3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Rutland and Derby, Leicester. This is a historical rating BTW - hahaha. But true. This was like thick, tart fruit smoothie - nothing less. Hoorah full set of Frulis for me, as wife sits here furiously swigging the strawberry version. Melted ice lolly, yeah?

Bottle from Phil L at beermerchants.com, good work fella. The strawberry on tap is lovely, in bottles it’s poor. Not had this on tap but first impressions is it’s tastier than the bottled strawberry badger. Tastes a bit less chemical. Sweet and pleasant enough but needs more.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Phil_l, via Beer Merchants. Thanks Phil! Pours sort of a milky pink, the dubious color of rouge old ladies wear when they are fading a little bit mentally and thinking they are 15 again. Seriously the most unclear beer I’ve ever poured out of a bottle. More milkshake than beer. Some pinkish head floats above the murk. Tinned fruit juice aroma, mostly cranberry but some dull orange and a dash of tomato. Flavor is initially a pleasant sharp fruitiness, but then transitions to a cheap sherry sweetness and old butter. Still kind of drinkable in an odd way, but very flawed.

Bottle, 250ml. A densely cloudy pink colour with fruit pulp and almost no head. Aroma of slightly sour cranberry. A cranberry flavour with some yeast and wheat notes. A little sweetness and a sour finish. Quite drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rather strange hazy red coloured beer with very light carbonation and a small white head. Fruity, little sweet aroma with a medium palate. Finish is again fruity, cherry and cranberry with a sweeter/ little sour touched ending. Medium one.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled from BEERmerchants, Kent. Muddy purple with no head. Not being a fruit beer lover I was ready to pan this, but no, its pretty reasonable. Initially sweet, but then a sourish cranberry, lambic type flavour. I was close to enjoying it, this cannot be right. Many thanks to Phil and the folks at BEERmerchants.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a brownish pink body with a pinkish off-white, small head. Nice berry nose, but be quick, it’s volatile. Sweet, berryish, yeasty and slightly spiced flavor with heather-like notes and a touch of sourness. Medium body with a little astringency. Sourish finish with berries. Odd but good, and quite full of flavors. Maybe a beer I should try once more. (080112)
