2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
18/I/14 - 33cl bottle @ RBBWG III, my place - BB: 25/VII/13, bottled: 25/VII/13 (2014-85) Thanks to 77ships for sharing the bottle!
Clear red brown beer, small beige head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: bit smoky, grains, hint of mocha, hay. MF: ok carbon, light to medium body. Taste: grains, bit smoky, mocha, bad chocolate, some coffee. Aftertaste: bit funky, overripe fruits, caramel, dried fruits, smoky, earthy. Pretty complex for a Middle Eastern beer, but still not very good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
33 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Obtained in a trade with tlahav. Pours a dark red pomegranate-hued dark brown with no head. Smell tart, light vinegar, red berries, this doesn’t feel entirely right, not per se off-puting, it isn’t too good either. Tastes of bitter leaves, hebs, smoke, red berry sourness, tangy. Touch less carb. I doubt that they intended it to be this way, nice effort I suppose from Palestine but infected sadly never-the-less which appears to be how it always is going by the other ratings.

Bottle from Beer Market dated July 25, 2013. Pours a dep opaque brown with frothy tan head. . Odd winey aroma carries into flavor and detracts from even dry/aweet dark malt character. Disappointing, cannot tell what they wanted to do.

Bottle, thnx to Tomer. Pours a clear dark brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is very malty, fruits and quite promising. Flavour seems a bit infected I guess, sour fruits and Brett-like characters going on that doesn’t really suits Mr. Looking at older ratings showed that is wasn’t any sour before, most sour trails come from pay few months. Seems like am off batch to me.

Thanks Cuso. Interesting experience to taste this beer, but one time is enough. Aroma is very nice like plum juice. But taste is like sour plums :-)
