2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap at the Rose and Thistle, Frimley Green - 05/01/13.
Hazed crimson, almost akin to a watered down bloody mary, with a thin off pink head that soon clears to the edge.
Nose is strawberry slush puppy, berry fruit, sugars.
Taste is a sweet strawberry sugar rush.
Medium body with a little spritz in the carbonation, sweet finish.
Meh - way too sweet. Had this once maybe 7 or 8 years ago and the distant memory from then told me I wouldn’t look forward to rating it. Doesn’t even compete with your average Bulgarian low ABV radler !

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.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled at Wetherspoons world of beer promo. Cloudy pink with pink head. What on earth is happening here? Fruity sweet concoction that if I didn’t have the bottle in my hands I would not have said was beer. Its a sweet sticky cheap fruit juice that is placed in probably a cheap Belgian Witt. Disgusting, but gets the od mark for novelty and aroma.

Bottle poured a clear pale red with a small lingering pink head. Aromas of strawberry and light cookie. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of strawberry, light cookie and a hint of honey with a crisp lingering strawberry finish. Much better than I expected, not excessively sweet.
