This beer seems to be a marketing construct. Interesting red colour, very tangy fruit aroma which follows to a raspberry-and-cherry fruit flavour. Quite sweet. Certainly drinkable but disappointing when far superior Belgian beers are available. Seems to be made specifically as a crossover beer, or to attract those who don’t usually drink beer?

stravale (2062) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Enniskillen [240614]
Tizer red, large pink white head, good lacing
Aroma of red berries, slight fruit sherbert, floral, bit perfumy
Taste of soft red fruits, perfumy, floral, fairly sweet, slightly odd artificial notes in there, like an alcopop, flavour strangely ok though
Palate - soft carb, medium body, quite sticky, fairly sweet but not too much. Finish as main flavour, getting a slight hint of parma violets which is odd, slight bitter chemical linger
Overall - OK, I wouldn’t get this again, but I didn’t think it was as shit as most of the rates say here

Sissio (541) - Orsenigo, ITALY - JUL 21, 2014
Clear pale ruby, pinkish head. Malty aroma with syrup raspberries. Almost watery, sweet syrup taste of red fruit. Needs to be drunk quite chilled to overwhelm the sweetness. Stucchevole.

ianwelby (433) - SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Clear pinkish beer with a peachy sort of smell. Sweet with a touch of hop. A little sickly but it’s perfectly decent for a refreshing beer on a sunny day.

johndoughty (3880) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Bottle. Purple appearance and the cork flew out of the bottle when opened. But it certainly wasn’t a sparkling wine-more like Ribena with an attitude. Not undrinkable just embarrassing to think it has the Leffe label on it. Another reason to hate InBev.

SarkyNorthener (1728) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from tesco. Ruby red beer with small head. Aroma of dry raspberries and a touch of sourness. Taste is artificial raspberries,malts and a little wood. Light carbonation, not great.

250ml en France. Pours clear and red with a quickly dispersing head. Very sweet and fruity, with slight soapy tones. Very enjoyable

Philym (944) - St Neots, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Appearance: Clear light ruby with pinky white head. Aroma: Strawberry, raspberry, elderberry, boiled sweet, candy sugar, mineral, spicy, syrupy note. Taste: Low/medium sweetness, low bitterness and sourness. Palate: Medium thick grainy texture, light body, average carbonation, abrupt fruity finish, with a sweet bitterness. Comments: Tasty and glass lace. A bit like a soft drink with a lack of real fruit.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle, from Tesco. Strawberry brown, fluffy but quickly reducing white head and moderate condition. Fruity berry, peppery spice and floral soapiness in the nose, soft and artificial fruitiness in the mouth with hints of raspberry and strawberry, quite sweet but with a gentle earthy bitterness, some saccharin notes and a soapy fruitiness in the finish.

dreamer (61) - PORTUGAL - JUN 2, 2014
33cl bottle thanks to ruigo. Red ruby color, with a very small pink head. Not much carbonate. Light to medium body, between watery and creamy. Intense flavor of red fruits, spices and some light sour aroma of moist wood. Well balanced and refreshing for summer combination.
