3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 On cask at White Star, Stoke. Pours red brown, blackberry nose is there. Quite bitter and then the blackberry smooths it out. Decent.
Tried again 17/12/13 @ Congress, Longton. My opinion does not differ from my 1st try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at CP&K. It pours clear amber with a small off-white head. The nose is soft fruitiness, berry, raspberry ice-cream and fruit syrup. The taste is straw, bitter pine, light berry, Ribena, pepper and some citrus with a dry, bitter finish. Fruit is well-integrated and not over-done. Nice fruitiness, decent bitterness and easy drinking.

Cask @ CPK. The pour’s a medium gold color with a tight, creamy head. The aroma’s of soft blackberry jam sweetness. Light lemon peel. Floral countryside. The taste is bright floral hop. Light pale malts, hints of citrus. Just a touch of raspberry ripple and blackberry. Light body, fine carbonation. This is on great form. Overall, a really nice beer. Understated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at CPK, London. Meet the brewer event. It pours clean golden with a nice white head that lasts long. Aroma is hoppy and full of fruits. Some woody notes from the blackberries. Taste is mostly bitter and resiny but well balancved by a fruity sweetness. Hints of blackberries. Long bitter aftertaste. Burps are blueberry-like. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned at The Postern Gate (JDW), York. Golden bodu. Thin white head and excellent lacing. Blueberries, blackcurrant, strawberry, cherry, cascade hops. Bitter with sweet notes. Dry finish. A little gimicky, but still adds up to more than the sum of its parts.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Cask at Chippenham BF] Murky pale amber. The brewer attempts to cover up a pretty average underlying bitter with raspberry leaves and late-arriving blackberries. It’s on the sweet side, a little cardboardy and pretty uninspiring. Not impressed. c5

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to JohnRMurdoch for a half of this one, cask at The Three Judges. Copper coloured, fading white head. Aroma of berries mixed with wheat-like fruits. Blackberries, alright, joined by a fruity touch in flavour followed by a bittersweet support. Different and quite alright to drink (Glasgow, 12.04.2012).
