3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Pikkulintu shared with Saintmatty (thanks!)
Poured an completely opaque slightly reddish browj body. Gluey, slightly cranberrieish sweet nose, slightly grainy too. Grainy, sweet taste, some cranberry, creamy, lightly alcoholic and yeasty. Some acidity is always there and it’s not all that bad. Overall a well made beer that grows on you but one bottle at the time is enough.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(on bottle) Murky red beer, steady, beige head; looks akward, but cool. At first a small fruity/sour sent; cranberries allright. Then a new aroma; paprika and charcoaled bellpeppers. tasting the beer, it feel like a juice in the mouth and keeps the tartness from the berries. The taste evolves into gets thicker, more heavy. Gets notes of vanilla, tobacco and honey. A nice, rather complex beer, so different, I really don´t know if I really like it.
