3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corked and caged 330 hand bottled by Reakt and sent in trade a good while back. Pours nearly an electric orange and a clear as a bell thicker off white head. Steady thin carbonation. Nose of tart fruit. Like a cricket bat to the face the oak overpowers the malt. I let it breath a bit and it toned down a fair pace. Still pretty darn tart, but some thin malt tones survive as the booziness makes an asserted appearance. finish is sudden. Looking in the bottle for more.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Rather strange fruit beer. I appreciate a lot of this beers qualities, but at the same time I can see its weeknesses. Notes of berries, chocolate and licorice.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
yellow edges w/ pale red centre, lots of bubbles and lots of particles like fruit bits floating in the beer
almost nothing but strawberries on the nose
med/full body and moderately fizzy
beginning and middle are strawberry flavour and that is almost like a children’s strawberry tylenol (or strawberry koolaid, and there is a certain chalkiness to the nose as well) flavour
the beer finishes with a strong oaky alcohol harshness that leaves a lot to be desired
finish starts dry and fizzy like champaign and ends leaving a very dry mouth.
not my favourite abstrakt. maybe fresh fruit shouldn’t sit in a cask for two years.

375 thanks to Jarrett. Fruity with an almost red ale body and taste. I get the strawberry for sure. At the end of the beer, a slight medicinal taste takes over. Ok overall.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at home. Drunk 8 months after bottling, so maybe not that fresh. A complete gusher, reckon I lost about a third of a bottle. However in the glass, head fades fast. Aroma is intense berries, some plum, sweet and boozy. Taste is full and fruity, very juicy and resinous. Medium carbonation lightens it. Some tartness, mild alcohol burn. Pretty well-balanced, if a bit cloying.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
from erzbierschof.ch - gusher, gusher ...; cloudy brown in colour with a modest foam left; aroma of plum and pear with notes of cinnamon; overcarbonated and very sweet, full-bodied and sticky; a late and solid carbonation; very apparent alcohol and more notes of prunes, residual sugars and hoppy tones - pretty chaotic and barely drinkable

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice floral aroma of raspberries and little less strawberries. Red amber with slight hazy appearance. Pleasant sweet taste with a pretty long fruity dry finish. As good as a fruit beer can be.
