2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5 l bottle from K-Supermarket Länsiväylä, Jyväskylä. Copper color. Sweet and perfumed raspberry and elderberry with some honeyish malt in the background. This is not just a sweet fruit juice, there is some depth, but still this is not my kind of beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Cardinal. A clear, golden beer topped by a decent, white head. Flowery, berryish nose. There’s some resemblence to lingonberry, only it feels sweeter. The flavor is much the same, slightly sour with berries and flowers. Sour, fruity finish. Medium body. A refreshing beer, even though the fruityness is a bit strange. 091106

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[500ml bottle from the brewer’s own stand, Good Food Show, Birmingham NEC] Pours peachy-gold with a large off-white head and moderate fizz. Aroma of berries and malt. At first it tastes light, fruity, refreshing and summery, before a whiff of woodiness warns you of upcoming sourness and dryness in the finish. It’s certainly interesting, but by the end of the bottle my heart wasn’t in it any more and I was quite glad to finish. Difficult one to rate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle sampled@RBNAG 2009, Cardinal. Dark golden/amber body with a dense off-white head. Refreshing aroma of sour berry, fruit and cowberry jam. Flavor is refreshing fruity, light malty, a bit acid and no artificial fruit, that’s positive. Medium to light body, nice and easy drinkable. Not bad as a low alcohol and no Bret fruit beer.
