Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Krakov. Raspberry and cherry syrup added to this lager! Drinkable, just.

imdownthepub (15322) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2009
Bottle, 500ml at a bar on the main square. Pinkish amber with no head. Very sweet, saccharine, bubblegum flavour, terrible but in a funny way. Not really a beer.

saxo (19370) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2009
Can. Medium head with medium duration. Color is hazy red. Aroma and taste are artificial strawberry, citrus and malt.

Rated: 18.08.2008
Can, 500 ml, contains malted barley, corn, hops, water, artificial substances strenghtening aroma and taste, caramel, artificial dying ingredient, acesulfam K, aspartam, sweetening substances, citric accid.
Appearance: Pours hazy orangy yellow body colour with a carbonation like of a fizzy drink, head is snowy white, foamy to frothy, initially quite big, slowly decreasing to small, almost non - existant lacing and ti present probably due to a sticky phisicall properities.
Aroma: Very offensive, bothering and disturbing, repulsive harshness on the artificial cherry and raspberry with notes of something old and fermented. Extreme sweetness.
Flavour: As the commercial broadly broadcasted in Poland says: ’A bit different beer’, awful sweet artificial candy, citric accid and mix of a poor beer with water, real sud! What is more corn syrup! Bleeh!
Palate: Body is medium, texture is sticky sweet, carbonation on palate is moderate, finish feel is sticky sweet and accidic, highly astringent, rough and nasty. Real violation of taste buds and stomach.

Eructoblaster (4370) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2008
On tap at Parasolka (Sopot). Amber body with heavy carbonation and a thin white foamy/creamy head. Aroma is dominated by strawberries. It carries malty hints. Taste is rather thin and lacks complexity. Ends with a short fruity/sour finish. Boring Fruit Beer.

Stefano (2034) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 14, 2008
Deep amber colored, no head. Powerfull aroma of raspberry. Medicinal cheery flavours, very sweet rasberry and mainly cherry flavour. Fizzy palate.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - JUL 1, 2007
<Beer bought in a polish supermarket, they have a decent beer selection, but the styles are pretty much all the same> Definate aroma of rassberries, with a peach colored look and a white head, while the aroma is fine, the taste is pretty horrible, dusty metallic acidic flavor, way too acidic actually. Ended as a drain poor.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2006
Beer #1000. Deep amber colored, no head. Only cherries, bubblegum and some raspberry in aroma. Thin to medium bodied. Flavor is similar to aroma: cherries, sweetness and mild berries. Refreshing drink, but not very much of a beer...

ewkka (9) - Wronin, POLAND - MAY 23, 2006 does not count
Raspberry flavour, no hops/malt, fruity. Pretty good raspberry juice. (always wondered why "fruit beers" have little to do with actual beer.
