1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
13/08 0.5 l can from a Billa in Villach. It poured clear dark red body with small head. Berries aroma, sour cherry, some yeast. Weaker flavor, slightly fruity but also malty beer is felt much more than in citrus radlers and does not go very well with tart blackcurrant. Generally acidic with only a bit of sweetness, which is pronounced in the short finish. Kind of interesting, but didn’t like it too much anyway.

Can in Vienna on 10 June 2011, m.h. bis 03/12. Nose is straight up Johannisbeeren, perhaps a little Holunder and lime to accent, but certainly no beer there. Taste of J-b and grape Kool-Aid and lime. Thin, swishy body. Meh.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Canned 500ml. -Courtesy of and shared with Marko (thanks!)
Ruby red coloured, small airy pale pink head, dry blackcurrant and meat in the nose. Pretty the same in the taste with more pronounced artificial sweetness. Repulsive radler.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
0.5l can from Graz. Poured a ruby red colour with a pink head. Meaty blackcurrant nose. I don’t like blackcurrant. Milt blackcurrant taste, not as bad as the taste. Again, I don’t like blackcurrant. This’d probably make for a good drink for someone who likes his/her radlers beerless in taste and for someone who likes blackcurrant. Unfortunately, I don’t. So don’t take my rating entirely seriously.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0,5 l Billa, little village near the Hungarian border, Austria.
Poured red with a light purple tone, small foamy light pink head. Wild berries in the aroma, sourish peel character. Minimal beer in the flavor, fruity character dominates the mouthfeel, some artifical feeling in the background. Thirst quenching, but no beer characters.

Can from Billa, Hainburg. Ruby color with small beige head. Black currant in aroma and taste. No hops, no malt. Quite refreshing but definitely not beer.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can: Dark red color. Sweet, fruity and sugary nose of black currants. Flavor is also quite sweet with intensive notes of black currant lemonade. No beer character but thirst quentching.
