Rune (11341) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2009
Brought to the rating table by faroeviking, thanks. Hazy amber. No head. Sweet dried fruits and nutty malts to the nose. Cherry-like taste with a touch of almond and sweet malts. Short ending of bitter fruits. Alright, but not that well balanced (CBF, 16.05.2009).

Soenderskov (69) - Dragør, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2009
Et spændende projekt, desværre er den lidt sur i smagen, dette må skyldes kirsebær. men en øl som der er en god base i at udvikle.
