TheCametron (2285) - CZECH REPUBLIC - APR 4, 2012
Bottle at Bens. Reddy brown with a rapidly disappearing white head. Funky nose. Raspberry and malt. Lots of sour fruit on the flavour. The whisky is there but surprisingly, doesn’t dominate. It’s fairly well balanced. It’s interesting. I’m guessing they won’t break their promise and brew this one a second time like they did with the AB:04.

BenH (3438) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark copper with short lasting white head. Syrupy aroma, strawberry comes through most with toffee, molasses and light whisky, touch of alcohol, slighty herbal, slighty medicinal Taste is a balanced blend of strawberry, caramel and whisky, again slightly medicinal with alcohol in the finish. Sweet with a bit of a burn on the end. I remember this being better when it first came out

EdKing (2318) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from Utobeer. Had this a little while. Seriously tough to get the cork out. Pours red, touch orangey, hazy and lots of bits floating in it. Nose is fragrantly fruity with raspberry, peach and mango. Underneath the sour raspberry notes that are dominating it’s quite malty caramel. Taste is a mix of fragrant sour red fruit, raspberries, caramel malt, and some hop bitter. A lot of raspberry. It’s interesting but not really that well balanced. Sipping it but not embracing it.

espenra (975) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2012
37,5cl at Håndverkerstuene. Golden orange colour with a small head. Aroma is hops, rasberries, vanilla as well as oak and whisky. Flavour is bitter and bordering on sour. Lots of citrus, rasberries. Long, vinious and sour aftertaste. Not a favorite.

dionysus (1485) - Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Bottle pours hazy burnt amber with an extremely small head. Aroma is pretty malt driven with heavy notes of caramel, light whiskey, and even lighter traces of berry. Flavor shows additional notes of vanilla and oak with definite hints of strawberry, but no real raspberry to be found. Overall body is moderate and the alc is hidden pretty well.

Mortlach (1795) - 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.

daknole (10800) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 15, 2012
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!

Balazs (787) - 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 (5508) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, 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.
