3.75/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Poured into a NB globe glass to a deep red topped by a finger and a half of dense light pink head that retains well and leaves decent lacing
S: Smells of strawberries with some hints of vanilla
T: Taste is strawberries and vanilla with some light malty sweetness and some light hints of tartness. Swallow is more strawberries and vanilla with some slight lingering sweetness
M: The beer has a moderate amount of heft and a slightly creamy mouthfeel. carbonation is adequate for the style and the beer has a slightly drying finish.
O: Overall this was a really solid beer. Good flavors but not a lot of complexity. Not quite one note but could have been better. Worth trying if you're into them though.

what an interesting beer, brewed with vanilla and strawberries and currants and raspberries, not so much an ipa as they claim it to be, more of a fruited wild beer, but something entirely out of nowhere and totally amazing. it smells really sweet, lactose in here for sure, but also sweet berries, with strawberries well out in front of the others. very little hop presence here, some finishing bitterness, but some interesting yeast that gives it a funk profile that is becoming classic for these guys. i get a ton of currants in the flavor, as true to the fruits as i have seen in a beer, with strawberries a little sweeter and right behind them, some raspberry tang. the hops are again quite subtle, behind the yeast even in this beer, which is why i would be hesitant to bill it as an ipa of any kind, but a little bit of bitterness comes on late. sweet all the way, but the funky yeast brings a little acidity which helps mellow it, and there is a ton of thickness here, so this sort of makes sense. a very odd beer overall, incredibly unique (like almost all of their beers are), and sort of dodging around different styles. love the mix of fruits, but could have done without the lactose. vanilla is a little strong here too, but i like what it brings. fun beer, intensely flavored, wholly original. i would buy this again for sure, everyone should taste this...

330ml bottle - a fruit ale brewed with raspberries, strawberries, lactose, and vanilla - so something like my mom's summer fruit pies of yesteryear, then, and she wasn't even Danish!

This beer pours a murky, dark purplish amber colour, with a teeming tower of puffy, finely foamy, and creamy pale pink head, which leaves some stellar tightly webbed lace around the glass as it gently subsides.

It smells of muddled dark berries, testy yeast, gritty and grainy pale malt, very wood-forward vanilla, and a further sense of bridled citrus fruitiness. The taste is tart raspberry and strawberry extract, a bit of underripe cherry, sour cream, grainy and bready pale malt, vegetal vanilla, and more leafy, weedy, and floral green hop bitters.

The carbonation is fairly active in its tongue-tickling frothiness, the body a decent medium weight, and mostly smooth, but for a bit of prickly berry fruitiness not playing all that nicely with my otherwise willing palate. It finishes off-dry, the creamy and fruity character holding on with both virtual hands.

Overall, this seems much more like an actual cream ale, than anything resembling an IPA - with a healthy addition of the various berries, of course. Easy to drink, a tad sour (no shit), and pretty tasty, once one comes to appreciate the dessert-leaning nature of it all.

The colour is red-pink-purple-brown; the liquid is cloudy. The two finger head is pale pink and compact, it sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is sweet with fruity notes of strawberries, red currants, tart raspberries and some hard-to-pinpoint citric fruits.

The taste got quickly passing strong sweetness. Then, sour fruits/berries kick in: Raspberries, red currants, lime, green bananas, cucumbers. Medium body. Growing notes of sweet strawberries in the aftertaste as well as tart raspberries, warming alcohol, black currants and a hint of mango. Lingering bitterness and strawberry jam in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong, the many small bubbles are sharp and long-lived. The liquid is semi-smooth and thick like syrup.

An interesting take on fruit beers. The fruits are fairly integrated, but it becomes a bit too thick after a few sips.

Pours a cloudy, grapefruit flesh color. 1/2 inch head of an off-pink color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, yeast, fresh berries, earthiness, and bacterial funk. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with a high carbonation level. There is also a tartness present. Tastes of strawberries, raspberries, sweet malt, earthiness, hint of hop, bacterial funk, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good appearance, distinct fresh berry aroma and body, and good complexity.

This beer is a riff on a classic Danish dessert I've personally never had, but after reading the description I have some context for the beer. The name translated means something like 'grits with fruit' - and is basically a simple creamy porridge served with a sort of berry compote. Considering that, it makes sense for this slightly soured fruit beer to have vanilla and lactose added. There isn't much of a nose, but deserves the 4.5 because orthronasally it is spot-on - almost the way wasabi hits you, there is a solid lacto-berry-pucker on the palate for the outbreath.

The beer is unclear in red color. The foam is low with reddish white sized bubbles. The foam disappears leisurely quickly and leave fine traces. You are greeted by a very fruity aroma and berries. The scent has little hops, cherries, strawberries, currants, raspberries and some citrus. Towards the end, a little vanilla and some herbs. The taste starts little tart and buoyancy. Cherries are what I feel at first but then comes the strawberry, currant, raspberry. Is a little hop with a little citrus and small herbs. Very fruity. The body is heavy for its class. But still has a soft creamy feel. Very fruity and has a good balance.

Described as a fruit ale brewed w/ strawberries, raspberries, black and red currants, vanilla, and lactose. Apparently, it is an attempt to replicate a Danish fruit cream desert in beer form. I'm intrigued.

Pours a very hazy, raspberry color with a thick, three-finger head that does not going away quickly. Beautiful, big bubbles in the slightly pinkish head. Heavy lacing. I currently have a cold/sinus issues, so it is difficult for me to smell. However, this has a very nice fruity aroma (berries, mostly raspberries but also with some sweeter strawberry notes) along with oats and hops. Smells like a red fruit desert.
Taste: I've had a few of Omnipollo's lactose IPAs and really enjoyed them. But the lactose in this one didn't work for me. It was the first thing that jumped out on the initial drink, and integrated with the fruit, gave it a rotten fruit type feel. As in the aroma, I think the fruit is showcased nicely, but I was hoping for something fruity sweet with some hop bitterness, rather than the creamy mouthfeel from the lactose. In the end, this is probably exactly what they were going for and just a personal taste of me not liking it so much.
Overall, I would like to try the desert to see how well To Øl imitates the taste. Not so much for me, but an interesting beer nonetheless.

Murky plum color with huge, foamy, pinkish head. Aroma is sharp an fruity with yogurt and some hops in the background. Taste starts slightly tart and fruity with a yougurty feel to it. Finishes with a slight hoppiness but overall it's on the tart, fruity side. Body is quite heavy for the style and has a really soft and creamy mouthfeel. Overall it's an enjoyable fruity beer but nothing really special.

33cl bottle. Dark murky pink pour with a pink head that gives way to a sticky lacing. Smells like citra hops, raspberries, strawberries, lactose and redcurrants. The taste follows the same notes, though the flavours are quite subtle underneath the herbal bitterness and the slight sourness.

On tap at brewberry Paris. Brewed with red fruits.

Light pink head. Ruby red color.

Flavors of raspberries and strawberries. More of a fruit beer than an IPA. Some hop presence.

Very unique, but very good.
