Bottle shared with the KL tasting crew. Poured a clear burgundy colour with little life. The aroma is big sweet sticky red berry fruits, blackcurrants, cherries, warm boozy alcohol. The flavour is strong sweet with a smooth, rich, oily, sweet red berry fruit, warm alcoholic, light spice palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation. anstei (3797) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 1, 2018
Taster. Pours unclear dark ruby. Aroma is berries and honey, flowers, wood caramel. Body is heavy and strong, intense, clearly honey-based but not lacking of berries. Lots of them, and it works. Also oak. Shows some booze, especially on the palate. Very good!

Bottle, many thanks Nische! Beautiful almost ruby color with no head. Aroma is super flowery honey, forest floor, Polish Półtorak oxidation, I hardly get any of the fruits, they are so well incorporated. General berry and blackcurrant flavours, yes, also some freshness of the gooseberries (which I loved to eat as a child, we had them in our garden). Taste has more of the gooseberries, berries, perfectly mixed with the honey flavours and oxidation. Viscous oily mouthfeel, superbly drinkable. Beautiful; this is super-amazing because it retains the classic honey character and blends the fruit flavours in there perfectly. anders37 (30764) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2018
Bottle @ En Öl & Whiskymässa 2017. Pours a dark ruby red color with no head. Has a fruity spicy berry honey aroma. Sweetish spicy honey berry flavor. Has a sweetish spicy smooth honey and berry finish with weak hints of vanilla. Nische (3618) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 27, 2018
Bottle at home. Deep reddish purple, pretty viscous. Sweet honey, black currant, some sweet cherries. Don't get so much out of the gooseberries. Full bodied and well balanced but lacks a bit of fruit intensity to be really spectacular. cgarvieuk (32744) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 6, 2018
