3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle purchased at Bir & Fud, Roma. The colour is glowing orange with a huge off-white head. Prunes aroma, but other dark fruit, especially prums, as well. Vinous. The taste is sweet and fruity, yet still very well-balanced with vinous flavours. Blends well with caramel maltiness. Some raisiny traits towards the finish. Well-carbonated. Enjoyable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. [Tasting session @ Papsoe, 31-10-2008] Huge creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Muddy golden color. Aroma of dusty grain, yeast, light fruit. Over the palate came sour raisins, wheat like notes. Light bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet and acidic flavor. Light sour fruity finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Nose is sweet with light sour notes, light musk. Cloudy orange with huge white head, loads of carbonation and nice lacing. Flavor is sweet/sour, more grape and plum than current. The sour notes are in great compliment to the sweetness. This bottle might have spent a few years in a cellar, and is showing great balance. High carbonation but generally drinkable palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasting - Perfect Pour. Dark hazed gold, creamy white head. Soft aromas of sour berry and black currants throughout. Sweet fruity black currant flavors balance on hints of dried red grape and citrus. Light bodied with zesty carbonation. Decent, but nothing to write home about...

750ml bought on the east coast a few months ago shared with my gf cyn. Thankfully this didn’t gush like its sister beer. Pours orange with a tan head that is very frothy. Nose of black currant. Taste is sweet almost cloying with an over abundance of carbonation.
