Un peu déçu par cette bière que l’on m’avait présentée de manière très positive. Elle a une belle couleur rouge légèrement trouble mais l’arôme de fruit est très léger (voire presque inexistant). Peu d’amertume ou d’acidité et un goût d’alcool assez fort. Pas convaincu donc, mais je n’étais peut-être pas dans l’état d’humeur idéal pour la goûter...

Non mi ha convinto per niente, forse la mia bottiglia non era in forma, non mi è dispiaciuta del tutto, ma da lì a dire che mi è garbata ce ne passa. Al naso un idea di ciliegia, e in bocca un pò slegata...

Spinata direttamente in birrifico (versione 2013 8,9 Vol). Rosso intenso, schiuma piuttosto evanescente. Bel corpo, amara, ingannevolmente beverina per il tasso alcolico che ha, ciliegie nel finale, ma non troppo opprimenti.

Mortlach (1470) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 14, 2013
14/05/2013 Ma che siete venuti a fà (330ml bottle, 2012 version). Bellissimo color rubino, sangue di piccione, intenso e scuro, schiuma bianca venata rossiccia, abbondante e discretamente persistente. Naso sublime, molto pulito, sentori nettissimi di ciliegia, lieviti selvatici, leggero citrico, fantastica! In bocca è morbida, sentori di ciliegia, una punta di caramello, lieve acidità, finale non così secco, ma pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione medio-bassa. Fantastica, Montegioco non sbaglia un colpo!

Very nice season, fruity taste but not excessively. Lovely amber appearance.

teorn88 (4734) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2013
33cl bottle. 2012 vintage. Label reads 8.7% ABV. It pours deep dark ruby/brown/ purple with a large beige/ pinkish head. Aroma is sweet with molasses, cherries, light funk and some booze. Taste is sweet and lightly acidic with cherries, red berries, somw caramel and hints of wood. Some alcohol as well. Overall, nice complexity and appreciated the natural cherry flavour. Anyways some more fruitiness and acidity would make for a better beer to me.

Bottled at Domus Birrae Murky amber. Almost no head. Fruity and slightly alcoholic aroma; some cherries. Yeasty in flavour along with sweet cherries.

Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown. Bottle from 2010. Pours a hazed ruby grapefruit color. Toast, sweet malt. Sweet and nutty toast and malt. Malt, warm alcohol, sweet malt. Slow sweet bitterness and nutty toast with a light boozy finish.

Bottle 375 ml tasted @ Karhisma Birroteca (Piedimonte Matese, Caserta - Italy). Pours some cloudy and intense orange with red reflexes. NO head at all, even if you shake up the glass. Aroma... uh, where it is? Should someone call a detective agency? I don’t overdo, simply can’t find notes of anything. Maybe, and SO distant, cherries. But you have to apply to succeed. Anyway. Flat body, something malty and cherries again too. Candy sugar, medium carbonation. Harsh finish, not persistent. Totally anonymous, too bad.
