Scopey (7396) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2011
Bottle from Utobeer (number 725 of 3200). It pours reddish amber, with a big white head. The nose is soft berry, jammy fruit, honey and wood. The taste of tart red berry, strawberry, raspberry, jam, massive alcohol character, wood, touch of tang, dryness and medicinal qualities, with a long aggressively warm finish. Full body, lively carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Too boozy and not enough fruit character and/or depth of flavour to balance it out. A bit of a letdown for me.

yngwie (14143) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle, 375ml corked. It pours an unclear, dark golden body and a minimal sized light beige head. Lightly sourish nose with berries and some caramel hints. Alcohol too. Caramel and raspberry flavor. Someone mentioned licorice. I donít agree, but see what he meant. Full-bodied, warming and quite dry. Well, not my favorite in any way, but far from bad. 111112

KyotoLefty (6704) - Kyoto, JAPAN - OCT 8, 2011
Nice, slightly dry, fruity nose. Strawberry more than raspberry. Dusty, lean. Pale red with chunks of fruit and seeds, lace. Dry, dusty, astringent flavor, alcohol and oak. Clean and dry-ass. Woody. Somewhat abusive. Finish of fumes. Interesting, strange stuff.

phaleslu (6809) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle shared at the STLHops Pinball Party- thanks to the kind soul who opened this! Pours a cloudy reddish-gold color with a small eggshell white head. Aroma of grapes, strawberries, caramel malts, oak, copper-type metallic notes, and apples. Flavor of grapes, apples, sweet malts, spice, metal, oak, and old berries. I wonder if this is either way past its prime or mildly infected, as I was getting the wrong fruits from it. Light-medium bodied, with an apple juice-type flavor and moderate carbonation. Decent beer nonetheless.

TimE (3340) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 30, 2011
Lovely fresh strawberries in the nose with some raspberries, which is very pleasent. However the mouth is cloying, slightly sour and fruit notes way down and whisky notes up. Nice for just a bit but not a whole bottle.
