3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fra flaske på M2 Cardinal mai-15, og kveldens "ekstranummer". Da den kom etter Prarie Pirate Bomb ble kontrasten voldsom. Denne rødmende munken er supergod hvis du liker hjemmelaget bringebærsyltetøy (og det gjør jeg!), men den blir for endimensjonal, nesten som en avansert rusbrus. Kunne gjerne helt den over en porsjon mandelkjernepudding.

2015 vintage. Pours beige ruby red with little head. Aroma is pungent cherries, black berries, cherry coffee syrup in a good way. Taste is sticky strong thick cherry juice and cherry skins, alcohol backbone, nice sweetness. This is an interesting beer that I surprising really like despite the cherry cough syrup notes. This is what I always wished sherry would taste like.

Beautiful clear red with light pinkish white head. Raspberries shine. Alcohol presence is noticeable. Little syrupy. Concentrated. Rich raspberry and cherry. Enjoyable but I wish there was room for more than just the fruit. However, I think it is a masterful brew.

Beautiful aroma. So light and fresh. Taste is a little heavy, syrupy, and alcoholic based on what I was hoping from the aroma but not bad.

Poured from bomber into a tulip: Pours dark ruby red with a pink head. Aroma is huge raspberry Belgian funk. Taste is fairly sweet but not overly so. Lots of raspberries and other fruit notes, not at all tart which is what I was hoping for. Decent fruit beer.
