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.

Sample from bottle, thanks to Viktor! Somewhat hazy pale red/pingisbord beer with a quite nice offwhite/pinkish head. Fruity aroma, glue, raspberries, vinous, strawberry notes, cherry notes, almonds. Flavor is lots of red wine at first, grapes, raspberries, cherry notes, tart, sour, strawberries, woody notes, caramel, horse blanket, floral notes. Sour raspberry finish with cherries, rubber notes and some stable.

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.

Nice berry nose, with big sour finish, acidity high but palatable. A nice one not two type brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
