3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
.33l bottle from Bier and Cheese in Queens. Tasty, tart little beer. Heavy medicinal note, like a really well put together Croatian rakija with lots of herbs. Red fruit tannins. Good puckering tartness. Candy like though. All in all an entertaining and tasty beer. The added red fruit from the barrels is a bit much, makes this a bit of a muddle to get all the flavors that are certainly there. Interesting and tasty beer to work with.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thin brown head, fast gone over reddish-tinted, near black beer. Very vinous nose, with chocolate; bit salty, like soy sauce, paprika chips. Taste: OW - what’s this? Wood, paprikapowder, salt, stale chips, ketjap sauce, liquorice, and old, oxydated wine. Tannines, but with more bitter than sour. Ends on running cheese as Camembert, and finally mounting acidity. Very slick, oily, not thin; but flat as a pancake. Sorry guys. Either something’s wrong with this bottle, or this is something I profoundly dislike.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(bottle, 33cl) Opaque, almost black coloured hue with a brown medium-sized foamy head. Acidic, vinegary and fruity aroma with notes of prunes, dark berries, raisins and delicately woody notes. Sour and moderately tart flavour with a tinge of residual sugar, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Delicately roasted malty taste with hints of liquorice, wood and present sour- and vinous fruity notes (prunes, morellos, dark berries); dry and lasting, moderately acidic and tannic finish with woody notes; toasty malt shows up again in the aftertaste. Very good! 06.X.13

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured an 11.2 oz bottle into a tulip glass and it produced nearly nearly no head, just some rapidly dissipating bubbles. Dark cola brown in color with a slight burgundy highlight. The nose is incredibly fruity, with grape or dark cherry, alcoholic/ oak-y vapors (allergies keeping me from detecting much caramel or anything else.) The flavor is definitely tart, semi-dry... I say the best aspects of the burgundy played perfectly with a sour. Caramel definitely plays the back. Carb is on the livelier side. Completely delicious.
