Brigthy hazy berry amber, decent ringed head - looks really traffic light vibrant. Nose is sweet, earthy and spicy pine. Spriteful winey boost, grapey and barely water cordial. Carbonation is surprisingly firm, jewels of sweetness firming up the mouthfeel. Neat sweet spiciness on the finish, linger is nice and bright grapey good times. Really solid.
Bottle, Beers I Hadn’t Known Were Gushers Daisy Tasting, Blend #2, October 9 2013.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At a tasting, many thanks Cuso, smallish head, very cloudy deep rusty red, aroma of bread, cake, light raisins, dried apricots and some oxjdised notes blending in, flavor of dried fruits with some vanila and light caramel, strong cakey jammy maltiness quite sweet almost cloying. Quite nice but a bit heavy, like a fruit tart.

330ml bottle (from trade with Cuso I think!). Pours a deep amber with minimal off-white head. Taste is sweet but balanced with a caramel maltiness underpinning things. Very drinkable for a barley wine. Would search this out again.
