1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a clear red ish darker pink beer with a medium light light pink head, which disappears pretty slow.
The smell of this beer reaches further than only the glass.
The nose is instantly hit with some kind of framboise drink yoghurt kind of smell. So overall this is another sweet brew.
Smelling this sweet mess from closer by there is an overwhelming sweetness of framboise and a hint of malts and something creamy.
Taste is very sweet, ough, vey sweet... Framboise (hehe), candy sweets, artificial sweets, hint of something light malty, guess those are sweet (sticky) malts and belnd in the sweetness, wherein the sweetness dominates. Too sweet for me.
In the aftertaste the sweetness seems to disappear and leaves a normal framboise taste with again some malts and a hint of herbs.
Medium carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a light creamy texture.
Overall it’s very sweet, there are some light creamy hints with something malty, but it is dominated by this sweetness. Once and not again!

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Deep red color, big, fizzy head. The nose is sweet and aggressive - cherries and sugar. The taste is very Sweet, without any hit of tart or bitter flavors that would lend a bit more balance. The body’s well carbonated, but a bit thin and unstructured. Overall, this wouldn’t be bad for someone with a sweet tooth, but the lack of balance loses it points.

In bottle. Pours an orange - pink colour with a thick, light pink head. Aroma of artificial raspberry and candy sugar. Similar sweet raspberry flavour with caramel and a little lemon. A foamy mouth-feel with moderate carbonation. Not my thing.

Ruikt heerlijk! Ik heb nog een beetje bier in het glas laten zitten om er aan te blijven ruiken. De smaak daarentegen was wat minder, maar nog steeds wel lekker.

Nice colour. Far too sweet to be enjoyable. More like liquid candy than beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at the brewery. At least I think it was, but it might have been from a bottle. It was served with a dense, off-white, finger-thick head over a reddish brown body. The aroma has lots of raspberry, both artificial and natural, but with emphasis on the artificial. Some almond hints. The flavor goes in the same direction, some hints of natural raspberry, but mostly artificial, some sourness too. Sticky, medium body fullness. Berries in the finish. I finished my sample, but it’s way, way too sweet for my likings. 110501
