I bought this beer on my loyalty to Unibroue. The bottle and name "fairy" didnt come off as manly and tough. After about an hour of teasing and interesting pictures with the bottle I pulled the cork.
The appearance for this beer is very nice. Dark amber with carbonation moving through it like a busy street. The smell is really what impressed me with this one. It had a very beautiful aroma of dried fruit and alcohol. Almost wine like to the nose, and was enjoyed by everyone I offered it to. The taste was different but good. The beer was very present but in the same volume as the currant notes. No real strong hop flavor but in my opinion that would have hurt the taste. The mouth feel was rich and smooth and got better when it warmed. The drinkability was good but being so rich with flavor and body, it proved to be quite filling.
Serving type: nitro-tap

A: Pink. A very unique color that I've never seen in a beer before. Tiny white head on the top throughout.
S: Berries! Blueberries, boysenberries, raspberries, blackberries. Smells like a berry lollipop.
T: Sweet berries on the front end, finishing out with some lemon peel and coriander. Finishes very sour.
M: Super bubbly. Champagne type bubbles.
O: A very unique beer, very fruity and unique. Will seek out again.

3.53/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: It has a nice hazy deep golden/orange color to it with some sediment floating around. It has a nice light pink head that dies down moderately fast and leaves next to no lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (raspberries, black currant) yeast, citrus and wheat malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some dark fruit (raspberries, black currant, cherries) witch are somewhat tart, citrus, faint yeast and some wheat malts.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.
