2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy reddish brown color; light pink head, big. Very nice aroma of blueberry. The flavor is simple but ok, with moderate sweetness and some fruitness, but the palate is biting bitter, not enjoyable finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a frothy pink head on a deep cherry colored body. Aroma is sour and vinous with notes of malt, berries and black currant. Flavor is bittersweet and fruity though quite thin and watery. Dominated by black currant. A nice and refreshing fruit beer but very thin.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A red beer with a huge pink head that laces the glass. The aroma is sour with notes of green leaves, blackberries, and black currant. The flavor is of blackberries, black currant and a dry hoppy end. And the body is thin - so it taste like a too thin fruit syrup.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Blackberry aroma, rather vinous. Sweet flavor with blackberries. Just a bit soapy. Candy. Some bitterness in the otherwise blackberry aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black (very deep red) colour, with a pinkish head, which is rapidly and almost fully diminishing. Good lacing. Fruity (myrtilles) aroma, some soured milk too. Neutral flavour, little bit sourish in the end. Disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Well-aged sample) Amber with a burgundy-mauve shine, all clear; little white rim. Little madeirisation in a very sweet nose, fruitsugars, brown sugar. Fruitjuice flavours and madeirisation vie about domination. Sugar, point, wins. Excessively sweet. Fruity but not natural. Bit of esters all the same. Thank God this is very light. If not, it would be pure syrup. Whether aged or fresh, this beer is horribly sweet. Sugared fruitjuice, diluted with weak beer. For non-beer lovers.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep red/purple coloured. Nice aroma of blueberries and other berries with touch of acidity. Unfortunately the flavour is slightly candyish and the finish is thin.
