yngwie (14442) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2010
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

wheresthepath (1660) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2009
[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.

Beer4000 (4768) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 9, 2009
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.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2009
Sampled from bottle@Cardinal, Stavanger. A fingerthick layer of beige bubbles covering a hazed, amber colored body. Inviting aroma from the berries; fresh and slightly tart with a note of lactic acids. A whiff of grainy malts in the background. Dryish, fresh berry flavor. Subdued grainy malts, sour-sweet at first, dries up towards the finish. Discreetly spiced, mildly hopped. Body is light, without being thin. Finish is acidlous fruity, dry malty and rather short. Overall, an interesting and easy drinkable fruit beer.

guzzler67 (1536) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 22, 2009
16.9 oz bottle courtesy of an area distributor who may have been considering carrying this in th U.S. Has a slightly hazed, deep amber appearance with an average size white head and a fair amount of lacing. Fruity aroma dominated by berries, with a sweet malt accent. Tart, slightly sour, grainy, modestly hopped taste. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel. Short lived finish with a peppery/spicy aftertaste.

larsga (6372) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2009
Medium offwhite head. Pale coppery body. Malty strawy raspberry aroma, very harmonic, with milky notes. Sweetish watery earthy raspberry taste with strawy notes. Harmonic. Mid-bodied. Mild, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish metallic raspberry aftertaste with roasty notes. Harmonic, but too watery. The raspberry is not properly integrated, and I don’t like the aftertaste. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)
