500ml brown glass bottle from Morrisons. On offer at £1. This product (difficult to call it a beer) is genuinely foul. Somebody said fruit cider, and thatís close, but this is worse. Chemical notes, syrup, plastic - lingering chemical burn at the back of the throat. This is foul stuff indeed. Iím surprised so many of us have been suckered into buying it. It should be in the fruit cider or alcopops section, it has little to do with beer. 100% crap.

500 ml bottle, poured into a long tulip glass. Clear, golden color, head looks good and has good retention, forms some decent lacing. Fruity, artificial smell. Taste is mostly some berry-bubblegum or something like that. Sweet, artificial and unpleasant. Body is light with decent carbonation. Overall, very disappointing.

DuffMan (6499) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Fizzy golden, rapidly collapsing head that leaves behind nothing. Aroma is-- sweet Jesus-- the bastard love child of a bottle of cough syrup anda jar of berry jam. The flavour is so sweet as to pass for a flavoured alcopop cooler. An abomination. Couldnít get beyond three sips.

sulawang (599) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2013
Visual: A beautiful label on their own branded bottle. Pours pale orange with almost no head nor retention, almost no activity either. Nose: a very fruity fieldberry nose, a mixture of raspberry-blackberry-strawberry, though somewhat perfume-like. (7)-aromatic strength. Attack: aspartame-like, medicinal Mid-palate: fizzy texture, (3)-sweetness, (MAIN) club soda, elderflower, red bull, watered-down apple juice Finish: rough on the palate, burpy, light apple-medicinal finish. Summary: It drinks like an under-sweetened energy drink. The body is flat, flavour is awful, and nothing like any bramble berries Iíve ever tasted. NOT recommended. (Note: numbers above are on a 10-point weak-strong scale)

Pours a golden yellow with a small white top. Aroma is extremely fruity, lots of berries. Taste is sickly sweet with fruity berries and syrupy sugar.

maeib (8594) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2013
Bottled 21/09/13. A golden coloured beer with no head. Yes, forest fruits for sure but also a lot of sweet toffee notes which donít gel all that well. I feared this would be bad and indeed it is in the mouth although the aroma ainít too bad. Itís downhill all the way from there though. Thereís some toothpaste shockingly.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2013
boring fruit brew. The pour a slightly ruby red highlight amber with a thin soapy head. The nose is overly sweetened with a bunch of ripe berry fruit scents but nothing else. Too sweet and lacking depth and flavour overall. A good hot summer day brew!

Ontbeertaster (2308) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle, pours bright red, aroma is a mixed berry smell and so is flavour, it didnt have too smooth a taste and it was overly sweet for me, overall it wasnt bad.

A little bit of a disappointment as one expected possibly too much. Interesting aroma when opened that did not fully translate to the taste. One of those things to taste to say one has done it but not likely to be a regular partner. A bit falsely sweet rather than a real taste combination. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wow I got this one as a gift for driving some buddies to the liquor store one night, wish I would have told them to screw off. Aroma of cotton candy, strawberry jolly ranchers, just very fake, sweet candy like aromas. At least the aroma is manageable cause the taste is the aroma bit even sweeter, Iíve when you put five scoops of ice tea mix into a glass of water but then no one is looking and you out another 3 or 4 in, wow this is disgustingly syrupy like sweet, what are they thinking with this one.
