Red colored beer with a fruity nose. Slightly sweetish flavor. A bit artificial. Some tartness in the background coming from the spelt malts. Dry sweetish fruity aftertaste.

jgb9348 (4751) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Slightly cloudy pink coloured body with a bit of a copper glow and a thin, fast-dying tan head with definite pink tints. Aroma of strawberries, raspberries, sour notes, yeast and a bit of alcohol and grass coming up as well. Medium-bodied; Strong saccharin and aspartame flavours with a definite fruity note and a even more pungent grassy and herbal kick. Aftertaste shows a lot of sugars, a ton of fruit and even more pungent and not-too-pleasing tastes. Overall, not a horrible beer, but not one that I’d get again, even if it were an option! I sampled this 25 cL bottle purchased from Beer Mania in Bruxelles, Belgium on 30-June-2012 for €2,25 (date on red cap of 02-08-2012, lot 1 on side of bottle) sampled at home on the other side of the Atlantic in Washington on 03-January-2013.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2013 Bottle @ home shared with Thompson. Re-rate of the only beer I’ve ever given a 0.5 score. It had to be hopelessly infected that last time. This time the aroma had red fruits, sweetness, lightly tart and a bit artificial. Taste is a mix of sweetness and red fruits, a bit like cassis lemonade.. Average body and carbonation. Totally different from last time, as you can read below. Previous rating (June 17th 2012) 25cl bottle @ home shared with Thompson. When I took off the cap a part of the glass from the bottle was torn off with it. Best before date did however say November 2012. Hazy orange to amber color, no head at all. Big chunks floating in it. Smell is absolutely ridiculous: pure cleaning acid, vinegar, paint or nailpolish remover. They can’t be serious about this, this has to be infected. No joke: I puked. [1-1-1-1-1=0.5]

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
Mondial de la bière 2012 - Étrange bière orangée, voilée, sans col aucun. Des arômes pimentés et poivrés avec des notes poussiéreuse. Assez acide et très sucrée. Aqueuse, moyennement effervescente, se termine sur de longs arômes invraisemblables.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a pinkish yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of cherries with a little bit of bread from the malt. The flavor is more of the same, with the cherries really standing out above the other fruits. There is also some malt character and a hint of funk. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Countbeer (4483) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 4, 2012
Bottle: Medium to bigger pretty vast ashy light rose head on top of a murky deep dark pink to almost purple colored beer. The aroma is mostly dusty red fruit with some hints of herbs, bush and plant hints. Flavour is dominated by earth with hints of red fruit, some cherries, some strawberries, some berries, hint of bitterness, some sweetness but lesser present than the sweetness. There is even some hint of sour while there is absolutely nothing sour. Medium carbo, tingly light spicy mouthfeel, just a medium body and a watery texture. Bit of a strange mix but pretty decent.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 2, 2012
750ml Bottle: Aroma of vinegar, berries, and plastic. Poured orange/grapefruit in color with a huge, creamy, loose, foamy, fluffy, gassy, off-white head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very sparkling. Full of tiny and small-sized particles throughout. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of berries, plastic, wood, and chemicals. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average to lively carbonation. Plastic and berry finish.

750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Deep purple brew, pink head. Nose is very fruity with strawberry coming to the forefront. Tart with lots of ripe berries and some earth. Some strange off flavors present - it tastes like a garden smells.
