I poured this from a 25cl bottle. The head presentation is great with a finger thick head, which has a pinkish tint to it. Retention lasts quite a good spell. The body is ruby red and complements the name of this brew.

Aroma qualities are grape, melon, and slightly cherry.

The taste is at first by a sour cherry flavor that gives way to a melon and cherry mix.

The texture of this brew is foamy and less soda pop like. I can tell this is has a good malt presence, as opposed to relying on sugary syrup to dish out the alcohol.

Out of the two Belgian fruit based beverages I've had, I'd have to say this is the best thus so far.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours reddish with a pale pink, tall head. Dissipation takes a long, long time and leaves fantastic lacings.

S: Lots of raspberries, but rather sweet - lemonade instead of berries? Some malt.

T: Sweet - but not overly sweet. Raspberries and some malt, alongsides with oranges and some spices.

M: Aftertaste holds the raspberries for a really long time. Body is medium and carbonation is mild.

O: Not bad, but I expected more...

330 ml. bottle. Thick head with pink tones that leaves a good lace, rose wine colour. Smell of medicinal syrup, red frutis and vanilla. Thin body, sweet palate. Taste of red fruits, apples and medicinal fruit. Not exactly the best of the Leffe beers.

Aroma: Fruity, but fake fruity; maybe strawberries mixed with something

Taste: Taste is actually impressive; fruity, but pleasant; sort of a malty fruit soda; enjoyable overall

Remarks: Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from a 30 cl bottle bought in Germany.

A - A crystal clear beer, very light in color. Light copper or orange, it almost seems pink-tinged when held up to light. Head is pure white and made of large, soap-like bubbles. It fades quickly, but has sticky lacing.

S - Aroma is not beer-like. A spice sticks out like a sore thumb (cardamom?) Malt and hops can't make it past that smell. Fruit is at low level, but there might be some strawberry. It smells more like an expensive French soap than beer.

T - Again, I can't find anything resembling a beer. It is a sweet, strawberry fruit juice with the same spice flavor to match the aroma. Malt is very much in the background and hops are non-existent. No alcohol flavor.

M - Prickly, almost harsh carbonation. No hops bitterness or alcohol burn. Body is light.

O - This is much closer to a wine cooler than a beer. I'm not sure it belongs on the RateBeer site, except maybe I can warn some beer lovers away before they waste their money.

A ruby red beer with a settling head.

Smell is very fruity, red fruit mainly, like lemonade syrop. Maybe some wheat in the smell?

Taste is sweet and reminds nowhere of beer. I has no bitterness and the malts are sparingly present. The fruit aroma is very present and although clearly artificial, it is not chemical or overly present. The alcohol is very well hidden, but that is not a plus in this case. The beer is like a breezer (bacardi), I know there is alcohol but it drinks like soda pop. Good job of Leffe to formulate a rose beer of which I could drink a couple, if I would ever have the plan to do so. (Probably never!).
