3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very lightly pinkish-coloured head over hazy beer, the colour of warm tomato juice. Fruit-y nose, but even more dry wood, earthy - as potato peel. Also vegetable, smelling like raw peas. I think it’s the elderberry, really. Very dry, fruity, old cookies, vegetable, but all flavours concurring to a good balance. Again, I get vegetable juice, but quite fruity overall. Elderberries, no doubt, but also a pinpoint of wild strawberries (little scarlets). Light, quite spritzy palate, but refreshing. Original, different. Hence: good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted on draft as well as from bottle.
The first sip is very special. The taste of grenade apple is overwellming. On bottle even more as from draft. A very complex beer becouse of the variation of the fruit. A lot of people did not like it, but for me it was very nice

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, clear red coloured beer with some very light carbonation and a large pinkish head. Light sweet, very fruity aroma with some touches of fruit stone. Full fruity palate. Finish is again very fruity, sweet but not sticky, long ending. Very nice for a fruit beer.
