3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle from BrewDog webshop. This one pours a clear light amber body with a thin red cut, and it has no head what so ever. The aroma is quite special with some light tart raspberries with notes of rose water and some hints of grass and wet wood. Average carbonation, it’s medium to light-bodied and it has a light oily to watery mouthfeel. You can really taste the raspberries in this one. Light tart but it also has some sweetness that balances this quite alright. Almost like a really really thinly mixed raspberry syrup. Could not sense the whisky barrels at all. Ends quite watery with more raspberries in the aftertaste. Drinkable but not something I have to try again.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2011 Strong raspberry aroma from this dark amber beer with a faint whiff of whisky. Initially tart but becomes sweeter with a subtle malt finish. Maybe needs a tad more malt to round off the beer but a good start. Some whisky notes creep in as the beer warms up. A7 A4 T7 P3 O14 =3.5
second batch: strong grainy nose and taste, a bit of yeasty esters but no sign of the honey or raspberries, very disappointing. Rating revised down.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Rose wine, orangey pink colour. Small white head fades to nothing. Nose is light raspberry, some lager grain. Palate is slightly tart, quite saison-y, tart raspberry and some lager hops, finished with a subtle, spicy whisky heat. Quite fizzy. Surprisingly sour, very refreshing. A really interesting, surprisingly subtle brew.
