3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light brown relatively small but lasting head. Hazy dark red body. Sweet and distinct raspberry aroma. Raspberry flavor of course but of raspberries both sweetness and a bit of dry bitterness. As far as I remember raspberries taste like that when they are very ripe and just before they rot. Not unpleasant though. Actually I think the high alcohol contents contribute to adding to the similarity to real raspberries.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours deep brown with almost no head. Rather heavy fruity aroma with a roasted malty note. Mostly sweet with an edvident alcohol tone that makes it remind me of some kind of fruit liquor.
Flavor is sweet malt and raspberry again with a tone of alcohol that warms when it slides down. Spices and cake notes in there as well. Strange mouthfeel, first it is almost completely flat, second it has this dusty dryness that feels rugged on my tongue and kills the aftertaste. It almost feels like having dirt in your mouth.
An interesting project, but the balance is just not there plus the alcohol is too evident.
Probably one of the beers from Ølfabrikken I had expected the most from, but also the one that dissapointed me most.

Draught at Horsens Beerfestival. Brown colour with little off-white head. Aroma dominated by yeast and alcohol. The malt is well balanced with a rather funny acidity from the raspberries. Alcohol and raspberry in the flavor. Lasting finish with more fruit.

En lille smagsprøve på Ølbaren. Tak til Engelsmann og Jannik. Uklar rødbrun med meget lidt skum. Duft af hindbæryougurt. Smag af hindbær og lakrids og meget sødme og noget der minder om "lange Jan" m. hindbærsmag.Eftersmag af endnu mere bær, den skjuler alkoholen forbavsende godt.
