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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22-AUG-2014, draft @Mikropolis.
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.

2.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear dark copper. Not much head. Uninviting aroma of green apples and nail varnish. Taste and aftertaste is better, with berries, rasins, dried fruit and chocolate.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Cardinal’s big Brewers’ Night, Dark reddish brown colour. Unattractive aroma, but I find it hard to pinpoint what’s wrong with it. Medium sour flavour, not extreme. A little fruit. Thin body for an 8.5% beer. Not a favourite of mine, but I might sample again and re-rate.
