tania_nexust (227) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
On draught keg at William IV. Smells like those gummy raspberry & blackberry sweeties you get. A very light sourness/acidity - light raspberry flavour, could do with more fruit oomph.

TBone (12992) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2013
Keg@CBC2013 Dark red, opaque color, small steady pinky head. Intensive blackberry aroma, maybe some lactic notes. Light to medium bodied. Loveable fresh berries in the tart flavor. Refreshing. Lingering tartness in the aftertaste. Great!

Leighton (11860) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2013
Tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 1. Pours clear, dark red-brown with a foamy, tan-red head. Lacto tang nose with suggestions of jammy dark berries. Good tart berry flavor with light sweat, low sweetness, dried berries. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish with zippy tartness and faint mineral dryness. Fresh and very cleansing overall.

_angst_ (3048) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 17, 2013
Draught @ CBC2013. Pours brownish red with a big frothy pinkish white head that quickly dissipates while leaving a small trace on the glass. Smell is sour and malty with buttered crackers, raspberry jam, hay, lemon juice, sour milk and lemon zest. Taste is heavy sour and malty with wheat crackers, white bread, butter, raspberry jam, lemon juice, hay, dry soil, sour milk and raspberry hard candy. Mouthfeel is sour, tart and light bodied. Finish is sour with buttered crackers, sour raspberry lemonade, sour milk, spoiled butter, hay, lemon zest and lemon juice. Raspberry jam toast with only spoiled ingredients. It’s not for me...

Scopey (7406) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2013
Keg at Old Coffee House. It pours dark ruby-brown with a small pinkish head. The nose is blueberry muffin, raspberry jam, lactic/natural yoghurt and cherry drops. The taste is crisp, tart, lactic, sour lime, sherbet, raspberry, blueberry, blackcurrant, light acidity and a hint of jam with a dry, tart finish. Light-medium body and fizzy carbonation. Clean, tart and refreshing. One of my favourites of the series so far.

Christian (11276) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2013
CBC. Black with a small off-white or slightly pink head. Aroma of fruit and berries, with a hint of licorice, and a touch of diacetyl. Dry and tart flavour with roasted malt and berries in a strange match

jackl (4965) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 29, 2013
Tap @ CBC 2013. My notes had this as ’black raspberry’, but whatever. The pour’s deep brown with no head. The nose is bright red berry jam, fruit by the foot, tart raspberry. The taste is rich raspberry and blueberry comopote. Light citric tang. Tart, clean finish. Wonderful vitality, very nice.
