4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
ruby mahogany with a dense pink head. wonderful soft full body with medium-high carbonation. served chilled rather than cold, and poured a bit roughly, the mouthfeel is full and round and perfect.
aroma: a bouquet of sweet ripe berries and whole cherries over a dark bready malt background with notes of chocolate and caramel. there is a bit of basement yeast character, but no sour.
taste: exactly the same as aroma.
i would like some sourness in there, but it is quite pleasant as it is, and sufficiently complex. it says fruity and sweet on the label, so i find it very difficult to find any flaw in this, it just needs to be treated and served appropriately for what it is. it would be a great treat for some non beer-fans i know, and fun for pairing or even blending. maybe too sweet by itself but excellent with some mildly tangy soft cow/sheep/goat cheeses.

Almost like bubble gum for adults, this is a deliciously perfumed fruity beer. Feels sparkly and light, like a breezy warm late summers evening. Good red colour.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of my favorite beers of all time. Pours a dark red/pink color. Aroma is fruity, predominantly cherries. Delicious, not too sweet so feel free to have a few without feeling like you might contract diabetes. Can’t say enough about this beer. Best enjoyed over ice but not necessary and doesn’t retract from the beer at all if you don’t.

I loved this beer. Bottle shared with northropfrye at Beer Bros. in Regina. A sweet and very fruity beer, true to its name. Excellent dessert beer.

A bit thinner and more light-fruited than e.g. Lindemans, this is nonetheless an absolutely fantastic beer

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft as Liefman’s Fruitesse @ Birch Bar Norfolk VA: Aroma is a delightful mix of Skittles and Jolly Ranchers, cherry, lime, raspberry, and orange are discernible. Crystal clear ruby colored. Flavor is of a bag of sweet tarts, mainly raspberry and strawberry. Kind of a girly beer, but delicious. Fruity and complex, I could literally drink this all day.

Strong fruit aroma with a red appearance. The blends of fruit are very smooth, tasting like a mixed fruit cobbler. The berry flavors are bold and refreshing.
