MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2009
(bottle) Clear, golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Fruit-accented and quite sour nose with notes of cassis and raspberry. Bitter and slightly sourish tart flavour, light bodied with a crispy mouthfeel. Mild (cara-)malty base on the one side with present acidic fruity accents which turn abruptly into a dry, bitter-tart and fairly hoppy finish. Works for me. 06.XI.09

gunnar (5658) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear orange with a small white head. Sweet fruity aroma reminds me of "Julebrus" soft drink as sweet as *¨^>. Taste is sour/sweet, ends rather quick.

Nisse666 (4486) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2009 Pink/brown in colour with a qickly disappearing head. Smell: fruitiness Taste: wild strawberry soda (a soft drink in Sweden), grapefruit, sweet but a bit sour! It’s nice with fruity beers, this one didn’t really carry out the tayberry flavor. I guess that more chilled and in the summer is the best combination. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-05-2009

RichardW (1544) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2009
Bottle, Booths, Windermere. Deeply cloudy and dusky pink in appearance, with an off white head.Raspberries and blackberries fairly prominent, with a faint kriek style aroma. Reminiscent of tizer, but in a good way! Thinner in body than a Belgian fruit beer would be, but plenty of flavour and a really interesting style.

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 24, 2008
(Bottle) Pours copper to brownish red. The aroma is of raspberries up front but there is also some room for blackberries and currant. Some malty sweetness in the background. The flavour is rather juicy with raspberries, blackberries and currant alongside mild toasted and toffee-like malt. The mouthfeel is clean, medium carbonated and light crisp. Light sweet and light bitter. Light tart aftertaste. Light to medium bodied.

ekstedt (5625) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 7, 2008
Bottle (50 cl) at Haket, Göteborg, Sweden. Shaddy mahogny, small head. Earthy malt aroma with some spicy hops and dark berries, especially raspberries. Dry with moderate bitterness. Ok but a bit cloying after a while.

dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2008
Bottle at Århus Ølfestival 2008. Pours clear orange with a small head. Aroma and flavour are both sweet and fruity - a bit boring though.

wyzzywyz22 (2032) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle, Barleycorns, Nantwich. Poured a pinkish colour with not much of a head. A bit on the thin side, and was expecting a much stronger berry aroma and flavour. Verges on the insipid and was disappointed by this..
