Appearance – A golden orange color. Great head, and a fair amount of lacing sticks to the glass. I didn't notice any grapefruit peel floaing in mine as other have noticed. A bit cloudy, but not opaque.

Smell – Smells a lot like grapefruit soda, with an interesting spice that I believe is coriander.

Taste – A sweet grapefruit soda. With spice. No hint of beer or alcohol.

Mouthfeel – Thin, smooth, and sweet. A bit too much like a soda; needs more alcohol.

Drinkability – Fairly easy drinking due to the sweetness. Ok, but not great.

Served on-draught into a Pink Killer glass at the Delirium Cafe in Brussels, Belgium. Reviewed from notes taken June 2011. Expectations were above average.

Not paired with food.

A: Pours a one finger head of lovely fluffy cream, great thickness, and good retention. Colour is a cloudy pink-red. Unique and intriguing.

Sm: Some cherry and musty floral hops. Very flowery. Incredibly pleasant and appealing. I'm really excited to try this.

T: ...Ugh. Bubblegum, artificial candy, and floral hops, with a bubblegum finish. Artificial and strange. Almost fake. Complex and balanced enough, but poorly built. Ersatz crap. Too sweet. Bleh.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Somewhat complementary of the flavours of the body.

Dr: Easy enough to drink, but priced highly by Belgian standards. The artificial garbage is hard to get over. The best aspect of this beer is by far its exemplary aroma - but overall, the quality is merely mundane. A strange offering from Brasserie de Silly.

High D+

thanks to duff27 for a pour of this beer.

poured into snifter.

Appearance: Yellow bodied beer with a short lived white head.

Smell: Halls menthol cough drops. orange zest, lemon zest, cherry, and mild grapefruit.

Taste: Very sweet. Cherry Ludens cough drops. Corn cobs, swedish fish candy, tangerines, cotton candy, honey. This beer is really different. Is this beer like candy?

Mouthfeel: Thin, yet strangely syrup like. Almost an oxymoron.

Overall: Just a really different beer. It makes you scratch your head to pick the beer apart.

Strong aroma has a firm overtone of coriander, as well as malty and orange hints. It pours a somewhat hazy amber with a thick and fluffy white head. Flavor has a malty core and a strong coriander overtone, plus subtle sour orange and grapefruit notes. Smooth, firm texture has plenty of fizz. The label and name give it the appearance of a "chick beer" but one for women who are fierce and in control - not wussy, obsolete "damsels in distress." Guys may enjoy it, too!

Big fizzy 1 finger pink off-white colored head fades semi slowly with a bit of lacing, over super hazy pinkish orange peach colored beer.

Nose is like grapefruit soda, has a ruby red grapefruit juice aroma, fresh squeezed, a light malty sugar and soda like syrup, and a hint of grapefuit like hop.

Taste is as expected, like grapefruit soda. Essentially ruby red and pink grapefruit juice, a bit of tartness and sour rind like taste, juicy and fairly sweet. A bit of carbonation and soda like syrup really gives it the grapefruit soda feel. No real beer aspects at all. Finishes dry with a bitter rind like aftertaste and a bit sticky, with more sugary grapefruit extract taste.

Mouth is lighter bodied, decent carb.

Overall not bad tasting, but not beer like at all. Just sugary sweet grapefruit, pink and ruby red, a well as a bit of bitter rind and grapefruit extract, and a sour bitter kinda icky aftertaste.
