18-JAN-2012, bottle @ulkløbben meeting, @Henrik.
Red, clear, no head.
Sweet raspberry aroma. Taste is sweet with a touch of tartness. Fresh, not really funky, some tart cherries. Medium to soft carbonation. Really too sweet. Simple. Disappointed.

What an aroma! Sweet cranberries, strawberries and well berries. Good body on it. Nice tartness, though a tad artificial tasting. More berries. Effervescent. A bit of time on this could bump it up to classic status. Great flemish red.

Thanks Vinnie. Red with nice bubbly head. Aroma is all sorts of fruity, cranberry, raspberry, little bit of marzipan maybe. Taste very nice, lots of fruit, raspberry at the front, tiny bit of sourness, very nice. Maybe blueberry there too. Really fruity. Lovely. Nice spritziness. Nice and dry.
