1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
250 ml bottle, best before Nov. 2006. Very cloudy light red colour with golden highlights and a lasting forthy white head. Looks like a carbonated raspberry smoothie. Sweetened strawberry kiwi(?) aroma. Tastes like mashed strawberries that have been sitting in the fridge a bit too long, or the juice leftover from thawing frozen strawberries, (my mother picked a lot of strawberries when I was younger) with some light rotting bitterness to go with the strawberry flavour. Full and thick mouthfeel, lightly fizzy.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2005 ***WARNING*** not a Fruit Lambic!! It is what it is - a very red, very "fruit forward" strawberry flavored Wit. The sweet berry flavor is natural, and if it’s well-chilled I can get through a syrupy half bottle before it goes back in the fridge. I bet some of the ladies would appreciate this more than typical beer drinkers. Instant party favor.

Not bad. I don’t see what all the complaints are about- especially since I’ve never been a big fan of Lindeman’s Lambic.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy dark peach body topped with a fair pale pink foamy head. Nose is dominated by a strong strawberry aroma, and so is the taste. Despite honest efforts, I haven’t been able to detect any hint of malt or hops. Tastes like Jell-O before you store it in the refrigerator, which is pleasant, but not appropriate for a beer. Considering the high quality of many products brewed by Huyghe, this is truly deceiving...

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy pale red in colour with a powerful nose of strawberry. Not much wheat beer quality to this one (no yeasty or wheaty flavors), just overpowering sweet strawberry cand flavorsy. Not completely offensive, but not really "beer like" enough for me.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at the Lowlander Cafe in London. Hazed red body. Nose is strong sweetened strawberry . Almost like strawberry jam. Taste is strawberried malt and sucrose and is jelly-like. Strong taste of berries throughout. Body is overcarbonated, it seems. Finish is more sweetened berries.

UPDATED: JAN 7, 2007 Re-rating: hazy dark peach with a strawberry aroma of cider and a taste of cider akin to strawberry. I don’t know what I got out of it the first time but this is a mess.

This wheat pours a reddish, cloudy colour with a white rocky head. This beer is has a very strong strawberry smell thats like candy or jam with a hint of alcohol. First taste was quite carbonated but extremely sweet, like they watered down jam. The finish was slightly bitter and the palate was like I just ate a jam sandwich. Ehh?

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 Very cloudy neon pink beer with a thin white head. Very strong strawberry and light spice aroma. Flavour is almost all strawberry with a hint of coriander. Very sweet finish. I wouldn’t say that this is bad, but the sweetness really puts you off after half a pint. I couldn’t finish it.
