Bottle (This beer is produced by Martens for Tokuoka Co, Ltd., which operates the "Marche" chain of stores in Japan.) Laight candyish nose, sweet berries (sort of raspberry...) Dark rose with a low pink head. Mild berry and cherry initial / mild settles, with a hint of malt / finish is light, with a bit of tanginess and continuing sweetness. Thin-medium body. Not a whole lot here that is like beer. But not as bad as the others in this "Bel" series.
