fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2011
Corked bottle at Papsø’s; 12% ABV
Dark color, dark ruby; sparkling. Nice, mild aroma; vinous, with berry juice; very light smell of Band Aid or hospital disinfectant; sweat. The mouthfeel is quite dry, and astringent too; if any honey flavor, it’s very low, while the berry flavor is not to strong but at least more evident; unfortunately there is an extremely strong flavor of chemicals and disinfectants. The final as said is quite astringent. Not good, not well brewed.

jesperhammer (2646) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2011
29-MAR-2011, bottle @Papsø tasting. I expect Ribena but this is much more wine-like. Is this really high in ABV? Tart and loads of berries. Fine drink.
