Smells like strong old malt vinegar. Call it a wine-beer, fruity aftertaste with hints of apple and raisin. Would not buy again. Had at Holden with my father. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet and fruity, with a taste an smell of oakwood. Refrishingly with a good after-taste. A fine beer for both men and (maybe even more) women. When you first taste it, you will come back for more..

Bottle shared by EDA. Poured amber with a lot of beige head. Aroma is buttery with a little bit of sourness/tartness. The flavor is very fruity (mostly cherries) and also buttery. Very smooth palate.

Pours a thick off-white head. Red, clear and has light carbonation. Sour cherries, a tad floral. Caramel. Sweet, sweet, sweet! Cherries, pomegranate. Light and oily. No fizz... Finish is quite fast, though it lingers a tiny bit. Excellent!

Fruity, sweet and strange, but had a full and even body/taste. Need some tasting before getting used to it I suppose. Very nice brown/reddish color, fruity smell.
