2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Robe rosée foncée, mousse moyenne. Nez alliant fruits rouges acidulés, fraise, note lactée. Bouche désagréable qui évoque plus le sirop antibiotique amer que la bière. Insupportable pour moi.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle sampled at Kulminator. Pours cloudy dull amber. Aroma of urinal cakes, nettles and peas. Flavour is over moderate sweet and a touch acidic. Sickly nastiness in the palate making me feel nauseous. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall, terrible. It starts bad with the aroma, but the palate is sickening.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Spelt-beer based fruit beer launched after the original Leirekens were restyled (in 2008) and trying to exploit the then-popular trend of combining different "wood fruit" tastes into one beer. This is based on Leireken Witte Spelt and uses six different extracts of red and dark fruits. Light pink head over a deep ruby red, hazy beer. Artificial aroma of red fruit jam, grenadine, pomegranate, elderberry coughing syrup, sour cherry a bit less pronunciated, sourish spelt, some spicy hints (pepper, ginger). Fruit sweet taste, artificial but still on an acceptable level, but sugary cloying, drying in the finish with a light acidity, but everything remains dominated by the fruit extracts. I never liked witbier-based fruit beers and spelt beer to me is usually just a variation on witbier, so...

De minsten van alle Leireken-bieren. Dit was echt absoluut mijn smaak niet.

Decent fruit beer, at least the fruits taste quite real and not so artificial.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
pours dark pink, pink head
smells like heavy fruits, some sugar
taste is very sugary , liquid sugar-water, with some chemical fruits ( cherry up front, but with a back of more fruit-juices . )
pretty damn arteficial .. no chemical-sprayed fruits were used . i can believe that , since i dont think ANY real fruit is used here . dont get me wrong, its not THE worst drink ever, but beer that dont taste like beer, i rate in order how much i apreciate it . as a non-beer-drink . and even than, this aint my favourite .
its just to damn sugary, i’m sorry ..

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rouge foncée opaque, effervescence très légère, mousse rouge clair persistante. L’ensemble des fruits s’impose d’emblée avec, hélas, une prédominance de sureau. Sans adjonction de sucre, cela donne une honnête bière aux fruits rouges, de loin supérieure à la Leffe Ruby à laquelle on peut l’apparenter.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 25 cl. Pours reddish brown with a medium pink head and an aroma of Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte. The taste is very sweet, with lots of sweet red fruits and some malts. Not really bad, but a fruit beer should have a lot more tartness.

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
pink head, disappears quickly without lacing. dark ruby red colour. aroma of cassis, raspberry, elderberry, cherry. (so far, so good, but ...). taste starts off with the fruits of the aroma but quickly followed by a very unpleasant bitter wry aftertaste that just lasts. medium body and carbonation, thin mouthfeel. just awful, the only thing remotely nice about this beer is perhaps the label on the bottle. bottle 25 cl - best before april 2014

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Scent of berries and dimetap, flavor of grape children’s chewable medicine tablets. Disgusting. Can’t believe it is organic and they miffed it.
