Corked bottle. Strong raspberry aroma. Initial roasted malt challenged by raspberries. fairly dry. Hint of vanilla. Questionable balance. Hint of alcohol. Still a nice beer. tderoeck (10002) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 28, 2012
11/VIII/2012 75cl bottle @ RBBSG - (2012-913) Thanks to Tinus for sharing the bottle!BelgBeerGeek (1307) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2012
Clear ruby red beer, no head, dissipates immediately. Aroma: lots of raspberry jam. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: lots of raspberry jam, little sweet, pretty bitter touch as well. Aftertaste: little bitter, rapsberry, bit lemony, little metallic. Not a huge fan of cooking the fruits with the wort, I prefer beer which is blended with "raw" fruits.
at RBBSG thx to Martinus for sharing !! Travlr (25500) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Smell: very fruity, raspberry, sweet, some malts
Taste: Ok this is a Fruit Beer , so doesn’t have to be sour , since it’s not a sour ale , pretty good rounded sweet flavour of the rasberrys , some malts underneath, not that bad !
Bottle courtesy of Tinus, thanks! Clear ruby color, small white head. Nice fruit aroma. Taste is very sweet fruit. sebletitje (10178) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle sample @ 2nd RBBSG, August 11th 2012. Courtesy of Tinus.
Couleur acajou, col beige fin.
Arôme de mûres, fruité avec ce bouquet de fruits terreux faisant abstraction des fausses notes fruitées.
Palais garde ce côté fruité framboise, mûres, note terreuse sur une pointe de douceur mais le tout reste plus centré sur une fine note aigre avec des houblons nobles laissant une brève amertume.

Bottle @ tasting. Aroma is huge red fruits, mostly raspberry. (No shit) Almost like concentrated lemonade syrup, with the forthcoming articifial notes. Flavour is huge raspberry, blackcurrant, all very dry and very fruity. Not bad for a fruit beer. (which is really not my style.) deanso (10178) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - JUL 10, 2012
Sample at a molen beer tasting.
Thin white head. Clear ruby pour. Fruity aroma. Ok for a fruit beer. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2012
Clean dark red, beige bubbly head. Raspberry soda, lemonade, fruit milk. Way too sweet in the aroma, foaming mouth feel. Dry fruit feel and bitter end. Strange but I’m not a fan. Maybe if you love fruit beer. (At the De Molen tasting) MaartenRF10 (1959) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2012
Hazy red small white head. Aroma is very sweet and lots of raspberry. Taste is less sweet than aroma. Lots of carbonation. Very dry. I prefer a good cruel. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle @ 2nd tuesday tasting hosted by dEnk at De Molen. Aroma of raspberries, blackcurrant and yoghurt. Flavor is slightly sour, even a biit dry and quite fruity. Still a bit harsh and even slightly chemical.
