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
