3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep coppery amber body, large creamy off-white head. In the aroma, pomegranades and orange peel does quickly come to mind, but since I just read the label itís hard to discern the information influence. I think I need to stop doing that until after Iíve written down my rating. :-P Hints of cinnamon and caramel with some mellow herbs in the back. Taste is fruity red berry and pomegranade tones, lots of bitter orange peel, caramel and traces of nuts and nougat in the back. Pleasant and original. Full body, medium carbonation. A well made and original fruit/brown ale brew from Kissmeyer.

Shared bottle @Papsoeís. Clear mid-brown body. A ring of beige bubbles on the surface. Rounded malt aroma with spicy herbal, light citrus-fruity tones. Fresh yeasty flavor, with som fine fruit tones. Slightly unfresh malt character. Well-bodied. Soft prickling carbonation. Lightly spiced and zesty endnotes. Pretty good, pretty unusual. [14.07.12]

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.65l bottle. This is a light cloudy amber-brown one with a medium sized light bubbly beige top. On the nose itís light spicy and sweet with tones of wheat, oranges, dark caramel and a faint whiff of cardboard. Quite nice flavors. Not directly low on the bitterness, but itís definitely not to hoppy and perhaps a tad on the sweet side. Itís soft to average on the carbonation and it has a light gliding-oily mouthfeel. I get sweet licorice in the taste along with a zesty-bitterness. Oily orange zest I beleive. Some mild spicy touches in the flavor also, and a mild wood- and dried fruit like dryness. Yeah, I find this interesting and I like how it taste. 07.10.2012
