This was an unexpected find, piled up in the middle of our local Aldi along with various other random items.

Fruit beers are a lot more popular in mainland Europe than here in the UK, and the packaging reflects that, conjuring up images of summer holidays on Continental beaches. This particular fruity delight is French, hailing from the Brasserie Licorne brewery.

As soon as you open the bottle, there’s a hit of pink grapefruit. Once poured, it’s got a pink grapefruit colour. And as for the taste, that’s mostly pink grapefruit too. Looking at the ingredients, just 12% of the drink is alcohol-free beer. So, maybe it’s no wonder that this is such a tremendously grapefruity brew.

Overall, it’s a really nice fruit drink, and way better than most of the “adult soft drinks” on the market. It’s not too sweet and it’s got a genuinely natural taste. It’s not really beer but it’s not bad at all.
