2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is dark red brown with a big, light brown, head that slowly dissipates to a thin, hazy top and leaves no real lacing. The aroma is sweet, pungent, with notes of molasses, earth, and fruit. The taste is sweet but sour, tangy, with earthy molasses elements, yeast, red wine, and fruit, almost like grape soda mixed with beer. It has a sweetish, slightly grainy finish. It’s ok, but not my style and I don’t really like it.

Dark hazy brown with some red. tiny head. Malty notes of dark fruit, some sour berries, caramel, toffee, spices and little wood develops in mouth. Flavour is mainly sweet with some sour hint in finish. The malt is too dominating.

Very nice indeed. Very sour but sweet at the same time. Nice brown head. One can definately tell it was in oak barrels. Very tart. This is an excellent beer to cook game birds in.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2005 Looks like coke - maybe my bottles were a bit flat. Malty, sour and (here’s a word I’ve never used to describe a beer before) "tangy".
Quite nice, but a bit thin for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Butelka, warka lidlowa do 23/02/17. Ladna piana, lekko kremowa, drobna, opadajaca niestety stosunkowo szybko, ladnie zostajaca na szkle. piwo przejrzyste, brazowo-czerwonawe. Aromat na pierwszym planie estry owocowe (wisnie) i stajenny. czuc, ze kwaskowate. W smaku analogicznie, kwasno (choc niespecjalnie) odswiezajaco, z wyczuwalna goryczka (niska) i wlasnie ta goryczka przywodzi na mysl jakies drewniano-beczkowe skojarzenia (w aromacie ich brak). srednie wysycenie, malo ciala, calosc bardzo odswiezajaca. dobre. z 6ciu sprobowanych petrusow dla mnie najciekawsze i jedno z dwoch ktore mi pasuja calosciowo

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very dark red with a short tan head. Aroma is tart, infertile fruits, some oak, citrus, and horseblanket. Flavor is sweet and very farm animal. A slight pleasant tartness and hints of lemon and a very slight malty bread note. Medium bodied and foamy on the palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells dark and thick, more like malt than beer. Dark but clear, hardly any head, only minimal lacing. Dark and malty on flavour, there is a lot of berries on the after flavour. A bit too much alcohol prescence. Smooth and creamy, but not too exciting on the swallow. Not bad, but a bit of an unusual blend of flavours - this seems more like a beer experiment than a true beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Clear brown colour with red reflexes, minimal white head with decent lacing. Aroma is sour cherry, red wine, a bit of wood. Lightly sour. Lively carbonation, light body. It’s a rather simple beer and not aggressive, so I guess it might be good for people with little experience with sour beer. For me - quite ok.
