4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the hopcat in the summer of 09 thanks to the generous bartender. Red orange in color with a thin head that laces. Sweet rich juicy sour fruits of raspberry, cherry and blueberry in the aroma. Medium creamy body that’s thick for a fruit beer. Juicy frut flavors similar to the aroma but really juicy. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from kihoskh. #773 of 1008 produced. bottled 2007.
As adviced on the beer information pamphlet, the beer was sampled while listening to The Doors, The soft Parade.
Slightly cloudy red-amber, smooth beige head.
Aroma is sweet fruity - red fruits like strawberries, raspberries etc. alcohol, jam, wine gums. seems a bit "tired".
flavor is malty, bitter malty, red fruity sweetness, jam, frut peel bitterness, Alc. only noticeable as a sort of bitterness, I would prefer red wine, which the taste resembles slighthly. The bitterness and fruitiness resembles a little bit a belgian fruit lambic, but then - the sour part of fruit lambic is not here at all, leaving only a bittersweet ripe fruity flavor with alc. notes.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2nd June 2009
The bottle (386 of 1005) says this was also made with raspberries. Cloudy brown beer. Crisp and dry palate. The four fruits are perfectly balanced - nothing dominates, just a nice generic fruits of the forest flavour, but completey unsweet. After the fruit there is a sourish rye malt finish but no rye spice. Unusual but would have preferred the fruit to be sweeteded a little.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to mcallister for this extra.
Pours a beautiful pink ruby with a nice lightly-tinted head that has a bit of a reddish character. Nose is soft fruits with quite a few different berries; the strawberry really came through to me with the blueberry coming through to a lesser extent. Nice blueberry and strawberry flavor throughout. In the end, the feel was pretty decent and it drank well enough, but the unique concept only lasted for a bit before this started to taste less interesting and wasn’t much to keep me drinking.
