Bottle from tesco, Meir. Pours amber with lively off white head. Fruit aroma, a bit medicinal like cherry flavoured tunes. Weird, I'd like to try on cask though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper ruby beer with a medium head. Aroma is full of the damsons. Taste is fruity cherry flavour, a little synthetic though, like cherry drops. There is a bit of malts in there sweet though. Strange beer, I like it and I don’t.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear ruby with a small white head. Aroma is quite strange fruity with anisette. Taste is too much liquorice, sickening, strange, awful.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Fra flaske på Cardinal M2 feb-13: aroma av plommesyltetøy (eller is med rom og rosin iflg. Egil). emmen aroma av overmodne bær. Ikke noe for meg, men interessant å ha prøvd. Kanskje noe for de som vil ha en øl men ikke liker humlebitterhet?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 0,5 l bottle at Cardinal. Clear orange golden body with a tan colored film. Fruity, raisin, liquorice and honey notes on the nose. Fruity sweet liquorice with a raspberry tutti frutti malty mouth with a bitter finish. Medium body. Dry mouth. A bit artificial aromas maybe, but altogether an interesting beer, earning it a few overall points in my view.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 500 ml brown bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.7%. Clear brown colour, moderate off-white head. Strong aroma of damson / plums, over-ripe raspberries and some weird fruity cough syrup I bought in Scotland once. The flavour is fruity and slightly roasty, notes of plums, over-ripe raspberries and cough syrup again. Moderate hops. Pretty weird beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle, pours a reddish brown colour with small head. Strong emphasis on berries, rather over-poweringly, bitter-sweet. Aftertaste not unlike a fruit yogurt.
