Nice cloudy reddish pour with a pink head. Intense raspberry aroma. A hint of cherry, big wine sweetness, a hint of lemon tartness, and some peach. Light grass and herbs, too. Really excellent flavor. Tons of fruit, mostly raspberry, but some blackberry, cherry, and peach. Huge wine flavor and sweetness, oak, mild lemon tartness, and a light herbal note on the back end.

Pours a hazy and reddish copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt, fruit and cherries. The flavor follows the nose with additional acidity. The palate is acidic with sweetness. Overall a good beer.

Sammy (8354) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
Pinkish with a lasting head. Aroma yielding something of a sour berry expectation. It was tart, enough to make it a sipper. Fuller mouthfeel. Tasty concoction, Different, nice.

@ Gyllenbock: Stor fruktig doft av hallon och vinbär. Syrlig och fruktig med mycket bär och en tydlig gräddig underton. Smakrik

gyllenbock (4397) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle bought in Copenhagen in June 2012. Hazy reddish with a small head. What a refreshing beer! A lot of raspberries both in the aroma and taste, also notes of berries and with a light tartness. Not as sweet as expected. Really, really drinkable with a creamy mouthfeel. I must buy some more bottles of this one.
