330ml bottle poured into a pint glass by freshness date.

A:
Cloudy dark pink color with an amber tinge, massive foamy head it’s a bit off-white color with a slight pink hue, good head retention also left with plenty of sticky laces that everlasting cling to a glass they’re a bit like and remind me of a globe map, high and fizzy carbonation.

S:
Mingle by the mixture of fruits; raspberries, blueberries, cherries, black currants along with slight clove phenolic note.

T+M:
Fruitiness, sourness and sweetness tastes blend together with reminiscent of the aforesaid fruits in its aroma. Light-bodied, smooth, finish is dry.

O:
Pretty enjoyable drink even it’s not my style. (682 characters)

Thought I'd give some love for this beer, which only has one review so far.

A - Rose tinted, if not slightly peachy. A slight head that doesn't stick around for long.

S - Blueberries pertained the most prominent. Of course, cherries, raspberries, and blackberries were there--all of which were tied together with the scent of coriander.

T - Tastes just like it smells: Creamy, sweet, tart with a pervading coriander.

M - Considerably carbonated, although short lived. Light yet creamy.

D - Being both light and delicious, the bottle emptied pretty fast. A very simple beer that is very drinkable. (601 characters)

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: Cloudy red color with a nice two finger firm pink head. Nice lacing.

Smell: Just strong red fruit aroma.

Taste: Taste of sweet raspberries, slightly tart at the end. Too sweet for lambic.

Mouthfeel/Drink: The mouthfeel is fizzy. Light bodied but not watery. A beer for the aperitif. (347 characters)
