Tasting at ZBF. Pours a deep clear amber with good retention on the head but no lacing. Sweet barbecue aroma with light smoke, sweet cherries. Taste is syrupy sweet with something I can’t place that is a bit weird (old tar ?) plus some molasses.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
25cl bottle from Dranken Geers. Clear deep ruby, thin tan head. Slightly malty sourness on the aroma. It’s a bit like a fruity brune. Some ok fruit, some drinkability, some fruitiness. Bit of sourness, which comes from the plum and dark cherry like fruit. It’s pretty decent if not quite at the level of repeat buying
