3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Deep ambery brown colour with a mediumsized off white head. Aroma is berries, some wood, mild wine like notes as well. Flavour is raspberries, wooden, mild alcohol, some wine like (tannins?) notes along with some tart other berries as well. This all turns into a quite sweet but dry berryish flavour in the finish and aftertaste. Rather smooth.

Cloudy brown beer. Massive pale apricot coloured head. Strong nose of red wine and a little sherbet. Palate is light and semi crisp. Fresh raspberry, tart but not overly so. A little red wine in the background. Slightly sour orange which has a touch of sherbet. Finishes semi dry and crisp. Fruity tangy beer, a real taste bud tickler!

Wow this is quite unique. Ive never had Sauternes before but I can guess what it tastes like after having this beer. Sweet rich and raspberry forward with some notes of cherry, almonds, vanilla, cola, and balsamic. Quite interesting.
