Got this at BrewDog Aberdeen... just freshly brewed. Has a wild berry aroma with clear bready qualities. Really soft and sweet, dark berry taste peppers the drinking experience. Brown red body with a thin yellowed head. Quite a textured sip, no complaints with this beer!

On tap at BD Camden. It pours a bright red ruby colour with an almost not existent white head. Almost looks like a kriek, amazing. Aroma is sweetish and boozy with a good piney hops presence and rhum. Taste is more balanced with hoppy notes coming through. The lingering sweetness in the mouth is more fruity and less boozy, good stuff. Bitter finish. Mouthfeel is medium to sticky with soft carbonation. Overall, a part from the boozy notes in the nose this is an excellent brew.

Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Hazy red brown, thin white head. Jammy strawberry fruits, touch of clove spice, mandarin, light booze. Sweet rich wheat flavours, jammy strawberry, some liquorice, soft yet resinous hop bite on the finish. Very good.

Brewdog Shoreditch 5 Nov 12. Dyprød. Lavt, litt farget skum. Plommearoma. Veldig klar. Smaken har sherrypreg. Tørr frukt. Mandler. Veldig fyldig. Søt ettersmak preget av alkohol. God.

Brewdog Camden. Cloudy amber beer. Decent pale cream-tan head. Softish palate, slightly viscous. Light red berry fruits with rich and bitter marmalade hops. Some alcohol spice and aniseed. Semi dry bitter finish. Interesting beer, not much wheat character but nice berry fruits. Shame the abv was overcooked.

BenH (2239) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 21, 2012
Tap at Brewdog Edinburgh. Pours unclear red with an off white head, I like the colour. Aroma has pine resin, orange marmalade, caramel toffee and then some solvent like alcohol as you go deeper. Taste has a big dose of alcohol, once you get past that there’s a nice blend of resinous hops and caramel toffee. Thick and sweet with a warming alcohol presence. Those beer has some nice stuff going on but it’s a little too big for its boots

Rune (7963) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2012
One-third pint, tap at BrewDog Shoreditch. Dark apricot coloured body with an off-white layer at the top. Red orange together with dried fruits to the nose. Taste of apricot, caramel malts and wheat citrus. Bitter twist to the ending. Full bodied. Warming sipper (London, 05.11.2012).

Scopey (6661) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Keg at BrewDog Camden. It pours hazy deep red, with a thin white head. The nose is resin, pine, sweet red fruit, blood orange, caramel and alcohol. The taste is red fruit, pith, pine, resinous hops, caramel, leaf, light jaminess, slight stringency and alcohol warmth, with a pleasantly bitter finish. Medium-full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Decent.
