Aroma of caramel, cherry, raisins, and vinegar. Very nice dark amber color and clarity- poured a very thin head but left some lacing. Tastes sweeter than I’d imagined, slight oaky notes, low acidity, roasty. Kind of a sherry or Madeira flavor. Palate is semi-thick, with large tangible bubbles. Roasty

Thanks, Cara, for the sample. Darkish body off white head. Blueberry aroma. Taste is slightly dry and tart with a distinct blueberry element. Nice.

Theydon_Bois (14326) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2015
Bottle split at home, 21/11/15. Reddish brown with a decent off white covering. Nose is sweet and sour fruit, caramelised sugar, light spice, earthy red berry. Taste comprises light cherry sourness, wood must, fruit cake, trace of funk, earthy, bitter red berry, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light acidic rise. Adequate but low down the order for this style ... too sweet.

Deep red/brown colour, with an off white foamy head that dissipates slowly, leaving white lacing. Aroma is caramel, red fruit, roasted malt, herbs, spices, earthy wood and some chocolate. Taste is similar with a light sour cherry, wood smoke, sweet vanilla and raisin. Aftertaste finds raspberry and strawberry tones.

thellgren (534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 17, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2015 0.33 l bottle from Alko Arkadia, Helsinki. Brown colour. Taste is mainly sweetish brown ale combined with some sour lambic. Note that you should cool this too much since you’ll loose then the taste of lambic.

Beersiveknown (4409) - NORTHERN IRELAND - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle with Belgian Family Brewers at Lindemans
not overly sour, sherbetty, woody, lactose sweetness, high carbonation, citrussy, corn notes, harsh, too much young sweet brown ale, insufficient lambic for balance.

RexTalionis (3235) - FINLAND - SEP 5, 2015
Bottle. Mahogny ruby, small off-white head. Berries and lots of artificial notes in aroma. Not much difference in taste either. Quite horrible brew to spoil a good style.
