bottle - from the beergeek stall at slunce ve skle 2013. somewhere between red and brown with a thin sliver of a head; plenty of raspberry in the aroma, white grape, lacquered floorboards; some tart forest fruit flavours, hints of brown sugar, oak, some alcohol burn with tart raspberry as compensation

Gurthnar (2092) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Aroma raspberry, quite intense, fresh, at the same time some overripe fruits. Hazy brown colour with floaties. Taste is fruity, moderate sourness surprises you after a moment. Raspberries noticeable. Sweetness in the background, dark beer character hidden. Very good beer, although IMO most interesting for its uniqueness.

fajry (762) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 25, 2014
Fľaša. Tmavšia hnedá farba, pena malá a hneď padla. Vôňa prezretých malín a sliviek, jemne alkohol. V chuti sladko-kyslá chuť malín a v pozadí opäť prezreté slivky. Pozadie veľmi dlhá kyslosť, s jemným alkoholovým nádychom. Krásne ovocné tóny. Telo stredne plné, stredná nasýtenosť. Na druhé napitie je to lepšie a lepšie.

tmoreau (2527) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to snifters, displaying a cloudy, dark brown color that showed maybe a touch of ruby highlighting at the base, with a frothy, tan layer of head foam that reduced down to a fairly persistent ring & film, and left some spots & strands of lacing. First impression was a noticeable hint of soy in the nose that disappeared as the beer breathed, then dark chocolate covered cherry, or in this case, raspberry, and some alcohol readiness. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was initially dry, and continued with red wine notes, and cask bitterness & tannic astringency, as the alcohol got my attention, but remained somewhat in the background. Dryness followed through for the finale. Maybe a little age on the bottle, but interesting, and quite tasty.

JulienHuxley (3344) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle at SSAN V. Dirty brown pour full of chunks. Aroma of tons of old raspberries, medicinal raspberry, light winey notes. Taste is pretty harsh, boozy, old rotten raspberries, lots of red wine, oak, medicinal notes. Palate is rich, full bodied with light carbonation. Bleh.

slowrunner77 (6019) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"Faaaaantastic aroma of raspberries and wine, with a little bit of sweet malt and yeast poking it’s head in there too. Slightly overcarbonated, but no hint of 10%. I think you are just so distracted by the awesome flavor, you don’t notice any alcohol. Fruit forward and sweet, but not overly so. Well done! 9/12 still really good the 2nd time around but well sweeter and boozier."

Yves (2312) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
Shared with Wim at his place. Brown colored beer with small white head and only few carbonation. Fruity apple malty aroma. Medium sparkling palate. Finish is oakey fruited bitter sour dry.
