Really enjoyed this. Almost drinks like a lighter weight bock to my simple palate. Lots of fresh fruit, sweet mineral-like lolly flavours. A touch of spice as well. Deadly smooth and dead easy to suck down. No bitterness or hop impact to speak of.

Yes, there is just a little bit of fruits and malts in the nose but not nearly enough to call it an aromatic beer. Looks all right though, nice brown colour and thick head. The fruit definitely comes through in the taste, lots of grapes and cherry flavours, slight malty and hoppy hints and a dry finish. A good rendition of a "fruity" beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Tesco. The beer poured a dark ruby colour with a thin white head. The aroma to me smells of bubble gum. The taste is very sweet and really fruity.
Not a bad beer, from Badger.

Aromas of chicory, licorice and ruby port. Pungent and interesting. Smells enticing. A touch of rose blush to a largely golden pint . There’s a hint of green on the white head that departs in short order. I’m a little shell shocked by the first taste. It is full bodied and not shy of flavour. It is vaguely medicinal in flavour. The damson comes through strongly with licorice playing a secondary role. Thinking about the formulation of the recipe, it could have been so easy to get very, very wrong. Still, I agree with the Grandmaster who suggests that this is a beer best shared. A lot to deal with in one sitting. Would be an ideal dessert match though. I’m thinking of Bakewell Tart.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Tesco. Like somebody chucked a huge bowl of ripe fruit into the brew, with the emphasis on plums! Rich, deep tawny robust ale, slightly vineous with bags of flavour. Has a long, sweetish finish. A very well made beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a reddish brown body with a medium off white head with decent retention. Has a very malty aroma, lots of fruits especially cherries. A little hop character, caramel. Sweet, with bitter notes in the background. Dry finish, decent carbonation. Tastes very similar to certain Belgian krieks. You do not notice its strength as your drink it!
