Mortlach (955) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 18, 2012
30/06/2011 Birra+ (375ml bottle). Degustazione da Birra+. Bel rubino, un po’ spento, riflessi ambrati, schiuma biancastra media, poco persistente. Aroma intenso e assolutamente sgradevole di sciroppo all’amarena, con note zuccherose. In bocca è a metà tra un medicinale e uno sciroppo diluito, un miscuglio imbevibile. Quasi peggio della Raspberry Wheat. Corpo medio, carbonazione corretta. Non capisco che senso abbiano questo genere di birre.

Amber pour, very small light head. Aroma is full of berries, whiskey, yeast, honey, graham crackers. Flavor is sweet, lighty booze, berries, honey, cookies. Fuck yeah, forgetfu with another great brew!

POLK (1944) - Hørning, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2012
1th Despite nose pliers and a good grip, it took 10 minutes to open the beer. 2th After opening is strawberry / raspberry beer on the ceiling. 3th Poured up immediately and you have bottle shower until it is empty. 4th Fine Strawberry flavoring 5th Taste, sour too much alcohol, dry strawberry flavor 6th 15 euros for 37.5 cl disgrace max 2 euro worth

Balazs (750) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 26, 2012
Poured hazy, with a ruby color and a tan, lively lacing head. Fruity candy aroma, berries, vanilla, orange in the aroma. Suprisingly tarty, bitter taste. No sign of alcohol, although warming. Certinaly different than any other beer I had before. Overall, it is outstanding!

SilkTork (5108) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
Brewdog event at the Rake, 7th Sept 2010. Raspberry - musty - oak - sour whiffs. Lovely aroma - inviting, complex and interesting. Rather dry mouthfeel, but not puckering. Whiskey sense to it. Plastic notes from the high alcohol. A serious beer with lots of interesting notes - one of the most fascinating BrewDog beers I’ve had. Lambic whiskey. Tobacco and grass in the aroma. Lovely stuff.

armando629 (2381) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 8, 2012
0,375 l bottle courtesy of Balazs, thanks!
Amber-purple colored cloudy beer with a lot of sediment in the body, small off white head. Powerful fruity aroma like a jam with the berries and orange, woody tartness and lurking hops. Strong personality in the flavor with the wild fruits(less than expected but very well balanced)and a woody tartness, sour and fine carbonation. Yes, this is abstrakt.

jbeatty (942) - New York, USA - JAN 7, 2012
Pours reddish amber, near instantly dissipating head, some sediment visible. Aroma is fruit, honey, yogurt, raspberries in the front, strawberries lurking behind. Really rich fruit characteristics, some whiskey and alcohol in the finish. Raspberry jam in the flavor, followed by bitterness, mitigated slightly by caramel, only for an even more bitter finish of whiskey, oak. Medium mouth feel, light syrup, active carbonation. Overall, I really love the fruitiness in the aroma, but whiskey/alchohol clashes a bit too much with this aspect in the taste...still, interesting for sure.

JohnRMurdoch (2953) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle from Peckham’s Rye. Dark reddish brown colour, good head, cloudy with a lot of sediment. Dry red berry aroma & flavour. A barely drinkable fruit beer that does not live up to the hype surrounding Abstrakt series beers.

Bullit (3854) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Unclear brown - dark orange colour, thin off-white head. Nose is sour fruits, raspberry, a bit alcoholic. Flavour is raspberry, fruity, wood, acidic, alcoholic, metallic. Very dry and fairly sour finish.
