2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark amber with thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is obvious of fruit, mostly the berries. It’s hard to rate this beer really, it’s a fruit beer.... lots of berries, nice and sour, gets your girlfriend drunk. A panty dropper, you will. It works, trust me. Not my type of beer though.

Bottle bought at Ölbutikken in May 2013.
Clear ruby red with a small head. Sweet aroma and taste of strawberries, bread, notes of earth and light blueberries. Soft and very easy to drink. 8% alcohol? Impossible to notice that.

11-MAY-2013, bottle @home, from Řlbutikken.
Pale, clear red with off-white head.
Aroma is raspberry, parfumed and artificial. Taste the same. Sweet, no bitterness. Like red sodapop.
Thin body, watery. Waste of money..

Pours a clear amber body with a fairly small head. Smells of blueberry and raspberry, not too strong, but a soft malt and fruity aroma. Tastes of berries and malts, Overall a fun drink with plenty of flavor

Some what bland but a solid choice for a person that enjoys fruity beers. Wish the taste was a little stronger though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to umich03jm. Hazy ruby red color. Minimal white head, fades to very little. Nice fruit in the nose, smells like a strawberry cheesecake, or the fruit filling from some kind of pastry. A lot less fruit in the flavor, though, that’s kind of surprising. I mean, it’s still got a lot of berry flavor, pretty much all berry flavor, but I was expecting it to be a berry bomb at this ABV, it drinks like a much lighter fruit beer. Alcohol is well hidden. I was expecting this to be much sweeter, too. This flavor overall is very natural, nothing artificial tasting, which is very cool. Natural fruity sweetness, lightly tart. Nice long aftertaste, where the individual fruits show themselves a lot more. Rye is subtle amidst the fruit, but you notice some of its lightly toasty spicy bready influence in the overall background. Good crisp lighter carbonation. Medium to bigger body. Dry in the finish. Totally not what I expected, but totally awesome. This is a great fruit beer. Would love to try the imperial version
