Colour is fantastic at least for postioning and marketing purposes. Pink foam is attractive, too. Wildberry notes, somehow fruity. Itís sweet. Bitterness is low.
I think the packaging desing is really appealing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out extremely red. Malty peat laden caramel aroma. Very sweet taste, much like Innis & Gunnís casked ales. Smooth crisp body. Certainly sets the mood for an Orkney invasion.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml clear glass bottle, bought in Italy. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%
Clear body, bright caramel red colour. Almost two fingers of lightly pink head, froathy, with low retention. Light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is fruity, light caramel, candy sugars.
Same goes for the taste, some hints of fruits but kind of artificial, candy sugar, more obvious caramel, alcohol notes.
Average carbonation, light body.
Nothing too impressive here, it drinks OK but it will be quickly forgotten.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
The only really notable thing about this beer is the colour. The flavor is unremarkable, a fairly bog-standard beer. Nothing to commend. Not terrible, just not noteworthy.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
0,33 l clear bottle kindly provided by a friend of the family. Pours a hazy deep chestnut orange body with a bubbly half moon film. Pungent aroma of sherry, with dates and raisins. Soapy, flat, full bodied over-ripe sweet prune juice with malty hints hidden in the tail.
Reminds me of a wine made from rosehips that I drank once when I was a kid. It had gone bad, and so had we.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml nearly clear (= very pale brown) bottle, kindly shared by abemorsten. ABV is 6.5%. Reddish brown colour, some chill haze. Low carbonation, hardly any head. Strong aroma of dark dried fruits (incl. prunes and raisins), old sherry and oak. Only the slightest carbonation in the mouth. The flavour has notes of prune juice and some oak, but is not too sweet. Minimal hops, bland finish. At least this is an unusual beer ...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Prodotto commerciale e, per giunta, mal riuscito. Aroma insignificante colore brillante fanno somigliare questa birra ad un aperitivo, il brutto Ť che anche nel sapore somiglia ad un aperitivo. Poco corpo e media carbonatazione allettano tentando di proporre un prodotto accattivante, ma Ť nel gusto che nascono i problemi. Si percepisce un qualcosa tra líagrumato ed il frutto di bosco che, personalmente, mi sa di stucchevole. Questa sensazione rimane anche nel retrogusto, rendendo questa birra uno spiacevole ricordo. ---- Commercial product and, moreover, badly. Aroma insignificant bright color make it look like this beer to drink, the bad is that the taste is similar to a drink. Little body and medium carbonation entice trying to propose a product appealing, but it is the taste that problems arise. One senses something between citrus fruit and berries that I personally know of cloying. This feeling is also in the finish, making this beer an unpleasant memory.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours reddish-brown with almost no head, thin micro CO2 with some slow-moving CO2 streams. Faint sweet malts on the nose. Fruity sweetness (7/10) up front, mixed with medium malts, red berries (raspberry/strawberry), medium tartness, with a mild bitter finish. Low-medium complexity, medium depth, good transitions, okay carry, good drinkability.
