3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
24/01/2013 Buskers Pub (tap). Bevuta al Birra del Borgo Takeover. Limpida, color Campari, schiuma bianca sottile e poco persistente. Naso delicato, note di ciliegie, floreali e spezie, sciripposo e acidulo, non male. In bocca č ancora piů convincente, fresca, acida, frutta rossa, corpo leggero, discreta secchezza. Davvero una bella fruit beer, ben fatta e di buon carattere.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
75cl bottle shared by Colin at CBC, Clerkenwell. It pours a slightly hazy deep ruby/amber color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is fruity with loads of tart cherry notes and some citrus. Taste is well balanced, gently sweet and acidic with notes of cherries and light dust and citrus. Medium mouthfeel and well carbonated. Very good and certainly better than the Rubus.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours ruby-tinged amber with a quickly fading head.
Nose shows cherry, brett, soft light malt and lemon.
There’s a bit of the cherry as a flavour too but it’s pretty restrained. Some acidity makes things refreshing before some light malt, brett and a soft bitterness roll through.
Carbonation is suitably high, while the body is light, working perfectly.
