3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a raspberry red color from the bottle. Smells of sweet fruity flavors, mostly raspberry and black cherry. Very fruity flavor, starts out very sweet and ends with a bit of a sour note. Overall a bit of an artificial flavor but may be enjoyable especially for those who dont enjoy a regular beer.

25 cl bottle @ home as ”Liefmans Fruitesse”, BBE 03/2014
Aroma is sweet and candy-like with strawberries and cherry juice. Flavour is sweet and sticky with lollipop-like candy, cherries and some strawberries. An oversweet soda pop. Not the worst of this kind though.

A burgundy red ale with a thin pinkish lacing white head. In aroma, loads of berries, cherries, pop like but not cloying. In mouth, a sweet fruity pop like beer with nice little acidic points. On tap at loose moose.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2014 It was recommended on the bottle to pour this on ice, which I didn’t. Ruby with pink head. Lots of sweet red fruits, not much else. Maybe a touch of tartness. Medium bodied with nice sparkly carbonation. More alcoholic soda pop than beer, but quite enjoyable (I like good sodas).

Extremer Himbeer/Waldbeergeruch. Der auch im Geschmack. Leicht Süßstoff, aber "Biernormalrestsüß". Kaum Bittere, angenehmes Brett.

Review according to BJCP 2008 guidelines (20) - Leifmans Fruitesse.
Aroma: sweet aroma of cherry and other red fruits with an aftertaste of raspberry. sweetness maybe due to the use of fruit concentrates. No malt of hop aromas present.
Appearance: clear ruby red with some orange tint and pink head with fair retention.
Taste: sweet flavour of cherries dominates.
Palate: smooth medium-low body with medium carbonation levels. Body not so thin maybe because of the use of adjuncts.
Overall: a very enjoyable fruit beer but the extra sweetness may give the impression of an artificial product.

Clear dark red color, thin tan head that disappeared instantly. Medium body, average carbonation. Strong cherry aroma. Tolerably sweet, it could use more sourness. OK fruit beer.
