UPDATED: DEC 13, 2011 Keg at BrewDog Edinburgh. Pours a murky dark reddish brown, thin light head. Nose is big, fresh cranberry juice, green apples. Palate is sweet/sour cranberries, wood, some subtle Belgian spicy funk. Tart, puckering finish. I like it.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 11, 2011
On keg at the BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh. Pours a dark brown colour with a thick tan head. A Granny Smith green apple aroma dominates with caramel, yeast and a little alcohol coming through. Flavour is really quite tart with cranberries, Granny Smith apples and lemon notes. Heavy carbonation, moderate CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Quite sharp with cheek-puckering green apple linger. OK.

blafa (511) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 23, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, May 2011.
Sweet and spicy with caramel, toffee, dried fruits and syrup. On top of that a lighter more refreshing sweet note of berries. The taste is full with some fruity character - other then that, wood, dried fruits and warming alcohol.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2011
On tap at Mikkeller Bar. An almost black one, topped by a dense, lasting, finger-thick tan head. The aroma has berries, some roasted malts and sourness and a solid dose of fruits, both fresh and dried. Slightly sour on the palate, dry and full-bodied, and with a nice carbonation. Berries and some roasted malts and caramel in the flavor, finishing with berries and some caramel. A rather lovely beer, complex and tasteful. 110526

AnyJoe (36) - Aalborg, DENMARK - SEP 25, 2011
On tap @ Mikkeller Pours dark brown with red tint and a brown/white head. Aroma has cranberries, very fresh. Hints of jellybeans. Sweet with hops and fruits. Some herbs as well. You can really taste the cranberries. It has this weird sweetness. Hops and herbs along with some candy synthetic sweet taste. A little weird, but I like it.
