UPDATED: MAR 22, 2013 Serving: from bottle--purchased at Full Throttle Bottles. Aroma: moderate cherry aroma with raisin and leathery overtones. Appearance: small, fizzy, light-brown initial head that quickly disappeared. No lacing. Hazy, flat, red/brown body. Taste: complex. In the initial flavor, I detected a moderate, bread-like and raisiny taste with a hint of alcohol. The finish is lightly sour and also raisin-like. Duration is longer than average. Palate: light body, dry texture, lively carbonation and metallic finish. Overall: unique and very interesting. I like it.

stevoj (2095) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Initial gush of foam when opening bottle. Pours out reddish brown with very small, oily head. Dried fruits, runes dominate the aroma and taste. Overall sweet nature on this. More fruit and some yeast on the finish.

inbirraveritas (1230) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2014
Bottled, 33 cl. Opal ruby coloured one with a medium sized fluffy beige head on its top, which diminishes to a thin film. Smell is a mix of mild dried cherries, caramel and licorice. Aroma is the same, mouthfeel is slick to oily. Rather malty and dry, somewhat warming finish underpainted by earth and licorice. Decent.

Some light smoke and raisin. Light plum. Slightly murky brown pour. Some basement type aged musk here as well. Light sweet finish. Soft carbonation. Good light Belgian beach beer. Bottle from grape and gourmet.
