500ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear red tinged with gold, good white head kept going by good carbonation. Good fruit aromas, redcurrant and raspberry, with a creamy, almost vanilla note. Taste has much more bitterness than I expected, and almost overpowers the fruit sweetness. Nice, but a bit too bitter for me.

Bottle @ GBF 2013. Pale red with a tiny white head. Fruity and spicy notes. Malt, fruit and acidity. Medium to light body with a dry finish.

Punchy fresh raspberry like aroma. Flavour loses a bit of raspberry but gains a more complex fruitiness mixing elderberry and perhaps rosehip. This is really a rather good fruit beer

Very faint aroma of lager and hint of berry. Doesnt look good, no head. Taste is very faint berry 99% lager. What palate ? Will not buy again.

First time I have tried this beer. The aroma is all tayberries, very sweet and pleasant. The beer is an amber colour with a pinkish hue. The head does not retain well. The taste is overly fruity for me, the berries dominate at the expense of the beer. Not bad but probably one for the ladies rather than the men.

mikkopen (833) - Oulu, FINLAND - APR 9, 2013
500 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, thin white head. Nice raspberry aroma with some grassy notes. The flavour is sourish fruity, with some sweet berries, and a mildly grassy finish. A little thin on the palate.

50 cl bottle.
Originally rated on 20100507.
Pours copper color with a small head. Aroma of fruits, berries, juice and grass. Flavor is the same with some more juice. Not so appealing though.

Light amber, clear good dense creamy white head that also stays long and leaves bit lacing. Aroma has stunningly much berries, bit sour and sweet, quite natural aroma. Really light body and feel, lots berries here also, slightly sour like some berries are but not overly so and sweetness from berries, long finish has berries. Really light, easy to drink in the summer kinda beer that most would think to be unbeery.

Cloudy pink with white head. Berry all the way in aroma and taste. Not too sweet. Quite highly carbonated. Slightly tart finish. Very nice.

Dobre i smaczne piwo z sokiem owocowym. Zapach jest bardzo mocno wyczuwalny taki owocowo-kwiatowy. Piana maleńka i szybko znika. Piwo przez ten dodany naturalny sok jest trochę mętne. Bardzo naturalne piwo z lekką goryczką. Podobne do Belchawena i także ze szkocji
