3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

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.

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.

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.
