palate, it has a fizzy carbonation and long sweet finish. A bit too sweet for my taste.

ThirstyBird (1754) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - DEC 23, 2014
Purchased on our Christmas trip to France. Pours with a pinkish hue and a tan with some pink in it as well. The smell is perfume, artificial fruit smell. The Tate is sweet fruit syrup, cough drops, cherry, strawberry... Too sweet and artificial tasting. Light+ in body with average carbonation. Will certainly never buy this one again... A few sips and the rest goes down the drain.
