2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottled, 4.5% ABV) Clear, darkish red color with a small, fading head. Sweetish, lemonadey (blue)berry aroma. Sweetish, slightly bitter flavor of blueberries. No finish to speak of. Light to medium-bodied palate with high, lemonadey carbonation. Not really beer, but decent lemonade. The sweetness is of a quite natural kind.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle 25 cl) My version was 4,5% ABV. Pale red colour, pretty much like a traditional kriek actually. Tall, pretty, pinkisk and almost velvety head. Some underlying sweetness from the blueberries but not overwhelmingly so. On the contrary this is rather dry and never cloying as with some of the more pop-like fruit-beers. Based on pils, which is fairly unusual. 130795

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.

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.
