3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fine fruit taste, with little malt or hops. Clear reddish color, with modest head and thin body. The least impressive of the Liefmans that I have tried.

Had it as On the Rocks at the Belgian Beer Weekend. Pours a deep red with aromas of light cherries and assorted other berries. The body was medium and was sour, tart. Cherries seeped through enough and it was smoothe and easy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
250ml bottle from Waitrose:
Very sweet smelling & is a mix of cherry and berries such as raspberry. The finish smells quite sour and tart like towards the end.
Cherry red colour that is clear & forms a tiny, bubbly pinkish white head around the brim that goes fast.
A good mix of cherry, raspberry and a syrupy sweetness. The finish is slightly sour and has a fizzy soft drink feel to it; it’s better than I had expected.
Smooth & light bodied with a lingering sweetness and good carbonation.
Not a bad tasting drink and more appealing that I thought it would be, it goes down well and is rounded off by a good, sour finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to the kind soul who opened this at the last Tampa Crew tasting. Pours a light pink color with a white head. Nose is kool-aid, sweetener, table sugar, and berry puree. Flavor is similar with lots of red kool-aid, berry puree, and sweetness all over. Light in body and very very uber sweet.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours dark red with a thin pink fully receding head. Notes of sweet strawberry, cherry, and tart fruits. Sweet and acidic, like sour candy. Thin to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overly sweet and artificial tasting, not good. I would not have bought this if I knew it had Ace K in it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0.25L bottle purchased from Jacobs på Holtet, as Liefmans Fruitesse. Pale ruby colored body. Pink-shaded blond top. Sappy fruit-candy aroma. Sourish, artificial berry-fruity flavor with a sourish twist. Light in body. Watered down mouthfeel, watered down ending. Very hard to appreciate.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap. Had this as Liefmans Fruitesse. Pours a dark ruby color with e medium creamy pinkish head. Aroma is 100% fruit syrup: mixed red fruits. Taste is similar, but syrupiness is subtler, giving some room for a slight acidic note. Lively carbonated. Thin body. Not my favourite.
