C: brown, hazy, opaque.
A: a lot of red fruits, red berries, blueberries, cherries.
T: malty, red berries, cherries, raspberries, quite sweet almost syrupy, medium body, medium carbonation, too sweet for me and this kind of beer, 25cl bottle from BIO-PLANET JAMBES supermarket in Namur.

Dark brown red, large head. Leather, red apple, some light cara malts. Refined. Taste starts quite sweet and that remains the overtone, but also a malty base luckily. Ends a touch cloying. It’s not my style, but not so bad as I feared, not at all. (25cl bottle from Prik&Tik Leuven) gyhallmanti (486) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2016
25cl bottle at home. Pours a hazy brown reddish colour with a small off white head. Aroma of cherries, caramel, toffee, pineapple, strawberries, raspberries, grenadine, ginger. Taste is very sweet, low bitter with a soft sour finish. Notes of grenadine, cherries, caramel, light malty, raspberries, pomegranate, light spices. Texture is watery to oily, light bodoed woth low carbonation Ysok02 (1519) - Mons, BELGIUM - APR 8, 2016
Robe rosée foncée, mousse moyenne. Nez alliant fruits rouges acidulés, fraise, note lactée. Bouche désagréable qui évoque plus le sirop antibiotique amer que la bière. Insupportable pour moi. kermis (12869) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle sampled at Kulminator. Pours cloudy dull amber. Aroma of urinal cakes, nettles and peas. Flavour is over moderate sweet and a touch acidic. Sickly nastiness in the palate making me feel nauseous. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Overall, terrible. It starts bad with the aroma, but the palate is sickening.

Spelt-beer based fruit beer launched after the original Leirekens were restyled (in 2008) and trying to exploit the then-popular trend of combining different "wood fruit" tastes into one beer. This is based on Leireken Witte Spelt and uses six different extracts of red and dark fruits. Light pink head over a deep ruby red, hazy beer. Artificial aroma of red fruit jam, grenadine, pomegranate, elderberry coughing syrup, sour cherry a bit less pronunciated, sourish spelt, some spicy hints (pepper, ginger). Fruit sweet taste, artificial but still on an acceptable level, but sugary cloying, drying in the finish with a light acidity, but everything remains dominated by the fruit extracts. I never liked witbier-based fruit beers and spelt beer to me is usually just a variation on witbier, so... mikske79 (1666) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 14, 2014
De minsten van alle Leireken-bieren. Dit was echt absoluut mijn smaak niet. MarcoDL (4845) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
Decent fruit beer, at least the fruits taste quite real and not so artificial. kraddel (7859) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 18, 2013
pours dark pink, pink head
smells like heavy fruits, some sugar
taste is very sugary , liquid sugar-water, with some chemical fruits ( cherry up front, but with a back of more fruit-juices . )
pretty damn arteficial .. no chemical-sprayed fruits were used . i can believe that , since i dont think ANY real fruit is used here . dont get me wrong, its not THE worst drink ever, but beer that dont taste like beer, i rate in order how much i apreciate it . as a non-beer-drink . and even than, this aint my favourite .
its just to damn sugary, i’m sorry .. EddyBeer1 (1058) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2013
Rouge foncée opaque, effervescence très légère, mousse rouge clair persistante. L’ensemble des fruits s’impose d’emblée avec, hélas, une prédominance de sureau. Sans adjonction de sucre, cela donne une honnête bière aux fruits rouges, de loin supérieure à la Leffe Ruby à laquelle on peut l’apparenter.
