Bottled, 500ml from Oddbins, Summertown, Oxon. Red brown with white head. Sweetish malty beer similar to the Williams Red in body, but with a slightly fruity fructose note. Quite interesting initially, but loses impact by half way point. Just a little dull overall.

jikvig (269) - NORWAY - FEB 25, 2011
Copper-red colour with a nice white foam. Aroma; Very fruity, a chees-funky smell to it aswell. A sweet maltprofile in the back too. Flavour; Very fruity in the mouth aswell, then turning slightly sour and you really get a wild-cherry flavour. Good body, refreshing, medium lenght. Summary; This is a really something different. The aftertaste is more of a kriek, a real summerbeer!

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle 50 cl from www.erzbierschof.ch. Amber-pink with small white head fleeting. Fruity aroma of cranberry, failing to know the tayberry. The taste is candied raspberry and cranberry. Neither soft or sour, acidulity of candy. Quiet beer with hops in finale. Rather short.

Bottle from Aakjærs. Nice head with medium duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich berry juice with, malt and caramel. Semi bitter fruity finish.If I hadnt read the label I would have guessed it to be cranberries.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bitter and berry sharp without anything to counteract the twin attack. Alright.

Pours clear golden with a medium head. Aroma is berries, flavor is just the right amount of berries with some malts. Very nice fruit beer.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2010 The label says "did we mention it’s pink?" Well, I can tell you that this beer is not pink. It looks like your average lager to me. It tastes fruity but not too much which I like. Fruity, malty and grainy aroma. Grassy hops step in in the flavour.

500 ml bottle. Slightly reddish golden color, white head. Fruity aroma with a hint of honey. Fruity flavor with a hint of lemon, slightly acidic mouthfeel. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not bad for a fruit beer that isn’t a lambic.
