3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 37,5 cl, BBE 23.04.2018. Pours dark brown in color with thick and creamy cappuccino head. Vinous
notes at first - feels almost like some rum and dark ripe fruits being there mixed with some almonds,
sweet malty notes, there’s even some light wooden notes and hints of berries in aroma. It’s just a
wonderful start. And the nose is wonderful throughout the whole bottle, what a treat. Notes of red wine,
some dark fruity sweetness and raspberry freshness in taste. Slightly tart mouthfeel. Underneath there’s
also some sweetish chocolatey notes and more vinous notes. The raspberry steps up a bit and it feels just
more evident here than it was in aroma. Nice and long-lasting vinous notes in aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle @ Christian Firtal, Odense. It looks black-ish, but in reality I think it’s very dark red-brown colored with a medium sized beige head. Complex aroma of raspberry, red and white wine as the label says. Flavor also has raspberry, wood, slightly tart, a bit dry and also clearly red and white wine. This is a very successful brew imo. Very balanced, very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured murky brown with a short-lived head. The aroma picked up lots of raspberries with fruity backing. The flavor found tart raspberry seeds upfront with bread and honeyed notes backing.. slicy and a bit hot on the finish with more vinous notes. Medium-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. a bit on the syrupy side.. aiight.

Dark brown/reddish pour with aroma of fruity cherries and raspberries. There is a definite wine character, as well as some tart. Pretty damn tasty.

Des notes chocolatés, caramel brűlé, framboises et une bonne vague lactique pour enrober le tout...Un véritable ’’sour sipper’’.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle Bought in Riga. Nice head, could have been a bit thicker. Looks like a Quad, smells like rasberryes, and not the artificial kind, but the natural lovely smelling ones. A little bit of alcohol on the nose. The taste is rasberry, a bit sour, and a little bit of roasted caramell and alcohol.
I would buy it again!

Wow! Deep ruby pour with an effervescent tan head. Aroma is raspberries, tart cherries, vinous. Lots of raspberries. Flavor is similar. Raspberries give way to wine and oak. Huge layers. Amazing beer.
