3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample on tap at BeerTemple. Copper pour, slightly hazy, with lacy white head. Aroma of rum punch, peach, grand marnier, rich liquor notes, berries, cherry. Taste of brandy, very winey, cherry, very sweet with strong boozy notes, quite like fruit liqueurs. Palate is rich, full body, sweet, with light carbonation. I actually enjoyed this, albeit only in small quantities.

Pours to a deep ruby body that is glowing with a tall white head. Aroma of bitter orange peel and raspberry with a geueze like funk. The flavor is orange oil with light raspberry. Boozy. Very bitter. Would be better in 5 years.

Thanks to Bill! Poured medium amber with a toasted beige head. The aroma picked up a helluva lot of booze and raspberries.. very strong. The flavor found syrupy sweet and strong raspberry juice and bitter orange zest.. honey and similar malt support.. cloyingly sweet.. hot, boozy finish over raspberry seeds. Heavy-bodied and very hot.. this became hard to drink quickly.

Off copper pour tall white head. Hot aroma lots of hops and alcohol a hint of caramel. This is hot from a distance probably needs a few years raspberry comes out after you adjust. Fruity weird alcohol taste orangy and weird sugary raspberry full palate.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a pinkish Amber with a White head. Caramel malt and tart fruitiness on the nose. The flavour has a solid, thick maltiness with a jigger of fruit juice. Reminiscent of a fruity alcopop except far more serious. The oily citrus and acidity gives the whole affair a fruity feel that you’d normally pick up from hops. This time it’s from adjuncts.it works very well.

Sample at Örebro Öl & Whisky 2013. The smell was a bit stale and oddly funky. Very sweet taste which I enjoyed, but the smell was weird.
