On tap from Max’s Taphouse in Baltimore during Belgian fest. Transparent, slightly hazy amber with a slight green haze and a slim, fast fading white head. Smells fruity, floral with a slight hint of berries. Flavor starts with a nice simple, sweet berry which is immediately overpowered by a sharp, wheat and banana flavor (not good). Malt is WAY over the top. Slightly funky on the end. Could have been better if they focused more on the berry and less on the malt. Dedollewaitor (16315) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2008
33 cl bottle @ biertempel, Brussels: BB 08. Finally within my reach! Cloudy pink with no head or lacings. Aroma is heavy: Dusty, sweaty, sweet, sour, fruity, vinous, thin, sticky, tart, weird. Would prefer a good kriek over this anyday! beastiefan2k (4054) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JAN 5, 2008
Big thanks go out to JoeMcPhee for sharing this 33cL bottle. It pours a very murky, muddy dark orange with pinkish hues. It is totally muddy with no clarity at all with a small head. Aroma is nicely tart-y fruits and a light yeasty wildness, Comes off slightly spiky and summery. Taste is only lightly tart with some sweet summer berries. A nicely felt mouthfeel with some spikes on the cheeks. Leaves a lightly tart berry aftertaste with a bit of nice dryness. I do not know what sloeberries are but I like them. I am surprised how low most others rate this. JoeMcPhee (9517) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2008
11.3 oz bottle. Hazy/cloudy beer, pink coloured with a thin white head. Aroma is quite tart and softly berryish. A bit of honey and light wheaty flavour. Fairly watery palate with a bit of wheaty spiciness. Tart and lightly spicy. Pretty decent. downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2007
330ml bottle. Opaque reddish brown with a slight head. Tart aroma of sloes and yeast. Flavour was again tart, almost to the point of sourness with a dry finish. Ok as a one off, but lacked some balancing sweetness.

Bottle in Brussels.
Cloudy red. All right, some sweet and sour elements here which are nice. It is mostly a gimmick beer, but if I had a few bottles, I’d try it with duck or turkey. BartC (727) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - NOV 4, 2007
Dark pink-amber bee’r with a pinkish head. Light acidic aroma. Mild and very nice balanced flavor between sourness and sweetness. Dark berries. MPA (999) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle. Reddish brown with a white head. Aroma of berries, a little yeast, sweetness and a little grape. Flavour is sweet with berries, but too ligh to make a lasting impression. kapusta (116) - Browns Summit, North Carolina, USA - AUG 1, 2007
Pours a murky brownish/red color. Slight fruit flavor, that you cannot really pinpoint what it is. Sour, somewhat like a weak Flemish Red, but not really. The guy at de bier temple told me this was uncommon, so that is what urged me to buy it. Glad I tried it, but not really that good. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2007
(Bottle 33 cl) Pours a very cloudy, reddish amber with a small, dissipating head. Slightly tart and berryish head. Medium body and rather dry - and also in the flavour you get a slightly tart sensation - but no real malty feel. And no real bitterness either - just this very dry tartness. A nice and refreshing summer beer although it’s actually a winter seasonal. 210707
