fonefan (52396) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2010
Bottle 330ml.
Clear medium red amber color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, fruity - berry, raspberry. Flavor is moderate heavy sweet and light light bitter with a average to long duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. [20091021]

Ungstrup (38958) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with an orangey head. The aroma has strong notes of raspberries as well as some notes of malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, and some raspberries, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks fonefan for sharing.

Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Comes as "Kerkom Speciaal Ka(ta)rakter brouwsel Bink Bloesem" as a 130 year jubilee beer for Kerkom - and clearly credited to this brewery. Clear deep amber with a thick beige head. Fruity and very perfumy nose. Medium body, very perfumy and berry-like, also yeasty and phenollic. Astringent and dry finish. 211009

Koelschtrinker (22074) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - AUG 15, 2013
Deutlich fruchtiger und malziger Beginn. Der Antrunk ist erstaunlich mild, die errochenen Noten sind nur in geringen Maßen vorhanden. Dann malziger, süffig, angenehm milder Fruchtigkeit. Etwas oxidiert, würziger Ausklang. Ordentlich. 10/8/9/9/4/9

MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle, 7.1%. Fruity aroma, a little bubble gum, but not bad. Cloudy red and brown colour. Small head. The flavour is dry and fruity with a little burning alcohol in the finish. Seems a bit perfumy, but not necessarily artificial.

bierkoning (13813) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2008
Bottle. Brown color. Artificial raspberry and lemon in the aroma. Sweet perfumed herbal hoppy flavor with lemon, raspberry and coreander. Too perfumed to be really enjoyable.

thewolf (12948) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 16, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
Pours brownish amber with a large, fizzy, beige head. Aroma has sweet sugars, fruit, strawberries, caramel and some honey. Medium carbonation, rather dry mouthfeel. Flavour is fruity and not too sweet. There are notes of black currants, dry herbal notes - presumably flowers - and a fine underlying honey sweetness. Long, lingering, vinious aftertaste. A bit on the weird and unbalanced side, but it is still nicely drinkable.

tderoeck (10625) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 24, 2015
1/VIII/15 - 33cl bottle from De Zytholoog / Bierloods (Adegem) @ holidays - BB: VIII/2012 (2015-1028)

Significantly better than it’s regular cousin, this one-time special brew. Clear dark amber to red brown beer, irregular creamy beige head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, raspberries, sweet, bit oxidized, malty touch. MF: soft carbon, medium to light body. Taste: bit metallic, quite some raspberries, slightly sweet, sourish, bit oxidized. Aftertaste: bitter, metallic, raspberries, but nothing sweet. Oxidation (despite being 4 years older) is much lesser than with the regular version I had.

KimJohansen (10498) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2009
Cloudy reddish amber with a medium beige head. Sweet fruity arom that had raspberries, and strawberries. Flavour was sweet quite sweet with raspberries, malt and lollypop notes. Finished very sweet.

MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2009
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, copper golden coloured hue with floaties and a big and beige, dense foamy head. Moderately sweet malty and distinctively fruity aroma of raspberries, accompanied by yeasty and slightly dusty notes. Sweet flavour with sourish fruity and light-bitter influences, medium bodied with a smooth carbonation. Quite artificial fruity taste with underlying toasty malt and shy hints of caramel, quite perfumed fruity and toasty finish. Does not really work for me. 04.XII.09
