If it didnít have the artificial sweetener it probably would be very good. Tastes like berry flavored medicine chews.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Small bottle as "Fruitesse," from Philippos in Coral Bay. Looks, smells, and tastes exactly like raspberry Jell-o in a glass but with a light fizz. Has no head, looks like a sparkling fruit soda and the color is actually nice. The friendly raspberry jello flavors bring back some memories of childhood but as a beer itís too saccharine, candylike, and immature to be taken seriously or seriously enjoyed.

[3/4/11] Bottle at the brewery in Oudenaarde. Clear deep red with a pinkish head. Sweet aroma and flavor with cherries and sugar. Light-medium-bodied. OK but like a kidsí drink.

A beer flavoured with the juices of red berries. Average as far as flavour goes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2011 Bottle. Pours into a NB tulip glass a clear red color with a 1 finger pink foamy head. Sweet tart aroma with just a huge mix of fruit; cheery and strawberry I smell the most along with some raspberry. Light mouthfeel with carbonation. This is a seriously sweet beer...seriously. Some syrup like quality as well. Lots of fruit flavors and thatís about it. Ends with a lingering sweetness. Some lace left on the glass. The sweetness is overpowering and not to my complete liking but I will say that this beer to me isnít as bad as the ratings suggest.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Ruby red color. Aroma has cheap sweets. Red fruit sweets flavor, quite artificial and sugary. Toothachingly sweet. Very short aftertaste. Palate destroyer.

Intense fruit aroma and taste, love the berry red colour and pink head, thin and fizzy, tart and sweet, great way to cleanse the palate after dinner... yummy desert beer. 250ml is sufficient!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2011 Bottle (in NZ). Big perfumy nose, syrupy raspberries and cherries. Jam-like. Tastes better than it smells. The carbonation cuts through the fruit, along with a gentle bitterness. The finish slightly sours. Disappointing considering the rest of the range - why did you do dat?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The pour is a clear ruby color with a masive pink head and a surprising amount of lacing.
S: Definitely a lot of fruits going on here, certainly raspberries and some cherry syrup. Although itís not in here, there seems to be cranberry. A bit of a jello note to it, too. Maybe a little cough syrup. Overall, it smells like a fruit soda.
T: Tastes like a fruit soda, too. Lots of raspberry and a pretty substantial amount of cherry. A very slight tartness on the back end and maybe a bit of oak. Some more of that jello flavor going on here.
M: The body is medium with a moderate to high level of carbonation.
D: Not exactly what I was expecting, but this was a little too sweet and soda-like for my tastes.
