3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy sour fruit aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate duration. This is an interesting beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml brown bottle with cap. Brownish orange, some haze. Head is tan. Nose has berry, red grape, touch of sour, a little dusty. Taste has grape, red berry, winey and a little woody. Lightly sour and winey aftertaste. Overall, a bit unfocused and not as interesting as I had hoped... rating #2600 nonetheless.

Almost clear Brown with lasting, lacing, tan head.
Bruin-like elements like Wood, wine, berries. Medium body and carbonation, but bordering on watery finish. Strange for 8,5%.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Fra fat på Cardinals enestående Brewers’ Night: sweet&sour og forbausende lett for sine 8,5 er en enkel oppsummering. Rett og slett litt rar, og den etterlot seg intet varig avtrykk på sjelen.

@Basunen 14-8-16: trevlig, lite källar-doft. Tydlig syrlig med fina undertoner av torkat frukt. Ganska så trevlig.
