CapedBrewsader (265) - Brasschaat, BELGIUM - MAY 4, 2007
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.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JAN 20, 2007
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.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 28, 2005

bmxutos (161) - Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 20, 2005
Bottle, 25cl. Pours a beautiful red liquid with a huge and long lasting reddish head. Nice lacing and carbonation. The aroma is sour and vinious with notes of berries, nothing very intense. Flavour is very good: a little bittersweet, fruity and dry. The sweetness isn’t as strong as other fruit/lambic beers and that’s good, at least in my point of view. Must be very cold! A very nice fruit beer!

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2005
Pink bordeaux colour. Pink slowly disappearing head, average lacing. Strong berry aroma, smells oversweetened. The initial flavour is offcourse sweet, but not as sweet as expected, with very light sourness. Finish is too sweet.
