UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 draft @ the old fire station, hammersmith. Washed out red in colour with a foamy pale pink head. Spotty lacing. Faint, but natural nose of fruit juice. Tastes just like a fresh fruit daquiri - as good as being back home in New Orleans. Finish of pink grapfruit and dried cranberries. Nice mouthfeel - spritely with a full body. Nicely balanced, but more like a mixed drink than a beer. One for the ladies!

Bottle. Red brown colour with a white head. Aroma is berries, sugar. Flavour is berries, heather, sugar. Weak but still a charming beer.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 5, 2007
Opaque, very dark red with a pink head. The aroma has notes of cranberries and berry acidity. The flavour is sweetish with berry acidity and notes of cranberries - to put it short: it’s refreshing, quite charming and uncomplicated and it could be a nice aperitif! 2476

yngwie (13404) - 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)

Aroma is sweet, a bit of pineapple aswell as cranberry, some wheat. Taste is also very sweet, good carbonation, maybe a little dryness from the cranberry.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2007
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.

dj (521) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2008
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.

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?
