Bottle. Mixed fruit nose: berries, grapes, cranberry. Light reddish-brown color, soft pink head. Tangy berry initial, raisins, finishes crisply with light fruity sweetness. Thin-medium body, good carbonation. Good fruit, and enough malt to keep it from being fruit punch. Refreshing stuff, even four months past its sell-by date.

15/VIII/08 - sampled @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival 2008 (Zwevegem) - BB: n/a
Warning: early amateur rating from brief notes that I found when cleaning out the home office.
A solid 4/10, and as far as I remember quite a sweet and sugary drink.

This beer pours a dark pink color with a small light pink head. I was pretty much disgusted by this beer. I don’t know what they were going for here. The berry taste is barely there and the beer was very flat.

Medium to big fuxia/pink head, quite thick, but fast going down. Pink colour, little hazy, but not much. Smells is cassis, sweet. Taste is fruity, cassis, sweet but not at all too much. A nice mouthfeel.
Low carbonation...very drinkable. A good fruit beer.

Even for a fruit beer, this thing isn’t all that good. Light pink head with a starburst flavor and appearance. A bit tart at the end.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours purple with a small pink head nose is blackberry cough syrup. The taste is sweet with a very small hint of tart at the end but not balanced at all. The mouthfeel is sticky, body is medium and so is the finish.
