omhper (19667) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2003
Sampled draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.
Dark reddish brown. Big cherry aroma. Sweet, yet acidic and very vinuous. Medium bodied, with a slight note of oak. the finish is an orgie in berry flavour; raspberries, cherries, blueberries, you name it...

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2003
[Keg] Ruby amber color; thin persistent cap.
Wonderful fruity aroma (ripe apricots, raisins, plums...); winy.
Pretty sweet, fruity, with a light oak cask character. Just the required hop.
Good palate, instead that bitter it"s sweet and lightly tart, astringent.
It would be perfect with some sharper sourness.

Big frothy head. Aroma has oak, cinnamon and berriues. Sweetish, almost creamy flavor with a good deal of sourness, oak, honey and pineapple.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - OCT 8, 2002
Dark amber with a medium creamy head. Sweet malty fruity aroma. The taste has a hint of raisins and oranges. It is a bit of softdrink over this beer. Not bad though.
