Fruit beers are sweet arenít they? Not this one. Refermented with the wild flora from the raw damsons, left to sit for months, this is noticeably sharp and dry. Sold out for this year, but another (small) batch is in the works.

Scopey (9033) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Leighton. It pours deep ruby-brown with a small light beige head. The nose is herbal, dark fruit, berry, Dandelion & Burdock, tanginess, McDonald cheeseburger, gherkin and ketchup. The taste is initially of tart fruit, light roast, Dandelion & Burdock, pepper and a touch of alcohol warmth with a dry finish. Fairly light body and fine carbonation. A bit odd to be honest with you... Iím not sure if this one is quite right.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle at North Bar, Leeds pours a deep reddish brown, small head that fades. Carbonation gives the bubbles a rather psychedelic, constantly moving look. Almost hypnotic...ANYWAY. Aroma is red fruits, forest fruits and a little balsamic. Definitely something of a Flemish Red about it. Taste is a little spicy, with red/forest fruits, minerals and earthy notes. Tart, sharp and dry finish. Canít understand the low ratings for this, its interesting, complex, different and tasty.

stravale (2495) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle from Tebay Services [260113]
Very dark ruby, bubbly off white head that dissipates
Aroma - Slight sour dark fruits, slight smoke note, odd aroma, hint of plastic
Taste - Bland dark fruits, little flavour, very boring, soft sour fruitiness
Palate - Soft carb, light soft quite sweet dull fruit palate. Finish is very dry and rapid.
Overall - Very disappointing. Was just so dull

jackl (5806) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Cheers to whoever brought this along! The pourís deep brown with a small head. The nose is tangy, sweet damson, prunes and plum. Mild chocolate, bramble and general earth. The taste is much the same, plenty of sweet fruits, with a dry tangy finish. Almost Dr Pepper-like in flavor. Medium body, smooth. Overall, Iím not a massive damson fan, and I havenít been impressed with any of the beers Iíve tried them in...

Leighton (14006) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle shared at CPK, London - just something random I had kicking about. Pours clearish brown with a light, tan cream head. Appley notes in the aroma. Light sweet flavor with dry wood and some leathery fruits. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately dry finish with light tang, dirt, further leather. Interesting in a kind of academic sort of way, but the beer is impressively devoid of much character. Fairly mediocre.
