1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Rose gold with a white head that lasts OK. Smells of red cordial in lager (what Australians would call a firetruck). Very sweet with the vague (raspberry? strawberry? cherry?) berry flavour pretty much overwhelming the beer. There’s no discernible nastiness at all from the beer and I guess it cuts the sweetness a tad at the finish. For what it is it’s not that bad.

Bottle from unrecalled source, backlog notes. Poured a clear amber colour with minimal white head. Aroma is syrupy sweet raspberry and strawberry. Odd bitter finish to it. Not great.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared at the chriso Snow Tasting, London - this one I brought! Pours clear gold with a large, white froth cap. Fruity, with lots of strawberry and raspberry in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with sugary berries and light bitter pits. Light bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Sweet berry finish, a bit artificial, with more raspberry and strawberry notes. Not awesome.

330ml bottle (Snow@ChrisO)
Sweet sherbert aroma. Fake raspberry taste. Sweet shit. So freaking artificial. Gag-inducing shit. Fuck you SABMiller.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml can, bought at a polish shop in Arnhem. ABV 4,5%. Poured into a Guinness pint glass.
Very nice appearance, with deep orange copper colour and a big white head, two fingers tall, soapy with good retention. It even left some lacing around the glass.
Aroma is fruity as expected, with lots of sugars. Smells like candy, the kind of sweets you know all the aromas are artificial bt you still want some.
Taste is quite sweet of course, with lots of fruits notes. Cherries, strawberries, forest fruits, you name it. But it doesn’t have that sickening sweetness other beers have, so here’s a positive point.
Very thin on the body with light carbonation.
Overall, I got more than I expected from this one. First, it’s a beer mix but with a beer percentage of 94%, so at least you get a good amount of beer. Then, I was sure it was going to be one of those fruit beers targeted mostly to women, but it surpised me pleasanlty, as I said it doesn’t have this sickening sweetness but on the contrary it manages to be refreshing. Long story short, a very good fruit beer/beer mix and at last one which worths its money.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to Leighton. It pours clear light orange with a small white head. The nose is Parma Violets, orange, sweet peach and orange. The taste is sweet orange, apricot, white sugar, boiled sweets, Irn Bru and metal. Light-medium body and average carbonation. Pretty artificial and nasty.
