2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
25cl. Bottle: Pours a crisp clear but dark strawberry with no other highlights. Light pink thin head. Actually quite a nice color in the glass. Very rich blueberry aroma, slightly synthetic but better than I expected. First thought, I wish I had some pancakes to pour this over. Also a slight herbal note in the back as well as a small dash of farmyard or manure. Taste of blueberries doesn’t quite live up to the aroma... it is definitely there and definitely blueberry but I am more drawn to the odd sweetness. Almost a saccharine or "fake" sugar sweetness. And it doesn’t let up... the odd sugar taste stays in your mouth and starts to turn bitter in the aftertaste. There is definitely a weak red table wine component to the flavor. Mix some red wine with water, a little blueberry juice, a packet of sugar substitute, and a couple table spoons of a pale ale and then you have this beer. I will have to say though, after reading some of the other reviews, this beer isn’t as bad as I was expecting... but then again I don’t know if I would ever buy another.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.25l bottle. Pours with no head at all, very little carbonation. Tastes a bit like light red wine, a bit sour and not too sweet. I’m quite new to fruit beers, so I have nothing to compare to. Quite a nice introduction.
