Colour is fantastic at least for postioning and marketing purposes. Pink foam is attractive, too. Wildberry notes, somehow fruity. It’s sweet. Bitterness is low. I think the packaging desing is really appealing.

Skunky old butter was too much for me to handle. The skunk was noticeable over a meter away! Very sweet and malty.

Bottled (backlog). Hazy ambery red colour with a small off-white foamy head. Aroma is sweet malts, some caramel, mild floral and grassy notes along with some some fruits. Flavour is very sweet maltiness with some berries and mild alcohol showing as well.

Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso riconosce fragola e frutti rossi in generale. L’intensità olfattiva è normale e la persistenza olfattiva è sufficiente. Il cappello di schiuma resiste poco ed è costituito da bollicine medie. L’aspetto del liquido è opalescente. La carbonazione è bassa. Il colore è ambrato rossiccio carico tendente marrone. Il corpo è snello. Il dolce è pesante. L’amaro è leggero. L’intensità gustativa è leggera e la persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di pronta beva. Il retrogusto è sfuggente. Il palato riporta sentori di miele, crosta di pane, frutta, formaggi, verdure cotte e un debole aroma gommoso.

Bottle a while back, uk import, but source not now recalled. Poured a slightly hazy amber/red colour with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, sweet caramel, with light fruit. Quite heavy on sweetness. Light bitterness. Medium body, oily texture. Finish is finish and alcoholic.

BKHansen (91) - Praestø, DENMARK - MAY 17, 2016
50 cl. dåse. Rødbrun med lille hvidlig skumkrone. Smagen er sødlig og frugtagtig. Medium fylde og let bitterhed men en okay øl.

nazzty (1377) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2016
Very sweet and fruity with dominant fruit juice flavors. Works well as an aperitif.

Bamsen78 (5562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 8, 2016
Can. Pours reddish amber with airy pinkish off-white head. Clear aroma of some cheap fruit juice, with notes of yeast. Sweetish flavour of cheap juice and inferior yeast, with notes of metal and touches of hops and malt. Bitter, metallic and estery aftertaste. Poor. Now, here’s the important part. Years ago, when I was half my present age, a teacher of mine warmly recommended this beer to me. I lived in Poland at that time and paid what was a small fortune to me to get this beer. Deeply impressed, I genuinely thought the beer was delicious. So much so that when I first visited Denmark a few years later, I asked for this beer in a variety of shops but it was nowhere to be found. Finally, one evening in a drowsy 7-11 in Copenhagen, a young sales assistant kindly explained to me that the beer could not be sold in Denmark because it contained detergent. Well, she may not have known the first thing about beer, or just her English was not good enough, but... it tastes as if she was damn right.
