KyotoLefty (6145) - 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 (6204) - 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 (3092) - 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.

Not aged well - super fruity and unpleasantly sour. Colour is good but it’s lost it’s fresh edge ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thewolf (11113) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2011
Bottle, bought @ Řlbutikken, Cph.
Pours muddy red-orange with a small, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has strawberries, raspberries, vinious, oaky. Medium carbonation, dry mouthfeel. Mild fruity, very fresh flavour, lots of raspberries, marzipan, vinious, warming. A bit too alcohol-sharp for its own good. Long, lingering sharpish finish.

jvhemert (328) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 12, 2011
AROMA: overpowering fruitiness APPEARANCE: somewhere between amber and golden? Clear, no head TASTE: heavily sour PALATE: medium body, thin feel, lively OVERALL: not my kind of beer, the sour taste is far too overpowering and the additional fruitiness does not help to improve this. Went down the drain...

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. They say third time’s a charm and I was really hoping the third Abstrakt beer would be the first decent one, my experiences with the previous two did not in any way justify the price tag. I had been warned that this beer is prone to foaming over when opened, and it did, a lot. Anyhow, the aroma was apparent instantly. Loads of sweet raspberry and strawberry, finally an Abstrakt that delivers what it promises. Pours a reddish, clear colour with a thin white foam that goes away quickly, beautiful looking beer. Taste is interesting, very interesting, sweet and fruity, very. Slight sour flavour as well. Mouthfeel is thin, almost watery and almost flat, a little fizz, but perhaps this is due to the foaming over. In all, interesting beer and the first enjoyable Abstrakt for me.
