Dobre i smaczne piwo z sokiem owocowym. Zapach jest bardzo mocno wyczuwalny taki owocowo-kwiatowy. Piana maleńka i szybko znika. Piwo przez ten dodany naturalny sok jest trochę mętne. Bardzo naturalne piwo z lekką goryczką. Podobne do Belchawena i także ze szkocji

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 07.05.2010
Aroma has raspberries, some grainy malt and hints of hay. Flavour is slightly sweet with raspberry juice, some grain, hay and hints of toffee. Surprisingly balanced and good, I was expecting a sweet berry overdose.

rauchbier (3626) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle, from Beverley Garden Centre. Gold with hints of pink, thin shortlived fizzle of white head and gentle condition. Gentle sharp fruity berry notes in the nose with a slight mouldy eartiness, quite soft in the mouth with a gentle raspberry note that has some sweetness dveloping and a touch of honey, short finish with a brief raspberry note to start and meting into a malty sweetness at the end

jamestulloch (1495) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 6, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2014 Pink/amber body with a flimsy white head that quickly fades. Lively carbonation. Very little lacing. Aroma of grain and berries. Flavour of slightly sour grain, but the berry sweetness add a little more interest. Light body with a thin, watery mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. A simple beer with a subtle berry addition.

Holmen1 (2692) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2012
Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff: 4,25 "golden ale" - ikke mye golden her, mer som bringebærbrus. Tayberry er visstnok en mellomting mellom bringebær og bjørnebær. Hadde foretrukket det som ren tayberry saft og ikke som tilsetning til en tynn øl.

Holmen2 (1145) - NORWAY - SEP 3, 2012
Golden, slightly unclear. Aroma of raspberry soda. How can anything be that nouseously sour and unrefreshingly bitter at the same time, while still raspberry sweet! Yak!

tfredvik (1179) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2012
Ever so slightly hazy orange body with a fizzy white head that vanishes completely very fast, but still manages to leave some lacing. Quite faint malty and fruity aroma: caramel and overripe raspberries and strawberries. Light sweet, light acidic and light bitter taste. Faint fruity flavours with a malty caramel backbone. Decent dry mouthfeel. A bit boring, but not with many serious flaws.
[50 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months after BB date, from Jacobs på Holtet, Oslo]

Ozzak (43) - BERGEN, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2012
500 ml bottle, bought at Vaaland, Bryne. Amber to red hue, with white, frothy foam that settles quickly. The aroma is raspberries and malt, and some earthy basement aromas that rather remind me of too old lager or spoilt bread. Verging on unpleasant. Sweet taste. A bit thin. Not quite sure what to make of this.
