2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a dark but clear purple with a nice pink head, good retention and lacing... smells a touch to generic for me, candy, sugar, strawberry, and raspberries... man this is sweet, tastes like raspberry cough syrup, very distinct strawberry notes as well... I usually like sweeter fruit beers, but this a whole another level

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ Baran, Bergen. Pours a deep pink body with a medium white head that fades off pretty fast. Nose is almond extract, marzipan, intensely sweet cherries and hints of raspberry and strawberry. Taste is mostly dominated by a very sweet and slightly artificial-tasting cherry flavor, with only hints of other red berries. Although this is way too sweet for me, it’s carries just about enough natural flavors to it to save it from a really low rating.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bottle purchased on 05/18/2011 at Co-op Liqour Store in Calgary, AB. Colour: Well...red of course, cough syrup red at that. Nose: Cough syrup cherry now. Strawberry is there, but hard to pull out over the dominant cherry. Glucose too. Taste: High sweet, light bitter, medium sour. Very sweet as expected. Good choice by only putting it in a 250ml bottle otherwise it would have been too much. It is what it says, it says what it is. Fruit, fruit, fruit.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Süßer, sogar sehr süßer Antrunk mit Kirschnoten, die sogar weitestgehend natürlich wirken. Erst im Mittelteil erscheinen sie etwas chemisch, Beerennoten schließen sich an. Süffig aber sehr süß, zum Ende wirkt das Getränk wieder natürlich und somit bekömmlich. Wenig herb. Gelungene Fruchtschorle. 10/8/9/7/5/8

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a 750 ml bottle at TWCP Beerfest 2011. Pours a rich, cloudy ruby color with a small pink-tinted head. Big sweet cherry nose, with only a little tartness but mostly dry sweetness. Flavor of sweet cherries, faint tart cherries, dry doughy malts, oak, and minerals. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, dry mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Unique fruit beer, and really nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
These beers aren’t for me regardless of how well they are made. I’ll say that up front. My opinion doesn’t mean you won’t love it!
I found the beer to have a powerful fruity aroma that made me thing I was literally smelling fruit extract.
The taste was extremely sweet and fruity and I couldn’t enjoy anything past the second sip.
Carbonation was quite lively and the mouthfeel was good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Botle, as "Liefmans Fruitesse", smallish head, hazy lightish red colour with some pink streaks, aroma is a melaqnge of red fruits, a bit one dimensional, flavour is also red frutis with just a hint of tartness, but still more an alcoholic fruit bevarage then a fruit beer. Mediocre.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big bottle from Liquor Loft. Clear read pour with a big sturdy light pink head. Aroma is like sweet tart candy - the red ones. Taste is artificially sweet berries - cherry and strawberry. More like a berry soda than a beer.
