1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
250 mL bottle. Translucent brownish red with a film of head. Smells like sweet strawberry juice. Tastes like sweet, heavily carbonated strawberry syrup that someone has spilled a little beer into as a joke. I’m not big on fruit beers in the first place, but this one is way too strong and sweet. I can see how some may find it a decent summer drink, though.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Hazy reddish colour with a small pinkish head. Sweet strawberry aroma and taste. This could be a juice and not a real beer.

3.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is a very tough one to rate as it smells, looks and tastes nothing like beer. strong strawberry aroma. pale pink in the glass. tastes like freshly fermented strawberries. This would be very refreshing on a hot day and is perfect for people who don’t like the taste of "beer". It does an excellent job of doing what it wants to do, so kudos for that.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. (as 4,2 % vol). Pours a deep muddy dark red. Has a thin white film head. Aroma has loads of strawberries and a general fruity sweetness. Taste maintains a light sourness, granting ’access’ to the sweet end of strawberry. Mouthfeel has loads of small bubbles and quite a full feel.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
250 ml bottle - pours cloudy pink/orange with a pinkish head. Aroma is pretty much like strawberry concentrate. Taste is much the same - sweet strawberry with a sort of dry, tart finish. Not bad, but really one-dimensional. Strawberry juice (from concentrate) in a bottle. There’s no hint of a Belgian wit lurking underneath, nor the coriander and orange peel that the label proudly proclaims. Pure strawberry. If the bottle was any bigger, I probably would have dumped some.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
250ml bottle. cloudy murky red with a small pinkish head. looks kinda like tomato juice. strong strawberry smell(not a big surprise). tastes like strawberries (also not a surprise) with a nice tart finish. a bit of an artificial aftertaste. good carbonation. tastes good, but not too much like beer

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a unclear red/pink colour, with not head, and a creamy white ring. Strong scents of candy strawberry, very straight forward. Tastes just how it smells, as one dimensional as a beer can get. The palat was ok i guess, carbonation was decent, texture was a bit syrupy though.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 draft from Delirium Cafe, Brussels. Courtesy of two English gents on the piss - they insisted this was "the best beer you can get in Belgium" and that it "is something like 15% abv". I enjoyed a chuckle and accepted the freebie. Cloudy pinkish red. Too sweet aroma of strawberries. Taste is part sour young strawberries, part artificial strawberries. Fresh and fruity finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Nice one for your nan.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Wellington Arms, Bedford. Murky dark red with a lasting rosy head. Sweet ripe strawberry aroma. Taste could have had a little more tartness, otherwise it has a fairly authentic strawberries-from-the-freezer taste, hovering just on the right side of cloying jamminess. All right, I admit, it was delicious.
