4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Taster from bottle, at Brewdog event at the Rake, 7th Sept 2010. Bright orange with little to no head. Nose has tart raspberry and strawberry with a slightly oxidised edge. Definite contrast between the sour strawberry and the tart, fresher raspberry flavours. There is toasted marshmallow and other whisky & oak flavours here too. The strong alcohol is present but held in check for a balanced finish. I definitely prefer this to the base Zephyr.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
37.5cl bottle at home. Strawberry yogurt aroma with lots of strawberries and raspberries on the nose. The taste is very similar and is very balanced. The strength cannot be tasted. The palate is quite oily but it does not detract from the beer. I’d love to see how the fruit will change over time with this brew.

My love affair with all things Brewdog continues. I really liked it. A gift from a friend, unpexcted too which always makes it a little better. Pours red amber with a thin off white head. Aroma of raspberries, Christmas ckae, marzipan. Some malts in the flavour, alcohol very well hidden. Enjoyed it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ DŘE meeting. Pours slightly hazy golden with a pinkish tone, offwhite head with some greyish segments af yeast / fruit. Strong aroma of sweet fruit, primery raspberries, some cherries, yeast, sugar. Taste is not nearly as sweet as aroma wich for me is good, raspberries is still dominant, yeast, bitternotes of oak, light whiskey. Thin to medium body, high lively carbonation. 200411

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber orange with a off white head. Yeast and raspberry in the nose, quite refreshing. Same in the taste with a very bitter finish. Not as good as expected and the the iggest bang for your bucks. Interesting but too bitter comparred to the body.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a medium ruby-amber, with lots of yeast sediment suspended in the beer, white head.
The nose is full of raspberries and red fruits, with notes of licorice, wood, vanilla, dried apricots, tobacco, oxidized hops.
Off-dry, medium body, medium bitterness.
Fruity taste, lots of raspberries, wood, licorice, spices, burning alcohol, slightly acidic.
Interesting idea, but the long wood ageing has dried out this beer way too much, leaving a thin, metallic, woody, alcoholic shell with gobs of red berries, and an unbalaned bitter finish. (2011-04-09)
