Århus2008. 50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a lacing white head. Sweet and light fruity aroma, seems to a housecharacter for the Williams brothers. Flavour is sweet and distinct berry fruity. Shows a light acidic touch into the finish. Shows a mild bitterness lurking through the sweet berry flavours too. Quite nice and wellcomposed. These beers seem perfectly suited as summer thirst-quencers.

Ungstrup (29019) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2006
An amber beer with an orange head. The aroma very powerful with notes of berries - reminds me of raspberries - but really are tayberries. The flavor is sweet with a cloying artificial berry note, leading to a dry bitter end. If this is what tayberries tastes like, I don’t like them, but since I both like raspberries and blackberries, I’d like to try tayberries fresh and not put in my beer.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2007
(Bottle 50 cl) Clear, reddish amber with a creamy, off-white head that leaves some lacework. Fresh raspberryish aroma. Fairly light in body with some berry sweetness on the fore and then a discreet underlying tartness. The finish is dry. A surprisingly refreshing and harmonious fruit beer. 271107

omhper (19187) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2007
Bottled. Clear golden, creamy head. Rosebud aroma. Sweet and fruity, medium bodied. Sort of a dortmunder with undefined fruits added - perhaps raspberry and rosebud. Low-medium bitterness. Peculiar,. but I find it interesting.

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

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.
