- My Rating: D
Pink Killer – Brasserie de Silly, 5% ABV – 250ml., (Silly, Belgium)
Ingredients: water, barley malt, wheat, hops, yeast, grapefruit juice, sugar, sweetener, flavours.
- Style: (grapefruit) Fruit Ale
- Taste: syrupy fruitiness -> citrus malts/gatorade -> aspartame/bad hop/fruity malt finish.
- Where I got it : W.16th
How much: $4 (after 10% off) – 250ml., June 2013
- Do I love this enough to drink it again: no
- Would I recommend this to beer aficionados: no!
Visual: Pours clear pinkish-orange with almost no head, thin ringed retention, virtually no activity, and the last few drops in the bottle full of cloudy sediment.
Nose: Bright fruity-candy-esque grapefruit-citrus aroma. Half-sugar/half-soap, not all bad. (7/10-pungency)
Attack: syrup’d sweetness fruity malts
Mid-palate: (MAIN) light tangy malts, gatorade (energy-drink), *mild* pink grapefruit
Finish: bad aspartame flavour and roughness, bad hopped bitterness, fruity malt finish.
Summary: The flavours are not really appetizing plus the texture is pretty bad. Bearable, but money and ingredients not well spent.
