From Belgium in a Box. In Teku glass. At lunch, with rice soup + turkey steaks. The berries profile is similar to that of a Danone's berries yogurt, in both nose and mouth. Its pleasant, but in the long run it ends becoming a bit tiresome. The alcohol is vey well integrated, not much noticiable, just enough so that it doesn't resemble a refreshment instead of an alcoholic beveragez, and what is noticed isn't unpleasant. The carbonation is very low and completely dissapears very soon

Pleasant aroma. Reddish transparent. Light, fresh and drinkable. Balanced taste, not too sweet.

Maybe I'm overrating this beer because of my love for Gouden Carolus. On the other hand, this beer really deserves a compliment for being new. Not only just other fruit, but a real improvement to a new style.

L: very good, great top that cannot last forever ofcourse, red clear colour.
S: quite sweet, but it is beer, strawberry jam;
T: different fruits, but non rules, interesting is the strong malt taste; a little metal/stone;
M: I like the low alcohol and lasting aftertaste;
O: This is not exactly a beer drinkers beer, but as I said it deserves a compliment for its grit.

A: very deep reddish in color, also the head has some red hue, the head is big, creamy, persistent, waste left on the glass

S: a deep smeel to razzberry, fruity esters not very nice to be honest

T: too much acidity but in a bad way, sweet notes, kind of a grape cider
