COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special - JDW Spring 2012 Festival
This new ruby-coloured beer is available exclusively at this Wetherspoon real-ale festival, before its national launch. It is infused with Lancashire loganberries, which impart a woodland berry aroma and flavour, resulting in an interesting and refreshing beer.

Spring 2012. JDW, Rochester. Unusual berry aroma and flavour - mix of wild raspberries and strawberries, though apparently it’s logan berries. Fascinating. Warm and inviting, though more like an earthy country wine than a beer.

RichTheVillan (3517) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Retro review from Spring 2012 Wetherspoons Beer festival; dark brown pour minimal head had a session on this and it gave me a powerful hangover. Dried fruit taste.

Weak texture, but bettered by a superbly subtle berryness for its flavour.

Cask by handpump at Henglers Circus, Glasgow (24 Mar 12) - very clear amber ale, good off-white head, sweet fruity aroma, very sweet berry flavour, smooth and pleasant

Shakespeare’s Head Spoons, Holborn. Clear amber beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Sweetish fruits of the forest. Mildly sweet pale malt underneath. Pretty dry finish. Okay fruit beer but too dry.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012
The Larry, Nuneaton, 31/03/12. Copper with a tight off white head. Alarming, slightly acetic, Brie and lime aroma like an oude gueuze. Streaks of mellow oak dampness and lime-dappled spontaneity closing with a wheat finish; some fresh raspberry and mellow acidity. I can imagine the denizens of Nuneaton sending this one straight back but I rather like it- in a 3F-lite kind of way. Refreshing, oddly lambic-accented stuff, and possibly my Beer of The Festival So Far.

Cask @ The Hengler’s Circus JDW. Rich brown colour, good head. Fresh berry fruit aroma. Fruity ice cream flavour. Smooth but a bit watery. Doesn’t taste like beer.

imdownthepub (10651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with slight head. Raspberry ice cream on the nose leading to a very sweet, aspartame Angel Delight type fruit flavour. Yuck.

[Cask at the Back of Beyond (JDW), Reading] Deep amber. Chocolate and wood up front, with raspberry (well, loganberry!) following through, along with a hint of raspberry leaves and fresh blackcurrants. The Bramling Cross hops work really well with the fruit here. It’s on the sweet side, but there’s just enough wood and leaf to balance. It’s a strange and interesting creation, and one that I rather enjoyed - although I’m sure many others will hate it.
