tkrjukoff (4294) - SWEDEN - APR 2, 2011
Courtesy of Nisse666. Pours cherry red with minimal bubbly pink head. Aroma is rasberry, cranberry, tart sour hoppy. Berry sour Mouthfeel. Flavor is rasberry, alcohol, thin body, chemical, a bit odd. Medium Palate. Finishes fruity and very tart, doesn’t really mix well.

mcberko (13523) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
375mL bottle, pours hazy dark reddish orange with a towering white head. Strong aroma of strawberries, raspberries, wood, whiskey and booze. Flavour brings out a balanced combination of the above-mentioned berries and wood / whiskey - booze is definitely prominent, though well-worked in for being 10.5%. Slightly tart / sour notes that linger along with the barrel aged qualities. Probably one of the weaker in the Abstrakt series, though this is a damn well made barrel aged fruit beer.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear and brown beer with a weak head. The aroma is malt, cherries, sweetness and notes of alcohol. The flavor is cherries, a lot of alcohol and acidity. The palate is acidic with alcoholwarmth. Overall this beer has too much alcohol.

coldbrewky (1673) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Corked and caged 330 hand bottled by Reakt and sent in trade a good while back. Pours nearly an electric orange and a clear as a bell thicker off white head. Steady thin carbonation. Nose of tart fruit. Like a cricket bat to the face the oak overpowers the malt. I let it breath a bit and it toned down a fair pace. Still pretty darn tart, but some thin malt tones survive as the booziness makes an asserted appearance. finish is sudden. Looking in the bottle for more.

anders37 (22523) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear pale reddish color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity sweetish raspberry aroma. Sweetish fruity bitter raspberry flavor. Has a sweetish fruity malty raspberry finish.

hirigalzkar (2808) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2011
Bottle. Rather strange fruit beer. I appreciate a lot of this beers qualities, but at the same time I can see its weeknesses. Notes of berries, chocolate and licorice.

Blairgus (4047) - California, USA - MAR 12, 2011
yellow edges w/ pale red centre, lots of bubbles and lots of particles like fruit bits floating in the beer almost nothing but strawberries on the nose med/full body and moderately fizzy beginning and middle are strawberry flavour and that is almost like a children’s strawberry tylenol (or strawberry koolaid, and there is a certain chalkiness to the nose as well) flavour the beer finishes with a strong oaky alcohol harshness that leaves a lot to be desired finish starts dry and fizzy like champaign and ends leaving a very dry mouth. not my favourite abstrakt. maybe fresh fruit shouldn’t sit in a cask for two years.

finol (2992) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2011
Bottle at Bishops arms Folkungagatan. Pours redish brown with just some bubbles for a head. Almost spontanues fermented like acidity and fruityness.

drfabulous (6330) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - MAR 8, 2011
375 thanks to Jarrett. Fruity with an almost red ale body and taste. I get the strawberry for sure. At the end of the beer, a slight medicinal taste takes over. Ok overall.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle at home. Drunk 8 months after bottling, so maybe not that fresh. A complete gusher, reckon I lost about a third of a bottle. However in the glass, head fades fast. Aroma is intense berries, some plum, sweet and boozy. Taste is full and fruity, very juicy and resinous. Medium carbonation lightens it. Some tartness, mild alcohol burn. Pretty well-balanced, if a bit cloying.
