COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rapture is our full bodied, heavenly hoppy red beer. 5 types of malt and 6 types of hops make for a truly elating experience. Uplifting aromas of grapefruit and pine, combine with a pithy orange and pronounced citrus flavour which is balanced against a deeply rich and malty body. A satisfyingly dry and crisp finish offers your taste buds redemption. Our red ale will take you to heaven and back…

Kauge (248) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2014
Enjoyed on tap at Toit’s in Tallinn; reviewed retrospectively without notes. Colour was reddish amber; it had a small creamy top and left some lacing. Good piney-malty-grapefruity-caramelly taste and aroma, perfectly balanced, with a nice lingering bittersweet aftertaste. Palate somewhat dry, body and carbonation just enough. Lovely stuff! Should re-review in case I ever get my hands on a bottle.

Douberd (2502) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
(Magic Rock Rapture) From cask at Borefts ’14 Amber red colour on the body, thick tall creamy head, with good retention, leaving heavy lacing on the glass. Aroma has light manure, a bit floral too. Taste is floral, with light citrus, maybe some thyme or rosemary, good bitterness, definitely more complex than the aroma. Low carbonation, thin body. Okay beer, quite drinkable actually.

77ships (4215) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 29, 2014
Sampled cask @ Borefts 2014. Thank you! Murky brown, tanned bubbles. Smell is nicer than taste, rich malt, caramel, sugar. Taste is a bit muddled & weak, oily, malt, sugar, caramel, leaves, tad watery, mocha. Lower carbonation, okay for sure but could be better.
