3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, from Hogsback store, at JF’s Calcutta Cup mini tasting - 02/02/13.
Hazed crimson with a thin white head that clears to bubbles around the edge.
Nose is slightly soured raspberries, light sugar, Ribena, raspberry syrup.
Taste is tarte raspberries, some sugars, light mineral tones.
Medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, sweet in the finish.
Ok for what it is - bit of a palate cleanser and probably refreshing on a hot summers day/BBQ.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma acidic, apple vinegar. Hazy reddish amber colour. Taste acidic right from beginning, apples, fruity. Sourness is clearly present, but not overwhelming. Lightest of clove. Not much more. Rather simple and strange, but good for those who like this kind of thing, but drinkability is rather poor. IMO overall average.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rød/Orange med høyt skum med et lite rosaskjær. Skummet blir fort borte. Duften er lett bringebær og gress. Smak er vannaktig bringebærsaft uten ettersmak. Foretrekker helt klart jålebukk fra Hubertus.

Cloudy dark orange color with an off white head. Fruity, wheat, banana and raspberry in the nose. Decent body and a fine carbonation. Not to sweet. Also a bit acidic. The banana and raspberry crashed a little bit. Otherwise a fresh and ok ale. Also some wheat and yeast in the flavor.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice blonde/pink color with a quickly dissapating head. Aroma is kind of a mix of a hefeweizen and raspberries. Nice raspberry with some slight bubblegum/banana-ish aromas. The flavor is interesting with notes of sour raspberries, bread, bubblegum/banana with a dry finish. The high amounts of carbonation suits this beer well. It’s good, but a tad too dry for my liking.
