Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2007
Bottled. An unclear pinkish red beer with a pink head. The aroma is sweet with notes of cranberries and wheat. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of cranberries lending it a slight acidity, leading to a dry and slightly wheaty finish. Decent.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2008
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)

harrisoni (14138) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2007
Bottle at Chris_o Shindig. Cloudy, pink, thin white head. Some cranberry/cereal on aroma. It’s actually alright, a bit sweet, in fact overly sweet. Bit over the top.

thewolf (11259) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2007
Bottle @ Octoberfest tasting, Kolding. Pours a very muddy pale red. A small creamy pinkish head on top with good lacing. Aroma is fruity, berries. Flavour is light, wheaty, but only a little berries taste. Quite sweet, but only a little sourness from the cranberries. Only a little dryness.

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2008
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.
