yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 12, 2011
Bottle. A lightly unclear, golden beer with a minimal sized, off-white head. Malt forward beer with an obvious raisin aroma. Some citrusy, earthy hoppyness. Dry, full-bodied and a bit hard on the carbonation. Lightly roasted caramel flavor with the raisins shining through. Some bitterness in the finish. Nothing wrong with this one, but it’s really, really boring. 111112

harrisoni (12674) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2007
500ml bottle from Asda, Liverpool. Amber colour with thin beige head. Some plummy fruit aroma with an odd mix of hop on the finish. Bit too sweet in mouth. Finish is decent. Bit of candy sugar. Not a huge fan of this or the cask version either.

thewolf (10786) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle, bought @ LIVA, Kolding.
Pours clear amber with a fine, medium, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet fruitiness, some raisin, caramel, light red apple, herbal hops. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour is soft, fairly malty, caramel, some raisin texture and sweetness, light grapes. Good floral and light herbal bitterness in the finish. Quite fresh and drinkable.

bhensonb (10359) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at The Market Porter, London. Amber color with a good white head. Raisin aroma - light one though. Flavor is mild raisin/dark fruit, a little bitter to go with a little caramel. Seems well balanced. A wheat aspect comes and goes. Weird, but pleasurable. Amazing, considering. My wife spontaneously said it’s the best she’s ever had. Doesn’t finish very bitter at all. Recalls just a thought of the grape sodas of my childhood. The flavor, that is. This is not all that sweet (or dry).

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAY 8, 2010
Clear amber with a smal beige head. Sweet and fruity aroma with rasisins, plums and malty notes. Sweet flavour with malt, caramel and ripe fruits. Finished fruity and dry.

HenrikSoegaard (10103) - Randers, DENMARK - APR 29, 2010
Bottle. Creamy white good mostly lasting head. Orange colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Very week light bitter flavor. Week raisin notes. Short light bitter finish. Watery palate. Not worth the money.
