3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 don’t agree, but see what he meant. Full-bodied, warming and quite dry. Well, not my favorite in any way, but far from bad. 111112

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not aged well - super fruity and unpleasantly sour. Colour is good but it’s lost it’s fresh edge
