3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled, BBE 2009) Very dark red with a smallish, lasting and tanned head. Neutral aroma of black currants and some raspberry stones. Quite dry and acidic flavor with currants and some blueberry. Pretty foamy-carbonated, almost medium-bodied, but slightly thin palate. Almost like a fruit beer, but not very enjoyable. "The beer that can make you dream" … of better beers, maybe?
