Brown appearance and an aroma of blueberries. The flavor is a sweet blueberry-caramel. Medium body. A little stickiness in the caramel aftertaste.

Bottle, bought @ Magasin, Cph.
Deep red-brown with a great, staying, creamy, beige head. Aroma is mild fruity tart, good raisin, plums, some caramel, light lactic, light oak. Medium carbonation, slightly thin mouthfeel. Flavour has mils tartness, light Belgian sugar sweetness, some caramel, oak. Tartness is light fruity and fresh with some plums and red currants. Okay beer.

Jimthechap (2033) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 12, 2011
Beautiful rosy russet with an off-white head about a centimetre thick. Aromas of ale yeast, bread and stewing stonefruit, fortified steamed pudding. Flavours to match along with a wine character that appeals, dates and berryfruit. Tasty and not at all what I was expecting. I’d quite happily go for another.

Not a very good experiment. Color is nice, smell and taste not. Low body, low carbo.

zach8270 (3810) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 28, 2011
(bottle - 330 ml) Dark copper pour with a thick tan head. Very sweet and fruity aroma with some mild hints of wood and caramel malts. Sweet and cherry-like flavor at the start with a light tartness and a sweet and fruity finish. Menu said sour, but wasn’t really sour. Still decent though.

Poured a dark copper color. Medium head. Aroma of perfume, coriander. some candy sugar. Taste is medum sweetness and some lite sour at end. Tastes of cherry and rasberry notes. Med body, livelier carbonation, almost champaign-like. Interesting one.

jsmerig (1332) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Peppery aroma maybe coriander. Pours a deep rich mahogany brown. Taste is very sweet and cherry-like up front with a mix of sour in the background. As the tasting continues the flavor and carbonation become reminiscent of an Asti such as martini and rossi or Verdi. Interesting.

TURDFERGUSON (4017) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Bottle shared by emacgee. A lot of hype on this one. Lets see if it lives up. Ruby copper with a off-white lace. Nose is cherry, oak, apple cider, wet cardboard. Flavor reveals cherry skins, some nuts, enchilidas, cardboard, some woody tannins. Lightly acidic finish. Meh.

Pours a clean dark ruby copper with one finger of light tan head. Nose is awful, smells like low quality deli meat and crappy cherries. Tart and kind of astringent flavor, cherry skins in here too. Some kind of meat, bleeeeeehhhh. Not a fan.
