2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fluffy, lively but dwindling head over copperish orange beer. Bit smokiness, frequent in cherry beers. Tad of vanilla, and red, if sweet (?!) fruit. Oxydation, oxydated malts (BBD still 2 months away!). Bit of maltsyrup, hardly fruity. Very watered-down grenadine syrup. Medium bodied, feels better carbonated than it looks. What are they thinking in Drammen? Want to wean over Framboesia drinkers?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a deep golden, hazy body with a tint of red, frothy white top.
Aroma of malts, yeasts and berries. Light sweet taste with a sublte bitterness and a light fruityness. Not quite convinced by this one. Not fruity enought to pull off the fruity thing and the rest isn’t too awesome either. Medium body and avg to avg+ co2 levels.

Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Hazy pale amber. Fruity nose with apples and red currant. Mid sweet with some underlying tartness, medium bodied with spritzy rounded mouthfeel. Some caramel and spice, tart red currant dominates. Fairly low bitterness.
