3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a thin to medium density hazy on top purple/pink with more clarity toward the bottom revealing lots of floating sediment. Aroma is all fruit, sugary sweet with lots if berry notes, sour cherry, black berry, medicinal cough syrup some old wet oak. Nice bubbly carbonation wih a lighter body and a sugary finish. Flavor is overly sugary with some cheap berry notes, cough medicine drops, touch of old pie. Very sweet overall and seems to be enhanced by sugar.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours light red/pink with a frothy white head. Aroma is a blend of fruity sweetness. Light bodied, very easy drinking and effervescent. No real bear taste, just fruit. Too sweet.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flute pour of hazed pinkish red with a fluffed white head. It literally smells exactly what I would imagine the color pink to smell like. Along with strawberry and raspberry. Flavor is tart with fruity notes, strawberry and raspberry. Lighter medium body. not horrible, but I’m good with one.

Had this bottle sat in the fridge for ages and finally gave it a go tonight - lovely punch in the nose with strawberry jam there and some sickly (but nice) forest fruits in there. A bit sweet, but altogether a pleasant drink. Far nicer than that dreadful Früli.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
25 cl bottle. Ruby red body, small white head. Aroma has all kinds of berries, mostly cherry and strawberry. Sweet fruity taste with cherry and strawberry. Finish offers some light sourness. Not too complex but more importantly it’s very refreshing. I don’t mind the sweetness at all.

Enjoyed this with my friends, Reg, Sam, and Chris. Not use to this style. Bright Pink with Pink head. Bold fruit nose of strawberries. Cotton candy with vanilla flavors with strawberry, and raspberry. Bubbly. Can’t say I would want this beer again. But it was not unpleasant.

330ml bottle (Sinilind, Tallinn) - as Fruitesse
total fruit explosion. In your face raspberry, cherry, and strawberry. Quite OTT, but also quite delicious. Sweet slick palate, but some carbonation crispens it up nicely. Taste not quite so OTT, a very fruity beer, sweet too, but surprisingly well balanced, considering. Beer isn’t so prominant, but isn’t so important in a beer like this. Hedonistically, I enjoyed it , and it’s well crafted, but it too sweet to be something I’d chose to drink often. Could be a good way of weaning cider cows off the crappy baltic ciders.
