2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reddish, deep amber body. Fizzy head which dissipates almost instantly. Warm fruity and caramel aroma. Front is thick with malt; then it gets dry and a bit yeasty. Not a bad, but not rich either. Lacks some depth.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber colour, the head disappears in a while. The aroma is yeasty, with caramel hints. The flavour is strong, sour, fruity (raspberries) and sweet (caramel). The aftertaste is quite hoppy and spicy. This beer has a good balance, but overall I cannot say I really liked it.
