Cloudy rust colour with a reasonable sized head that dissipated quickly. Aroma is quite sweet and fruity - roses, toffee, plums. Has a reasonable body, sweet but not sickly. Flavours are brown sugar, prunes, raisins, malt and grapes. Very enjoyable.

Pivceps (9) - SERBIA - NOV 4, 2015 does not count
Was not excited about smell. A bit butyric acid, slight sherry. Not so good head retention. Also would like a little bit more CO2. Taste haves interesting cherries in it. Nice balanced sweetnes and bitterness. Great beer, but not in my favorites list. Worth trying.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2015
It has a reddish tinge and a reasonable light brown foam. Smells wonderful of malt and fruit, but the smell is not particularly significant. It actually tastes really good fruit, toasted malt and hops bitterness is very nice balanced with the other flavors. The hops do not steal the taste of fruit and malt. I think that it is a great and lovely ale.
