Camons (5630) - Hasselager, DENMARK - APR 22, 2011
Bottle @ DØE 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

Neeskens (328) - SWEDEN - APR 10, 2011
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.

TheJestersBeer (2034) - SWEDEN - APR 9, 2011
Bottle #239. 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.

Orange beer with a small head. Raspberry aroma, sourish and bitter. Raspberry flavor, rubber, dry, hoppy and fruity. Alcohol finish.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 3, 2011
375ml bottle split with mcberko. Pours a cloudy dark red/orange with a large white head. Aroma of red berries and whisky. Quite tart and sour which was good, but not my favourite of the series.

375 ml bottle, thanks to Nisse666!
Bottled 08.09.10, sampled on April 1, 2011
Bottle 174 of 3200
Clear copper color, small tan head. Smells like sloe berry mixed with sugar. Sweet raspberry taste. Bitter aftertaste. Dry medium mouthfeel, high dry bitterness.
Nice tart fruitiness, I like it. Though would be nicer still if the alcohol level was brought down quite a bit so you could drink it rather than sip it.

tkrjukoff (4021) - SWEDEN - APR 2, 2011
Courtesy of Nisse666. Pours cherry red with minimal bubbly pink head. Aroma is rasberry, cranberry, tart sour hoppy. Berry sour Mouthfeel. Flavor is rasberry, alcohol, thin body, chemical, a bit odd. Medium Palate. Finishes fruity and very tart, doesn’t really mix well.

mcberko (6017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
375mL bottle, pours hazy dark reddish orange with a towering white head. Strong aroma of strawberries, raspberries, wood, whiskey and booze. Flavour brings out a balanced combination of the above-mentioned berries and wood / whiskey - booze is definitely prominent, though well-worked in for being 10.5%. Slightly tart / sour notes that linger along with the barrel aged qualities. Probably one of the weaker in the Abstrakt series, though this is a damn well made barrel aged fruit beer.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear and brown beer with a weak head. The aroma is malt, cherries, sweetness and notes of alcohol. The flavor is cherries, a lot of alcohol and acidity. The palate is acidic with alcoholwarmth. Overall this beer has too much alcohol.
