3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. 2011 vintage, 9% ABV. Just a thin layer of beige head on top of the slightly hazy golden-orange body. Ligthly candyish raspberry aroma with some caramel hints and a touch of sugar. Tart, almost lemony raspberry flavor which is also a bit sweetish and almost artificial. Not much alcohol detected. Medium body, tart. Some sweetness in the finish. Well, not a bad one in any way, but I’m not impressed. 120326

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice red/pink color. Smells like a clean crisp sour. Smells a bit like vinegar but not overly acidic, also getting some raspberry in the nose. Taste subtle sour funk and fruit. Nothing too impressive but still well done.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Tastes like strawberry or raspberry yogurt. A nice fruit beer but coudl ahve used some more sourness and acidity.
Edit: Had an older bottle cellared at proper temps and wow it got better, sourness is there, a fine brew.

3.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful red coloring, and an extremely tart aroma. Sharp and tart initially, but after it settles on your tongue the raspberries and sour notes of flowers come through nicely. Very good (very expensive) beer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is bright cherries, aspirin, some brett farmhouse yeastiness, lactic yogurt, and lemon peels, finishing off in an overripe cherry fashion.
Quite nice and sharp!
Pour is spritzy and lively, but quickly dissipates into a light, headless ruby concoction.
Taste is spritzer water, lemon peel, and watered-down cherries, followed by oak and yeasty funk,, a slight hop bite, and plain yogurt.
Finish is extremely carbonated, aiding the dryness of the beer with a acidic cherry kick.
Quite good, but not amazingly so.

Pours a red/bronze color, not much head, no lacing. Aroma is berries, grapes, and oak, flavor is the same. The taste is akin to a dry red wine. Very delicious beer.

Bottle @ Monk’s Sveavägen. Red colour with no head. Fruity aroma of raspberries. Light raspberry flavour. Not as strong fruitflavour like some fruitbeers tend to have. More subtle, much better.
