I drank this beer chilled and really enjoyed it. I haven’t had any of their beers since the trouble, but this reminded me of them, if in a subdued way. Lacking the sourness and the acidity, Fruitesse offered a soft, semi-sweet (barely sweet) all natural drinking experience. Not a hint of artificial flavours, this delicate beer is to be sipped and enjoyed, ideal for summer evenings by the tennis court! Bottle-conditioned I think...

Nice clear ruby red body, no head. Strawberry bubblegum nose. Aroma is bubblegum, strawberry, raspberry, cherry, and elderberry. Too sweet for my taste. Thin body, lively carbonation. Refreshing summer drink.

250 mL bottle. Says on the bottle to serve "on the rocks." Maybe next time. Bright red, with a small pink head. smells candy-fruity. Tastes sweet - I can pick out the cherries and raspberries. Fruity and sweet. Not quite candy or fake. But sweet. Too sweet.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bright red. Pink head. Totally artificial and unfresh aroma of raspberry bonbon and diet raspberry squash. Artificial sweetness and equally artificial raspberry bonbon in taste. Unfresh mouthfeel. This is alcopops and neither kriek nor beer. Unfresh aftertaste that lingers on.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled from Mitra Bunnik as Liefmans Fruitesse, large sample, served in a TeKu. Clear ruby color, medium frothy pink head. Aroma of huge sweet candy cherry, haribo in a glass, super sugary and super fruity. Taste is not as sweet as I expected, but still pretty sweet, , slight sour even, quite fruity. After a few sips Im getting used to the sweetness and enjoying the fruity notes more, but it still is liquid candy.
