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)

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pink, murky soup over which leaves a light white head.
Rather shy nose in fact. The cranberries come artificially sweet and can’t fail, but remind of soda-pop, aspartame and more bubbles than sourness. Wheaty and dull background.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. Very flat and as with other Fruli beers, sweet. I would have thought i would have liked Cranberry better than the strawberry, but i didn’t flat and dull like cordial or something, not good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, at London Shindig, August 2007. I only bought this for the tasting because it had only four ratings and I wasn’t expecting too much but I found myself presently surprised. Pink in colour. Aroma is fruity, but not too overblown or artificial. Lots of berry fruit in the flavour (obviously) and the tartness of the cranberry saves it from getting too sweet and sticky. The fruit seems more genuine and less synthetic than some of the other commercial fruit beers. A quite sharp tang on the finish makes for a quite refreshing beer. No world-beater but far better than I anticipated.
